LIFEPROOF

WATERPROOF TO 16FT.

The TG-610 crushes the notion that cameras are easily damaged by water and humidity. The Olympus-original complete sealing system and double lock construction borrowed from Olympus' long history of manufacturing underwater housings ensures that the TG-610 is completely waterproof down to a new depth of 16ft. Even on land, the TG-610 ensures that you'll never miss an awesome shot just because of heavy rain or snow.

SHOCKPROOF TO 5FT.

The shockproof structure of the TG-610 ensures that your investment is protected. Carefully sandwiched between two protective frames, the lens and camera unit remain unfazed by bumps, drops, falls and other impacts. Even after repeated drops, critical camera components and functions like the lens, shutter, aperture and auto-focus remain safe. Drop, pick up, and keep on shooting.

FREEZEPROOF TO 14°F

Keep shooting outdoors even in the winter. The TG-610 is designed to keep operating at below freezing temperatures, safe from the two most common problems when shooting in cold weather: lens condensation and auto zoom malfunction. Hit the slopes, fire up your snowmobile, or break out the skates, because with the TG-610 by your side, you'll never miss those awesome wipe out moments.

DUSTPROOF

Life gets dirty. Between dusty fields and muddy trails, sometimes your camera doesn't stay as pristine as you'd like it to. But even in less-than-spotless environments, the fine protective sealing of the TG-610 helps keep out dirt and debris allowing you to capture shot after shot even in the harshest environments.

HD Video

A simple one-touch button allows you to record videos with amazing clarity in high-definition, right from your camera. HDMI output and control makes playing back videos on your HDTV a breeze.

MAGIC FILTER
STILL & MOVIE

Add style and artistic flair to stills and movies with Olympus' Magic Art Filters. Joining Pop Art, Pin Hole, Drawing, Fish Eye, and Soft Focus are the new Punk, which creates a two-tone image with a classic punk rock feel, Watercolor, which transforms images into frame-worthy paintings, and Sparkle, which adds a twinkle to your photos. (Effects vary by model)

5X WIDE-ANGLE OPTICAL ZOOM

You'll never leave anyone out. With its 5x optical zoom you can get dramatically close to the action, or zoom out wide and capture everyone and everything in sight.

DUAL IMAGE STABILIZATION

Dual Image Stabilization combines Sensor-Shift Image Stabilization with high ISO sensitivity and fast shutter speeds so you can capture crisp, clear images even if the subject is moving.

TAP CONTROL

Operate picture playback, shadow adjustment, flash mode and more just by tapping the top, back and sides of the camera. Tap Control is ideal for underwater use or when wearing gloves.

Worst camera I've ever owned.

We bought this camera on our spring vacation last year to replace our other Olympus Tough Series camera that broke. The old one had a good run of almost 3 years and took amazing pictures both above and below water. We bought the TG-610 because it was the only Olympus waterproof we could find anywhere near our destination. From the moment we got it we weren't happy with the pictures it took. In the last year we've barely gotten any pictures worth keeping, and underwater it all just looks cloudy. Above the water things look hazy and washed out. I have had Cannon, Nikon and Olympus point and shoot and this camera hands down does the worst job of all of them. Normally I'd try to sell my old camera on craigslist before buying a new one, but I can't even in good conscience sell this to someone. Very displeased Olympus.

Not waterproof X2 experiences

We bought our first Tough camera for a holiday in Mexico, the second day of our trip, we were taking some pictures on the beach and ventured out into the (very calm) waves to take some more... once we were in the water, the camera shut off... not cool! After returning to the beach we realized that the screen had filled up with water. Guess who didn't get to take any pictures the rest of the vacation ?!? not impressed.
We were able to return the camera and it was covered under warranty after about a 3 month wait (they had to make sure that we weren't lying about how we used it).
The second camera - the exact same thing happened on our next vacation... it was fine until we tried to take our WATERPROOF camera into the shallow water.
This time they wouldn't replace it... as per the Future Shop Rep and customer service at Olympus.
I will never, ever purchase an Olympus camera again. Worst camera's ever. Save your money folks.

Very good camera!

I have had this camera for over a year and I am in love with it! It takes AMAZING pictures for it's price! And it does everything it says it will! I have taken this camera swimming with me, left it in the snow over night (wops) dropped it a TON of times... and my little brother has thrown it across the room and it still works great! I'm very impressed with this camera!

Don't buy it

I purchased this camera for my destination wedding and honeymoon. It took good pictures until it died on my honeymoon! I made sure the battery compartment was closed every time we brought it into water so it looks like this camera is not waterproof afterall. There was a little water in the battery compartment and now the camera is dead. No more pictures on my honeymoon... Thanks, Olympus. Never again will I buy anything from you and I will make sure everyone I know knows your cameras are of poor quality.

Terrible

This is my second camera. Both died within months. I am careful with it and it both stopped working.

Good Features

I really like that this camera is waterproof/freezeproof/crushproof, etc., what I don't like about it is the time it takes to "wake-up" from being on but the screen being black, the time it takes between taking pictures, the time it takes for the image stabilization to work to take a picture (sometimes I have to half click the button to take a picture a couple of times before it focuses in on what I want it to), the low light/night scene image quality is quite bad and the fact that its rugged yet not scratch proof. Overall it is still a very good camera, but I would like it to be better in these aspects. The new Tough 1 camera seems to address all of these issues except the scratch resistant one, I don't think that will ever be resolved though.

good not great

It take excellent macro images but mediocre landscapes. They need a more secure locking mechanism for the h2o proof door. I've "killed" several cameras in the desert canyons of Utah but this one has, thus far, outlived the others. Not recomended for quality photos but it will survive many trips.

Very good compact camera

I wanted the water proof design and find its pictures in the water to be excellent. My only gripe is the shorter than expected battery life and the charger must be plugged into the camera to recharge the battery. I prefer to remove the battery and charge it that way.

Shock and waterproof

Purchased this camera for my childcare business and we are putting it to the test. We needed good quality and durable.

The first test was my family's cruise adventure and snorkling. What a great job this little camera did.
