Loved pics and features, couldn't take the overheating

Summary: This was a great little camera to get nice and excited over. Waterproof to 20 feet, all those great features, HD video, stereo audio... all that stuff was awesome. However, I HAD to return this camera. It was going to just frustrate me and make me kick myself for spending the money if I didn't!
Summary: We took this camera to Tahiti to take underwater photographs. It makes a tremendous amount of noise as it takes photos underwater and uses a lot of battery power when doing so. The photos are not as clear as the previous model. I am not pleased with this camera.
Summary: I was so excited to get this camera. I read all the reviews I could find and thought this one was just what I was looking for. Only one week and I knew I made a mistake. It seemed complicated, and sometimes when I'd turn it on and go to take a photo, it would just freeze. I couldn't take a picture or even turn it off.
Summary: The camera feels durable. Good rubber plastic construction. Pan feature is nice. However, during playback of video a noticeable intermittent buzz/hum could be heard. Might be associated with the focusing of the lense. I don't know if this is typical or just a faulty item. Daylight photo's were decent and the ability to take pictures quickly without using the multipicture function was pretty decent. Image quality doesn't compare to a digital DSLR.
After the first day in aquapark, got very foggy and broken
26 June 2013
Summary: I bought this camera and used it only for one day. Although it looks sturdy and is positioned as waterproof, after swimming in aquapark for 1 hour, the screen and the lens got foggy and the camera stopped operating. The battery compartment was well-closed - checked it several times. I like the size and the quality of the case, as well as photo and video taking, just a pity that it didn't respond to the waterproof claim.
Excerpt: Такое ощущение, что половину стоимости камеры взяли только за водонепроницаемость.
Pros: Водонепроницаемость, внешний вид.
Cons: Видео в FullHD в режиме чересстрочной развертки, движущиеся объекты рассыпаются на полосы. Зато 60 кадров в секунду. Нормальное видео получается при ярком свете, чуть в тень - и лезут пиксели. Громкий звук работы автофокуса, слышен на видео. Некорректная съемка фото в авторежиме - в помещении при включенной вспышке выставляет ISO 1600, при этом снимок шумодавится до качества фото с мобильного телефона.
