Olympus Stylus 1030 SW review
May 6, 2010

FAILED in salt water. I had two 1030SW for sea kayaking and both failed after a couple of months. One just leaked a bit and was repaired under warranty and consequently flooded beyond repair (replaced under warranty with Though 8000), the othe rone leaked and was repaired and now corroding badly. The original 720SW was way better it lasted me for about 3 years, the laekd a bit but still usable on land.
Image quality of at wide angle, poor at zoom in.
I DO NOT RECOMMEND the 1030SW.
More details on a long term test of my Olypus cameras at: http://gnarlydognews.blogspot.com/2009/11/compact-waterproof-cameras-long-term.html

Problems:

Leaked and corroded. FAILED
