Summary: I love this camera! It is just as advertised - waterproof and shatter proof. It also takes great pictures and video. This is one of my favorite things I own - I have even lent if to my dad who wanted to take pictures on a fishing trip to Iceland. Great camera and multi-functional!
Summary: Wow, this camera is a total workhorse. We've had it now for several years and it has been phenomenal. I've taken it through the desert, mountains, and even under water and it still takes fantastic photos. Pros: - Simple to use menu - Great photos - Seems like it's everything proof. Amazingly durable - Compact size - Light weight Cons: - None I can't really complain, it does the job every time.
Summary: For 5 years this camera has delivered amazing quality pictures and though its internal storage may be slightly outdated now, the capability to easily switch SD cards makes that mostly a non-issue. I have dropped, kicked, drop-kicked, submerged, thrown, exposed to significantly freezing, dusty and sandy environments and yet this device has persevered in perfect working order!
Summary: Use this camera everywhere and for everything. It is great. My daughter has dropped it and we bring it in the pool the ocean, nothing is stopping it. Just need to make sure to rinse it off after a day of fun and let it air dry but great purchase overall.
Summary: I use my iPhone for most pics these days, but to be able to zoom, and more importantly, get it wet, this baby takes excellent pics, is durable, and yes, I have used it in, around and under the water successfully. For these reasons, there is still a place of a point and shoot camera in my life.
Summary: I purchased this camera about 1 ½ years ago, primarily for photos taken from a Kayak. I have shot well over 1000 pictures with this camera and I have not been disappointed with its performance. It has been in the duck blind, the pheasant field, the ocean for underwater pictures, and on the ski hill during snowstorms. It weathers everything and takes good pictures. It has been dropped, dunked, taken into salt water, and it still works like a charm.
Summary: Takes great pictures in low light. Especially at school concerts and events on stage. I like the facial recognition program. I would change the location of the on/off button as it is too easily pressed when wanting to take a picture.
Summary: This camera has worked pretty well so far. My favorite part about it is the sturdiness--can get wet or go under water, get muddy or sandy, etc. I've dropped it a couple of times on accident and it still works perfectly. I've broken OTHER cameras before just by taking them to the beach and getting a grain or two of salt in the lens, but THIS camera is built like a fortress. And it comes with really sweet photo software, with a feature for making panoramas.
Summary: First off... for all you people complaining about the AVCHD format... here's a converter that works very well if you don't have decent editing software. [...] This camera does everything it says it does. I know there is a lot of discussion about just how waterproof it is or isn't, but I gotta say... mine has worked just fine from kayaking, to pool parties, to swimming in the ocean.
Summary: I bought this camera primarily for its ruggedness and underwater capability. Did extensive research and decided this camera offered the best combination of image quality, features, and design out of all the "rugged" cameras I looked at. I already own a Nikon D40 DSLR and several lenses for the times when I need serious image quality and flexibility, but if I'm going to trade off capability for portability with a compact camera, it would be nice to get some new...
