Summary: This is a great little take along camera that can handle kayaking, sandy beeches and a little snorkeling. Not exactly point and shoot but if you spend a little time with the camera and enclosed booklet your pictures will turn out pretty darn good. Maybe not professional grade but the options for shooting and scenes are numerious. When set up right, the underwater pics were clear, the landscape scenes were focused perfectly and the action shots had no blur.
Summary: All features are excellent. The only complaint is that the description of the camera describe the wireless battery charging feature but the box don't come with the charging pad required to charge it that way. So if you want to charge it that way you need to buy the pad separately. Excellent camera.
Summary: I may have just gotten a lemon, but after one day at the beach and about an hour of snorkeling, and a good 10 hour wait for it to dry off before opening the case to get to the SD card, the LCD screen failed, rendering the camera pretty much useless. I know that asking for a camera that can be submerged is a big task, but it says right there "WATERPROOF," though it clearly is not.
Summary: Picture quality is terrible: grainy (not good grainy) and flat outside the water, murky and flat inside the water (I was at the Dry Tortugas, and my friend's little Nikon took MUCH clearer pictures, so it wasn't the water), which pretty much made me kick myself for not buying a disposable underwater camera instead. For some reason my zoom in/out buttons did not work at all.
Summary: This camera HAD RUINED my Europe vacation!!! We received it a few days before we depart, and it went perfectly well in our first 3 days in France. All pictures were taken on the first 3 days really nice. On the 4th day, the screen suddenly turned BLACK even we had charged the battery full on the night before. It’s worst more because it happened right on our tour day at the most amazing chateau.
