This is my first "real" underwater camera and I'm VERY pleased with the quality of pictures. To date, I've only had it on one 2-tank dive and the day was overcast, so it was also darker underwater, but the color of the fish showed nicely in the pictures. I also love that the camera has pink trim...it matches my mask & fins!!! :)
I recently traded in my Nikonos V setup and took this camera and housing on a recent dive trip to Cozumel. It worked well, although, except in quick pic mode it's a little slow to focus. Shooting digitally underwater is a huge advantage over film and this housing/camera combination is far easier to use and maintain than the Nikonos. Overall, a good product that's easy to use.
I found this camera to be of poor quality. The housing worked well, but I had trouble seeing the screen and it was impossible to tell if it was going to be in focus or not. Often it wasn't. Definitely not worth that much money.
