"Now I'm in paradise with a dead battery in a new camera with little hope in finding a replacement! "
_
"The battery cover is flimsy and popped open under water."
_
"Other problems -- battery life was horrendous."
_
"Used it for about 15 minutes, turning it on and off several times during that time, and the battery was already dead."
_
"Oh the charge port is Inside the battery compartment as well as a port to hook up to the computer and transfer the contents and video."
_
"Low battery life but it's amazing."
_

Button

Button:
"Under the water, it is easy to push the wrong button on the back which switches from still shots to video."
_
"The only complaint is a delay between pressing the shutter button and capturing the image."
_
"Failure to do so I noticed the buttons beginning to get stuck after being in the ocean water just once even though I dried it but didn't wash it in tap water."
_
"In each case, I was able to get the buttons to work after messing with them for a while, but I missed several photo opportunities in the process."
_
"It seems to take good pictures, and it seems to stop the motion well, but there is a delay from when you push the button to when it takes the picture, so I missed several shots."
_
"Under the water, it is easy to push the wrong button on the back which switches from still shots to video."
_
"It has a beautiful and functional body and the buttons are in the right place to get the picture."
_
"One feature I especially like is that the functions are done using buttons, that is this camera does not have those irritating, frustrating touch screen features like our last camera."
_
"It zooms in out easily and there are separate buttons for photo and video (video also records audio), making it very easy to just point and start shooting right away."
_
"Our instructor took my camera and easily navigated the buttons underwater, including a 6 minute video of us!"

Image

Image:
"The photo quality on zoom or on details was horrible, Maybe ok for underwater only but that was not why we made the purchase."
_
"Just be aware that the image stabilization is not phenomenal."
_
"So for these reasons, I decided to return this (cheap) camera and invest some more money and get something better...If these things won't bother you, go for it...The good aspect for this camera: the image quality is good - especially if it's just for a weekend getaway at the beach pool... video image is good as well... so for the image quality I decided to give 2 stars..."
_
"In each case, I was able to get the buttons to work after messing with them for a while, but I missed several photo opportunities in the process."
_
"Took underwaterr photos in a nearby stream... amazing detail in photo."
_
"this camera was good in almost all regards for that particular usage (rugged, easy controls, good enough photo video quality, etc) , EXCEPT... the audio captured with video is AWFUL."
_
"I bought it because it's waterproof and shock proof, so kid friendly, not because of the image quality."
_
"could use image stabilization but other than that it's a really good versatile camera."
_
"And that I live on an island, it's perfect for snorkeling and taking pics in the rain."

Photo

Photo:
"I couldn't tell if the 'underwater' setting made the photos better or not, but I was still very happy with the results."
_
"Very upset that I trusted this camera with my vacation photos, when I could have used a waterproof case on my iphone and had MUCH better results."
_
"Was very optimistic about this product after testing underwater shooting in pool but when I took it on my snorkeling trip and dove no more than 10 feet, camera advertised to go down to 33 feet, the product began to malfunction and I wasn't able to take any underwater water photos."
_
"Hours wasted on my vacation and photos missed with my kids which was the main point of the purchase."
_
"Read the book cover to cover, tried a few features hoping to improve photos, but if the subject, such as a pet, is moving, then the photos are horrible."
_
"Took underwaterr photos in a nearby stream... amazing detail in photo."
_
"One more thing, make sure you keep your fingers or hands away from the lens window especially when carrying it around, I noticed that lens window is a fingerprint magnet and even with dry hands it is very easy to get it smudged and this causes the photos to come out very blurry or foggy."
_
"We have been very happy with the photos we got from it, and can vouch for it being both waterproof and at least somewhat shockproof."
_
"I am taken pictures outside of our house, I am taken both photos and videos under water at my pool and we were both amazed at quality of it."
_
"Takes excellent photos with good waterproofing."
