Summary: Great camera to record under water. I've used on my last vacations at the sea and the swimming pool and works fine. The lens fogs sometimes. But when leave under the sun for 2 minutes the problem is fixed. The digital zoom isn't good. When you past the 5x, the images turns pixelated. The camera Don't have image stabilization. At least I don't find it. But the good thing is that you can carry it in your pocket and be ready for any moment that you want to make a shoot.
Summary: I really love this camcorder, it makes great HD movies, even underwater, and fits in your pocket. The image is very good, colors are bright, even in low light you can get good results. The only downside is that battery life is short. Maybe the camera drains energy even when it's turned off, and often I find the batteries are dead when I pick the camera after it's been stored for some time.
Summary: I have had this video cam for awhile now. I have yet to take it under water however I have used it during a winter rain storm and when it has snowed. It does the job well. The picture quality is good but not great. The zoom should never be used, I don't know why they put it in. I bought this one after I had a bad experience with the Kodak water proof video cams. It has word flawlessly right out of the box. A much better buy.
Summary: The HD video is awesome from the physical size of the device. The still pictures leave a bit to be desired. I can replace my DSLR with this unit in a pinch, but if I want really high quality images, out comes the Pentax. Unfortunately with this unit, all the zoom is done electronically, which means the unit basically takes the available pixels in the CCD and 'stretches', or magnifies them, leaving very blurred, grainy images.
Summary: I was concerned that this camcorder would leak after reading some reviews, but I took it snorkeling several times, and I dropped it in muddy water once. It never leaked a drop. I had a great experience shooting underwater 1080p video of sea turtles in Hawaii. The built-in screen looked a little dark and blurry while I was shooting so I was concerned, but the actual video was bright and focused and looked great.
Summary: Bought the item because I did not like using my phone for all my photos and video footage. Love the size and light weight of it and great clear photos, have not tried the video yet, will soon. I feel it could be a bit user friendly when it comes to viewing your photos, can be confusing to locate pictures. I do not like the delayed time it takes for the camera to take the photo, you push the button but it takes like 20 sec. before it shoots the pic.
