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!
not distinguish colors well into the evening and night

Summary: when you take pictures in the water is good, about 5 meters, beyond are confusing, the outdoor shots are good in normal light, but when you want a tropical sunset, with those bright colors distinguish not, your screen does not have a good contrast to see you take. your flash reaches about 4 meters and at night its colors are wrong.
Summary: The important thing is that it takes great pictures. I could get pictures in focus in pitch darkness (it has a red light that helps it focus). The colors look natural and it has a helpful help button. It's nice not to worry about water splashes and dirt etc. If I had to complain. The memory card: It doesn't come with a starter one. I carefully wrote down the requirements and got the right card right away. Also the memory card can go in, in any orientation.
Summary: Overall I like this camera. I read other reviews which implied that the construction is flimsly, but I disagree. The camera is compact but solid, and is a good value. Photograph quality was quite good; I have a few Canon point & shoot cameras (and my wife has a Nikon), and this one matches those for image quality.
Summary: ****UPDATE 05/06/2013******************** Put battery in and camera operated with no problems. It had me reenter date/time info etc but everything looks good. Took some pics - all turned out well, I just won't immerse it again. On the plus side, it's obviously durable. ****Original Review 04/13/2013*********** I honestly think that I received a defective camera because it leaked the first time it came in contact with the water--battery compartment, behind the LCD screen.
Summary: Right out of the box, this was a bit of a disappointment. Like many others, I expected to be able to use this right away and had planned to take it to the beach during a weekend get-away. It arrived in time but sadly, don't plan to use this without a bit of advance planning. You will need to purchase a Micro-SD card etc before using. Micro-SD cards. I own 3 digital cameras plus an assortment of other electronics so have SD cards everywhere..
