Summary: I got this for my dad for Christmas as a gift because he was going to Ecuador for the month of February and they were going to be staying right on the beach and my dad loves swimming and marine life. The ruggedness of the camera is fine. There were no problems with its waterproof qualities. But the picture quality is terrible. Terrible. My dad is not any professional photographer by any means but he takes quite decent pics with his digital SLR camera.
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.
