Pleased and still learning the camera
I've had my TG-2 for about 2 months. It's given me some great pictures. Still pictures are the only application I've used so far. (Still learning). I purchased the extra zoom lens wich has been fantastic. Some bird pictures I've taken came out good. Still I wish there was another zoom with more power. One problem I had was I was out taking pictures of my grandkids one day and had the camera on all the time. At one point towards the end of the day it froze up and would not respond. I pulled the battery out and it came back to life. I thought I had lost the pictures I had taken because initially they did not show. Later on another outing I was looking thru what I had taken and they were saved. It turned out to be not a loss. I'm looking forward to using it in some snorkeling shots. Overall it's my first digital and am pleased with it.

TG-1iHS
This is the 4th Olympus tough type camera I've owned. I bought the original when I first saw one because I bike alot, spend alot of time at the beach and other extreme locations and always want a camera with me. I've had one pickpocketed in Buenos Aires. The last one was years old, only a 8 mpx and broke a few weeks ago in Costa Rica. I ordered my TG-1iHS and had it shipped to Nicaragua for my last 2 weeks of vacation. I also got the fish eye lense. I this the best camera for active people, especially those of us that don't want to carry a 50 lb. camera backpack with a giant camera body and extra lenses. And the fact that it's still waterproof with the additional lenses makes it a no-brainer to buy

Pretty darn good, but there's a learning curve.
I'd been puzzling over which DLSR to get so I could take macro shots. By accident I learned of the TG-2's "super macro" capability. Well, costly DSLRs with weight and expensive lenses, begone! I've been experimenting with this little camera for about a week. While looking around for teeny things to capture, I'm liking the nifty panoramic feature. The directions (strictly in the computer) and the software are not working as well as I'd like. Even technical help didn't address my question of why the directions say I must format the card in order to use it -- yet the camera IS using it -- and I can't find a way to format the card anyway. And the software only seems to download the photos from the camera. Afterwards they're nowhere to be found in my PC, so I have to go in and do a copy-and-paste. And I hope the software really will stitch my manually-taken panoramas together. Overall, though, I'm quite happy with the camera and am resigned to the learning curve. This is my first Olympus.

Great Pocket Camera
I have been through the bulky DSLR's and my Pen Camera is not a pocket camera. I was looking for a fast camera that would fit in my pocket and be resistant to water and shock. I hike, bike ride, kayak, paddle board and photograph underwater as a scuba diver. This camera really takes great photographs. It does not use its onboard flash in low light. It does focus and shoot fast. I can pull it out of my pocket and hit the on button and get a photograph in seconds. I have not taken it diving yet, and if I do it will have to be shallow dives less than 45 feet. The GPS locates my location and adds the info to the photo. I use iPhoto to download the photos. The movies are sharp and very good. While not as wide as a GoPro the quality is very similar to the GoPro. The still photos I would say are equal to or better than my Pen photos. I soaked the camera in a pool with no leaks as the first test, about 10" depth as it float with the floating strap. I will lowered it to the bottom of the pool next. If it passes that test, I expect it will I will take it diving to about 25 -40 feet in a couple of weeks and check out the underwater photo quality. If it does a good job I will probably get the underwater housing and sell my Underwater Pen System. I will know more in about 4 to 6 weeks. If Olympus allows me to update this review then I will. The cons: No lens cover and I am fearful of scratching the lens. I added a screen protector to prevent scratching the display. The battery is charged in the camera, I see this as a negative because I can not use the camera if I need to charge the battery. I will search for an external battery charger. But, the good thing is you do not need to have an external battery charger. For these 2 items I subtract 1/2 star. This camera fits my need for a pocket camera that takes great photos and with little shutter lag time and it can be dropped and it is waterproof.
