Is the Olympus 850sw digital camera waterproof?

I want to get a digital camera for my boyfriend and am unsure what to get exactly because he goes hiking and kayaking alot. So I want something that will hold up in all conditions. Please help. Thank you!

You probably know by now that the 850SW is waterproof, shockproof and also stands up in freezing conditions. I am just writing because I am very happy with mine and would highly recommend it for your active boyfriend. We have gotten many great pictures with it in the water and the kids have been pretty rough with it at times.

Olympus also has newer versions of this camera, the 1030SW and the 1050SW. I saw the 1050SW today at Costco for just 229.99.

How i can set date and time on picture of olympus...


The 850SW will not deface your pictures by scrawling numbers across them. However, the data is stored with every picture. Depending on the program and printer, you can print the date on the image, in the margins, or on the back. Please refer to the documentation for the program.

If you print directly from the camera, refer to the instructions in the "Printing" section of the camera manual (page 41 in my copy).

I have an olympus camera. It's a stylus 850SW. Apparently its supposed to be drop proof but it took a bad fall I guess and the side part that plugs into the computer is now having problems opening. Also,...


A "little over a year ago" means no warranty. Besides, the warranty wouldn't cover damage due to dropping the camera. If the camera still works, you can use a card reader to download your pictures and eliminate the need for "the side part that plugs into the computer."

After used in beach the camera turns on but no image shows up>


Well it might be waterproof, but it may not include saltwater proof. I think that is the case. If so, then the salt got into your camera and caused something to not work. I would take it in Olympus and let them look at it. It could just be a bad camera.

My guess the lcd screen was faulty or the water leaked in there and shortcircit it.

This happened to me before and its because i put the battery in the charger the wrong way up. Make sure you put it in so that the side with OLYMPUS in it in big letters is facing up!

Pictures on memory card


A lot of cameras these days use sub directory folders on the memory stick. Try using a computer to drag all the photos to the top most layer directory on the memory stick.
