Samsung AQ100


I ended up returning this camera. It froze up on me. None of the buttons would work including the power button. I had to pop the battery out to get it to turn off.

It seemed like a nice durable camera. The photo quality seemed ok. I liked the design

No super macro ; the camera froze up or "crashed" when I took several photos in a few minutes ; The body also got very warm when it froze

Samsung WP10 review


Finished in an attractive aquamarine blue that others may call turquoise, Samsung's durably waterproof WP10 snapper wears its creature of the deep credentials with pride. And whilst, yes, the shiny smooth faceplate is indeed nice to look at and stroke,...

Attractive styling, fair pricing for underwater photographers on a budget, HDMI output, easy to use

Slippery surface means that it’s hard to get a firm grip on the camera, slow to respond to button presses, snapshot-level feature set, no direct USB nor standard AV output (just HDMI), modest battery life

Glossy waterproof offering for all-weather photographers on a budget who are happy with snapshot quality memories of their adventures, but not without its limitations
