I previously owned the olympus tough 6000... it was a good camera and served its purpose but I've recently upgraded to this new Olympus Tough TG-1. I spent months trying to decide if I wanted to upgrade to a dslr, but then came to the realization that I need to have a compact, waterproof and shockproof camera due to the extreme conditions I encounter on many of my travels. So far, this is the greatest investment I've made! I love everything about this camera. Battery life is incredible! The features are great, and I'm excited to soon try out the attachable lens! I've posted a few pictures so you can see for yourself! If you're wondering if you should purchase this camera, I'd say YES... It's worth it!

In the past I have not been an avid photographer, primarily because I cant seem to take great photos, but I do a reasonable amount of traveling and a lot of backpacking, hunting and fishing. I was in the market for a camera that would take the abuse I gave it but would still take the quality photo I expected of it. This camera does all that for me and much more. It user friendly and has just the right amount of feature, not to many that I'm over whelmed and not to few that I can't get the photo I want. Overall I couldn't have been more impressed with the quality of photo I was taking.

bought this camera about 2 weeks ago and was absolutely amazed by it
it turns on almost instantly, so its easy to capture moments that might not last too long.
iv taken over 1000 pictures with the tg-1 already and found that i love having the GPS show where the pictures were taken...also if your hiking on a trail and take pics throughout your hike you can look back and see where on the hike they were taken...but... for some reason the GPS function has stopped working for me, iv tried to update it using the GPS utility that the camera comes with but still doesn't work, camera just freezes when i try to turn the GPS on. but other then that problem the camera sells itself absolutely love it!!

I have read about this camera for three months waiting to put my hands on it. I have only used it for about three days. So I will post more once I put it thru a good trile.
Out of the box this camera feels great. Light, FAST,seems well built. Operates very easy, user friendly.As far as I am concerned so far the top point and shoot to date. A little pricey for a point and shoot but I have no regrets spending the money for what it offers. Crazy camera !

The TG-1 is everything a spontaneous person is looking for. I previously owned the TG-610 which I also loved, but the TG-1 is beyond amazement. With faster shooting, amazing filters, quick editing, and HD videos nothing tops it. The first day I put it to use, my friends were amazed to see the quality, and even more amazed it came from a water proof camera. This camera will never leave my side.

Received it this week and have found it so easy to use, everything about this camera feels tough and built with quality. I'm looking forward to taking this out on the rivers to really put it to its full potential.

I am a big fan of Olympus Cameras This is 5th olympus camera I have bot. I have the older film models still working. Now the TG-1 iHS PRO:
Scene selection is excellent, Magic filter is boon , Tap function is very functional , Wide angle photography ultimately made possible, eye-fi compatibility is great gift, GPS works great. Pictures come out very sharp super clear,
Some functions i have not used but will keep updating once i use them.
No Lens cover or a camera cover, the microphones are blocked when holding the camera though manual tells and teaches how to hold it but with years of usage the hands go back the same way holding the camera.

1) For a 399$ camera Olympus atleast should have provided with a 4GB SDHC card.
2) No Lens Cover
3)Cautious not puttong your fingers on the microphones when recording. This makes it difficult to hold the camera.
1) Nice and light
2) Scene Mode
3) Magic Flter is excellent (Pic Takensee below)
4) Tap Function
5)Eye-Fi compatibality ( Pretty fast transfers no wires needed)
6) Indoor picture quality is great
Many functions but yet to use them. Will update accordingly.
