In my opinion, this is a piece of cr@p! It is very slow and image quality sucks big time. Images are very noisy, especially in low light. Full of bells & whistles, but the least liked camera in my line-up. Problems: None, apart from pathetic image quality.

WARNING FOR all OLYMPUS "Tough" Camera's Olympus only does warranty for 12 months following purchase of camera. Even if after that time issues arise which are related to manufacturer defect. "waterproof", "tough" and "shockproof" should be taken in context of use for 12 months. I received an estimate of $135 + $25 shipping (from manufacturer) to repair water leaking into the frame of a 18 month old $400 camera. It is noted on my repair form that this camera is not scratched, dented or shown ...

I’ve had this grunty little workhorse for over a year and have exploited it extensively around half the world under various conditions. I come from an SLR background, so I lowered my expectations for image quality and control. I really just wanted an all weather camera I could carry on me at all times, go swimming with, use in the moshpit or take photos/movies with off the back of a motorbike. Over the years I have used an array of cameras by different manufacturers, so I didn’t bother ...

Confermo: non comprare (DO NOT BUY). Pessima scelta: colori falsati, manca un mirino ottico, in controluce il monitor LCD è invisibile. Problems: La seconda volta che l'ho usata in acqua, è morta. L'assistenza parla di imperizia. Io so' che non comprero' piu' Olympus.

I loved the camera untill I lost in in the ocean while in Mexico. DO BUY the floating strap if you are planning any activities in any depth of water over 10 feet. Its an easy to use, quick responsive all around all weather camera. I'm in the army, infantry and the camera was tough enough to carry in my tact vest. I have replaced it with a 790 SW that I hope will live up although it does not have as many features as the camera it replaces.

Do not buy, I have had this camera for only 13 months and used it very little. It is in for repair and I am told it will cost $250.00. I had a search on the internet and found quite a few people with the same problem. Olympus deny that it has problems.

Bought the camera because I'm a passionate tramper, and need something that would happily survive pack-floating and river crossings. So far I didn't have an opportunity to test the water-proving of the case, but I dropped the camera several times, and had a heavy pack fall onto it w/o any damage. The image quality is lacking in many situations, the default settings tend to over-expose (something it shares with my other Olympus, the C-8080), and depth of field is sometimes not satisfactory. T ...

I bought this as a quick and easy - don't have to lug my SLR around camera. I am a firefighter / paramedic have the opportunity in my position to take cool pictures once in a while. The case is very strong and impact resistant, the ability to withstand bellow freezing and water make it very practical to use as a "turn out" camera. Meaning I can place this camera in my turn-out gear, perform my job, and when the opportunity comes - pull the thing out of my bunker coat pocket, snap a few ...

Not very confident with the 770SW claimed features... Like other buyers I bought this for water sport purposes. I bought this in Nov. 2007 and mainly for the 10M depth feature. I already knew from reading alot of articles that this camera did not take very good pictures just average and I have to agree. My Nikon Coolpix 4500 4MP camera takes better pictures and has better macro then the 770SW. But my main reason for buying this camera agian was for the waterproof feature and that is all. ...

Recommendation - do not buy this product. I brought the camera for its robustness an potential to use snorkelling. General the camera is average having reasonable picture quality daytime shots. The performance is comparable with a £100 camera not a £270 camera. The menu structure is difficult to navigate, best used as a point and shoot camera only. Recommendation - do not buy this product. Problems: 1st version. Flash photography outdoors resulted in white hexagons over the dark section ...
