  • Summary: The camera worked great the first few times we used it in the water but then it began to have problems - It got stuck in the on position and the only way to turn it off was to take out the batteries. Also it does not come with an SD card or adapter (which is necessary for transferring pictures) and the usb cable is virtually unusable for downloading pictures as it is located with the batteries and once plugged in the battery cover will not close and the computer can't...

Horrible camera-please do not buy!!!

Owl, Amazon

  • Summary: I got this camera for a birthday present and was so excited because it takes pictures under water!!! Do not let this fool you. I got this camera and it didn't even have batteries in it. We got batteries from the store and went to put them in the camera. The battery compartment wouldn't even open!!! We tried everything, knife, scissors, pliers, but nothing worked!!! Finally we had to return it to the store. I am really sad and bummed that this camera wasn't made well.

Not a bad deal.

  • Summary: For the price, I guess this camera is okay. It takes basic pictures, with not a lot of options for variety. Haven't had a ton of experience with the underwater part of it yet, just used it while canoeing and fishing. Seems to work okay so far.

Battery Compartment Not Working

  • Summary: Cute camera - but I couldn't use it because the battery compartment would not open. I tried everything to open it, but unfortunately had to send it back. However, this was the first time I had to return something bought on Amazon.com and I was pleasantly surprised at how easy the return process was!

Horrible quality photos

Ellie, Amazon
15 March 2014
  • Summary: As soon as I got this camera, I took it out and took a picture on the standard setting- the picture was bad with flash (drown out) and blurry/noisy(without flash). I turned up the quality to the highest MP and capture settings and they were still awful. I didn't test how it worked underwater; the FOCUS isn't very functional (a hard-to-turn switch on the side with two settings were up close and far away- no real in between to get the kind of sharp and aesthetically...

Charlie Kennedy, Amazon
26 September 2014
  • Summary: Only tested in a swimming pool. Great to have the possibility to take photos underwater and the size/weight is really good. However it's really difficult to see anything on the screen and the camera is very slow to react and take a picture. So a huge step forward in being able to take a photo underwater but nowhere near the performance you woudl expect from any modern camera.
