If you want a Camera for the beach, pool, all Weather or to go up to 3meters under Water. Get It!! for the price it is the best on the market. You can let your wife and children use it too - it is hard to break it and with the auto picture the will make some impressive picture. The picture a quit well for the Camera.

Great camera. I have used this camera in flowing rivers and lakes with no problems. To date I have taken over 1000 underwater images with no problems encountered.

None of them have reported any issues with this camera. Problems: None

Problems: Poor light performance is very poor - in anything other than ideal light focus lock on is rare.

Rainy days are not a worry when you want to take outdoor shots. Underwater ability gives you another world of photography to explore. Problems: A little condensation on the lens when there's a sudden change of temperature
