    "I would definitely go with the Olympus or a Nickon one for underwater digital cameras. TG-3 is a very decent camera with a very reasonable price. Cheaper than TG-5 and almost effective as it. "

    "If you want to buy a camera simply for the sake of buying the camera, then go ahead but if you want to take decent photos, look elsewhere. Granted, for $50 can't ask too much but come one, SVP Aqua 5800 should be even cheaper than that. In a way, it is a toy camera and after admitting that fact, the atrocious image quality doesn't seem so surprising at all but the person is clearly looking for a high quality product and this is not even remotely close to that.
