Summary: Worst camera I've ever bought. Broke first time I used it. Claims to be waterproof up to 5m but did not even last water resistance. Returns weren't accepted and was not compensated anything for the 5 pictures I spent $140 on. Do not buy this.
This is a niche product, not an all around camera.

Summary: I bought this to work with. Low quality images were fine, but I needed it to hold up under dusty or wet conditions, as well as take a hit. In the course of a year, I dropped it three times, it did get a little wet in the rain on a couple occasions, and was constantly covered in dust, and performed adequately for six months. Gradually, the menu buttons stopped working, and it is at Fuji getting repaired. And they are taking a LONG time.
Summary: This camera actually took fairly decent underwater photos but has a terrible latch design. The latch fails to close all the way, thus making it totally useless after about 2 trips underwater and 1 minor fall down a hill while climbing. Fuji replaced the camera once but is now refusing to take any responsibility. Go elsewhere for a waterproof or shockproof camera.
Summary: I bought a Fijufilm, I got a NIKON, NO WATER RESISTANT COLOR RED! No comparison with the camera they say sell. It is THE WORST PURCHASE I MADE ON AMAZON ... never never never never buy this ...
Summary: Do not purchase this camera especially if you have any thoughts of it getting even a little bit wet. Within seconds of going into Hanuama Bay in Honolulu the camera no longer worked. It was in about 1 foot of water so well within the 16 feet that the camera supposedly works. Fuji was not helpful when I called the issue in. I bought the camera at Costco more than 90 days ago, but had never tried it in water until now.
Piece of JUNK, Amazon should stop selling FUJI Products

Summary: This camera was the worse headache ever. It flooded 5 times and this last time FUJI wants $133, and the new camera is $149. The amount of money spend sending it back was ridiculous!This camera is NOT underwater,and is by far the worse camera on the market right now, Amazon should stop selling FUJI products, this company does not stand by their products, the customer service is almost non existent, they don't contact you when the camera arrives to be fixed and in one of...
Summary: It is a cheap camera? (by the price, yes, it is!), but the quality is great, A known brand, 14 mpx, Waterproof, (desides dust/frezze/shok proof). by less 100 bucks! come on! it is a great deal! I try it underwater (on a bath tub), just for fun, I took pretty well photos!... after that the cam was leaking water from the joint lines, a few drops... (The water never gone into the internal parts). I pretend to take it to the beach and try it under field conditions !!
