Summary: I have had this excellent camera for over 5 years now. Originally purchased for pool/snorkeling/diving photography. I quite by accident realized what a great out of water camera it is, too! I now use it exclusively (except for the occasional iPhone pic)for all my photos, including holidays, weddings, etc. NOTE: Right after I got it, I was cleaning some things around my desk with Goo Gone, and without thinking I wiped the viewer window, which clouded up the plastic.
Summary: I bought this item second hand to be able to use at the beach and tubing and I have not been disappointed. The menu functions are easy to figure out (mine didn't come with a manual) and the pictures are great! The only thing that is a draw back for me is that it will only take up to a 1GB card, but other than that, it is very versatile for sun, surf and sand.
Excerpt: "So there's a conundrum. I got a nice new shiny underwater camera for Christmas, and I have been itching to try it out and post a review of it. There's a snag: I could take a picture of myself in the bath, which would lead to all kinds of problems with nubile women beating down my door, it isn't very strong and I would not like the expense of replacing it. I could post pictures I have taken with it but they don't really show the key feature, ...
Pros: is rugged and can be used in water
Cons: Lacks advanced features that my Panasonic has
Summary: - É uma camera muito boa, totalmente funcional. Recomendo a todos os iniciantes em mergulho, muita atenção não recomendo usar este modelo para mergulhos com cilindro pois ela é limitada a 10metros de profundidade. Na minha opinião fiz um bom negocio pois para meu uso (sem cilindro) ela atende muito bem com baixo custo pois as concorrentes são carissimas.
