Olympus waterproof not really

Strengths: Price is okay, shockproof, 10MP

Weakness: not really waterproof

I bought this camera primarily because of its shockproof and waterproof capabilities. I've only had it for 3 months but now its broken. I go to the beach at least once a month and yesterday on my most recent trip it stopped working because it got wet in the sea. I didn't even submerge it, I had it on my kayak the whole time. I'm not the only one who had this experience. My friend bought the same...

Strengths: Can go underwater! Tough! Scene modes are great. Wide angle.

Weakness: Heavy (could be a problem if it sinks!), Manual is terrible, Olympus proprietary standards (USB ports/xD), wrist strap non adjustable. Small battery.

After initially reading reviews on the web, I wasn't expecting much from this camera. I was pleasantly surprised! My last 5 point and shoot camera's have almost all been Canon Powershot's. This camera trumps all other point and shoot camera simply by being waterproof. The photo's & memories you will capture are priceless! The pictures in daylight & brightly lit sources come out beautiful (better...

10.1mp water proved camera

Strengths: Can go where other cameras can't and takes shots that you would normally miss out on

Weakness: Image quailty yet to be perfected, quirky about memory cards.

Picture quality is about a 7 out of 10, but a 7 is better than no picture at all. If you find yourself in extraordinary environments and want to photo them without dragging a bunch of weatherproof gear around- this camera is THE best option on the market right now. I am thrilled to be able to pull out this pocket sized camera ANYWHERE and quickly get a few shots off in harsh environments. If the...

Olympus Stylus 1030 SW

Strengths: Utility, Shock proof, water proof, compact

Weakness: size, shutter lag

This camera is not bad consider this is a 4th generation of sporty design device to withstand shock, water and temp. Notice a slight faster shutter speed than previous model, due the fact it has a lot of dampening in the mechanical to reduce shock damage that may cause the slow in between shot, yet quite tolerable. Built sturdy like a tank. I took it to white water rafting in Kern River, survived...

DCRP Review: Olympus Stylus 1030SW

How one rates the Olympus Stylus 1030SW depends on how you view it. If you view it as an ultra-compact camera, it's average, at best. However, your typical ultra-compact can't take nearly the beating that the 1030SW can. It can be dropped, dunked in water, stepped on, and frozen, without missing a beat. If you need a camera that can handle those sort of things, then you'll have to...
