Excerpt: This is a fantastic waterproof and shockproof camera option. I love being able to take it on vacation or to the pool and not worry about it getting damaged if water spalshes or if I want to take pictures in the water. I also have a small child who seems interested in taking pictures, and I love that I can let him use this without worrying that it will shatter when he drops it.
Excerpt: Was looking for a small camera for when my larger camera was not convenient. Purchased it during a black friday sale, so it was a good price for what it does. The pictures are good, and it also takes video. I love that it is waterproof and shockproof, even though I have not dropped it, or have had the chance to use it underwater. I will be going on a cruise this summer, so looking forward to that option.
Summary: I brought this camera slightly apprehensive. I have now finally been able to put it into good use when I went snorkeling in Sharm. The under water still and video are great!!! So buy this product!!!!
Summary: Had this as a cheap option for my teenage daughter for a week's snorkelling in Egypt and she had a great time with it. She took it underwater everyday and had some very good results. For the price we paid we were not expecting great quality and were dubious of the waterproof claims but it did what it said on the tin: very good pictures and no leaking. We didn't use any of the easyshare options just used it to point and click underwater and above each day.
Summary: This camera is very good in that it: doesn't use the batteries up too fast still works after going in a pool (my previous 'underwater' camera did not!) takes very good videos is orange. The less good points are: the interface with the computer - I found it annoying when it worked (I'd rather do it manually), then it stopped working and now I have to take the memory chip out to download pictures the instructions did not cover all of the camera's functions, and I am still...
Summary: Bought the camera for a trip to Maldives for the underwater shots. First camera was tested in our kitchen sink - and it leaked - returned it - and the replacement so far has been great. We did find that the batteries ran out quite quickly (around 1 1.2hrs = 2 snorkeling trips). The picture quality has been variable - but I think this was down to light conditions rather than the camera to be honest.
Summary: Having read the reviews I was a little sceptical about this camera, but liked the price, and only really wanted something to play with while we were on holiday in Makadi Bay, Egypt, with lots of coral reefs to play with. The Easyshare Sport far exceeded my expectations, both as an underwater camera and for shooting video clips.
Summary: I am really impressed by this camera. Yes, it's basic, with no optical zoom, but one advantage is that you can take a quick picture with negligible shutter lag. I took it to Barbados and got quite a few shots I'd have missed with my other camera. The quality was good for a cheap camera. Don't expect SLR results, and you'll be more than happy. It took several pictures under difficult lighting conditions with acceptable results.
Summary: I got this camera for my sister for her birthday, we needed a camera that had to be strong and waterproof as she is only 9 years old. She also wanted a bright red one, this is the camera we decided to buy because it's waterproof, strong and red! You can record videos, but when playing them back on the camera you can not hear the sound as it is waterproof and water would get in the speaker.
Summary: Took this camera to Maldives especially for underwater photography at a depth of 1 metre. Used the video feature most as it was such good quality. Filmed a turtle for 5 mins in video and whale shark for 3 x 5 mins. When downloaded onto computer on return home was amazed at the quality of picture and sound. Drawback would have to be the 2 x AA batteries needed but I took 6 spares and used them all.
