Love this

Stephanie Layton, Amazon
25 February 2016
  • Summary: Best Camcorder I could of got. Was a lot of fun on holiday going around the pool with the family! Its lovely not having the worry of water getting on it. We didn't put it directly underwater, but it was pretty soaked when we got out and left it to dry in the sun - not an issue!

Sturdy, great image quality, short battery life.

Mr Adrian Ionescu, Amazon

  • Summary: I thought I had ordered the variant that allows high frame-speed shooting and wi fi connectivity. It turns out I hadn't (the one I wanted has an extra letter at the end of its technical name) which strikes me as a particularly daft piece of marketing. The camera is a competent all-rounder.

Great video quality from a water proof / weather proof unit

Woodburner, Amazon

  • Summary: Really impressed with the video quality from this unit. I wanted a weatherproof camcorder for use on holiday and this fits the bill perfectly. It's compact, easy to use and delivers a lovely footage. Stills aren't bad either.

Good camcorder, but WAIT, THERE'S A CATCH

Katie, Amazon
27 June 2013
  • Summary: I did a lot of research on active camcorders to find out which was the best for me, and settled on the WA3. However, reading the detail in the downloadable manual, I found out that "the integrity of the rubber [waterproofing] seals may decrease after about 1 year, with use and age.

Does a great job.

Dieselwoof, Amazon
27 June 2013
  • Summary: This is a superb little camera. Firstly the image quality of photographs is very good, almost as good as a DLSR (which we have). Using the recording needs a steady hand as the video appears shaky on playback, takes a little practice but great quality as well.

Surprisingly good

clive colllett, Amazon
27 June 2013
  • Summary: I needed a camcorder that provided easy use, non-threatening appearance, and the ability to snap decent still pictures as well. This device delivers on all of these and much more. The scene modes are very useful, the image stabilisation, while only digital, is very impressive, as is the option of a...

A camera with the feel good factor

mr simkins, Amazon
27 June 2013
  • Summary: The fulfilment of my order was both very efficient and fast , whilst the camcorder itself embraces all the atributes that you are likely to need and saves you having to carry an extra high resolution stills camera . Its also looks smart and is easy to use ,

Judith Falkner, Amazon

  • Summary: It is a bit fiddly fitting the USB cable without ejecting the battery. Was very disappointed that you cannot upload direct from the camera to a PC (and internet) as I used to with a previous camcorder.

Really pleased with the new camcorder

Steve, Amazon
25 June 2013
  • Summary: So far seems simple and intuitive to operate plus it offers lots of features. Havn't yet been brave enough to try it underwater. The camera case as part of the deal is too big, so I've got a new belt pouch for it. The tripod is very small and light

Excellent camcorder package

K. Lydeard, Amazon
25 June 2013
  • Summary: Excellent camcorder package. Instructions easy to follow, even for a complete novice like me! I am still getting to grips with anything other than the basics but the picture quality is great. I have filmed facing away from me ...
