Olympus TG-810 Review

 

The Tough TG-810 lives up to its name, being built like a tank, and performs well for everyday shooting. But it's clunky navigation, somewhat slow shutter response, and middling image quality in low light don't make it good fit if you don't absolutely...

Tiny controls can be difficult to use ; Thick body feels cumbersome in a pocket ; Photos taken in low light can look noisy ; Easy to turn on camera by accident ; GPS drains battery quickly

A beautiful design with impressive features, but image quality is sub-par. We suspended our review as a result, and do not recommend the TG-810. Olympus Tough TG-810 Overview Posted: 01/05/2011 Reviewed: 11/15/2011

While the Olympus Touch TG-810 may be equipped with more bells and whistles than the average user needs, if you are planning an underwater excursion, an intense hike or the like, this 3D camera is a must. If you don't plan on banging your camera around...

This camera is waterproof to a depth of 33 feet – perfect for underwater diving

Because of all of the included features, the battery doesn’t last long

Adventurers rejoice, the TG-810 is your ticket to documenting outdoor memories.

The worst camera-ever!

 

As a photographer I appreciate a good camera. I replaced an earlier model Olympus with the new TG-810 because of the underwater housing available as an accessory. This camera is the worst camera I have ever owned. It has exceptionally slow response...

Don't count on it working underwater!

 

I have owned Olympus cameras for many years and have used them underwater (5 feet max) without issues. Then my husband and I take a one of a lifetime trip to Bora Bora and while using it snorkeling it leaked!!! I could see bubbles coming from the...
