Good Photos but too much glare

Amazon Customer, Amazon
20 April 2014
  • Summary: I love the camera. Our last underwater camera didn't make it all the way through one dive trip when it started leaking. This is a great idea with the charging pad and the wi-fi download, we won't ever have to open the battery chamber again. My only complaint is that I had a hard time with the glare when I was on top of the water or close to the surface. Good value.

Was not told it was used

Dawn Lewis, Amazon
21 March 2014
  • Summary: The camera works great. I was able to take great pics with it and excited to use it more on my adventures. The only complaint I have is that it was used and this was not advertised in the description. There were pictures already on it when I got it. Wouldn't have bought it at the price if I knew because I could have gotten a new one for $10 more.

Good Point and Shoot - Not Waterproof

Amazon Customer, Amazon
21 March 2014
  • Summary: Used this camera snorkeling, During the first 1 hour trip took fantastic pictures and video with sound. The second trip snorkeling was the follow day again worked better than expected. Third trip took several photos above the water prior to snorkeling turned the camera off and that was the last time it worked. Followed the instructions on proper use and care. In fact I am one of those people who read the whole book prior to using.

Worthless for underwater

Ledfutt "Ledfutt", Amazon
20 March 2014
  • Summary: I bought this camera mainly for use while snorkeling. I used it quite a bit taking regular photos and it took nice pictures, certainly not good enough to warrant the price in my opinion, but decent pics. When I used it underwater as soon as it was immersed the LCD screen fogged over and stayed that way the whole time I was snorkeling.

Kind of dissappeared

Anastasia Fomenko, Amazon
21 February 2014
  • Summary: This camera attract my attention because it was very durable and practically I breakable, but unfortunately the main reason why I got was to take pictures underwater and it did not do a good job doing so. The quality if pictures under water is disappointing.

Good Camera - Sturdy

Ovieda Estrada "Insight Seeker", Amazon
20 December 2013
  • Summary: I used to own another waterproof camera that leaked the first time I used it so I was looking for something more sturdy. This seemed to fit the bill and it did work adequately the 4-5 times I used it. I was in Hawaii snorkeling so much of the water is very clear. As compared to the other camera I had, the pictures this one takes are not as clear and crisp so I'll continue to look for a better underwater camera in a reasonable price range.

I miss my WG2

Nelson Powers, Amazon
19 November 2013
  • Summary: I loved the WG 2 so I went for the 3. It is pretty much the exact same camera, but with some negatives. I did have a water breach the first time I submerged it and now am scared to get it wet... The battery doesn't last half as long as it did in the WG2 and the LCD screen makes some bright photos look washed out (they looked good on a computer). Overall I was happier with the WG2.

A lot of features and a spot of trouble.

Stephen Thoemmes "All sins are just efforts t..., Amazon
1 September 2013
  • Summary: After having to wait a month for this camera (I'm an early adopter) I was pretty excited. This camera is small and very easy to keep in your hand. The features are numerous, but as an afterthought, I could have skipped the GPS and purchased the cheaper model. The reasons why I purchased it are: weatherproofness, uses a common battery type, picture quality in a small package, a mistaken idea that my pictures would geo-tagged, and very easy macro shots.

Good camera, terrible reader

Todd Ferrante, Amazon
11 July 2013
  • Summary: Thus far the camera has been very good, but beware the card reader included in this bundle. It is the Zeikos ZE-SDR5. Check out the reviews for it. It corrupts the data on your SD card, necessitating a reformat of the card. I would give the camera 4 stars, but the card reader gets zero.
