What a waste, who would limit a waterproof camera to only ...

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.
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...
Excerpt: This camera was nearly completely worthless. While daylight pictures were fine, flash photos were washed out to the point of being completely useless. I don't know if this was just because I got a lemon (which would certainly mean poor quality control) or if the design itself is bad. Either way I returned it for a refund and got a Nikon at Best Buy. I do have to say Thanks to Staples for being good about the return and not giving me a hard time over it.
Summary: It eats batteries like crazy, the flash takes forever to charge between photos, and the picture quality is very poor. I use it once for an hour, took it back home, and bought a Kodak. Piece of Junk! I am giving it to my kids to play with, though they won't get much use out of it with as fast as it goes through batteries.
Summary: Received the camera it was picture perfect not a mark on it. But it did not work on my vacation. Put a memory card in it went through the steps for the camera to program it. Thought it was working on cruise so I carried it every where took hundreds of pictures and not one saved on the memory card. Unfortunately did not know this until I returned from trip and proceeded to try downloading them and it was empty.

Summary: I purchased this camera for a snorkeling trip. not only are the photos terrible underwater photos but on land they were soft and bad.I called tech support but got no where. Techs arein India, because none of the customer reps spoke English or understood it well enough to carry on a "conversation" I WOULD LIKE TO RECOMMEND A FUJI QUICK SHOT I BOUGHT TO REPLACETHIS PIECE OF *******.
