Re: TG-1 is a sales failure

What dou you mean by waterproof cameras remaining waterproof "as long as they should"" ?

99% of leaks result from human carelessness - closing the camera while the seals are dirty (and it doesn't take much: a single grain of sand may ruin everything), or still wet, etc....

There is no miracle solution, only proper care will do.

Olympus recommends professional cleaning/changing of seals once a year.

To make a comparison, it takes me about 15 minutes to clean and close the Nauticam housing of my Lumix GH2 before using it, and approx the same time to rinse and clean it when I'm done with an UW shooting session (and I'm used to it) + new seals every year.

The Olympus is easier to take care off, but still requires a bit of your time for specific care.
