Comments about Olympus Stylus 850 SW Shock-Proof, Water Proof Digital Camera (Black):

I love this camera! I bought it to use when snorkeling on vacation. It takes beautiful pictures, better than any underwater disposable camera I've used. The underwater pictures are best if it is sunny and the water is clear, otherwise the pictures can look cloudy. The floating strap is a must if you do any snorkeling, it works. This camera is also great for everyday pictures too. Well worth the money.

Comments about Olympus Stylus 850 SW Shock-Proof, Water Proof Digital Camera (Black):

An SLR isn't always practical. I haven't found one that will fit snugly in a back pocket and go for a swim. This camera can handle an active lifestyle. I've had the 720 SW model for two years and the camera has survived the adventures I've put it through. It has traveled to places the average camera could never go and has got the scars to prove it. It shoots just like an Olympus should. Active? This camera is yours.
