Summary: Took some good pictures (not great,but I didnt pay much). I have some really nice pictures from snorkeling! Would have given it a 4 star! However, the camera stopped functioning after one use when I tried to trade out the batteries. So far the seller wont help me and Nikon wont either, even though I used it only one time.
A great camera if you know what it is (and isn't).

Summary: Purchased this for a 9 year old girl who is just starting to explore photography. This has been the perfect camera for her. It is fairly rugged and has so far brushed off multiple drops and has spent planty of time in the river and swimming pools. The menu is very basic. Great for a child but probably too limited for anyone with even the slightest familiarity with camera settings.
Excerpt: I bought this for my son, who likes to take pictures when we are just out and about or traveling. It seems like it'll hold up to him using it and carrying it around. It's very easy to use and the menus are quite intuitive. My one annoyance is that I can't figure out how to permanently turn off the flash - or at least, how to keep it off even when turning the camera off and on. The flash defaults to being on, which is a pain.

Summary: Mannn...I bought this because I was going to Jamaica and I needed a camera that could go in the water with me. It doesn't come with a memory card so I figured i could get at least 10 pictures before it was full right? NOT! 3 pictures and the camera was full. I ended up using my cellphone to capture all my pictures. it was a waste. i'm going to buy a memory card and see if it does any better.
Summary: Do not buy this camera. I shopped around and read reviews for a long time before deciding on this one. I took it on a seven day cruise and used it in the ocean maybe two times before it quit turning on and off. It was not functional by the end of our trip. The battery cover gets stuck and I haven't been able to use it since. Not worth the money. The pictures were ok but like I said, out of two uses it was not worth it.
Summary: I had this camera for a year and It worked for the most part. The flash would work during the day but at night I could never get it to work. I used it underwater snorkeling in Jamaica and it worked good. I took it to Cancun and I dropped it from about 3 feet and the screen went black and hasn't worked since. it says shock proof on the front of the camera. I was very upset that for my whole trip in Mexico I had no camera.
