Waterproof... Not really!
Bought the TG-870, last Thurs for vacation and it failed as soon as it hit the water. We went snorkeling and stopped working because water got in it somehow. We didn't go past 5ft of water. Will return and buy a GOPRO.

Great underwater camera
My dad got me this camera for a long trip in Asia. I used it when going to beaches, scuba and snorkelling. I even brought it inside mud baths and inside pools. The pictures I took are amazing and the camera is in great shape after all it went through! Love the flip display! Only drawback is that as soon as it starts to be a little dark outside, the underwater pictures don't come out as nice.
