3 out of 5 eggs nice for underwater, not in the dark 11/11/2011

This review is from: OLYMPUS TG-310 Blue 14 MP 3.6X Optical Zoom Waterproof Shockproof 28mm Wide Angle Digital Camera

Pros:

Nice for underwater and other rough conditions as long as its bright out. Works great outside during the day. Video and photos look good underwater, just like any underwater camera the water needs to be clear. Video works well, stabilization is very apparent during video, helps to avoid shaky videos.

Cons:

Poor in low light. It will not focus if there isn't significant light, like a very bright room inside, or outside during the day. Other brands of cameras I own have a red "focus" light that turns on in low light to aid the camera to focus, this one does not.

Other Thoughts:

Overall great camera for pool and beach use. No worries about getting it wet or etc, so it can capture nice pool photos that you wouldn't want to take a non-waterproof camera with. One big fault is the focusing in the dark. Lack of the focus light really affects the cameras overall usability.

Image quality is decent, but not as good as my other comparable cameras. The images from this seem over sharpened, but look good for what it is.

Video is good, but it is a one button record so it take a couple seconds before it starts recording, and a couple seconds after you stop recording video before you can use the camera again. There is no "video mode" like on other cameras I've used, which usually start recording video rather instantly.

FYI I am a photographer and own a few Canon DSLR's, many lenses and a few Canon Point and shoots, which I can compare this camera to.
