Summary: Complete piece of trash. I only used it 3 times before it broke. I bought it to use while snorkeling, but it is very difficult to see the view finder in the water. I took it down to about 20 feet and the battery compartment leaked the batteries immediately failed and ruined the camera and destroyed my memory card. At that fairly shallow depth the lens also took on water and has a lot of condesation. on the lens.
Clear pics and it takes nice videos. It does go through batteries pretty fast

Summary: This camera worked fabulously on my vacation. Clear pics and it takes nice videos. It does go through batteries pretty fast, i bought a pack of 6 and used them all in 4 days. The camera served its purpose and allowed me to take great underwater images.
Excerpt: I was really hoping this camera would work for our needs at work but was very disappointed. In order to download the pics you have to open the battery compartment to access the port. Wow, super time consuming and the batteries fall out and roll away on you! Our shipping guys just are not coordinated enough to open the cover, plug in the cable, download what they need, chase the batteries(special type by the way), re-load them the correct way, close it back up, and charge...
Summary: I have noticed a lot of mixed reviews on this camera, and for the life of me can not understand why. This is a great camera for a tween or teen. Heck it is even perfect for adults! It works great, it's simple to use, and it's waterproof. We do a lot of water activities so that is always a requirement in cameras. Trust me you don't want to hit the rapids with anything that is not waterproof and sturdy. Short of throwing this on the ground is is quite durable!
Pretty much a waste of money if it's sunny outside

Summary: I had no problems with the battery life, however the viewing screen is impossible to see outside. The glare and dimness of the screen force you to just shoot photos and hope for the best because it is next to impossible to see whether or not the camera is even on, let alone any image that you are trying to shoot. This was an issue even when underwater on a sunny day. Pretty disappointed with this purchase.
