I bought this camera for a family trip to center parcs. It was fab, as we spent virtually the whole week in the pool we were able to bring back lots of photos. the quality of the pictures was good and i just love the fact that it is waterproof, i have...

Olympus Stylus 550WP 10MP Digital Camera


I just recently purchased this camera and I am utterly dissapointed with it. The issues with it started right out of the box with the shooting mode not saving, the power button not working properly(removing the battery and putting it back in solved...

Not what i expected


Make sure you get an adapter card for it.

Nice camera. Takes good pictures

The 8GB memory card that it comes with does not fit in the memory card slot on the camera and the adapter that is supposed to come with it is missing

Not So WaterProof


The camera says that it is waterproof up to like 10ft. I took this to Xel-Ha mexico (had already used it a few times to get used to it). I set it for the underwater mode, made sure all gaskets were sealed, and went in the water. I stayed on the surface...

Price, Color(black), MicroSD Adapter (to xd)Included, Compact Size. Makes a great paper weight now-a-days

Settings are difficult to get right for the lighting you are shooting in, Menu style is awkward if you are used to the dial style. Picture takes a long time to resolve after shooting. Photo quality is much less than what it should be for the megapixels...

Decent Camera


One thing to remember this is a cheap point shoot camera not a high end SLR. They are good for one thing using in auto mode and taking simple pictures! You will not be a professional photographer with any point and shoot so there really is no reason to...

The obvious pros are its cheap and its waterproof. My wife and the kids have had a blast with this camera. The quality is ok for a point and shoot the response is fair as well. Its small and nothing sticks out to get caught on things. Everything is...

The biggest con I would say would have to be battery life while having a rechargeable battery that comes with the camera, it has awful life. After a couple hours of use the battery is dead and that is without the flash. The image quality is less than I...

great lil camera


i chose blue because i didn't want to lose it floridian murky water .. the black would have made it blend in. the sd card converter is in the blue large envelope with the manual. Don't compare this to a canon or high end sony or dslr the photos are a...

ease of use for any person, light, durable tested in pool 10 mins after opened use works like a charm, cheap with newegg bundle with case extra battery and lens cleaner.. can't beat that

the video records audio but you can't hear it when u play it back.. going through the manual several times thinking it was defective its not THIS WILL NOT PLAY AUDIO BACK it RECORDS AUDIO and only plays it on PC or TV but not through the camera.. :) IT...

Great for my husband!


Great little camera for my husband who drops things pretty often. It took nice pictures on our Europe trip, where I think he photographed our families every move, yeah I created a monster! We didn't test the water feature though

In Rome the battery started flipping out. We couldn't turn the camera off. I had to take out the battery and then put it back in. Then it worked fine. Luckily I took the 2 year protection just in case. That's why I gave it only 4 stars

never got to use it!


i bought this for a rafting trip, it just stopped working 4 days before i am leaving. only owned for 2 months. very frustrating as now i have to buy another camera to take on my trip.

waterproof (allegedly)

worked for about a week then stopped working. will never buy this brand again. a waste of money, i will get rid of it after it gets fixed under it's warranty

Great water camera BUT...


I am currently RMA'ing this with newegg and I hope to get my replacement soon. I believe the leak was just a weakness in the screen on this one model. *crosses fingers*

This camera has a nice MP level and very nice feel for an underwater camera. I would recommend this to anyone for trips or just leisure around the home. This is a camera I could use out of water as much as in

One week into my trip in Belize with this brand new camera: I was snorkeling off the Cayes when I noticed a small water bubble in the right top corner of the lcd screen. I was taking care of this camera extremely well. I would clean it in bottled water...
