Summary: Very disappointed in the camera's display especially when using it underwater. Could not see the display at all underwater. Missed what would have been great pictures. Maybe redesign the display so the operator can adjust the screen brightness.
guy is right that you cannot see what you are taking a picture of when in sunlight--just hope for best.

Summary: Yes, I agree. I returned it because I went thru 8 new batteries in 4 hrs.------ unacceptable. Also, guy is right that you cannot see what you are taking a picture of when in sunlight--just hope for best.
Summary: Battery life is horrible. They say the battery should last for 2 hours but I have had the battery drain in less than 10 minutes. I wanted this for beach photos but it dies just as is things get going. The camera may be inexpensive but I have paid as much again in batteries. Get a camera with rechargeable batteries.
Summary: Do yourself a favor and spend the extra money to buy something better. The flash has to charge, and the battery life, even using high storage rechargeables, is horrible. But, the camera does work.
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.
Summary: I bought this camera to take on a cruise to the Bahamas. We were celebrating my niece's 19th bday and I had paid for her and my daughter to swim with the dolphins. I wanted a waterproof camera for our trip. I wasn't worried about submersing it. I just didn't want a camera that would get ruined if it got wet. The camera NEVER MADE IT OFF THE SHIP.
