13 year-old could have used gift with greater 'Fun Content"

DCM, Amazon
2 September 2014
  • Summary: Inexpensive and resultingly adequate Digital Camera. Perhaps not as suitable as we thought it would be for a tech-savvy 13 year old. As a result, it didn't get much use before it was 'Drawered'. A gift certificate would have been a better choice on our part......

  • Summary: Haven't tried it underwater, really doesn't get used much, bought this for son who broke two nice Nikon coolpix cameras.(which are awesome little cameras just not designed for rough kids) the quality of pictures are just so so, it does work well for a video camera which is why we bought it, since son loves to take videos.

  • Summary: I bought this for my son after he broke his other handycam. He is happy, but not what he wanted! The search continues.

kind of a bummer

Kristen L., Amazon
17 June 2013
  • Summary: I was so excited with this camera I bought for my trip to St. Thomas. It was a great size, fair price, fun colour and seemed to work great out of water. I tested it in the pool before I tried the ocean and had great success. I did my first ocean run in about 3 feet of water. It took great video and great pictures. It was even cloudy that day so I was super impressed with the image quality. Then I decided to go into deeper water.

Not an action sport camera

Bernard A. Crenn, Amazon
8 June 2013
  • Summary: Compared to my previous Flip video camera (not waterproof!), it is an OK camera but it has a few design flaws: 1) the lens is so close to the top edge that your fingers will likely interfere, 2) not a one hand operation as the operation button is completely on bottom edge, 3) the view screen is half taken up with useless techie info so that you can't really see what you are filming and you cannot hide it.

was expecting worst.

Meganicus, Amazon
21 February 2013
  • Summary: It's not bad at all in terms of quality, I intend to use it at the beach and underwater and so far the tests are pretty good, the seals are tight and locks are good, it won't open by accident. For $60 couldn't expect any better.

Nice little camera

MsB, Amazon
14 January 2013
  • Summary: I had hoped that this tiny little camera would replace another that my fiance has. He used it on New Years Eve. The camera lacks a flash so the still pictures are not very clear indoors. The video feature is a bit better but, still, dark. I guess this is a camera for outdoor use.

Had to Return

Christopher Laub, Amazon
5 January 2013
  • Summary: ..after taking it in the ocean twice. They sent me a new camera despite telling me they were just going to fix something and send it back, so that was nice, but it doesn't take great still shots and up to this point the outside levers get jammed after using it in the ocean. I did not, however, clean it using normal water after taking it in the ocean, which the tech guy said I should do.

Tripod Mount Malfunction

B. Surkan, Amazon
20 October 2011
  • Summary: The camera seems to work as advertised with the exception that the tripod mounting hole in the bottom does not fit standard tripods well. It seems to be configured to a different groove standard. For people not using a tripod, this is a fine little camera. If you need to use a tripod, beware.
