So far so good...
Wanting to always capture the actions of our 4 year old son, I bought a close to professional camera. Unfortunately, it's just too bulky to always carry around. Living in florida we will most likely be at the beach quite often so taking care to not get the camera wet was paramount. We needed something small and resisitant and came across the Olympus. At first I was skeptical so made sure to get the extended warranties. Took it to the pool, took pics and videos underwater...absolutely beautiful results! SO far so good! The only drawback I have seen so far is that twice I had to reset to get it going again. Other than that, no hitches whatesoever! Great purchase!

Great Camera for Active Folks!
I have had this camera for several weeks now and taken many photos with it. I've tried out most of its image possibilities (e.g. "magic" setting) and found it to be amazingly good. I have a habit of wearing out zoom lenses within 2 years--probably because I do a lot of close-up photos and our dusty climate. This camera only has 5X zoom (compared to my last camera with 18X zoom), but the photos are very clear so I can use my photo editing software to enlarge any area of any photo I want. I am especially pleased with the water-dust-shockproof feature. I kayak and hike a lot--all things that can lead to problems with regular cameras, especially in Arizona. So far, no problems. It is great to be able to take the camera out on the kayak and not have to encase it in a special case (which also degrades the photos). I also like the weight of the camera--easy to hold in my hand and know that I am holding something--the camera feels solid. I can't tell if the camera will outlast my others yet, but with the smaller, sealed zoom and the macro settings on this camera it should do well. The camera also fits nicely into a pocket or belt pouch so that it is immediately handy for that once-in-a-lifetime photo! In short--I love the camera and would recommend it to anyone.

Great flexibility and quality
For years I've only owned OLYMPUS products. I have an E-5 and my wife uses an E-30. We also own the smaller cameras as a means to capture shots outside of a formal photo session. Very handy. In terms of functionality the 820 as well as other OLYMPUS products is seamless. To this day neither one of us has had a single problem with their products.

Works well for what it is
I got this to use on the water, boat and snorkel. So far, no problems. It is not a DSLR, so not all the manual options are available, but by playing with the settings, you can get most of the flexibility you want. Haven't used it under water yet, so we will see. Pictures so far are pretty good.
