Great value for the beginner or amateur underwater photographer

Summary: Purchased this Intova INWD-IC600 digital camera with waterproof housing as a gift for my daughter. She had an assignment for over the summer to demonstrate light and shadows for a photography class. The series of underwater photos were submitted to the State Scholastic Art contest and one of the photos were awarded a "Gold Key" award. It was delivered within three weeks and worked well.
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: 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: 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.
