Summary: I love these cameras, i have purchased well over 100 of them for my company. they are being phased out for a newer, more expensive one and i'm very sad about that. i cant tell you how many horrible things these cameras go though and still come out working like a champ. Dropped from heights, dropped in grease, skidding across rooftops, dropped in buckets of corrosive chemicals, thrown at walls, fallen on concrete/pavement/rock/puddles more then any little camera should be...
Easy to use, great pictures, water proof too! Highly remommend.

Summary: A friend of mine had bought one for their trip to Hawaii. They took beautiful pictures under water snorkeling. We just moved to Oregon and plan to tubing and rafting this summer. I wanted a camera and for the price, this one is water proof too! Ive had it for about a month now. It takes great pictures. Once you go through all the settings and set it for the pictures you like taking , it works great. Very easy to use and I don't have to worry about it getting wet.
Summary: Got it about a month ago. Used it at a pool party, in the pool and then took it to Europe as a back up. Camera works great. Pictures have come out fabulous so far. In and out of the water. Camera keeps a charge all day - and has a super easy to use panoramic feature. For the money i paid, this camera is a winner!
Summary: My last camera like this lasted 5 years being used by children and under water all the time. Good photos and fun to use. Kids ove to see themselves swimming. This camera was dropped numerous times and still worked. It eventually goes because of the seals but got the price and 5 years of fun it was worth every penny. I got a new one when the old one failed and look forward to another 5 years of underwater fun!!
Summary: Our company does remote site installations and mechanical service, typically in the bilge of tugboats and supply vessels. Our technicians and engineers require a simple camera that is fairly tough. We've lost one too many cell phones to drops and dunks while attempting to take pictures of an area of concern. This little camera takes the place of having to pull out a cell phone. It takes good pictures, is simple and easy to use.
Summary: I was looking for an inexpensive camera that could be taken to the beach. After reading all the reviews I decided to try this one - fully realizing there were some negative reviews. We took it on vacation over Christmas. I have underwater pictures from a pool and while snorkeling. All came out terrific. Was used at the beach a lot. I was very good about rinsing the camera in fresh water after we returned - per the instructions. Have taken to the ski slopes too.
