Summary: I did not buy this camera to take pictures underwater, not what it's best at. What it is best at, at least for me, is withstanding the rigorous activities I put it through. It is tiny, I wear it on a lanyard around my neck so it is always there.
Summary: this camera has great quality for it's size and the fact alone that it's lens do not come out, and it is waterproof. the quality underwater is amazing, and it's cool to use. it's been through so much, and i even bought it a second time after the first one broke!
Summary: At the time I got this as a gift for my wife it was one of the only waterproof compact point-and-shoot cameras on the market. There have been several others since but this one is still great. We have used it in the pool as well as both fresh water and salt water snorkel trips.
Summary: I bought this camera about 3 years ago and am very happy with it. While the picture quality isn't as good as it was with my Sony CyberShot DSC-H3 or my Sony Cybershot DSC-W5 but I guess features come at a cost.
Summary: I've owned four point and shoot cameras over the past 10 years, and this one is by far the best one in terms of durability and night time picture quality. My previous Canons were pretty good until they stopped working after 2-3 years.
