Product Description

While other digital cameras may use touch screens to access settings, the new Stylus 1050 SW has a shockproof, waterproof and freezeproof body that is sensitive to touch all over. So getting to the most common menu settings in situations where pushing buttons takes time or is difficult is now as fast and easy as a tap on the top, back or sides of the camera. The rugged 10.1-megapixel Stylus 1050 SW is designed to take the hard knocks that everyday life particularly those with kids can throw its way, so you know that the memories it captures will be protected. It can handle five-foot drops to the hard ground, operate in freezing snowstorms, and swim with the fishes lethal conditions for most other digital cameras. Additionally, the Stylus 1050 SW weathers the elements in style with four trendy colors (blue, champagne, silver and black) and a new streamlined body. The sleek, lens-protecting faceplate slides down, turning the camera on and revealing the lens in an instant to capture the moment.

Customer Reviews:

  • good buy
    I'am in Iraq, everything takes a beating....I've been there two cameras already be fro i got this one & buddy this one is tuff as nails...more info
  • Great features
    I was a little skeptical about the durability. I bought it, tried it out and it works great. My favorite features are: Underwater feature, Night Scene(time exposure)and panoramic. The durability is good so far. I accidentally smacked it on a jagged lava rock, just got a minor scratch. Only flaw is the zoom. It is only 3X zoom. It's optical zoom but it is inside the camera...understandable, but it makes it look like a digital zoom.
    Not so much of a flaw, but an inconvenience is that you have to rinse the camera in fresh water after each use in a pool or ocean. Doesn't bother me too much, I would rather rinse it than have it get corroded from salt water or chlorine.
    Overall, it is a must buy. I got it for $217. Let me tell you I got my money's worth....more info
  • Great
    The camera is great. Can get wet and the megapixels are awesome. Takes great pictures especially on the beach and in the sunlight. ...more info
  • Just too much Delay
    Listen to the other reviewers. I own other cameras and use to be a professional photographer. This camera has a tremendous amount of delay - shutter lag. So much so that it is nearly impossible to take any moving object. OK - I was ahrd on it - I bought it to bring with me in the outdoors hiking, fishing so if it took a dunking it would still work. I use to carry my Cannon but it was too big. Plus the XD Cards are expensive when compared to SD cards. The one/off slide can easily be turned on when you are not expecting it and drain your battery. That is a bit of a pain. I think for everyday, I would not buy this again. If you are mostly interested in taking still objects will work for you....more info
  • Good camera but has some flaws
    This is a good camera for outdoor photography but it does have some design flaws. I bought this camera for my trip to the Grand Canyon and also took along my Canon Rebel xti for the dry hikes when I wasn't running rapids. The flaws I ran into:
    - battery life is not the best, a battery lasted at most three days. My Canon Rebel (which I took more pictures using) lasted all ten days
    - battery indicator was not accurate, one moment I had a full charge the next moment I was nearly empty
    - the LCD is impossible to see under direct sunlight when you are outside
    - cannot recharge the camera via USB which means you can't use a solar charger.
    - camera does not come with any memory cards
    - slow delay when taking a picture
    - when the lens cover flips down the camera turns on. I believe this explains the bad battery life. In my pocket or backpack normal activities (like walking) bounced the camera around enough where the lens cover flipped down thereby turning the camera on.
    - reviewing photos on the LCD appeared jagged (pictures were fine but hard to tell on the camera's LCD)
    On the plus side:
    - (IMPORTANT FEATURE) Since the camera is self-contained (water proof) sand didn't get into the inner workings of the camera. This is very important if you are taking lots of shots on a long outdoor trip. I was really scared that the sand was going to ruin my Canon Rebel. I have seen cameras ruined by dirt in the environment.
    - Panoramic pictures came out good - I really like this feature
    - Camera is waterproof!
    - Camera has a great form factor, I kept mine in my swimming trunks - I accidently went swimming with the camera on multiple times.

    All in all I would recommend this camera for a outdoor excursions. Just make sure you buy extra batteries. I haven't found a camera that is better than this one. ...more info

  • Olympus Stylus 1050SW
    Great point and shoot camera, very sturdy build quality. 3x zoom is a little limited, but suitable for the application of this camera. ...more info
  • great and not so great
    Whats Great: durability, picture quality is great so far too...I have 3 small boys, so I needed to buy something that could handle them. I have always purchased olymupus cameras becuase of the picutre qauality, but my boys seem to always manage to throw my cameras out a window, or into water...this was my only choice. There are no other's like it on the market in this price range.

