          It can very easily upload to a smartphone. I'm not sure about direct to cloud, but when I post to my iPhone it goes straight to my iCloud.

            For selfies? Just flip it up and take selfies as you would on your phone, but this camera even has flash for selfies. It is awesome.

                Answer

                This camera performs mediocre in low light setting. Recommend choosing a Nikon instead as they do better under minimal lighting.

                  How does the Olympus TG-870 turn on and off? I had an Olympus Stylus 400 which I liked very much, but the sliding lens cover (also turned the camera on/off) stuck open. Repaired, it lasted a year. Olympus still using a sliding cover?   (2 Answers)

                    Answer

                    There is no sliding cover for the lens. A power button on the top turns it on and off and I believe it will power off on its own after enough time.
