  • Summary: I am dissapointed with the overall quality of the picture and the sound in this product. Every time you move your hand or press a button it is extremely loud in the video while you can barely hear what anybody is saying. the picture has quite a bit of digital noise too.

Save Your Money

  • Summary: Save the cost of this camera, add a few dollars and buy something else. Video was shot in 720HD and the camera was mounted on a tripod. There is no audio in my video review because when I played it back there was too much cussing.
  • Pros: Other than it's ability to be used in a wet environment, there are none.
  • Cons: The biggest con is the one pulled by the manufacturer of this camera. Video quality is abyssmal. Does not zoom smoothly. Still photo quality is subpar to an inexpensive cell phone.

DO NOT BUY THIS ITEM!

The camera's battery life is nearly an hour, and it arrived 3 days late. I am extremely disappointed in this product, and i will NEVER buy a Mustek product again.

Cool camera, but not very waterproof

Cynthia Welch, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this camera to use to shoot kids swimming in the pool. Well, the first time I used this camera, after about an hour in the pool, I noticed that the lens was fogging from the INSIDE! The videos that I took up until that point were great. It may be more "water resistant" than "water proof.
