Summary: This camera is awesome! I've had it for 5 years now. Still waterproof. Still takes amazing photos. Macro? Yus please. Super macro? Be still my beating heart!! Videos are higher res than my phone which rocks. Easy to charge. Easy to unload videos and photos.
Summary: I bought this camera over a year ago and we use it 5 nights a week to take before and after photos at our job sites where it is greasy and wet. I download the photos every week and charge the battery for the next week. I have not bought a new battery yet.
Summary: Incredibly rugged and water proof. It must have dropped out of my winter jacket pocket while I was kayaking, ( bailing water out of the rowboat), and by the time I realized it was gone it must have floated away ( it was in a black foam pouch/ case).
Summary: I bought this to take with my on a cruise. It did perfectly through pools and ocean. Not only did it last for the cruise, but years later it remains water tight, and it's been on several houseboat trips, including being thrown off the side of the boat. BUT!
Summary: I chose this camera,because of its lower price, and I didn't know a thing about digital cameras. This camera is very good for the lower price,and its not hard to figure out how to use,for a first time digital camera owner,thats not too interested in figuring out how to use something.
