Sandra , Christchurch Dorset Keen amateur

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Easy to use, takes brilliant underwater videos ideal for holidays etc Great fun and terrific value for money, highly recommended.
Bad points:
only two problems.
1. When filming underwater it is difficult see what you are actually filming, so its a bit hit and miss, great fun but you cant be sure what you have videoed till you play it back.
2. After editing you cannot send the movie back to the camera it only be played back onto a computer.So, you can only show disjointed clips on the t.v., and the edited movie can only be shown on your computer.

Confirmed purchaser Experienced amateur

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Very fast shutter speed on still photos and great recording Quaility.
Its a pocket video camera so it should not have a flash and since cameras need light it is normal to assume less quality under low light conditions but this camera copes quite well with that compared to other cameras.
Bad points:
Very soft sound when playing back videos, but that is expected because the camera is tightly sealed to be water proof.

Peter, Tadley Professional videographer

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Robust manufacture with accurate colour balance and focusing. Sound excellent for such a little camera. I bought the wide angle lens for the camera and it opens up the picture, no distortion. I used it along with 2 other non kodak cameras to record my band live at a gig, the results were excellent from this camera-head and shoulders above other so called high def units. Used the sound from this camera and cut the other to it. Great piece of kit. Have not used itunder water yet but will.
Bad points:
Can't find any so far.
