Good waterproof camera for the money but... eats batteries in the cold.

Summary: It's taken lots of knocks, been sailing, done surveys in the cold and wet... and 9 times out of 10 it has produced excellent results. IOf you want more flexibility than this in a waterproof camera you'd pay a lot more... It's one down side seems to be eating battery power in the cold, and that's left me having to rely on my mobile phone camera a few times...
Summary: Bought this to take underwater pictures in the Maldives and have used it about a dozen times in total while out there for Christmas 2011. Picture quality is OK but it is nearly impossible to see the screen when you use it so it becomes a bit of a lottery if you actually get any fish in the shot. Make sure you have a large supply of batteries as it chews them for breakfast.
Summary: good little camera so far but bought as a gift as thought recipient would like the easy share function as always uploading photos to Facebook etc., but downloadable software no longer available, and recipient left disappointed. do not recall the discontinuation of this function listed in the sellers blurb. feel a tad conned and could have bought cheaper camera instead..
Excerpt: The kodak easyshare sport C123 is the cheapest underwater camera that we stock at the shop I work in and the low price is the only reason we sell it (people keep asking for a cheap underwater camera and the next cheapest we do is a Panasonic at over 2 times the price). This particular camera is 12mp, with a 3x digital zoom, 2.4" LCD screen and is powered by AA batteries.
Pros: cheap, easy to use, will appeal to children
Cons: limited use, cheap and tacky looking, onl digital zoom
Excerpt: The Kodak Easyshare C123 Introduction I love going on holidays and I go at least four times a year somewhere whether it is a weekend away to a town or a nice beach. Fortunately I am no longer dependent on the school holidays and can therefore enjoy a cheap holiday. Given we were planning a beach holiday, it seemed to be a good idea to buy a waterproof camera.
Summary: its a shame it leaked through the lens because it did take good photos and video for the price. the lens would fog up and have to be cleared for reuse. but was useless underwater thereafter :( i really liked it too.
Summary: I was looking for an underwater camera to use on our family holiday in Croatia this summer, and this seemed the best option without spending too much. In the past I used disposable cameras (which have a limited number of shots, and you don't know what you've actually taken a photo of till they've been developed), and then moved onto the sealable waterproof bags for my small digital camera.
Summary: This camera is cheap even for a 12mp but being waterproof means it is at least £60-£80 below it's rivals. Having tested this camera a few parties throughout the week, it doesn't seem to be able to keep up with simulary priced cameras. Underwater this camera is brilliant and I love using it in Swimming pools. As a camera for general usage, it performs very well and can cope with colour and directional change well.
Top für Aufnahmen im und ums Wasser bei idealem Licht!

Summary: Ich hatte mir diese Kamera gekauft, da ich sie für den Badeurlaub nehmen wollte und wiel sie so griffig aussah, dass ich dachte, ich könnte sie anschließen für die sportlichen Geländetouren weiter nutzen. Fazit: Badeurlaub war super. Ganz geniale Fotos machte die da. Absolut wasserdicht. Aber als wir wieder zu Hause waren, habe ich sie ins Gelände mitgenommen. Dort wurden alle Aufnahmen farblich verfälscht und wehe, die Sonne zeigte sich nicht.
