Olympus Tough TG-310


The 14-megapixel Olympus Tough TG-310 digital camera is built to withstand some pretty harsh environments. You can submerge it in up to 10 feet of water, drop it from a height of five feet, and use it in temperatures as low as 14°F. Its lens covers a...

Modest price for a rugged camera. Waterproof to 10 feet, shockproof to 5 feet, freezeproof to 14°F; Good low-light performance

Cannot zoom while recording video. No separate battery charger

The rugged Olympus Tough TG-310 doesn't offer the zoom range of more expensive models, but its image quality is on par with competing cameras, and it comes at an attractive $200 price.

Olympus TG-310 Digital Camera


Maxell’s Encore EN-5 offer a rich, full sound for an affordable price, beating out nearly all of the headphones in the test. However, our testers didn’t think they were very comfortable, nor did this pair do a good job staying put during use....

Overall happy


I was not the target audience for this purchase. My spouse who is slightly less tech savvy will be using it and this will suit her needs. She can get it wet, drop it, etc and it will continue to work. All factors considered, happy with purchase.

Durable, suitable for those that aren't the most careful, good price. Also love the built-in help prompts in the camera's software (press the ? button for little descriptions for what you are doing)

Did not come with accessories to begin using normally (internal memory only holds 5 shots or 22 seconds of video, no hdmi out cable)

Perfect workplace camera!


After our manufacturing department asked to borrow our high end SLR to take pictures on the factory floor I figured it was time to get them their own point and shoot. The factory floor is wet and there is always the chance of an employee to drop the...

Nice Little Camera


I do not like that the battery must be in the camera in order to recharge it. I believe there is an optional "out of camera" charger available however, the salesperson failed to mention this.
