    Hunk of junk

    The camera functions as advertised by the seller so the seller was not at fault. The issue is with the quality Olympus put into this thing. The picture quality is average at best, the low light capabilities are poor, the flash in macro is too overpowering and the flash adjustments ineffective at best. The battery life is just plain awful. The controls and menus are definitely not user friendly. Zoom is very weak as it relies on digital with only a 3x optical zoom.

    Honestly the only things I liked about this thing is it is shock proof and somewhat freeze proof though the cold makes the already poor battery life even worse. Given the other quality issues I will not trust the waterproof feature enough to risk trying it.

    I would not recommend the camera to anyone. Buy the Pentax Optio W series or the Canon waterproof ones. Worth the extra money as they are by far superior in picture quality and user friendliness of functions.

    Inexpensive, tough, lots of features- GREAT BUY

    Review For: Olympus Stylus Tough 3000 / µ (mju) Tough 3000 12.0 MP Digital Camera - Green

    I bought this camera 3 weeks ago. So far, I'm more than satisfied! It takes great underwater pictures and videos! Very clear, very colorful. Zoom and auto-focus work well together - pictures are clear even when zoomed all the way in. The flash is a little bright, so it washes the picture out if the subject is too close. Features are very easy to use and there are tons of them. My favorite is the feature that allows for pictures to be taken in very quick succession. You hold down the capture button and it takes a series of pictures (for as long as you hold down the button). The dedicated video button allows for quick switch from picture to video - saves you a precious few seconds so you don't miss the moment. The battery life is not great, but an extra battery is not expensive. The camera also comes with a good program for the computer. The olympus website allows you to redownload the program in case anything happens to it, all you need is the serial number on the camera.

    All in all, great buy! Cheap, fun, sturdy. Great camera for the athletic AND the clumsy.

    this product lives up to its name

    Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

    I bought this model because I'm outdoors often and have killed several cheap sony camera's. I owned this model previously but lost it, I do alot of camping, hiking, hunting and fishing and needed adurable camera. It suits the purpose, i tested the waterproof feature as manufacturer desribed and is completely waterproof,hopefully wont have to test the shockproof part,lol.
    Dislikes is shutter speed is very slow, picture quality isnt what i would call the best but not of poor quality either, i would say average.

    Overall I bought this camera because I owned one previously it never failed, and i needed durability and dependability and am satisfied with my choice, as far as I know their isnt another manufacturer that promises the durability of this product,would and have suggested it to people I hunt and adventure with. The price fantastic! Features are very user friendly

    For the price it's a good buy.

    Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

    Good compact camera that is waterproof. I bought it to replace another one that I had. Like that it shoots video and takes fairly good pictures. The two things that I don't like are that 1) there is lag time between when you hit the button and the actual photo is taken; and 2) the battery tends to be drained when you shoot video (so make sure you are fully charged before you go to use it). For the price it's a good buy.

    excellent choice glad i got it

    Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

    My daughter got me into this camera she had a lower model.

    When you look at the pic it doesn't seem clear when the pic is printed it's beautiful excellent colors and the clarity is 100% I really like this camera and have used under water. That's the fun part people scream the camera you just put it in the water not knowing that it was meant for that. Altogether this is my choice camera. No comparison to any other camera.
