On article Initial sample images from the new Olympus TG-5 (3 comments in total)

Truly inexpensive water proof, dust proof, foggy lens proof, stuck lense proof camera. With underwater capabilty as a bonus. Plus you don't need to baby sit this camera,wash it and rinse after dive, throw it in your back pack and ready to go again on the next dive or just shooting pictures of family and friends.

If not Leica, they just forget about and give no effort to recover it.

In reply to:

(unknown member): A little late to be reviewing this camera I would have thought? A replacement can't be that far off. If the reviewer was really familiar with this camera, they would point out that the UK price of suitable chipped Canon batteries has been excessively high and has only dropped a little recently due to customer protests. The lens lacks enough range and is not very fast. Yes, you can buy the over-priced Canon G7X, which is a better camera, but it has serious issues with dust entering the lens assembly. Another option is the pleasing Sony RX100 with several mechanical failure possibilities or a Panasonic, which may also have lens sealing issues. And should you have faults, the after sales service from all three companies could be a lot better. My advice would be to buy a budget Nikon or Canon SLR, unless the size is absolutely critical. The performance is far better and there's less to go wrong.

So true on stuck lenses that won't retract such as my Canon 100.

On article Have your say: Best compact camera of 2017 (142 comments in total)

Ruggedness and portability in a camera is my topmost requirevents. The Olympus tg5 is the only camera can handle those requirements without hiccups. My Nikonos diving camera is to big to lug around but it can go deeper than 70ft. of saltwater in the Pacific Ocean. My Canon s100 camera lens still stucked and won't retract. So my best choice for go anywhere and no baby sitting camera now is the Olympus tg5, a camera can go anywhere where other will miserably fail.

Scary, your mind is awake but you won't be able move your body. A solution that works for me is to move my toe and it works everytime.

There's no dramatic difference of those picture to my canon s100 camera's picture. Only the price and the people promoting it paid by sony corp.

mauijohn: My canon s100 zoom lens stuck to extended position and won't go back anymore. It's now RIP.
But my iPhone 5s took more pictures than my canon 5s and still kicking like new attacked to my backpack strap and with a remote I could take many pictures remotely and discreetly while walking and biking.

Attached instead of attacked

In reply to:

qaz111111: The photos this camera produces are excellent. I use it as a PS but underwater the viewfinder is completely useless, as in you cannot see it at all. You aim in the direction of what you want and hope you get something later. I am never disappointed with the picture quality but underwater it is a different animal to work with. To understand the viewfinder problem think of trying to look at the nav screen in your car with polarized sunglasses; you can't see it and the camera had the same problem underwater.

I'm sorry to disappoint you more, for this camera has no viewfinder.

Accidents happens more to photographers than anyone. Case point:
I was assign to take pictures to our group of divers somewhere in Pacific south of Guam Island and we've just been about less than 30 minutes underwater at 60 ft. and i was run out of air and my buddies are too far for help. I manage to swimp up at the surface without decompressing. Fortunately i'm fine. It's because there's not much compressed air inside my lungs to explode or to expand dangerously as i ascend to the surface at the speed not more than the speed of the bubbles that comming out from my mouth constantly.
I move a lot taking pictures on the shipwreck on different angles that time and thats probably the reason why i ran out of air faster than my buddies.
