Summary: So far the camera seems ok. I keep having to remove the battery and reinstalling it or purposely drop it to make a good battery connection. I bought this camera specifically fora vacation in Cozumel to take underwater video and pictures. It did its job for that, I just wish the image quality was better and the battery problems were fixed. Also the battery door is quite tight, I don't think my wife would be able to close it without it opening underwater.
Summary: We bought this camera for our big Mexico vacation this year, it came in super quick which was a relief however the battery wouldn't charge so we had to purchase another one because it wouldn't have shipped before we left. I know we cut it close when ordering the camera but one would think all the pieces would work. It took great photo's and the quality seems great. However we also noticed once arriving in Mexico that the camera it self wouldn't hold a charge.
Summary: the camera is absolutely beautiful. I love the blue color is so beautiful and fragile at the same time ... the only problem is that they sent with damaged drums .... and here in Venezuela are not products of that brand so .... advice .. Try it before sending a product to see if it works well ..... so I put them 3 star.
Summary: was excited....then disappointed......used it as a trial at my kids concert and the video was shaky.....the sound was horrible and before i left i had to make sure the microphone plug was in securely because it had come out earlier in the day.....i'm working on sending it back....just not worth it.
Summary: I use reviews to guide me, and should have taken the vast number of negative reviews on here seriously. I understand many complaints are due to 'operator incompetence', and wanted to like this camera, but sadly, it's just not a well made piece of photographic equipment. We bought this for a vacation with plans to do some snorkeling/beach combing. The camera did so great until the day before we left, and then totally 'crapped out' on us.
Summary: the camera worked fine, however the battery life is TERRIBLE. It needs HOURS and HOURS to charge, and if you use it for 20 minutes a whole bar goes down, you only get three. The next day I went to take it out and it was dead. Completely dead. I'm going to attempt to return it, but I may be S.O.L. And the chick who was talking about how difficult to open and close the battery port was right.
Summary: Water proof, but has fatal flaw.... So, after purchasing this camera to take to Mexico I was really looking forward to taking underwater pictures when diving. The performance was acceptable for a product at this price, except for the video (sounds like your in a tunnel). I hear people say get a microphone to help, but that is not practical for the purpose of the device. While in Mexico, we were hanging around the pool alot and I had my camera with me.
