Summary: Not as flexible from a program standpoint as I would like and some of the menu options get tedious...but hands down the least expensive, effective, entry-level camera I was able to find. The only real drawback is that if positively eats batteries...plan accordingly.
you can get some very nice underwater photos with this camera

Summary: I bought this camera for my wife who is a scuba diver. I only snorkel and I take underwater photos with a Nikon digital SLR and a Opteka underwater camera housing. We just took a Caribbean cruise where we tested the Intova by comparing its pictures with my Nikon during two snorkel trips.
Summary: Its very good in taking video shoots underwater, BUT There is a lack of time between your finger click And the camera shutter in the still camera mode. But overall its a great camera if you consider the price. 250$ for the camera and the housing.
Summary: I bought this camera a few weeks ago, and I'll have to admit, I didn't expect much. Boy was I surprised! Pros: -Great Pictures for the cost, and very compact. I actually "lost" it a couple times down on the first couple dives with it because it was so small compared to my old Olympus camera.
Summary: The price is great, but the camera is poor. The major drawbacks of the camera are: 1. That it does not allow you to automatically download pictures without removing the SD card. There is a USB port on the camera, but this is for using it as a webcam. 2.
