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.
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!!!
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.
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!
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.
