Summary: I have owned this camera for years. It goes everywhere with me. It has been rained on, snowed on, left in the freezing temps, dropped to the ground, all kinds of abuse. It just keeps working. It still has the original battery. I use it at wok and at home. I have left it the car's glove box in summer and winter temps. It just keeps on working. You can't beat this with a stick. Best camera I have ever bought. The picture quality is very good and the video is good also.
Summary: I am 6' 6" tall and weigh over 250 lbs. and am pretty clumsy. I destroy most things. . . Not because I want to, because things just aren't made to hold up to me. This Camera IS : ) AND, it takes very good pics. I take it with me EVERYWHERE. I have dropped it and kicked it and bounced it across parking lots and on the beach and down the stairs. I have left it in my car in the dead of summer and the dead of winter. If you want or NEED a "tough" camera...
Summary: Previously bought this at full price about 3 years ago and have used underwater, salt water, and all kinds of outdoors. So worth the investment. Very easy to open and close, put batteries or memory card in, and upload pictures. Lot of features I haven't used. For the most part, if you need a durable camera, want to go outdoors, underwater it is highly recommended. The video is great too(which doesn't come on most comparable waterproof cameras).
Summary: I bought this camera for a vacation in the Dominican Rep. We used it at the beach, pool, zip lining and snorkeling. It took a few drops and lots of water and worked great the whole tome. it takes good pics and is easy to use. The video is good too, even underwater.
