Worked great...until it stopped.

  • Summary: Bought this for a trip to the western Pacific. It worked well, and I got some great snorkeling pictures. It's not my everyday camera; I use it sporadically when I need the waterproof feature. The next year, I went to use it again, and it wouldn't turn on. Total bummer.

A fine compact waterproof camera

  • Summary: I bought this camera a couple years ago so I can report with confidence that it lasts, works as advertised (i.e., under water!) and more than meets my recreational fishing photographic needs. There are a couple of things to watch out for, however.

Great Water Camera

  • Summary: This camera is a real workhorse. Tough. Absolutely waterproof. Takes good underwater pics and in downpour. Good pics in bright sunlight. Have taken everywhere with me...swimming, kayaking, hiking, biking, etc. Very reliable and easy to use.

2+ years and still working great

KSM in NYC, Amazon

  • Summary: I've taken this camera to the beach and snorkeling at least 20 times, as well as using it day to day, and its still working great. I love being able to take digital photos in the pool and ocean, and it seems fairly resilient to sand. It takes really nice quality underwater photos and videos.

  • Summary: This was my first "Rugged / waterproof" camera. I purchased this camera specifically for using when camping/ hiking/ canoeing. I purchased extra batteries, protective skin case (PESOW60C), LCD Invisible Shield, Floating wrist strap, and 2 crucial 8Gb memory cards in June of 09.
  • Pros: I have not had to worry about keeping it dry or dust free. It has survived being left in a car in 90 degree weather with the window rolled up for 8hrs. As well as being sat on, dropped from small heights, set down on counters & rocks none to gently. Like the post office it has delivered no matter...
  • Cons: I don't like the fact that I can not zoom in and out when taking video. You have to set the depth to where you want it and then start taking the video., I do not use the High def video due to the low frame rate., I'm afraid to use it underwater due to other reviews of it not to survive this as we...

  • Summary: This has been a great camera. Small and has stood up to dirt, water and had use. The optional rubber skin helps.
  • Pros: Macro shots, form factor and image quality compared to its peers.
  • Cons: Weaknesses are not at the camera as much as the type. One needs to know the modes and watch the ISO settings. I limit ISO at 400 and use green button mode to go higher in a hurry to make sure I don't have too much grain. Battery life is not great.

Great for outdoors...

Labrynth "Labrynth", Amazon

  • Summary: Seeing as how this is a waterproof camera I'd say they probably really meant for it to be used more in the outdoor environment. This pics it takes then are typically excellent quality. Indoors or lower light however, suck. They are grainy, fuzzy and, well, crap.

Handy portable water proof camera but low picture quality

P. Shrestha "ps_artist", Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this camera a year ago and have taken in few outdoor trips. It's a handy waterproof camera. I noticed few water condensation in inner side of display screen when I used in sea water (1/2 feet deep beach area) for longer than 2 hours but it went away after a day and still working fine.
