I like it just for water activities
4 February 2014
Summary: I really like the camera, light weight and the size, picture quality is good enough to travel with. Waterproof is OK but when I stepped to 10 fits underwater the camera stopped working. I recommend the camera in water sport activities but not to deep diving.
Excerpt: I was looking for a camera that I could take both kayaking and hiking and this little thing fits that model. It is great that you do not need to worry about getting it wet or droping it on the trail. It takes great photos and the only complaint that I have is that when you push the button to take a picture you have wait about a second or two before it takes the picture. This is no big deal unless you are taking action shots. Overall I am very pleased with this camera.
Excerpt: i bouht this camera for my sister last year and she was extremely impressed. it was her first camera ever so she had a fun time taking pictures ranging from the grand canyon to our young cousins. she takes it everywhere but it is light and compact. the picture quality (i've seen) is also amazing...this is a good entry level camera.
Excerpt: This camera is very unique and a little different from other cameras that are available on the market. I was attracted to the thin model and how the whole body of the camera looked. I love that the size of the camera makes it easy for me to carry in my purse or my pocket when i do not have my purse with me. The battery is long lasting, but the charge time takes a while. The touch screen was a feature that i loved about this camera.
Summary: its ok. i havent gotten it wet. i only got it for kayaking. just a point and shoot. nothing special. i would be more excited if it had a time lapse feature. macro is pretty good. seems like a decent camera. a little heavy for its size.
Summary: I bought this camera for a trip to Tahiti so that I could take underwater pictures while snorkeling and scuba diving. Since you can only go 33' deep, I ended up using it only for snorkeling, but I am very happy with the quality of this camera and with the pictures. Got some great shots of fish and other underwater creatures. I feel they are crisp and clear. I am also delighted with the number of "scenes" that you can choose, and with the 'tap' feature.
Summary: This camera delivers as promised. All land pictures very crisp and detailed. Finally had a chance for extensive underwater shooting and was not disappointed. Best camera I have ever had. The only main drawback is the video sound. It is very subpar and staticky. I thought there may be something wrong but when I looked up reviews this seemed to be a main theme. Disappointed because I do use the video quite often.
I own the older 770 & it just died after 3.5 yr of use

Summary: I owned the older 770 & it lasted 3.5 years then died. I took it in the water a good half dozen times. It did lots of cold weather hiking in ME winters, beach trips in SC to canoeing in NC. It went hiking in Yosemite & NY. Biking in through torrential rains to lounging at the park. It was a good camera. Unfortunately, it didn't take good indoor pictures though. I just thought I'd share my experience as that model camera is very similar to the newer one.
great- but be warned- they tend to leak eventually...

Summary: I owned a previous generation version of this camera- the 1030SW. I've used it extensively sailing and scuba diving. It takes great photos and is incredibly convenient, especially compared to a bulky underwater camera. However, it leaked and no longer works (about a month after the warranty ran out...). I just returned from the great barrier reef where it turns out many marine biologists own and use this camera.
