Terrible underwater pics, even after tweaks from the manual. Returned and bought Canon D10, worth every penny, amazing underwater pics and options. Don't waste your time or money with this camera. The Canon is worth the extra

Picture quality is poor


weather proof and small

image quality is terrible. forget about a crisp pic with this camera. i thought it was just because of the waterproof preview screen, but when i downloaded the pics to my computer they were not sharp at all, colors were poor and contrast was a joke

Great companion camera


Great companion camera for those hairy situations when you don't want to risk damage to your hugely expensive digital SLRs. Has all the usual bells and whistles that make it easy to use, and the panoramic mode is especially fun.About me... semi-pro...

Very good but not responsive enough


I used it on a cruise it had clear underwater pictures in rough waters but it's difficult to turn on and it's slow. It's not bad for the price.About me... casual user

its shockproof and waterproof and takes good quality pictures

it takes to long to power on at least a minute and it also takes long to take pictures