    What's not so great: shutter delay..i hate it. I absolutely hate th delay, i'm trying to get used to it. I almost have to guess what's gonna happen...not easy with a 1,3 and 5 year old! Thre are other settings you can use to try and make it better, but i just have to get used to it, again, durability is the most important thing to me ..i have gone through-i think-3 cameras alredy...I cant keep buying them, too expensive. the other not so great feature is the strange lcd screen. when you make the slighest movement it gets blurry..i really dont use it, when i'm taking a picutre, i just look at the subject..i iwll peek to make sure what i'm taking is in frame but that's about it. I'm not a huge fan of the slider that opens and closes the lens..it does open easy, sometimes when it's in my bag, it opens on me. the last thing i'm not too crazy aobut is that it takes a while to turn on...if sometihg is happening that i want to shoot really fast, between the delay of it turing onn nd the dely on the shutter, i usually miss it. I also think all cameras should come with a case-only some do, this one doesnt..that annoys me...the card, and extra battery costs enough..

    All in all, it's ok. If durability wasnt the most important thing, i would hve returned it and gotten something different.

    Hope that helps!...more info
  • Done with olypmus.
    I bought this camera about 45 days ago. The weekend after i bought it, I went on vacation and took over 100 pictures. Everything seemed to be OK. When i turned it on about 2 weeks ago, it no longer worked. I couldn't see anything on the screen and when i took pictures it was black; no the slide was not blocking the lens. I got this camera for it toughness and it didnt last 45 days....more info
  • Love This Camera!
    Had been looking for a great little underwater/weatherproof camera after using a disposable camera snorkeling in Mexico and Bermuda. After 2 trips with poor quality pictures to show for it, I said no more and wanted a good underwater digital camera.

    Did my research and wanted this camera for my Birthday, but my husband and his best friend who is a professional photographer went out camera shopping. They ended up buying me the Canon Powershot G10, not the 1050SW. Believe me, the G10 is a great camera and I am glad we have it, but does not fit into your pocket and requires underwater housing to take snorkeling. Not what I wanted. Appreciated the thought though.

    So for Mother' Day I finally got the Olympus 1050SW because I wanted a point and shoot to take snorkeling, jumping off the cliffs in Negril, etc. and to take skiing with me. Hubby will still use G10 w/housing for amazing snorkeling and sunset pics, but I love the idea of how durable and slim this camera is.

    Really impressed with the out of water pictures it takes. The settings are so easy to use. A lot of great features.

    Used it in the pool the other day and it took a gorgeous picture. However, it is mid-May on the East Coast and the water was cold to say the least, which drained the battery after 30 minutes in the cold water. Was nervous about putting it underwater at first, but it performed beautifully. The pictures were great and I just loved being able to dive into the pool with it. Read the instructions before using in the water. Pretty simple, make sure the battery/card compartment is securely shut, put lens barrier down and keep it down until you are out of the water and have rinsed it in fresh water. Also, put your "sceene selection" to "underwater" and go. Couldn't be simpler.

    We leave in 3 weeks for Jamaica and will update the review w/pics.

    So far I could not be happier with this camera. And the price off Amazon couldn't be beat anywhere. The only thing I would add is purchasing the underwater strap. Definitely by the case made for this as it fits perfectly. ...more info
  • Great camera for outdoors and a beginner
    I bought this camera as my first digital to use while fly-fishing and skiing - I love it - all the different settings and functions helps me get good shots regardless of the light or conditions I am in - and I don't have to worry about getting it wet or dropping it - I wasn't sure if I would like the slide on and off lens cover but I do - it is an easy way to turn the camera on and off and protects the lens face - I like the pocket size and weight - I like the ability to plug it into a TV monitor to see a big version of my pictures and/or play them back as a slide show - I bought 3 extra batteries very cheap here on Amazon and never worry about running out of power - all in all, I don't see how any amateur, outdoor photographer could go wrong with this amazing little camera....more info
  • waterproof function
    I love this camera, has good resolution, low weight, waterproof function is perfect. but it is not the best option for videos....more info
