My TG-830 dead experiences
I have had two bad experiences with my camera, it stopped working, both related with trying to use it in a hot environment, a national park in the desert, where the temperature was high, 112 fahrenheit (more than 38 celsius). The bad thing is that the battery was hot and after cooling it down, fortunately I was able to turn on the camera . But my other two cameras (Canon and Nikon) didn't suffer similar problems, and I was using the three of them in the same conditions.

Tough but unreliable
I bought this camera just over a year ago to replace my Canon. I snowmobile in Canada and wanted something that could withstand the cold and take great pics and HD video out on my trips, as well as take a beating from 4 kids. Sadly this camera was a big disappointment. First - it's broken after just 13 months (very little use) - after plugging into my computer it locks up and won't tun off or respond to any button functions. Of course the warranty is just 12 months. So I'm up the creek - Talk about Manufactured obsolescence! Second it took poor pictures on the auto setting ( where I needed it too most) and has too many scenes to choose from on the scene setting ( where picture quality was better but who has 20 seconds for every picture to toggle through scene choices?) Finally, I found the quality of the Video to be poor - even on its best setting. Pluses? It was tough and worked underwater and in the cold. It just didn't last or provide high quality pics or video. Can't recommend and am shocked at how many people here do.

Awesome Camera
I got this camera after I had a S/W series camera stolen from my apartment on Christmas Eve by a friend of a friend named 'Bear'. I LOVED my Olympus Stylus 770 SW and took it EVERYWHERE! It allowed me to take photos from places I otherwise wouldn't have been able to! I plan on taking this new Tough series camera all over the Highland Lakes and putting it to the test! So far, I am very impressed with the video options, new interface and the large number of features! Thanks Olympus for making a great product.

I purchased the TG-830 3/25/2014 at Boolchand's [5124 Dronningens Gade, St Thomas, USVI 00802] while on vacation as my other camera was becoming erratic.  After unpacking the camera, reading the instructions and charging the battery the shutter functioned erratically.  The only way to take a still photo is to repeatedly push the shutter button until it took a photo. Upon return to the continental USA, I looked for any software updates and tried to set up the GPS function. I use a MAC.  I downloaded the MAC version of OLYMPUS A-GPS Utility but was still unable to activate GPS: message: unable to contact camera.  SD card formatted for MS DOS (FAT 32). I called Olympus and described the shutter problem noted above. I was advised to send it back for repair. I mailed it 3/31.

Rare good product
As a jaded modern consumer, I assume most services and products I buy won't work as advertised. This Tough is a pleasant surprise. From sharks to family gatherings, this does it all and well. And, tough. Over the past couple of years, I've fallen down river banks with it, dropped it on rocks and used it in salt water for a month at a time, always expecting it to fall apart or just stop working. This could be the last camera I ever buy. OK, don't get a big head, Olympus. I'm sure some of your other products suck. This just isn't one of them.
