kind of a cool camera. one has really play with it in order to get used to it. Problems: very dissapointed with this camera, as the censor gave problem within one year of usage. tried to send it for repair but, would cost around 150usd...which is not worth it...

Great for underwater, takes good quality photos and videos. Also takes pretty good night shots. Love the way it makes people's skin look with flash- in my experience, ltos fo point-and-shoots wash out the skin colour. Great macro. Problems: Slow start-up and slow shutter.

Prone to leaking later in life (like the pentax WP series) and pretty awful image quality doesn`t impress, thankfully we`re not stuck with rubbish like this now that Panasonic and Fuji are FINALLY making waterproof cameras.... Why these cams have to be so bad is a mystery and IQ seems to be at its absolute worst in this model (the 720 was actually BETTER than a 3Mp Mobile phone so what changed in the 770 and 790?) .. It needs to be VERY rainy to warrant taking one of these, or any pentax W ...

This is a handy camera for underwater shots. Definition and focus underwater is spotty, though. Problems: My camera leaked before the one-year warranty was up. This was repaired, but close-up focus was poor on return of the camera. I returned it for repair of this condition, but it came back with the same problems. Low light conditions are worse. The technical support staff routed me to Customer Service, which is unavailable after 2 pm on the west coast. They routed me back to Technical ...

I've been using this for a year without any problems, and no maintenance. In the pool at home, at the beach in Italy and Mexico, in the snow in New York. I've dragged it in the water behind my tube down the Delaware river, and amusement parks across the country. I toss it in the water to my (now) 8 year old daughter and she uses it without blinking. I have an olympus E-3 with pro ( read 5lbs) lenses, E-410, and various other cameras. When the package needs to be small and versatile, ...

I LOVE this camera. My main camera is a Nikon D300 with all the heavy expensive lenses...its awesome, but very cumbersome. I take this with me everywhere. I work in a zoo and have used it in salt and freshwater pools and have never had any problems. It is a point and shoot, I dont expect miracles and it very often exceeds my expectations. My next trip to africa I will carry both cameras.

I bought it for my cruise to the Caribbean and more specifically for snorkelling. It works as advertised, but you have to beware of a few things: 1. The LCD is not that bright and you can’t really see through the viewfinder with a snorkelling mask. I found I was just pointing and hoping because I couldn’t really see the screen. Most pictures were ok like this. 2. Since you can’t see the LCD screen in bright sunlight, half of my pictures had a big water spot since I never noticed it on the ...

When you first see this camera its hard to believe that it's shock and water resistant, the finish is very nice and it feels solid and well constructed. I purchased mine online and I was quite surprised at how small it is. Start up is very fast and in general performance is good. Image quality is reasonable but not inspiring, this is not a low light camera, but for general use noise is well controlled, lens distortion and control of fringing is good considering the size of the lens assembly. ...

I bought the camera for a recent trip I took to Boracay Island in the Phlippiines. It performed as expected. I took it snorkelling and brought it down to more than 10 feet. Lots of fun to use and gave me very memorable pictures and videos. Problems: No problems. Worked as expected. I'm glad I had it for my trip. I also used it for snap shots around town.
