Summary: I have purchased this camera before we went on a vacation to the Caribbean islands. I knew we would be doing lots of water activities, and the beaches and scenery being as beautiful as they are, I did not want to miss out on taking photos due to my electronics not being waterproof.

Summary: Seems cheaply made compared to my Olympics waterproof camera and the picture quality leaves sometjing to be desired but I wanted something Waterproof and took AA batteries that my daughter (age 3) could play with. This one fits the bill.
Summary: I really cannot understand some of the reviews. This camera is not meant for kids, especially 5 year olds.

Summary: Great for vacations, you don't have to worry if it rains, you can take it to the beach, easy to use. Really like it a lot. The only downfall is that you can turn off the flash or turn it automatic, but can not turn it always on. I'll give this little camera a 7 out of 10.
Excerpt: The 10MP, 1/3" CCD puts it in iphone territory, but with a f/3.3-5.9 lens its not going to do as well in low light as today's better smartphones. The S30 is a success so far as it keeps all its flaws under control.
Summary: Bought one initially in pink for my daughter before a vacation last year. Just before ordering this one my 3 year old did not drop it, but threw it and broke it, hence the purchase of this one in white. For the price, both of them were used it was no great burden to replace.
