Sent me a used camera that was broken & still had images of the previous user on it!!

kenny milne, Amazon
25 February 2014
  • Summary: I ordered this camera thinking it was new. It was used though, the screen has scratches all over it and was def not new. I tried to get the battery to work in the camera but the camera itself was defective. It would power on sometimes and other times it would not.

It leaks

Don Hartsaw, Amazon
21 December 2013
  • Summary: If you only use it in a dry area, it's great. But once you submerge it even in 6 inches of water it leaked. After about 15 minutes it died!! I do not suggest this item to anyone unless you just want to throw away your money.

Complete Failure first time in water

Rick M., Amazon
25 July 2013
  • Summary: I bought this camera to bring on our 20th Anniversery trip to Belize. It worked fine up in the rain forest, and at the shoreline. On our 6th day, we went snorkling and I bought it into the water for the first time. I never went swam below the surface, and the camera never went beyond 2-3 feet under.

They did not include the manual

Young S. Bae, Amazon
13 April 2013
  • Summary: They did not include the manual because the manuals are in Japanese and obviously these units are Japanese warranted. Not US. Big Value inc. did not specified this unlike other sellers. All the boxes had empty spaces because of missing manuals.

A disappointment

Amazon Customer, Amazon
30 March 2013
  • Summary: The look and feel of this camera is great and if that's all that matters this camera deserves 5 stars. But upload the pictures to the computer and you will find mediocre soft pictures. I can't even image printing one. Disappointed enough to give this a 1 star rating

Burst not in scene selection, missed swimming action shots

Confused at Work, Amazon
28 January 2013
  • Summary: UPDATE: While packing the camera up for return, I looked at the manual & found that it did have a burst feature - but it's not located in the scene selection like in other cameras we've used. You have to press the arrow up button to find it, along with the self-timer options too. What the heck?
