Summary: I bought this in 2009 for a dive trip and so far it's survived about 25 dives to up to 130 feet. Using any of the options under water is difficult but not usually necessary. The zoom, power and shutter buttons are easy to use however. Focusing is difficult because it requires pushing the shutter button half-way and holding it there until the picture is focused, which is tricky when it's in a case.

Summary: This was my first scuba dive camera as I started my hooby, looking back at it the picture quality is blah, and underwater I could not see the screen or use any of the buttons. Buy a better camera. now i have to upgrade to get a better picture and better functioning camera.
Summary: Length:: 2:05 Mins I got the camera package about 2 years ago and it does everything with me. This is just a short run so you can see it works. I used a 2G memory card. Picture quality is not super but good and video run times depend more on the batteries. Use the 4x or 8x and your set. Diving you will find it easy to handle but hard to slip out of a BC pocket. Skiing it did well. I should just make mounts for it.
Summary: This camera is fantastic for it's size, quality of pictures, ease of use and price. Originally bought a the smaller Intova and it had great video. Up graded to the IC 600, love the water prof case. The macro picture taking is very good but you have to find the right settings and have a lot of patients. The video I found wasn't as good as the smaller Intova. All of my dive buddies have these elaborate cameras with strobes...
Summary: When I originally purchased this camera to replace an aged 35mm for a trip to the Philipines all I was trying to do was get some souvineer shots for my vacation. I was impressed with the quality of the images and the construction of the case with no leaks to 120 feet. Some things that I do not like are Very slow response time between taking the picture and the actual capture, the relatively poor battery life, and the high cost of the red filter.
Summary: I bought this camera over a year ago and have photographed over 10 dives, probably 500 pictures. It was one of the cheapest cameras I saw for fairly deep underwater photos so I thought I'd give it a shot as a first underwater camera. Overall, this camera has exceeded my expectations. Couple of specific points: 1.
Summary: Another vote for this being a good camera for the price. It has a bit of a lag time between when you press the button and the shutter opens and closes so this resulted in many blurry photos early-on. Now that we have more of the hang of it, our photos have improved. The flash isn't particularly strong so photos tend to be quite blue/a bit dark underwater.
Summary: Purchased this camera in the Fall of 2008 for our 25th Anniversary cruised to Tahiti. I tried a smaller, more expensive camera (don't remember the name - it was a little yellow box) at home taking regular pics and they were horrible. Purchased this online, tested the picture quality and ease of use prior to the trip and felt confident it would take good pics. I was not disappointed.
Summary: I read all the reviews of the camera on Amazon before purchasing it. Some reviews weren't as enthusiastic as others but overall they were mostly good, which encouraged me to purchase this camera. What an incredible surprise! We took photos in and out of the water in Maui and Oahu and everyone turned out very well. The photos were clear, great color, and in focus. We just wanted a little camera to take some underwater shots with but were thrilled with every photo we got.
Summary: Takes great pictures, PERFECT for vacations! Waterproof housing works great, took it to Belize and Costa Maya snorkeled for many days and the pictured came out great, and when on the beach I left it in the case and didn't wory about sand getting in it, just rinsed real well in fresh water before I opened the case. I used upgraded rechargeables and used a fast SD card. Great for what I intended it for.
