Summary: I love that this camera is waterproof. I've taken it on a cruise with me, to water parks, white water rafting, boating, in the lake, in the pool, even when it might rain. I've also brought it places where I know it might get dirty like a 'paint 5K' because I knew I could wash it after.
Summary: This camera is great! The only thing I don't like is if your recording a video and use the zoom, it's kind of loud. Also when you're recording a video the sound quality isn't as great as other cameras I have used. Underwater though is amazing!
Summary: Saw some concerns about this Camera when I bought it. I've used it for a couple of years now while kayaking. Have carried it attached to my PFD. So it has gotten banged around some. Been under water with me more than I want to admit. Has seen chlorine pool action while practicing.
Summary: I bought this camera to take on vacation because I didn't want to bring my really expensive digital camera along. The normal "auto" setting for the camera has horrible picture quality, as other reviews said, however if you just change the setting you can eliminate this.
Summary: I bought this camera because I wanted one that I can take with me regardless of what I'll be doing. I've been able to go to the beach, rainforest, under waterfalls, as well as in the city when it's raining and I don't want to risk my DSLR.
Summary: I bought this camera just for Kayaking. It takes quality photos and is very simple to use. It does have limited range in distance which is a little disappointing. Overall it a good value but it will not be my final water camera. I need more zoom distance for all the scenic views.
Summary: Does what it's built to do. I bought this camera to take on a trip to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Park. our itenerary included lots of hiking, kayaking and just outdoor activities in general.
Summary: Overall this camera is made to be tough and take decent pictures. There are some aspects that aren't great, but overall it works well. I use it as a field camera (I have a larger digital SLR, but when I'm out in the field, I don't like to carry it).
Summary: I was attracted to this camera because it has waterproof and shock proof. I got this for my daughter and takes video of her in the swimming lesson. The videos are very useful for stroke correction. The shock proof feature is also useful for children as they tend to drop whatever they hold.
