Well what can I say? This is an absolutely excellent bit of kit that you couldn't break if you tried! I work as a kayak coach and this little beauty has seen me through countless trips down the river, regularly submerged and bashed around and always coming out on top.
The camera is encased in solid metal and sits very well in your hand, it is able to withstand a crushing force of 100kg and a drop of 1.5m. It is also waterproof to 10m and freezeproof to temperatures of -10 degrees celsius so whether you are skiing or diving you don't need to worry!
The camera is stylish and comes in a range of colours; there is no viewfinder however and you are forced to use the (good sized) screen on the back to take your picture, this can occasionally pose a problem in bright sunlight but it is rarely an issue.
The picture quality is good, although at 7.1 megapixels not outstanding, and the video is also good despite the slightly tinny sound...
Take care to always wash the camera after excursions in salt water and the salt and sand can cause the lens cover to become blocked, leaving the lens unprotected.
The menu and Olympus computer software is very easy to use and navigate and pictures are transferred very quickly to the computer, there are also a wide range of shooting modes availably on the camera including one specifically for fireworks!
In short this camera is able to do things that others can only accomplish with very bulky extra cases, it looks good and fits easily in your pocket so is suitable for virtually every occasion.
Summary: A high quality and hard wearing camera suitable for any occasion.
