I bought this camera because my wife and I wanted to get a camera that was durable so we didn't have to worry about it getting wet as we have kids. When were on vacation we decided to take it snorkeling. After one trip in the water, for about 10 minutes this camera has already had water penetration to the battery compartment that corroded the USB terminal. I HAD THE CAMERA LESS THAN ONE WEEK when that occured.
I thought no big deal I'll send it back and hopefully the company will make this right. So now I will send the product back and hopefully they will replace this camera. But now I HAVE TO PAY TO SHIP IT BACK which I think is ridiculous as it is covered under warranty. Why should I have to pay to ship a defective product?
I will re-review this product after this issue is resolved and I actually get to use the camera.

the camera takes good pictures but I took this on vacation and took many movies only to find that I can't find a program to play them back on the PC. I did find that when you first put it underwater a few bubbles come from around the latch but no water gets into the camera

I have owned several waterproof cameras over the years. And this camera is excellent in all fields. I have dropped it on a jetty, in the sand and the ocean. Bring it home soak it in fresh water and good to go. Takes some amazing pics.

This is probably the 6th digital camera that i have purchased. . . we receintly went on vacation to a place with a water park. . . I took the camera with me, and got some great shots of my family while being in the water with them. also this camera is safe to give a three year old. the durability and versitile uses of the camera and video that this camera has out performs all the others that i have purchased. i am still learning all the features of the camera, but if they perform as well as the few features that i have used so far, i will be very pleased.

Fit and finish of the camera is high quality. Any camera I ever owned seems flimsy compared to this one.

I have an old model of this and it just broke on me after having it for 6 years. Not waterproof any more and a little disappointed but all things considered I would definitely recommend this camera to anyone interested in a camera they can take anywhere. Going to buy another for sure.

This is our second Olympus camera and we actually dislike it. When you zoom the photos are always fuzzy, the subject in any setting indoors is always whited out. The flash always goes off in the auto setting. There is no setting that takes several frames in a row for a hard to capture shoot like our old one. Outside photos turn out well except of course in zoom. Also the camera is slow for shot-to-shots. Now after about 7 months we are loosing photos to a "picture Error" so we have to buy a new one.
We loved the last one we had that was also a tough series and when we lost the first bought the same to replace it, when we lost that we wanted another but it was no longer in production so we selected this one.
