Excerpt: I blog on a newspaper website about walking around my small city in all weathers, and love to have photos to illustrate the blog. On the same subject, I'm also on Twitter and like to post photos there. This little camera is perfect: light, easy to use and, indeed, "tough." It's also an attractive little object.
Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Small / Compact
Excerpt: Purchased camera for a trip to the Caribbean knowing we would be near the sand and in the water. Wanted something that could take the abuse, offer ease of use, small, lightweight, and provide decent quality pictures. Pictures taken underwater came out well especially for the price range of this camera - not National Geographic quality but much more superior to disposable cameras.
Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Great Resolution, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
Summary: Great value for the money! When I read reviews on this product, I was a bit nervous about taking the camera into salt-water situations. However, I was pleasantly surprised to see this camera hold up to varying conditions without leaking. This camera easily survived the Great Barrier Reef (warm salt water) and the bays of New Zealand (COLD salt water conditions) without incident.
Summary: I really like this camera. I would actually give it 4.5 stars, but that wasn't an option, so I went with 4. I bought it mainly for underwater purposes, as I already have a Panasonic Lumix for above-water (5 stars for that one!). That being said, I loved the Advanced Underwater mode. The colors were true, and not greened out. Beach mode though (which the manual says to use for up to 10 ft underwater) was not as impressive when underwater.

Summary: Before I bought this camera I read in one review that the biggest problem is the fogging of the viewfinder when wet. That also proves true for me. It's quite annoying when you're trying to take pictures and they come out foggy. The camera does take great videos and underwater pics though. It fell a few times with my kids but it's shockproof so I don't have to panic. It's a good camera.
Summary: We took this camera to Grand Cayman and used it on the beach and in the water. It held up to snorkeling in salt water just fine, though I only went down about 6 ft. I am also pretty happy with the picture quality as a whole. It's not as good as an SLR, but it's pretty good for a point and shoot. It reacts quickly and I can take pictures pretty rapidly if I want.
