Summary: I knew going it in it didn't have an SD or memory card, but tested it out at home and took almost 100 pictures on the internal memory at the highest pixel setting. I wiped out all those test pictures and went on vacation. It took about 10 pictures while on the boat out to our shark cage dive and then once we got in the water - nothing. It wouldn't work at all. We got one 3 second video and then nothing. It wouldn't take any other pictures or videos.
Summary: Well this didn't work for me. My vacation of snorkeling with pictures didn't happen. And since I was in another country. I was not going to return the camera. So I took a lost on this one. Not saying don't buy. Just make sure it works before trying to use.
Summary: The camera took great pictures in the swimming pool. When we got in the water in our SCUBA gear, it worked great as long as the camera is fairly clear. To be honest, it is a GREAT camera to send with a kid to the pool, but if you are going SCUBA diving, then invest in a better camera. It is a good camera to take with you to the beach. It will NOT get wet.
Summary: While you really can't go wrong for the price, there are much better options on the market for surprisingly affordable prices. It works quite well and takes relatively good pictures for what it is and what it costs, but does suffer from a number of drawbacks. Firstly, the internal storage is enough for about 30 pictures, which is not unexpected, but it only accommodates micro-SD cards.
Excerpt: This camera is by no means a Nikonos, but can get adequate pictures with practice. I took this as an inexpensive way to get photos on the Great Barrier Reef. The buttons are hard enough to use on land, never mind in the water. Controls are poorly labeled, the default of being in video mode rather than photo mode when turned on is a real inconvenience, as is the time-out after less than a minute if you don't re-activate or take a picture.
Pros: Large Clear LCD, Micro-sd Card, Small / Compact
Cons: Complicated Controls, Defaults To Video Mode, Hard To Activate, Hard To Use Underwater, Short Battery Life, Times Out Quickly
