Summary: While the ruggedness of this camera is great, the photo quality is lacking. Underwater photos come out unfocused and unclear, even in extremely clear water. It's a little disappointing, but at this price, it's a good buy. Non-underwater photos come out as you'd expect - maybe a little yellow-tinted and grainy. However if you spend just a little more, you might be able to find a better camera and save those memories in crystal clear definition!
Summary: It is a fairly easy camera to use and the clarity of pictures and video is just super. I took underwater videos with it and they came out very nice. However, after using it 3 times for short duration's, the display suddenly went berserk in the standby mode. I could not turn the camera off and had to remove the battery to do so. After re installing the battery, it would not turn on at all. I contacted the seller and they are replacing it without any difficulty on my part.
Summary: Camera is waterproof, but fogs up during use. I was disappointed with the quality of photos underwater. It does not have a movie mode. It does have a few other modes that are helpful, but for underwater shots, go pro is much better.
The picture quality was very good when they were printed out

Summary: I bought this for my 11 year old daughter. She loves it. As soon as summertime came it was int the pool and on the beach with her every time she went swimming. The picture quality was very good when they were printed out.
Summary: I took maybe 30 pictures which were good quality as far as sharpness and clarity, brightness a little higher than I liked, but good quality overall. HOWEVER, of those pictures maybe 3-4 involved getting wet and the screen went black and no more pics on the memory card. And the door was shut properly and securely as instructed. I will be trying to return for a full refund and hope I get somewhere with this.
Summary: I read the negative reviews before I bought this camera and thought to myself, "I'll take extra care of this camera. I'm sure those who wrote reviews didn't follow the proper handling instructions. It's a Sony, so it should be a good product." I should have stuck with my gut and not purchased it. I even read through all the manual to ensure I don't make any errors the other buyers may have had. First day I used it (though not for a long time), it worked fine, no issues.
THIS CAMERA AND COMPANY IS A COMPLETE WASTE OF TIME!

Summary: I bought this camera thinking it would be great for vacations and such. BUT I was wrong! Originally the camera seemed to be just fine, until I tried to use the "waterproof" feature. I barely took the camera under the surface of the water to take a picture and the camera crashed. The camera completely quit working all together. You could see water under the screen so I could obviously tell it had water damage.
Teenager proof and good pictures for her memories.

Summary: I needed a camera for my daughter that would take somewhat a beating and be waterproof since she started diving. She loves it and the pictures turn out very well. Even the underwater ones I am pleased with. I like it because it has not leaked and has taken a beating and a few drops. I highly recommend getting a better wrist band that makes it float. Trust me!!! It has saved it more than once.
