Eleven owners thought it was strong and durable. Last year Possessed.by.a.lemon wrote in their review of this digital camera on Amazon “Slender for all its robustness, its self-proclaimed toughness is backed up by its shockproof” and scored it 4 stars out of 5. In the same month Tasha wrote “Decent, tough little camera” in her Olympus Stylus Tough TG-870 review and rated this digital camera 4 stars out of 5. In April last year Techking mentioned on Amazon “The Tough 870 is my favourite of them all” in their review of this digital camera.
Two owners who bought the product thought it was good at resisting water ingress. Thomas Pots wrote on Amazon “For example, there are four underwater modes, sub-modes for that, such as “cloudy” (for diving in cloudy conditions?), shadow brightening, face recognition, scene illumination”. Angela said on Amazon last year “It's easy to use and is also waterproof” in her review of this digital camera.
Two people who reviewed it considered that it was well made. Angela gave it a rating of a maximum of 5 stars and she mentioned on Amazon “It's the camera's sturdy build which makes it different from most similarly priced cameras”.
One person thought it was easy to damage or scratch.
