Summary: Bought this by request for my daughters graduation present. She was headed to Alaska on a trip with grandma. When she returned she had nothing but praises for the ease of the camera to use. She said it was perfect and had no complaints what so ever.
Summary: I purchased this camera for a trip to SE Asia, and was definitely hesitant about many of its features. Let me just say that the video quality is very high, the sound quality is good, the image stabilization works well, and it is indeed waterproof.
Summary: Owned this camera for over 2 years now and during that time it's been face-to-face with leopard seals, humpback whales, cave critters, mountain tops, and generally anyplace else where you wouldn't want to take a regular digital camera. During that time it's performed flawlessly with nary a hiccup.
Summary: I ordered this product from AVGEAR US. My bad for not testing it out right away. No matter what setting we used the video was jerky. When we contacted the seller they refused to return or refund the product. I am now stuck with a product that doesn't work. AVGear US is also NOT in the United States.
Summary: I got this as my first camcorder. It was on sale at another site. All I wanted was a small camcorder that I could shoot desent quality videos and pictures. this fits the bill. I really like the compact size too. It's easy to carry around and waterproof.
Summary: I am very impressed with this camera. I bought it with the express intent on using it under water (a trip to Jamaica where there is lots of waterfalls!!) The camera worked great, and as advertised. I would not hesitate to buy it again.
Summary: I purchased my Xacti CA 9 about 2 yrs ago (not from Amazon). It worked great for "land" pictures and we never worried about it in the rain. A few weeks ago we went on a vacation that included beach and ocean time.
Summary: This camera is fantastic! Great quality in every way. i read a lot of reviews about them messing up and it had me skeptical but after getting it and testing it i figured it was more than likely user error.
OK for underwater use but get a newer waterproof camera instead

Summary: The pictures from this camcorder are actually not bad but I had hoped for better video quality after reading some reviews. I guess it was OK compared to other waterproof camcorders but my newer waterproof camera takes better video.
