Summary: I was very surprised when I found that this camera took videos as well. That excitement didn't last long when I found that it didn't record audio for the video. The instructions could have been clearer. Despite these issues, the camera is excellent. Buy one!
AWESOME PRODUCT! GREAT VALUE FOR THE MONEY....................

Summary: THIS IS A AMAZING CAMERA IS THE BEST DEAL THAT I HAVE MADE.I LIKE THIS PRODUCT BECAUSE IT IS WATERPROOF. I VISIT SOME HOTEL IN PUERTO RICO AND MY KIDS LIKES TO DO SOME PHOTOS IN THE SWIMING POLL AND UNDER THE WATER.
Summary: I don't like the camera very much. When I dived the camera into the water, the lens went all foggy and I had to take the camera out of the water. Also the quality of the pictures are low and it consumes a lot of batteries. Even though I have the charger, I hate the fact that only 10 pictures are taken with the flash and the battery is already off.
Summary: I will try and return this camera, you could not see anything in the view finder on what you were taking a photo of. After the first use water leaked into the battery compartment and the camera stopped working. The funtion key were vary hard to work. Switching from movie mode back to camera mode I had to turn the camera off to reset. Spend the extra $20 and buy a better camera.
Summary: We love under water picture taking ! :) But if you don't have a great camera to take them with, then all is lost and that is just what happened with this camera, almost all the pictures were eighter blurry or dark :( and we were in clear water...very upsetting...
Summary: I used the camera three times for a period of no longer than half an hour of underwater use. And I did turn it off when not in use. Each time I had to install 2 new batteries...total of 6 for not even 1 1/2 hours use. Not worth the hastle!
OK to "play" but not worth risking the memories of a vacation

Summary: The first camera I was sent had a bad rear display. Nothing could be seen but dark moving pixelated forms. I sent it back, received a second camera. The rear screen is better, but still not up to the same quality as other cameras in the price range. It's difficult to see images when using indoors. Outdoors, in good light, it is a little better but not nearly as good as other cameras in the same price range. Whether or not it is waterproof/splashproof remains to be seen.
Summary: Wish I would have gotten a non-waterproof version of much better quality for the same $$$ and put it in a ziplock for my use. LCD viewer can't be adjusted and is useless during daylight. No peephole viewer either. Digital zoom appears very grainy on viewfinder (if you can see it) but clears up significantly after picture is taken. Appears to be a fixed-focus camera with all the technology of a disposable, but with higher resolution (12 MP).
