Great camera for my needs

Julie A OBaoighill, Amazon
28 March 2014
  • Summary: I love using this camera. I don't have to worry about dropping it or using it in bad weather (rain or snow). It is easy to hold and shoot and take out in a hurry. The color and resolution looks wonderful. The only problem I had was that the menu was in Japanese and it took me about 2 hours to figure out how to change it to English. I cannot remember how I found it. It would be great if the sellers printed that information and sent it with the camera.

Nice idea and form factor, but features are lacking, very basic.

  • Summary: Fun camera, but could (and should) easily be a lot more, for those who do more advanced video work. Must replace the waterproof seal yearly to use it underwater, but no way to buy them. Crippled manual focus (no magnifier or focus peaking) and exposure modes (no visible light meter, zebra stripes, or histogram), no 24/25p capture, and time-lapse mode has pitifully few frame rates to choose from, and plays back at only 10 fps (jerky). No lens protection.

  • Summary: Very good camera. The remote use WiFi is the best feature. I link it to my Samsung tablet and it works a treat. I've not tested it under water yet,, but am confident it will be fine having used it's predecessor while snorkelling in salt water.

  • Summary: Does what it says on the box. Brilliant if filming underwater - pool or sea. Brilliant quality picture! Only down side is battery life - bought some spares to carry with me. Comes with software, but haven't used yet.

Great camcorder very happy with it

L. Shakespeare, Amazon

  • Summary: I have been playing with this camera and I think its great, Video quality is great and I've been using it's slow motion feature for filming martial arts and insects. It works great, the slower you want the camera to record the lower the quality but then that is expected, the resulting video is just what I needed. I have also tried its time lapse feature and recorded 1.5hrs of time lapse into a minute of footage. It looks really cool.

Great

  • Summary: A light and easy to use camera with amazing quality images. It has has all the features you need including waterproof to 15m, shock proof, auto steady, super slow motion record etc etc. The zoom is good enough for the average person and digital zoom isnt as bad as some but I never recommend digital zoom. It would be great if the camera came with an extra battery because you have less than an hour with the one it comes with..
  • Pros: Easy to use, Compact, Build quality, Screen size
  • Cons: Battery life

***FINALLY, A RUGGED HANDHELD VIDEO CAMERA - AWESOME VALUE AND QUALITY***

Scott Elder, Perth Northern Suburbs (Pearsall), Teds
6 May 2014
  • Summary: Purchased this in Jan 2014 and have since racked up approx 13 hours of footgae with this great little unit. Picture quality is AMAZING, with really cool functions and features that give the user an array of filming modes and opportunities. I love the fact that it can go under water, and the quality of the underwater footage is exceptional...... My only issue is that im left handed!!....
