Strong build quality and metal chassis. I've taken mine snorkelling, fishing and into snow and it's never missed a beat. Very easy to turn on with the sliding front cover. Battery life is good, but goes from an indicated charge level to nothing without warning. If you can live with the poor optics, it does what it's meant to quite well. Problems: Start-up is slow - far too slow, but the biggest problem with this camera is the appalling barrel distortion. Granted, it's a small lens, but I've ...

This camera is well made and feels good quality. The lens barrier is too easy to open and activate the camera in your pocket. This could be the main cause of poor battery perfomance. Suffered from "Battery Empty" too quickly in my opinion (141 shoots from full charge). Focus takes a time and the time between shot and storage is quite painful. Image quality is poor. Even at 10mp the images are "Average" at best. There is an excellent range of scenes to choose from and there are some good features.

Purchased as a companion to my E500 based on experience of using a Stylus 790 from work. Good solid feel and construction - yet small form factor that makes it convenient to carry nearly anywhere anytime. 30 minutes reviewing the manual and exploring revealed more features than I'll ever use - and simple menu and control system to access the features. Needed something for wet conditions and this works well. Problems: none

Just bought this camera and it's awful! Image quality very poor. Takes forever before you can take your next photo. The screen is by far the worst quality I have ever seen. Bought it simply for it's underwater / rugged features, but now, I shall return it. Save your money folks, this is simply a 'gimmick' camera!
