Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Great camera, really durable. Brought it to go travelling around South America and is standing up to the punishment very well. Lots of great underwater shots. Would definitely recommend.
Bad points:
A view finder would be a useful addition as it can be hard to see the screen in sunlight but apart from that we haven´t found any real faults.
