A Lot of Good To Say about this Camera, A few Small Bad things
Bought Aug 1st 2013. Had the Camera 2 weeks. The Camera is Very easy to use. The Camera Takes Very good Pictures. The 4 way Selector Switch on the back Works Well even underwater with scuba gloves on. The Menu is long, but is full of features that are actually useful. Having said all that..... Learning the GPS function, I thought I had it but guess not. I want it to tag the pictures. If I format my memory Card, does that turn off the GPS feature? Probably the biggest Complaint is: Lens Cover? It would be nice to have a lens cover to protect the lens when transporting the camera. Placing it in a small camera case is okay, but it is harder to look into a black case and make sure there is no debris to scratch the lens. If you had a Silver Dollar sized Lens Cap, that would be easier. Then I lost the Lens Bezel on my Second Dive, don't know how. Someday it maybe found by another diver. What exactly is the function of that bezel? In light of these small issues, I WOULD buy this camera again. I have had several other point and shoot, this is the best so far. I also have had several Canon DSLR's 7D with L glass. This is my second Olympus. So Far I really like this camera. I have shot a few hundred photos and a couple of hours of Video.

Hip pocket wonder
This is my third, and best, Olympus tough style camera. First one was lost under 20 feet of muddy water while cliff diving (someone else, not me) and second one was filled with salt water after five years due to operator error. Not only does this new camera solve the problem of my operator error due to the double latch system, the ability to add a telephoto lens (which I did) AND the Automatic scene mode [where the camera is smart enough to realize I am taking pictures of a sunset or on a bright beach] are a gigantic step up from my previously well used model. As a definite side benefit, is the similarity to using almost identical functions as my prosumer level DSLR camera {...although a couple of buttons between the two are reversed and I tend to forget which camera I am using and have to visually check while the learning curve is in the initial phases.} In summary: A GREAT PURCHASE, especially if you can obtain it on sale!

Great Upgrade
I lost my Tough 8010 in a rafting mishap. While I may try to look for it, I quickly took advantage of the situation and ordered the TG-2. The pictures so far are a great improvement over my previous camera. Super shots right out of the box. Did not read the manual yet. I hike, bike, kayak and scuba dive and need a camera that can hold up. I can't wait until I can take it diving. I hope to replace my underwater camera with it in the future if all goes well. I will be investing in the assorted accessories for now. The downside with the camera. I would like a lens cover for the camera itself. I will try to find one for it later. Also, I wish it would have a wireless remote to operate it in addition to the timer.

Great life proof camera
I just recently bought my TG-2 iHS, (June 2013), and played with it for about a week, before I took it on a 9 day cruise vacation to the Caribbean. It worked perfectly, I dropped it on the ship's metal deck and in the mud in Jamaica...took it snorkeling in the Cayman Islands & in Cozumel. Took pictures inside in the ship's show lounge, at the pool and on every island we hit. And, the pictures all look great... I like the feel of it...nice and sturdy. The charging system is odd, Olympus needs to supply a separate plug in battery charger, so we can have a charged backup, if needed. Overall, my experience has been outstanding.

Great camera for novices
I needed a camera that could withstand the bangs and knocks that I dish out. This camera fits the bill!!! I dropped it while unwrapping it. Thought to my self, "crap, that is shot to he#$ now!!!. Picked it up, inspected it, turned it on, and wow--it works!! Good looking camera, has a sturdy, well built feel to it. I ordered the telephoto lens also. Took the red ring off, put it back in the box, will use the lens cover and ring adapter or the telephoto lens all the time. Ordered an extra battery to go with it, which is a good thing. Don't know if I had charged the battery that came with the camera all the way up or not, but did not get much of a life out of it. Going on vacation in a week, will know more about it then. Taking a cruise in Sep, will do some snorkeling with it, hopefully, the waterproof claims will be true.
