Summary: I've only had this camera about three months and will do a long term review at a later date. I bought this camera primarily to take pictures from my boat in Choctawhatchee Bay and on river canoe trips. I was looking more for splash resistance as I don't plan opn taking photos under water.
Summary: Nice point and shoot camera! This camera produces nice, clear pictures and has numerous modes to help to get your pictures looking great in every setting. The underwater feature is incredibly cool, and it take really neat pictures underwater. Also, you can "wash" your camera off.
Summary: This camera is so much fun in the water! Takes beautiful shots outside. Not that happy with zoom pictures though. But if you want a camera for water pictures this one is it!! my pictures at a water park came out crystal clear.
Summary: Excellent camera to take snorlking. I bought this just for underwater use and it was great. Clear pictures and no problem with any leakage. It also takes wonderful pictures outside of water as well. Well worth the money
Summary: Product is great for outdoor use, wonderful detail in the pictures, but I was surprised when screen changed to white on one side. The camera still works well -- do not like that I have to send to manufacturer and not deal with the people I purchased from
Summary: I became very nervous about this product after reading some of the negative reviews concerning leakage. I took a leap of faith in the good reviews though and so far haven't been disappointed. I've plopped the camera in a glass of water several times and took pictures with it while submerged.
Summary: This is my second Optio waterproof camera. It is a great point & shoot digital. As with most cameras in this price range, you will wish it could focus & shoot faster, especially since the natural reason to have this camera is for action shots at the beach. The only big negative is no viewfinder.
Summary: For the price this is a great camera. We got it and went on vacation to the lake right away. Took the camera in the water, took lots of photos and some short video. Pictures are great, video is pretty good, and it's so fun being fearless with your camera and photo taking.
Summary: I got this camera primarily for its waterproof capability; it is not my primary camera. I've had opportunities to use it for movies in the rain, in a swimming pool, etc, and the movies are more than adequate. The sound is mono and the frame rate is o.k.
Summary: Have owned this camera for about a month now and have take a few hundred pictures and at least 2 hours worth of video. Pictures are decent, but not even close to my Digital SLR. What I was amazed by was the quality of the video.
