It's great for outdoor and adventurous person

Excerpt: It's great for outdoor but not for indoor, it's depends with lighting.If the object is close up, it's ok.We went to Disney World and while we were lining up and waiting, I tried to take a pics.Suddenly, the camere fell from my hands.But guess what, I still can use it.No damage.
Summary: This is an OK camera but the results are disappointing. Yes it's tough and waterproof and that's why I bought it (for skiing, mountain biking etc) but you sacrfice a fair amount of image quality. See below... Also, the functionality is far less intuitive than Canon cameras, and the software is really crap. PLUS my charger doesn't work.
Pros: Well it's allegedly a rugged beast (not that I have dropped it to find out)., It's fairly small and looks nice., Adequate LCD, That's about it.
Cons: Plenty:, Serious distortion at the 'wide' setting which I think is about 38mm. Same as most compacts but it's certainly not really wide angle and distortion should not be present - and it's very pronounced., Images are soft, and very soft at the corners and edges., Images lack contrast and colour., Images are noisy., AF is slow., Functions are not intuitive and navigation is not great.

Summary: I bought this camera about four months ago in Australia (I did forget about the Australian lead though). The key reasons I bought is was because it was waterproof and shock proof. The camera does have alot of features, such as the different modes to take a picture, e.g. indoors, through a window and landscape etc. Also the fact that it is 7.1 mega pixals. It is also a slim camera.
