Summary: Ordered it as a late gift for my 13 daughter on other side of US. She loved the camera & all the features. She found it easy to use & enjoys underwater features living in Florida. I earned lots of "Dad Points" with this gift!!
Summary: A good replacement for my FLIP camera. I wish it had built in movie making software. The FLIP was so easy to just plug in, piece together and upload my real estate sales videos but I am getting the hang of more sophisticated software... Lens field of view is a little limited and the exposure settings may need some tweaking. However, for the price and the value of not needing to try to use my phone for video shots is right on.
Summary: Good camera. It's nice that it's waterproof. It's perfect for shooting videos in the rain! Don't want to take my $10,000 film camera in the rain! It sort of makes the rain look thicker because of the small lens. It's a good B-Roll camera. Great for Vlogging or Vacation quick moment shoots. This camera lacks good audio though because of the small tiny mic it has. No internal microphones or headphone jack!!!
Summary: Shipping was quick - I bought this for my 8 year old son who loves to take pictures and videos. He loves this camera. The camera is good and the picture quality is outstanding. It is comparable to the quality you find on the higher end smart phones, but without the phone. The biggest con that I see is that the charging section is a little flimsy and if you are not careful it can be bent or broken easily and you would then not have any way of charging the camera.
Summary: I took this to a water park with my kids. I'll use it again for "wet" events, but the picture quality isn't that great (better than a cell phone or disposable camera, but worse than a mid-range point and shoot camera). However, it did not leak, did not break, and stood up to a beating hanging off my wrist at a water park. For the price, I'd buy it again, but I'd never use it as my primary camera.
