Summary: Took it on vacation and used it underwater in the swimming pool, water got into the lens and battery compartment while being used. Then it stopped working. display window started getting dull and then stopped working altogether. apparently the water seal is not properly made. I bought the Coleman hd water proof video camera and this works perfectly in the pool and on the beaches.
Summary: I have not taken many pictures with it, yet. Particularly not under water. So I can't say anything about the quality of that. Nor whether it is really waterproof. Otherwise I like the easy big buttons. There are lots of fancy things to go into, if you want. But for being on the river or lake in a boat and not wanting to fiddle around too much, for that it seems very good.
Summary: I read this was a great camera for a younger photographer. My older daughter has a more expensive Coolpix and she learned things from her younger sister after she started using this new camera, and she was a little jealous of this camera. My only wish would be that it would not have a rechargeable battery. I do think some of its fun functions....such as making photo albums seem to take a lot of memory. We haven't tried it underwater yet.
Summary: This camera works great, I used it in the ocean on a small dive up to 20' deep without any problems. The video clarity is good if you have good lighting. Pictures are very clear in bright light, pictures and video gets grainy in low light conditions. Overall it did what I needed it to do which is take video under water.
Summary: Bought this camera for a trip to Mexico. Worked well under water while snorkeling. It does take a little longer to adjust itself while zooming in and out. Also the flash is kinda slow while taking pics at night. For less than a $100 I'm not complaining.
Summary: Got is as a gift for my GF who wanted a waterproof camera, and it's a very decent camera takes nice underwater pics and videos, Only thing I wish is that it had more effects to add o more customizable options, but for the price it's an excellent camera, +++
Summary: Camera worked fine. I sort of broke the latch button that opens to the SD and battery, but it remained closed when I went into the ocean. The quality isn't too good for above water (so i would just take photos above water with my iphone) but the underwater camera is amazing, especially the videos. Worth what I paid.
