Mike, Eastleigh Keen amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The camera was easy to set up and use. Went white water rafting and tied it to the life jacket. Survived it with flying colours. recommend it for out door activities and why not have a close to indistructable camera for the same price as a normal one. I recommend it.
Bad points:
Keep the lens protection glass clean. No viewfinder.

Paul, Colchester Point & shoot

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Underwater pictures are excellent
Bad points:
Taking photos with the flash is very poor. Dont bother to use at night as the flash is little better than a phone camara.
