Works ok in water, horrible picture quality, terrible in anything other than very bright light

apabbott, Amazon

  • Summary: The underwater feature has worked ok for us, although I see dozens of complaints from other reviewers about that issue. My bone to pick with this camera is the terrible, almost unusable picture quality. I understand that this is not a $1600 camera, but with today's advances in digital cameras, you think you could at least get picture quality that is as good, if not better, than a $30 cell phone or a disposable film camera.

Broke the 2nd Time I Used It

Mary Austin-Keller, Amazon
28 November 2012
  • Summary: So I read the reviews saying it broke the first or second time people used it and I thought it was just people didn't follow the directions. Nope. Broke on me the second time. I first tested it in the surf in San Diego and no problems. It was ready for Hawaii. I get to Hawaii and it works the first time, but starts acting funny midway through the snorkeling trip. Then the next day I go out in the water and it's not working at all, i can see water behind the screen.

It's okay, but has issues.

Anthony Burokas, Amazon
19 October 2012
  • Summary: I have to admit, that I wanted to like this camera. It was to replace my old and now, not working, Olympus SW720- a precursor to the "tough" cameras. That camera went through a lot and kept working, till the screen went white for no apparent reason, but I digress... This camera is thin & light. It has a 4x zoom (longer than my old cam). It shoots HD video (not SD like my old cam). It doesn't have a lens cover to jam up on sand, like my old cam. More resolution.

Disappointed in optical quality of pics

MT "Mythman", Amazon
30 August 2012
  • Summary: Got this camera to replace a Pentax Optio W-30 I had used for years while kayak fishing. I am very disappointed in the quality of the pictures while the camera is on Auto. Way too dark or too light, blurred pictures and just generally not the quality I am use to. I am trying to compensate for this by using the manual adjustments. We shall see......................it is so bad, I am looking at other cameras, already.

Faulty - Poor Image Quality

botw, Amazon
7 June 2012
  • Summary: I really wanted to like this camera, which I picked up for a beach, pool, kids type point and shoot. Unfortunately, the image quality was mediocre at best, with soft images, lots of flare, poor color rendition, and little ability to control camera settings. My copy also had some crazy lines going through the video. Obviously, I may have had a faulty unit (I returned it), but you should not buy this expecting it to produce images as nice as a typical point and shoot.
