Summary: I love this camera!!! I needed a waterproof camera for a kayaking and snorkeling trip to Baja and finally settled on this one, after much research and comparison. Post-trip, I believe I made the right choice. The underwater shots and video are great! The camera worked beautifully! I was sure to rinse it with fresh water after being in salt water. Week-long shooting and with the extra batteries I bought, I never ran out of juice.
Summary: this camera is awesome. takes fabulous pictures. I bought it for the underwater capability but the many features it offers makes it an excellent all around camera too. self framed panorama pictures. don't worry about missing that fish, use the movie feature which can also capture stills and you've got it all covered. and the pet feature is cool too. no more pictures of the side of their head. it'll take the picture when your pet looks at the camera.
Summary: Bought this camera before going on a cruise. We had intended to go snorkeling but were not able to. At least I was comfortable having the camera near all the water. I would suggest that anyone who is purchasing a camera to take in the water to purchase a floating device to attach to the camera! This camera takes great pictures and the picture is taken the second you push the shutter button not a little after. Not missing as many good pictures as I had with my old camera.

Summary: I love the camera. Beautiful rich color--not tacky at all. Excellent photos for the price. I'm thrilled to have gotten it for $179. Takes great macros!!!!! Awesome in low light conditions. I definitely recommend it.
Summary: It has everything I imagined a camera could have. This pictures look like they were taken by a DLS camera. The water proof and shock proof area great bonus considering how rough I am on my gadgets. I work part time as a life guard and I take the camera with me in the water several times times. Take some time to learn how the camera works because if one are not using "Auto" one can have professional looking pictures just by tweaking the settings.
Summary: This was a last minute purchase before our trip to Maui in October 2013. Camera performed flawlessly. The panoramic feature got a heavy work out hiking the 11.2 miles from Sliding Sands to the Halemau'u trail head in the Haleakala "crater." The under water shooting delivered GREAT shots and movies while snorkeling all around Maui. No quirks. No problems. the camera just worked and delivered really good photos and video.
Summary: took this on my trip I took do south the bahamas I took this past month. My wife loves the panoramic shots its and some the other things. I loved the fact it water-proof, shock, and freeze proof.
Summary: I bought this camera after reading the reviews on it about its ruggedness and convenience. I wanted a camera/HD camcorder that would be quick to grab for vacations and family events but that was also of top quality. I have been very pleased with this little jewel!
