Reviewed the waterproof, tough, compact Olympus Tough TG-860 camera with a unique selfie-screen and ultra wide-angle lens.
Do not buy this camera !!!!
I have purchased the camera listed above twice in the past 3 years. The first time I purchased it I used it gently for about 6 months when the flip screen went completely dead and would no longer show any image. The camera still would take pictures and worked except that the view screen showed no image at all. I was able to return that camera under warranty. I liked the style of the TG-860 so I purchased a replacement of the exact some model. Now a year and a half later the exact same problem has occurred with this second camera. I strongly suspect there is a design flaw with the flip style view screen. Looks like the wire connection between the camera and the screen eventually snaps off from even minimal use ( flipping the screen up). I have become used to expecting a high standard from Olympus cameras and am deeply disappointed that this flaw has occurred twice in the last two cameras I have purchased.
