I bought this camera on sale and even at slightly over $200 US I feel like I didn't get much. After many years its the first camera I have that fits in my pocket.

I've had the camera for a week before I got so annoyed with it, that I returned it. While the image-quality was OK for a waterproof-camera and the GPS worked well, there were so many issues with the firmware that bugged me. Problems: No manual controls whatsoever. In most scene-modes you cannot adjust ISO-settings at all and in some the camera won't even allow you to set a self-shutter. For example if you wanted to take a picture at night using a tripod the only mode that will allow you to ...
