The camera operation and the picture-taken under water was superb. Float strap is a must. I was snorkeling in the Caribbean when I encountered a Barracuda and a sea-snake in two different occasions. You have to be ready for the unexpected and I have now posted my memorable event on Face Book. The camera travels well ready for pictures whether it is under water or not. For macro setting, a beam of light will highlight the subject for you if it is too dark thus, enable you to take the picture .

Love the camera - good photos and more features than I will ever need as a point & shoot consumer. Battery charge is pretty short (a slightly smaller screen would've satisfied me, if that would've increased the battery life).
Most info points to the TG-620 having last years Truepic V processor, not the new Truepic VI chip. Seems Olympus may have just ported over the TG-630 specs when they discontinued the 620...or did they start putting the new chip in just before discontinuation (?)
I also had trouble returning the camera (sent me the wrong color). I chose to exchange for a different color, but never received anything. After an entire month, I called them and they acted completely clueless. They had to search for my return, then sent me the right camera.
Poor CS, contradictory specs info, but great products.

Wonderful point and shoot camera. Easy operation and beautiful pictures. Good video too. It's built tough like the name and if your looking for an easy to use waterproof camera you won't go wrong with this one. My favorite feature is simply how lightening fast it is to start up and shoot. Hit the on button and ready for my first picture in about a second. Two day's of kayaking and lots of pictures plus videos and the battery still shows full. I'm very pleased to say the least.

I love this camera! I work at a day care center with young toddlers and this camera is perfect. The camera is small and compact, making it super easy to carry around throughout my busy day. Taking a good picture is not difficult with this camera, even when your subjects are running amuck! I don't have a lot of time to fiddle with the settings and with this camera, I don't have to. I can just point, shoot, and move on with my day. This camera also definitely lives up to it's name. It is tough. My kids have dropped it on concrete, I've dropped it in a pool of water, and it is truly kid proof. I would recommend this camera to anyone who has kids, works with kids, or just wants a camera that can keep up with their busy, and sometimes tough and busy life.
