    I know this isn't dslr crew, but is anyone familiar with this camera? I need another point and shoot (my Fujifilm Z1 quit working) and I came across this camera. It seems pretty neat being waterproof and such, espcially since I am taking a vacation to the Florida Keys next week. Stevesdigicams.com seemed to like it for the most part. Anyone have any pros/cons about it? Thanks

    The con is the use of XD cards, but they do come with an adapter to use MicroSD cards.

    I just bought the 850SW from Costco a few weeks ago for $279. It comes with an Olympus case, as well as an Olympus 1 GB XD-m card.

    Best Buy sells it for $279, sans the case and 1 GB XD-m card.


    I was dunking it in the fiber paper wash tank at our photo lab, and have convinced some others that it's a cool camera to have.
