Excellent camera for aquatic enthusiasts!
I've owned this camera for about five months, and I've really enjoyed using it. I'm a fisheries biologist, and I always make sure I have it with me when I go out in the field. It takes great underwater photographs of all the aquatic life I encounter. Plus, it's nice that I don't have to worry about dunking it while taking pictures out of the water. I've ruined a phone and another camera that way! It's quite small, so it doesn't take up much space in my bag. I can wear it around my wrist when I'm snorkeling, or stow it away in the pocket of my waders if I'm above the water that day. It takes good macro shots as well. Some critters are quite photogenic and they'll l allow you get really close. I've been able to get some beautiful shots of fish, crayfish, and mussels using the macro settings. I've gotten sand in some of the cracks and crevices, and it's always worked its way out. It never got inside the camera. However, sometimes it doesn't always focus where I want it to. It's a good adventure camera for when you don't want to haul around a DSLR and all the gear that goes with it. Great for scuba diving in shallower waters, snorkeling, kayaking, fishing, and backpacking!

I would not recommend this camera.
T as in Terrible. I do not like this camera. The battery is always dead. Very short life. Yes, turn GPS off. The GPS takes forever to connect and shut off. Still battery has short life. Image quality is mediocre. Focus is mediocre. The only benefit to this camera is being able to drag it trough the mud and maybe get a couple usable images. Otherwise useless

Cool, tough, and excellent!
The TG-5 is such a cool camera! It’ll go anywhere in any weather and it’s underwater capabilities are excellent. I’m impressed by the sharpness, zoom range, and the quality of images. I thought so much of this camera that I purchased a second one after my original was waterlogged due to user error (always check to make sure the doors are closed and double locked).

Great camera...needs a software update for US market
Love Tough cameras...but software needs an update for US market. The ruggedness of the camera and image quality are great. Wish the activity tracker actually provided temperature in Fahrenheit. Thinking this is a firmware update Olympus could provide for US market especially considering price point of this camera
