Summary: Got the camera for a wedding shower and love it! Didn't figure out how to toggle between video and still until about my 6th dive and never did find that in the instruction manual (skimmed it briefly).

Summary: I recently bought this camera at a local dive shop and was able to use it on a dive and a couple snorkel trips in Hawaii.
Previously, I was using an underwater camera bag (~$30) with a Sony DSC-V1 (5MP pro-sumer) to take snorkeling photos. I was able to get some great photos in the process.
