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!
Summary: Takes awesome pictures in and out of the water..not to be used as a full time camera but it was exactly what I needed on our vacation. Brought back some wonderful memories due to this camera...wholly recommend it.
Great water camera, good out-of-water one, good-enough videos
6 August 2014
Summary: The camera is great in water, taking sharp, colorful pictures. It's also good out-of-water, though like many small cameras it over-saturates the colors and sometimes it's hard to make it focus where you want it to. Also, the zoom is a bit slow for my taste. The videos are good enough for the web, and the stabilization works surprisingly well, eliminating shake. Don't think it'll replace a camcorder for your family videos, though - it's not that kind of camera.
Summary: Polaroid has been known for cameras and I truly believe they are making a comeback with the advent of this camera. First of all, the price is AMAZING! Nowadays, you can't even get a cheap Nikon point and shoot for this price. Secondly, the dual LED feature is a must given that it's great for family selfies, and also normal shots. Last but not least, buying the brand of the camera. Over the course of 5 months, I have not faced one problem at all.
