Summary: Great all around camera! We used if for snorkeling in the ocean and capture great photos and video. Also used on land, great pictures. Just order the accessories that is comes with. Could use more memory only thing.
Summary: great durable little camera. small and compact easy to travel with. has picture taking settings that are neat. took on my honeymoon 7 day cruise to cabo and PV and it was find in the ocean/beach/pool. got sand on it and soaked it after use with no problems. dropped it a few times too and no issues. the battery also lasts a long time, i really didn't charge it the whole time we were vacationing.
Summary: I bought this for a trip to hawaii because I wanted a camera to take on the boat tours and snorkeling. For the price, this camera is wonderful. Pictures are clear, especially underwater! I got great snorkeling pics, was able to take it with me climbing into caves without fear of it breaking when it bumped the cave walls. I even started using this camera for just regular everyday pics now - underwater or not.
Summary: Great easy to use camera. Takes excellent pictures and works great under water w/o problems. The only negative for me is that when I set it to take sequential pictures, it goes back to single shots when the camera is turned off. So I need to reset it every time. I had an earlier model that would stay on sequential pictures unless I changed it. But it's a great camera.
Summary: I purchased this to replace a previous Olympus model of waterproof camera for a trip to the USVI. The keys and buttons are different from my previous model, but once i figured out to use it, I was satisfied. It spent as much time in the water as I did.....and that included both heavy salt water as well as pool water.
It has worked out great. We have taken pictures while snorkeling and taking ...

Summary: We bought this because we wanted a camera that was rugged and waterproof. It has worked out great. We have taken pictures while snorkeling and taking it kayaking. There is a lag between pictures but it's not a big deal. It's not a $500 camera.
