Excellent picture and video quality for such a small package

Summary: Took this little gem to Mexico, kept it in my shorts pocket the entire time. I went swimming many times, and could pull it out to take pictures and/or video at will. Turns on and is ready to shoot quickly. Excellent picture and video quality for such a small package. Battery life could be better, but I always had a spare fully charged and close at hand. Images are untouched, taken on automatic settings.
Summary: I've had this camera for over a year and shot thousands of images... I LOVE it!! It is fantastic in low light (indoors)... The low light pics are a little grainy but much better than snapshot quality... If you're looking for an all around, do it all camera that is pretty much everything proof, this is a good choice. But!!! It's not going to replace a $1000 SLR with interchangeable lenses ... Don't expect studio quality images...
Summary: I just used this camera on our cruise to snorkel in Ochos Rios, Jamaica; Grand Cayman, Cozumel, Mexico and a short trip to the reefs in Key Largo. This camera takes fantastic pictures in and out of the water. We are just thrilled with the quality of the pictures and videos we have from snorkelling and the cruise. I used the GPS for our entire 11 day trip and it drained batteries pretty quick. Luckily I had purchased 2 spare batteries before we left so we had no problems.
Camera worked great!! Bought it just before trip to Belize ...

Summary: Camera worked great !! Bought it just before trip to Belize and snorkeling the barrier reef. Of course I should have gotten it sooner to learn how to use it, but.... I saw lots of reviews at either end of the scale, same as most of these cameras, and just decided to get this one. Glad I did. Spent LOTS of time under water with no problems. Using the "Underwater" selection in the Scene mode gave great color balance.
Summary: It's great having a waterproof camera on vacation...never having to worry about getting it wet. This camera is very fast to power on and be able to take pictures. Image quality is great. The extras in this package (flating wrist strap, extra battery, etc) are well worth the extra few dollars. I would recommend this camera to anyone.
