Summary: We took this camera on our first cruise so I wouldn't have to carry my DSLR. The pictures of the beach and butterfly conservatory turned out great. I didn't have as much success with the night time shots or fast moving objects but that's only because I'm used to a very fast camera that I really...
Great 'beater' camera to take where you won't take your 'good' one

Summary: I bought this camera to take with me when I don't want to risk damaging my dslr. The camera works fine for outdoor shots and is great for the occasional dunk in the pool or using when boating or at the beach.
Summary: I bought this in red, today, from Walmart for $49.00. That's Right!!! $49.00 plus tax. Beware, you need to buy your own XD card. I had a Fuji camera that took an XD card, so I was ok. It's not the best camera but it's not any worse than a lot of them that you pay a lot more for.
Summary: my husband bought this camera while he was deployed and it took good pictures especially for the price. when he got home we took it to the pool and took several pictures and they came out clear and it did NOT flood. maybe because it only went down about 3 or 4 feet but that is good enough for me.
Summary: I purchased a refurbished model of this camera prior to vacationing to Hawaii. After reading some other reviews about the camera not being waterproof, I took a backup disposable underwater camera, and kept a cheap memory card in the Olympus just in case it flooded. It did not.
