Excerpt: I am on my second Fujifilm Fine Pisx --- the first one I lost. It was owrking just fine - my bad. The next one was the XP50 from Overstock.com. Very bad choice. Worked for about 2 weeks. then it got so corroded that I could not download directly from the camera. I had to purchase more stuff to download the memory card to my PC. OK, that was not too bad - I can live with that. It has never worked since.
Summary: This camera was bought for my daughter who takes hikes with her class once a week and also goes on 2 over night trips. She absolutley loves this camera, she takes pictures under water (which I think is pretty cool) and whether its hot or cold this camera takes wonderful pictures. I don't think I would buy another camera besides this one ever again.
Summary: I bought this to replace my last fujifilm wp camera, which broke after 7 years of hard use. This seems to have all the features of the last one. So far it works well in snow and rain. The last one took great underwater pictures. There are a large variety of settings (snow, close-up, video, with and without flash, several underwater settings etc...) They work well in different lighting, indoors and out. I am really pleased with this replacement.
Summary: The shipping was quick, the camera came with all products included in the description. I bought the camera so my boyfriend and I could use in Las Vegas. We went hiking, to concerts, and sight seeing. The camera is fantastic! We love the 360 panorama option. The quality was great, there were issues with blurry pictures indoors with low lighting - I didnt have the flash on, since it was a concert, so it is a non-issue otherwise.
Summary: if you're looking for a cam this is it, no matter what you do for the money . you cant beat it, i read all the feedback and almost didn't buy this. but i said try it. if its not what you like send it bed, but i have tried to run the battery down and two days with it 300 photos latter still full battery..
Summary: I took some amazing underwater photos of fish in Hawaii. However, water did infiltrate the camera when I threw it to my buddy that was about 20 feet below me. I wanted him to take a picture of me jumping off Black Rock. The impact got water inside the waterproof shell.
Summary: This camera works pretty good in natural light, and obviously it's awesome that it works underwater, but what I was disappointed with was its lack of versatility. I was expecting for this camera to be my new point-and-shoot; a camera that I could use for all occasions. I quickly realized, however, that it does not have a flash capability.
