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: 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: However, the one i bought It didn't work! When battery in place, nothing happens. Poor electronics. They had no replacements to offer. Refunded my purchase price fast. I have another one, aabout a year old, and just love it, but closure button too tight. Need another one so i can get my first one repaired without being without. Great shots, and great movies, especially under water.
Summary: We go to a dusty, muddy ATV park often. I have broken 3 cameras there due to dust & mud! I purchased this camera and have had no problems. I have never directly put it underwater but have rinsed it with bottle water & in sink to remove mud! My only con is the shoot time is a little slow!! But it has been my vacation goto camera!!
Summary: My wife and I have two of these cameras and use them mostly while on our kayaks. They fit nicely in a pocket in our life jackets and take really good pictures for it's compact size! We have not submerged the camera yet so I can't attest to it's under-water capabilities. Also, you can directly access the memory card like a hard drive from a pc through the USB cable. I highly recommend this camera!
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. i get around 200-300 photo's on a battery depending on if i'm using the flash. one big negative - the flash has a habit of reflecting off my fingers and whiting out photo's.
