Summary: I bought this for a vacation a few years ago. It has paid itself off many times over. This camera does not take good pictures in poorly lighted areas. This could be due to use error. After two years of use the video has light streaking through it, but that has not damaged the memories. I'm not sure I expect it to last much longer. It's had been a terrific underwater camera and has been very reliable.
Summary: We've taken this camera everywhere! It takes great underwater pictures, even in a dirty pond. We've taken pics in fish tanks, pools, oceans, ponds and in the rain. (I wish we had seen the groupon to purchase this camera at half the price.. but oh well! We already bought it.. and we love it).
Summary: I use it to take dental intra-oral photos for patients. Staff loves it because it's light and easy to use. The quality is a little bit less than the Nikon DSLR D100 with macro lens and ring flash set up I was using before but it's like comparing a Toyota Yaris to a Ferrari. I'm not implying that the camera is cheap or inadequate. Quite to the contrary, it is perfect for what I'm using it for.
Summary: This camera came to me on time, like new. It cuts on in about one second and takes really good photos, it's smaller than I thought it would be and incredibly light. The picture quality isn't perfect meaning I can't zoom in on small text and read it but photos look beautiful. Because the camera is tough I take it everywhere and the battery lasts all day. is a great camera.
Summary: I bought this camera last year for my summer trips which commonly includes water. This camera worked great for the first summer, but I was weary about the waterproof aspect of it. While on a kayaking trip, it had frequent water contact, left the display screen with lines across it, after it dried out it worked fine. The main issue I had was this last summer (year 2), I couldn't get it to turn on with fully charged batteries.
Summary: Leakage problems...my first one leaked within a couple of weeks. The replacement lasted just over a year...I guess the seal really just isn't that resilient. I swim almost daily and usually take a camera along, so i'm pretty demanding on the seals, so I guess I could forgive this if it actually took good photos. Thing is, it's actually hard to use in the water..
Summary: We really thought this camera was going to be sooo much better than our old pentax. We purchased because we needed a waterproof camera to take boating. We have a great little older pentax camera that has had no problems except is not very moisture proof because it is not designed to be. Since this older pentax had been so good for us, we wanted to purchase the same brand, just waterproof.
Summary: I have an olympus waterproof camera which seemed to have slowly lost its clarity in taking photographs. When I took it in to have it cleaned, I was told there was no guaranty that it would remain waterproof once cleaned. Since that was the purpose of the camera I decided that I needed to obtain something new and decided to get something besides an Olympus. This camera has worked extremely well. Beautiful clear pictures with good underwater color.
Summary: I am a VERY clumsy person and broke my last camera by falling on it while hiking. This one has held up very well for me. The underwater pictures are awesome and a lot of fun to take. I camp a lot and love the fact that this can go anywhere with me, including on the boat, and I have no worries as to destroying it. It is a life saver.
