Summary: I bought this for traveling. i wanted something I could take anywhere and this was perfect. I took it the beach with no problems in the water, out in cold temperatures and more. When I bought it was at a great price, its probably cheaper now which is even better.
Summary: Please see other review for accessories. I truly cannot say enough for this camera. It went to Afghanistan with the Marines, came back battered, but still working. It matched the claims made for it.
Summary: Took this camera to Cozumel a few years ago. I'm not a professional or even experienced amateur when it comes to photography, particularly underwater photography. This camera was really easy to use.
Summary: Picture quality is good enough we could use it as our normal camera. It has survived multiple falls, salt water and all kinds of other abuse. Be sure to have extra batteries though, as they die quickly.
