Summary: I bought this camera to take some pictures in the pool, in a boat, and during some low-intensity water sports. It works fine for that, so I guess it fulfilled its main purpose. I should say I never took it more than 4 feet under water, so I can't vouch for it beyond the 4-foot mark. As for image quality. It's acceptable in broad daylight at low ISO. In the dark, the image quality is terrible with a huge amount of noise.
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: 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.
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 !!
