So far so good

  • Summary: Just got it in the mail, right on time. Took a couple pics and videos to test it out and everything seems clear and of quality as seen in online product reviews. Have not had the chance to test durability, so I will need to post another review if it decides to crap out underwater like some people's have. There are two buttons for lock and open on the battery door.. Maybe some have forgotten to slide the lock button on top of the close button?

  • Summary: I work outside all year around and have to take lots of photos. This camera is indestructible. It's freeze proof, crush proof, water proof, drop proof and did I say toddler proof. Can't go wrong.

Seriously great camera and great value for the features it offers.

  • Summary: This is the best point and shoot camera I have ever owned. I bought it because I did not want to lug my Sony A77 to Belize and because of it's underwater capabilities thinking I would use it for the trip and snorkeling etc. Surprise - surprise - surprise. This thing is fabulous. It has the usual auto settings as well as several specialized algorithms like indoor, low light, movies, indoor movie, bright sun etc. and also underwater movie and still shot.

  • Summary: I'ts a lie that is shockproof, or that can tolerate a fall from 2mts. I bought one, it fell from 0.5m.(2 ft) to the ground and the acrylic cover screen broke. I wrote to Beach Camera long ago asking for guarantee and they just gave me a number to follow the complaint, but to this date they didn't gave me a solution. I wrote to Ricoh, no technical service, no parts, as well. Be careful if you buy this kind of camera you wont have guarantee , parts or technical support.

  • Summary: I bought this item for my Grandaughter. She loves going underwater with it. I personally have the WG-1 and it is, by far, the best sports camera out there.
