Leaks, takes terrible pictures and video stability is poor

James Worley, Amazon
15 August 2013
  • Summary: This is a rather disappointing product which does not do what it says on the tin. Mine leaked after just a few minutes swimming at less than 2 feet depth, the seawater caused the USB connector and release mechanism to rust, the only way I could then get my footage off was to get a micro-SD convertor...

Total crap - won't focus - everything blurry

N. Loper, Amazon
4 April 2013
  • Summary: Pretty bummed out by this garbage camcorder. Got it as a gift and was excited to shoot some HD video to use online. Unfortunately I waited too long to open it and the warranty had expired (yes that was my bad). By the time I got around to testing it out, I found the focus completely non-functional.

Leaked the first time underwater

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased this camera last April to use on the cruise I just completed to the Caribbean. When I received the camera I checked it out, trying both the photo mode and the camcorder mode to make sure it worked properly, which it did.

Leaked on second use

Marcia G Stewart, Amazon
2 January 2013
  • Summary: We purchased this camera for an upcoming trip to Hawaii and wanted to be able to video the great reefs as we snorkeled. On the second use the camera died and we missed some amazing photos/video opportunities. The door mechanism apparently leaked and shorted the camera.

KEEP IT DRY!!!

fxn2mix "that guy", Amazon

  • Summary: As well documented above, this camera is not at all waterproof. I had no problems at all with the camera from January to June, when I took it swimming. My son took 3 short (10 second) videos of a fish in the local swimming hole, no deeper than a foot.

Not Waterproof

seattlesam, Amazon

  • Summary: Camera was not too shabby until I decided to snorkel with it. Okay, so I am not about to think that a camera this cheap can have significant waterproof capabilities...however I felt obligated to write the review to give a warning.

Total Garbage

Dennis Sirjuesingh "Dennis Sirjuesingh", Amazon
17 July 2012
  • Summary: I bought this camera for the waterproof capabilities, nothing else. I know a lot about photography having 15 high end digital cameras, and one exceptional Canon video camera, and over 30 years experience but none are waterproof, so this was a pleasant surprise.
