I bought this camera because it was waterproof and my family loves to be in the water! The fact that it could withstand being dropped or stepped on was just an added bonus! But, when I started using the camera, I truly began to feel lucky that I found this camera. It has amazing photo quality! I love all of the features, including the different scenes for taking pictures and the magic tool for cool effects (soft focus, pastel, punk). The Beauty option is awesome, as well, and we've been playing around with that, eliminating the dark circles under our eyes and other imperfections! Truly amazing camera! Well worth the price!

Love this camera. My previous camera was an Olympus Tough series that I owned for about 7 years. Other cameras I have owned in the past have never lasted that long. The camera is great especially if you have young ones that might get a hold of it. Very durable and love the waterproof aspect since Im always at the beach.
The only complaint I have is the circular dial to change the settings is a little looser than my previous one. So if I take it out of my bag to take a picture 9 out of 10 times the setting has changed to something else.

Best camera for an outdoor couple like us. We spend a lot of time outdoors and in the water and this camera was lost in the lake for 3 hours and it still works perfectly. Best camera I've ever owned!

Well, Since Olympus began making the tough series, I have been buying the tough series. I decided to buy 2 of these, both of my employees are very different picture takers. We take pictures inside of very dark, sometimes very dusty environments. We have the cameras strapped to our necks as we climb a ladder 100 to 150 feet in the air, with steel on the oppisite side of the ladder, Does it smash into it, Oh yes sure does. Does it still work, OH YES YES It still does, are the pictures wonderful regardless! oh yes indeed, they sure are. Some times you can take pictures in the darkened room with no flash and they are great. Colors quite important in the industry I am in, as rust comes in all different shades of bad.
Easy to use, dependable, tough, small, easy to carry, great battery life, easy tap, huge zoom, and drop it intentionally it wont break. I am a true beleiver in Olympus and any time I called Customer service they have been hugely helpful. A++++ Olympus this is a keeper.

The picture quality, display, functionality, and overall build of the camera is outstanding. The pictures are great and it is designed to take a beating! I really really want to give this camera 5 stars but....
When taking video there is a mechanical clicking noise from inside the camera. Once played back, the clicking noise can be heard throughout the entire video. From other reviews I've read, the TG-2 has the same issue with video.... It gets worse when I called customer support. First off I couldn't understand what the lady was saying and she couldn't understand me, then they expect me to ship it back to them on my dime.... I am just dissapointed.
My rating: 2.5 stars
