The Camera is not really shock proof, but works well underwater

Summary: The camera is not that tough. My daughter dropped it on a wooden floor from 3 feet high and the camera stopped working. Quality of lens and zoom is not great. Needs improvement. The next versions may be better
Summary: First, I think the quality of pictures, ease of use, size of camera are top notch. My problem was with the "security strap" - its really poor. The first time I took the camera out in the water to use it and attached it to my wrist, the security strap broke off.
Summary: I have worked with smaller companies that would work on fixing a problem and that was Newegg 7 years ago.
Pros: The camera is great in every way
Cons: The shipping was a fiasco, normally it takes 1 day to get delivered using UPS and 2 days by US mail but this time it to me 6 days and went 1200 miles out of it’s way. I know things happen but Newegg people that answer the phone either has no training or no initiative to check on a problem. All th...
Summary: I bought this camera just over a month ago and it takes great pictures. No blur when taking action pictures and also the quality/clarity of the underwater pictures is great. Problem is, I've only had the camera for a month and it already isn't working.
Summary: So far it seems sturdy and it is nice and compact, but it takes a long time between pictures. Once you take a picture, it won't be ready to take another for about a full five seconds. That seems like a pretty long time.
Summary: It works well overall but has a problem in flash conditions and sunlight. If facing the sun I have to shield the lense cover (fixed) with my hand, otherwise you get bad artifacts. In flash pictures I get a lot of snow and artifacts.
Summary: "Adequate for what it is" - well, what is it? It's a very low cost, you might even say near-disposable, underwater camera. Read through the reviews for any underwater camera and you will find complaints about water leakage, so none of these products are infallible.
Summary: I bought this camera for 2 days this is my first impression on this camera: The picture quality is poor, but it is expected at its price. The good thing is that this is a 16 MP camera, so if you are not making a poster print, the quality is still ok; however, you will need a lot of storage space...
