Summary: I've had this camera for five years. It's survived many drops & bangs, underwater excursions & sudden rain. The quality of the photos is not necessarily top notch for things like landscapes, but I have taken some great pictures with it, so I think it depends on your picture taking skills.
Summary: The W10 is a great Camera, we own 2 of them, my son dropped and broke the flash of our 1st one....so we bought another one. We take alot of photos at sporting events. It is great for those. Some of the indoor photos are grainy. But if there is light the indoors are nice too.
Summary: This is an amazing camera with long lasting battery power, underwater photos come out great, as do all other photos. It has a powerful flash and is so easy to operate! The Zoom hss no external moving parts, so no problems with water, the elements, etc.
Summary: I've left this thing out in zero degree weather all day taking time lapse of a blizzard and still keeps on working! Also I have left it out in the rain for some time lapse. The thing just keeps on ticking! I can leave it out for 1 pic per minute without recharging for a 13 hour period!
Summary: I bought this camera for my many snorkeling trips worldwide. The first trip I took it on was the Maldives and I was really excited to get some great underwater shots. I took it out on the reef in fairly calm conditions and the camera failed and never would turn back on.
Summary: I bought this camera two years ago as an alternate camera to take along in my purse or when riding horse back. My main camera is a Canon EOS D-60. I have two Pentax 35 mm that I used before digital, and I really liked them, so I figured this would be a quality camera.. boy was I wrong.
Summary: This is my second one of this camera. (First one got waterlogged because I forgot to lock the battery compartment and left it in the water a few minutes longer than I was supposed to.) The picture quality isn't as high as that of my regular digital cameras, but I guess you can't have it all.
Takes great pictures........maybe a bit sensitive to damage

Summary: I've had this camera for about a year and a half. While it worked right it was a great camera. Recently the backlight quit working while in camera mode. It still took fantastic pictures but you could not see your subject in the screen on the back (well you could see it but it wasn't lit up).
