Hi all I have owned 2 Olympus TG-3 cameras (purchased specifically for snorkelling in the South Pacific Islands) and both have ruined our holiday by "leaking" with moisture warning showing on the camera and becoming fogged up after being in the water for anywhere between 5 and 25 minutes. Water was never majorly different to the temp of the air (about 26 degrees C) so cannot believe that the camera fogged up as a result of the temperature difference and there would be droplets of water inside...

I bought an Olympus E-M5 II for a recent trip to Guatemala and vacation in Maine. I have several questions/problems to relate: 1. While in Guatemala I experienced the camera freezing on me several times. An image would stay locked on the preview screen and none of the buttons on the camera would work. I found I could take the battery out and put it back in to overcome this problem. I also tried turning the camera on and off, taking out the memory card, and replacing the memory card. I asked...

I am looking for a good camera for macro under £250. Someone suggested getting the Olympus TG3 and a LG-1 LED Light Guide, but it is still over my budget. Any other cheaper alternative? Thanks.

I see on my TG-3 and E-PL5, the # is built into the main tag on the bottom. On the E-M1, there's an indentation near the tripod mount — but it's empty.  When I do the check for shutter actuations (32K), on page 3, I see "SC: BHP236957" Is this my Serial #? Looks like a typical Olympus pattern: 3 letters, then 6 digits. Anybody else have their SN sticker fall off? Happened on my E-5 as well... --Barry

It's easy enough to select, but every time I turn the camera off it resets to single frame. I don't want to keep it on while I'm paddleboarding due to the battery drain but I miss shots either because I'm fumbling with the multi shot selector or because the one shot I get off misses the moment (like a whale surfacing nearby).  Any ideas?

I am thinking of purchasing aPanasonic Lumix Dmc-ts6 and wanted to check if anyone know how much zoom noise was heard when shooting a video?  I had purchased the Olympus TG3 but the zoom noise was extremely loud.  Thanks in advance.

I have an Olympus TG3 Tough automatic camera. I notice that when the camera is not used for a week or two, the battery drains. This occurs even when the camera is powered off. Is this a common problem with this camera, or do I have a dud?

I have the TG3 and love it but when I try to video stuff its stops recording at random, sometimes it will record for 10sec and stop on its own or 20sec or 40sec sometimes if I'm lucky it will record for 2 min before randomly deciding to stop, it gets quite frustrating when you miss good video moments cause the camera stops recording video when ever it wants to, dose anyone have the same problem? or know y it does this and if its fixable? Thanks

It's still early summer but I've already booked a trip to go to Whistler this coming winter and am thinking about what to bring. I have always wanted to bring a camera there to capture the beautiful mountains and scenery up there but have been fearing about the safety of my camera and lenses. Therefore, wanted some suggestions as to what type of camera, bags, straps, etc are recommended in these situations. Camera: -OM-D E-M1 I have my trusty OM-D E-M1 + 12-40 which I have been through rain...

I have the opportunity to buy one of these cameras right now. TG-3 is still too pricey. The TX30 is a lot younger and has 18mp, however I read that with such a small sensor there's little advantage. I also find the 2.0/f of the Olympus quite appealing. Primary use will be landscapes/beaches/tourism seeing as I hate taking my DSLR on trips.
