Summary: I purchased the camera not expecting too much, based upon other reviews I had read, but not willing to go up to the next price bracket. I was just looking for something to use in place of disposable underwater camera. The camera is remarkably easy to use, and the picture quality blew me away. My only complaints so far is that the LCD screen is poor resolution and poorly lit, and the camera is slow to take a photo after pushing the shutter button.
Summary: I used the camera on a recent trip to Cozumel. The camera worked quite well, but is a little hard on batteries. I recommend either rechargable or a good supply of disposable batteries. The camera is quite easy to use both underwater and on land. Good quality pictures for the price. Good camera for the price.
Summary: My Aqua-Snappy died and I wanted to be all-digital on my scuba trip to Bonaire. I liked that I could take more than 36 pictures at a time underwater, but the click-to-capture time is poor, especially as you go deeper and the light is more marginal. That is annoying when the fish/eel/turtle doesn't want to stick around for a portrait. The housing is nice, but I had weird problems between the thin camera strap and housing. It should just drop in, right?
Summary: Great beginner's camera, I own a canon and this was my second camera, I got it for test as the price was inviting, compairing to my Canon, Intova wasn't on the same level, the picture quality is ok but not excellent as Canon, you need to buy the flash set if you're going deep as the flash with the housing is useless,you'll get 1/3 of the pic with shade,due to the plastic which is screening a part of the flash beam...
Summary: The case appears to be very well made and we used it on a Hawaiian trip down to about 20 feet. The camera takes ok pictures, but has very little low light sensitivity and wouldn't focus in a poorly lit room. Underwater it was impossible to see the screen so it was a point and shoot event. The focusing problem was evident under water so only some of the pics turned out, when we hit the target.
Pros: Easy To Use, Good Depth Range, Water-tight Seals
