Summary: Bought this camera for a vacation to Mexico and underwater intended shots. The photos came out fair but not exceptional. Photo quality was just okay above water as well, glad I had another camera with me for vacation shots.

Summary: There are many reviews about the quality of the pictures that this camera can take - I'll skip all of that since beauty is the eye of the beholder. For my limited opinion, the camera took decent shots for its form factor, size, resolution and the conditions that it was in.
Summary: I thought this was a pretty good camera for the price. I gave it to my son to take on a canoe trip and he used it a lot during the year, took a lot of decent outdoor photos and videos. Even with heavy use by a teenager, consumer electronics should last longer, so I only give it three stars.
Summary: I paid $100 for this camera and I pretty much got what I expected: A solid camera with reasonable picture quality and good battery life. I've used this camera in three environments: while paddle boarding in the bay, while lounging in the water at Lake Havasu and while partaking in the Camp Pendleton...
Summary: I got this as a gift from my husband and kids for my birthday. We took in on family vacation. Every day we took it in the pool and every day the screen developed dots and then became very foggy. Picture and video quality suffered. My sister in law has the same camera, that is why I chose this one.
Summary: I bought this camera about a year ago, and it still works great! It is really durable, completely waterproof, sufficient battery life, GREAT video quality, and fun to use. The only thing is that the pics come put blurry and the quality is poor
Summary: It's a decent camera for the money. The picture quality seems fine. There's a lag (a couple of seconds?) between when you push the button to take the photo and when it actually 'snaps' the photo, so trying to capture my 14 month old sometimes gets a little frustrating.
Summary: I am actually afraid to test it in water since my Olympus broke. I am leary of the water test. I am sure it works fine though. The picture quality is great as long as your subject is not moving at all. The video is aweseom though, even shooting in High Def.
For the price you can't go wrong! But you will need a 2nd camera if not using it underwater

Summary: I really wanted the new model that just came out, XP30 but it came out the same day I was leaving to my trip so I got this one for my underwater pictures, and for the price... YOU CAN'T GO WRONG! beautiful underwater pictures, great video too...
