Summary: So the lesson to be learned here is - buy the extended warranty... I wish I did. The first year of use I had with this camera, I was its biggest fan. I was able to take underwater photos in fresh and salt water (depths no greater than 5 or 6 feet).
Summary: This camera SUCKS!!! When I use it under water, after took 3~5 photos, it shows "Memory card error" and automatically shut down, if I restart it to take photos, it shows the error again and again!!! After used under water and dry it a while, it will works normally for a while..
Summary: I purchased this camera to use each time I go to Hawaii. Last year I did notice water inside the battery compartment. I thought it was me and did not think any more of it. Today the camera stopped working. I opened the battery compartment and there was quite a bit of water inside.
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.
Summary: I bought this camera to take on a 16 day Grand Canyon River trip. It worked great for the first few days but after it got wet a few times most of the buttons stopped working. I was able to continue taking pictures but could not zoom, change settings, or view pictures taken.
Summary: The software to utilize the camera's GPS date crashes on my HP Pavilion laptop. It can't find the internet connection. It produces an error box full of script errors which I cannot stop or recover from. The Registration part of the included software has NO problem finding the internet on my HP.
Summary: Gave this camera as a gift on a trip and did not realize it did not come with a battery. Unfortunately, we don't know how well it works because we did not have time to get a battery before the trip. Did I miss something in the description? On the plus side, camera came quickly.
Summary: I had the precursor to this camera and loved it. It was light, slim, tough, inexpensive, and worked well. This one is not light, slim, and doesn't seem to work that well. The ring of LEDs for macro is a gimmick with this lens. This is not very competitive as a water proof point and shoot.
Waterproof, but doesn't take good underwater photos.

Summary: Pro: This camera is rugged and can handle a beating. It has also maintained a good waterproof casing. This has been fun to have at a waterpark and while swimming just because I don't have to worry about it getting damaged.
