Leatherhead GB Keen amateur
Really easy to use. Great features. Brilliant picture quality. We loved this camera so much that we stuck with it even after the first one failed
This is the second of these cameras we have had. The first failed the first time it went in the water. Unfortunately leaving us with no photos at the Barrier Reef, a once in a life time trip. FRUSTRATING. I would suggest everyone test this camera in a sink or bath before using it on holiday. The camera seals failed filling the camera with water.

Selby GB Experienced amateur
Whole camera is surprisingly good! Very robust and well made, chunky and bombproof. Very good video and underwater capability. Unless you are a scuba diver its 13m maximum depth is fine. Battery life improves with use.
Could do with better underwater sighting system. Image sometimes difficult to see so your can't always be sure of the shot you are taking.

Ellesmere Port GB Point & shoot
Like the way it likes via wifi to your smart phone, tablet etc. The remote control element by phone is excellent & all round pleased with purchase.
There isnt any! Maybe a little heavier than I would have liked but that is all. Oh... & would be nice if it came with a case!
