Great little camera!

By

from Kansas City, MO  -  Photo Enthusiast

We took this camera on vacation to Hawaii. Auto exposure on beach does result in slightly dark exposures. Otherwise take excellent pictures and no worries about getting sand or moisture in the camera! Compact - fits in shorts pocket. Excellent camera for kids.

A Clear Winner

By

from Washington DC  -  Pro Photographer

Must say, I love this little camera. As the old saying goes, the BEST camera is the one you have with you. It's perfect to carry 24/7. Is small,rugged and H2O resistant. It has the right bells and whistles. Ergomomics are extremely simple and easy to use. Is a great camera for children as well as old folks. Take it to the beach with no worries. The price is right. Don't leave home without it.

Nice, affordable underwater camera

By

from West Virginia  -  Photo Enthusiast

I bought this as a gift, so I didn't get to test it out all the way. I charged it up and tried it out a little before I gifted it. It takes really great pictures for the cost. I didn't test it underwater, but the seal that covers the battery/memory card/USB area looks as good quality as the seal on my more expensive AW100 which I have taken multiple pictures underwater with. This camera appears to have the exact same rubber seal as the AW100. If you're looking for a waterproof/underwater camera in the $100 range, I would highly recommend this.

Good Value

By

from Albuquerque, NM  -  Casual Photographer

Bought as present for grandkids 5-7. They find it easy to use and are exploring the features with minimal guidance. Takes good pictures and can erase the bad ones. Came as package with a case and extra memory which made it an even better buy.
