Ultimate traveler's companion
In four months I've tested this camera against all its natural hazards. Beach sand, ocean, and pool in San Diego and the very cold snow in Tahoe. The effortless pictures speak for themselves. This camera is an absolute champion and despite not having the zoom my old Sony HX9V had, it does things and goes places the Sony just can't. The TG-1 is my little companion and complement to my OM-D.

Excellent, except for ticking noise during video.
It's an excellent camera for stills. The sharp f:2.0 fast lens, that goes from ultrawide to modest telephoto, and the low-noise sensor, means that it's useable long after any other waterproof camera gives up. I've had it for 6 months and love it. Except for one problem: During video, the camera autofocus often starts making a clicking/ticking sound, similar to an old 8mm movie projector or a mechanical sewing machine. The camera mike picks up the sound, and in playback it's so loud, that it overwhelms all conversations. Just google "Olympus TG-1 clicking noise". There's a workaround - record videos in "underwater snapshot II" mode. It shuts off autofocus, so no ticking. Unfortunately, it also shuts off zoom and auto white balance.

Love it
I love this camera! I got it because I have bad luck with cameras. I figured a tough camera will last longer then the normal. I have not tried all of the functions on it, but it has some cool effects. I took it to Niagara Falls and did the Cave of the Winds tour, I stuck it right into the falls and took a picture. It turned out really cool. I use the camera for my photography class. The photos it takes are comparable to a professional grade camera. I bought the tele-converter lens. I took it to a football game. My sister took many photos with it and they turned out great. It is a little weird getting used to it, but it is still cool. I was a little disappointed with how long it took for the camera to take another photo, but I found out if you press the shutter depressor before the camera is ready it will take another so it is not that bad. I do recommend this camera

Best Point and Shoot out there!
This camera definitely lives up to the "Tough" name. It has been spelunking with me, dropped in rivers and mud, fallen off of a roof, hit directly in the lens with brass from shooting, even seen its fair share of overpressure situations. The video quality is on par with my other waterproof camera, but with better sound capture. Picture quality is out of this world, especially for a camera at this price. It comes packed with effects and settings that will get that beautiful or dramatic scene that you wanted to capture. The included editing and viewing software makes uploading, doctoring, and finding your pictures a breeze. You can plot and search pictures/events by face, and even on a world map to see where you've been(if utilizing the GPS, of course). This is my first Olympus product and I can say that it will not be my last. I highly recommend this camera to novice and professionals alike.
