Hey aussiegirl14,
If what you’re saying is the camera is on sale on BestBuy.com then yes a Best Buy™ store will sell you the camera at the lowest price Best Buy™ has it for sale for. I hope this helps!

My Olympus 1050 SW looks like it might have a little water inside the camera. The lens is foggy. I didn't take it very deep the last time I was in the water with it, but I did store it in a cooler and...


You can TRY and dry out the camera, but I can pretty much guarantee you that there is corrosion inside and it will eventually fail if it hasn't done so already. The Olympus Stylus Tough cameras are not very tough or waterproof unfortunately. I have seen dozens of them with smashed LCD windows or that have leaked water.

Don't buy a waterproof camera, cause they aren't waterproof. Buy an underwater case and put your camera in that.

To try and dry out the camera, some people suggest putting it in a ziplock back with rice to pull out the moisture, it's not a bad thing to try. The fog in the lens MIGHT go away, but it will most likely leave spots or a big ring which will show up on all your pictures.

Your camera is most likely a goner, sorry to say.

Not so waterproof?


Since the camera is billed as waterproof I would send it to an Olympus service center for an evaluation to see if it going to be covered under warranty for repair if I were you. The repair techs will evaluate the camera and let you know if it is indeed repairable.

Olympus will charge a flat rate repair fee for this product if beyond the one year factory warranty or the warranty is voided. The cost is $107.85 plus your local sales tax. This covers parts and labor, factory cleaning and diagnostic check, 6 month warranty and the cost of shipping the product back to you is all included in that price.

Price matching question


BestBuy.com Price Matching/Price Guarantee

If you've made a BestBuy.com purchase and discover a lower price offered on our Web site or at a Best Buy store on the same available brand and model, let us know and we'll match that price on the spot, tax included.

I found this on bestbuy.com. I know you already bought the camera, but they should be able to honor the lower price.

Hey bgdiver,
Our Best Buy™ stores always strive to be the most knowledgeable about the products we sell, and provide our customers with the best customer service. Our Best Buy™ stores will price match any local competitor as long as the competitor has the TV in stock and it is not on clearance sale. The competitor does have to be a physical location in the local area of our Best Buy™ store. I hope this helps!

Hey ChelleTN,
Our Best Buy™ stores will definitely price match, but they don't price match any internet site other than BestBuy.com.

REBATES


Hey pbastle,
Our Best Buy™ stores, and BestBuy.com don't have any rebates on this camera right now, but BestBuy.com does have this camera on sale right now. I did find some internet retailers that were advertising this camera with an instant rebate, but their price with the rebate was the same as the BestBuy.com sale price. I hope this helps!

Hey areli_pm,
Yes our Best Buy™ stores should have record of any performance service plan you have on your camera. The performance service plan should also be listed on the receipt for your camera.

Price match???


Hey TeacherLisa,
Yes our Best Buy™ stores will price match, but the store we're price matching has to be in the local area of the Best Buy™ store that is doing the price match, and the competitor has to have the product in stock, and the product can't be on clearance.

I just posted this answer on an old Dec. 07 posting.

In case you can't find it, try opening the DC IN / USB port cover just to the right of the dial. This breaks the waterproof seal and allows the camera to open. I think the design flaw is an inadequate volume differential in the water sealed cavity to properly account for the change in volume caused by the lens opening / retracting. The USB cover can be closed once the lens is open to restore the waterproof characteristics.
