The Olympus Series was the first camera wich was ready to deal with this conditions-

pro:
nearly undestructable
self-cleaning of the lens works even under the worst conditions
usable even with gloves

con:
picture quality at higher iso gets really bad
slow starting time (as in the review described)
GPS is really slow with getting an fix

THis is my third Olympus. I had one Olympus mju 1030 wich was , changed to an TG-610 and after this was stolen, I changed to this model.

Problems:

strap broke and camera crahed at full pace to the road -> camera still works and is waterproof
GPS is slow
