Summary: I read several reviews before buying it about it getting water in it. I still bought it. I had it in my hand as I was swimming in a river. I climbed on to a rock to take some photos but every time I turned it on, it kept telling my battery door was open. It wasn't open. I triple checked.
Summary: I already have one and am pretty good with using it ; problem ? I have two harleys and one camera ..... so am always forgetting the camera. Solution find and purchase a 5 year old camera in good shape ....found one from Hawaii used once ?!?!?!?!?!?
Summary: I have used this camera on dozen of kayak-trips, dangling from its lanyard on my life-vest, since I bought it in 2008 and it has not shown any weaknesses. Never any issues with water-leakage or from rough care. I also find battery-life to be good.
Summary: I bought the camera with the hope that it would still have the ability to remain waterproof to some extent. I used it one day and it got wet, but I did not keep it submerged for long or go deeper then a couple of feet.
