Easy and nice.

  • Summary: A very nice camcorder. It was a gift for my daughter and then i inherit it because the panel where the pictures does not tilt all the way so you could not record yourself and see yourself at the same time. But it is ok, it zooms very nicely and above all it is easy to use. For the money it was a great value for people like me that does not record so often and when they do it becomes an easy task.

Great...when not in water

  • Summary: I bought this camera for the summer, because I spend lots of time in and around the water. I used it before, though, for taping and taking pictures around the house, never getting it wet. It worked great, with excellent picture quality and was very convenient to have in my hand. In June, I took it to the pool for the first time. I pressed the underwater button, started the video, and then put it in the water about 3 inches under for about 5 seconds.

  • Summary: Very happy with it until it slipped out of it case and fell 4' while hiking. The screen stopped showing images and was white only. Evidently it is not as rugged as advertised.

  • Summary: This was one of the biggest head ache's I have ever had. This camera fogged up the first time i got it wet. I did everything right too. With in one week of the fog issue the camera was dead. I bought extra insurence with the camera from panasonic, they got my camera, lost it and now refuse to give me a new one. I have been on the phone with them for hours.

1st time in the water Camcorder was destroyed

  • Summary: The camcorder worked great, just as expected. My girlfriend used it for 3 weeks in Ireland with no problems, but once we entered the ocean with it just 1 month after purchasing the camecorder never turned on again. We didn't knock it, bump it, drop it, go in above our heads and it just quit. I tried to dry it, no luck. Even took it apart and then saw the corrosion. To add insult to injury the broken camcorder was stolen at an African airport by the airport security.

  • Summary: Seems to work very well. Good optical zoom range and pretty good capture in lower light levels. Haven't taken it into the water yet but mostly wanted it to use if rainy or foggy.

LOVE IT!!!

  • Summary: Look, this is a very "fun", portable, waterproof video camera, and we have gotten some great clips in the past 17 mos. using it...ABSOLUTELY no regrets! This is NOT a high-quality still camera, a camera that was designed for making motion pictures, or even commercial quality videos. It's a great little video camera that you will get your moneys worth out of, just watching people's expression when you "drop it" in the water!

Great camera, I thoroughly enjoy it.

  • Summary: Many reviews have berated the video quality of this camcorder but I have no complaints. If you are big on videos and buying new video cameras every 1-2 years then you might complain about the quality. However I find the video quality good since the last camcorder we owned was from the late 90's and used tapes. This camera is very easy to use and I've had nothing but compliments from people who have seen me using it.

Good for the use ans money

E. Beyer, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this to use at the pool and with ATV's. At the pool it works fine in the water and out. I'm still waiting to use it off-road. The software sent with it takes some getting used to, and the video is not recorded in MPEG and must be converted with the supplied software. A hassle, but it works. It is tough and waterproof, and that is what I needed.
