AFAIK, that's the case with all tough cams. And there are reasons for it. These cameras would be tough to control manually...

I would be happy with a simple DR Optimization (as on Canon P&S models) or Smart Range (as on Samsung cameras). Olympus WP images from my friends often have objectionably washed-out highlights. The problem seems worse than images from Nikon or Panasonic.

From my experience so far, the TG-1 is actually pretty good about picking a decent exposure.

Good to hear. Maybe EV -.3 would work for me. But I'll probably spend my camera $$s on a Nokia 808 cellphone instead.
