Summary: Worked a few times but after it really did some under water usage it no longer worked properly. For the price I'm sure there's something better out there. I think it's better as "water resistant", but not waterproof.
Summary: I purchased this camera because it is advertised as waterproof. Took it snorkeling in Hawaii. It is not waterproof at all. Camera is now broken! So disappointed. I have already replaced it with a Nikon.
Summary: I took this camera snorkeling and it started to not work after having it in the water for about an hour. I had to dry it out for a few days for it to work again. It is not waterproof- only water resistant unlike advertised.
Summary: This camera does great when you are outdoors with perfect lighting. Besides that the quality is horrible. Any indoor picture taken or any picture taken at night is horrible. I thought I had some decent pictures on my vacation. They dont look bad on the little screen. But uploaded to the computer the quality is not so good. I deleted more pictures than I saved. Luckily we traveled with others and I have their photos as well. I have had 2 Canon powershot camera prior.
Summary: Received as a Father Day's Gift. The camera worked well for the summer. Picture quality was very good for a waterproof point and shoot. The view screen was difficult to see in bright sunlight making it difficult to take pictures. It also took some time to get use to the small control buttons. Major problems developed when I took the camera to Mexico on a snorkeling trip last September. It was difficult to use the Viewscreen most of the time in the water.
Pros: Compact Design., 5x Zoom., Picture Quality., Good Video., Good selection of programed Presets.
Cons: Viewscreen difficult to see in bright light or in the water., Service and/or Repair., Possible moisture seal issue., Easy to block lens with finger when taking action shots.
Summary: I have several DSLR cameras and wanted something that would fit in my pocket for day to day photography and wanted something that was waterproof so I could take it to the pool or not have to worry about it getting wet or breaking if I dropped it. I do wish I would have spent the extra money and went with something that took better pictures, espc in lower lighting or action shots. I am not saying it is a bad camera, but I think it could do a lot better.
Summary: Got the camera at Costco for a deal because I had a coupon for some extra savings and I was going to the Virgin Islands, and really wanted to use the under water feature. I got the camera about 1 week before going on vacation and started taking pictures of my dog and what not, and while uploading the pictures to my computer, I noticed a small white dot on each one. This was a "bad" pixel.
Summary: i would have given it 1 star because the audio quality of video was shockingly poor but i gave it 2 because i loved everything else about the camera. i'm no expert but have been a fujifilm user for many, many years. had to replace my f20 only because i dropped it...and so i waited and waited for the release of the xp10. it was a happy day indeed when i finally got my hand on the xp10.
