Score 10.0/10
Good points:
The camera has an amazing under water feature, really clear underwater images, took it surfering and got some great shots. Also the shake feature is brilliant, took it on a roller coaster and the photos came out clear and steady.A geat camera for action shots.
Bad points:
It requires care, after being used in water you have to remember to clean it and soak it, but this isnt difficult.

Paul, Manchester Point & shoot

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Water and shock proof. Very well made, looks like it can take the knocks that it's designed for. Big, clear screen. Buttons big enough to use underwater. Very quick flash i.e. it's ready within a second or 2 of turning it on.
Bad points:
None so far!

Moorsey, Lancaster Keen amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Solid,compact and a very near little camera, i bought it to take snorkelling on holiday and have already used it when kayaking to great effect. When you consider the cost of buying and developing disposable waterproof cameras and then throwing away half the photos it makes buying onw of these little beauties a no brainer. You can keep this camera with you wherever you go without worrying about it getting knocked about or soaking wet, brilliant.
Bad points:
Battery life could be better, a little bulkier then some of the new slim digitals down to its tough build and it would have been a great improvement to have a mini usb socket for charging and connecting up to a pc instead of their own specific connection socket. Minor quips though, spend the extra on spare battery and buy one now you wont be dissapointed!
