Summary: Slower shutter speed than I expected. Also, it leaked when I took it deeper than 6 feet on a touristy snorkel trip in Hawaii. I was pretty bummed because I missed a lot of family photos that happened later in the trip. I'm returning it as it did not live up to its claim.
Great functions, but heavy and not always picking the correct automatic setting

Summary: Good camera with all the functionality we like, especially the Wi-Fi. The drawbacks are the weight and zoom buttons that cannot be operated easily with one hand. Also, it's not always picking the correct setting.
Summary: Yes, they go underwater and sometimes they leak. Frankly, the seals are not very obvious and there is no way of silicon greasing them like on a proper waterproof enclosure. It is not surprising that some people have had problems. It seems a bit of a lottery to me whether it leaks or not.
Summary: I was very disappointed when I got this camera. But I have found that once I reduce the exposure by two clicks, it takes a reasonable pic. Don't expect DSLR quality,but as a snap camera it's good. I've tested mine in rivers, big surf and in a swimming pool.
Summary: Good camera. But few things I wasn't happy with. You can hear a whirring noise on playback of videos. Not sure if this was just my model? Also, I didn't find the picture quality that great. I took photos on a golf course on a grey day, and the pictures looked very washed out and milky. Anyway.
Summary: I bought this rather than the Olympus TG-3, which I was also considering, as it's a bit cheaper and the images posted in reviews seemed slightly better to me, e.g. colours less saturated, in particular the video quality.
Summary: While I have only just recieved the camera so I can't really review that i am rather disappointed. It would appear I have been sent a european model with instructions in every language apart from English including what is on the enclosed CD.
