Consumer review (newegg.com)

Junk; for lack of better words

 

Too cheap, but useless. I recommend you spend a little more money with another one

I used it twice ; On Memorial day the buttons would become useless. Then would go back to work later on ; In July, camera took water in with only 3 feet of water

Cute

Ok

 

Still a decent deal for a young teenager... just need to figure out a solution for the exposed lens??? The one other draw back of Olympus cameras is the somewhat non-standard memory card.

Ok price for a non-telescoping lens (telescoping lens cameras always eventually get stuck and break!), waterproof cam

This camera is pretty "cheap", you can feel it in the buttons and case. Plus, no cover for the lens will eventually be a major (scratch/replacement) problem

Comes open unexpectedly

 

Gave this to my dad for Christmas. He took it snorkeling and it opened underwater without him touching it. Too bad Olympus doesn't cover liquid damage.

Nice form factor, low price point, no bulky extending parts

Being cheap can get you burned...

 

I have a $2000 Canon DSLR camera set up as well, so I'm not exactly a photography novice (although I'm not an expert either). I'm always impressed how other people's $250 point and shoot camera takes just as good of pictures as my Canon. The benefits...

Waterproof, price

I'm a pretty cheap person, always looking for a deal. I really don't like paying for "hype" and what I might perceive to be non value-added features or qualities. Sometimes I get burned. This is one of those times. I bought this camera for what I...

Couldn't be happier

 

We bought this knowing we had a beach trip on the Caribbean coast of Mexico coming up - and thought it would be fun to have something we could take snorkeling, sailing, swimming, and to the pool to catch a few action shots. This little camera really...

Inexpensive on the Shell-Shocker deal in early December. Apparently waterproof (we sure got it wet, with no ill effects). Takes fine shapshots and shoots great video with sound. Ours arrived with the Olympus Xd to Mini SD adapter, and a 4GB SDHC card -...

Limited zoom, but given the camera's water-resistant build (and sub sixty-buck price), it's hard to knock it for that

Consumer review (newegg.com)

It is waterproof but not much else

 

It is waterproof, so I used it to take pictures while we were sailing. It worked well for this purpose

The picture quality is extremely poor even in bright sunlight. The pictures are grainy and grayish, with very poor color reproduction. The recycling time is very long, takes several seconds between pictures. Battery life is very limited, one charge was...

Olympus X-560W

 

Great Price for waterproof camera, 4 GB Card and adapter included, picturers so far under different lighting coming out ; crisp and color true

non standard battery, probably costly to replace and cannot use standard SD cards ; if you do not want to remove the uSD card from the adapter you need to transfer pictures by cable

Consumer review (newegg.com)

not so good

 

Low cost, waterproof

Focus is terrible in anything but bright sunlight. Indoors I can't turn the flash off without getting blurry photos

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Not a good camera

 

Buy something else. I have used many digital cameras with great results, but this one not so much. I will be replacing it very soon with a Canon.

It is very sturdy

Uses very XD data card, inconvenient compared to much more common SD card ; Indoor picture quality low, pictures very grainy no matter the lighting. Slow focus gives you frequent blurry results

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Not really water proof

 

I would recommend a little hier-end camera over Olympus x560wp. Olympus and Fuji makes camera that are just slightly more expensive. I had Kodak playsport camcorder, that took nice pics too along with video. I was just outside 30 days warranty from...

This was a cheap 10MP waterproof camera (although for $20 or so more you can buy better one) ; It takes decent pictures ; While it worked, took underwater pictures

I purchase this camera for my trip to Bahamas. Day 1 at the beach, we were able to take some pictures, however, you can't really see the LCD screen so it was just pointing at the subject and shooting, you can imagine many useless pictures ; Day 2,...
