Summary: I bought this camera many years ago. It has been in the ocean several times. I love the videos and still shots that we have taken with this camera. The battery door does jammed every now and then. I think I probably leave it closed too long after water fun vacations.
Summary: I use it for snowboarding and its great. I got it for less than any of the action cams around so its great for the price. I've dropped it in the snow and in water and its fine. I wouldn't risk it diving with it though. I bought a cheap water case for it and its great.
Summary: First thing I wanna say, I live in Rockawy, NY. Which means beach and pool all summer long. All day long. I had the first version of this, and this one. I took them everywhere, I never had issues with the photos or anything.
Summary: short and sweet. it takes decent pictures. the auto scene recognition works 90% of the time. It does a really good job at face recognition. battery life is ok but play it safe and have a spare with you if you plan on taking lots of photo's.
Summary: I had an XP10 which would not turn-on anymore. The new XP50 is easy to use and takes decent picture in the daylight. The nighttime and indoor pictures are ok but nothing spectacular compared to my wife Canon. I got the XP50 for outdoor use especially the water.
Lives up to promises, perfect if this isn't your "primary" camera...

Summary: Length:: 0:10 Mins I do want to add that expectations from this camera make a huge difference on how satisfied you will be with the performance. It really is a matter of making the right comparison of apples to apples.
Summary: I purchased this camera for my girlfriend after the compartment doors her last waterproof camera (kodak sport) became extremely difficult to open and close. We took it on a 2 week adventure to Puerto Rico, St. Thomas and St. John.
