Good points:
does what it sayes on the box... works underwater.
Bad points:
cant see the screen and so have no idea what you are taking on what the settings are... I managed to get it ontot the internal memory and filled it up within a few shots and then it didnt take any more even though there was plenty room on the card... :-(

John, Hertfordshire Point & shoot

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Easy to use (once you've read the instructions). Takes good video as well as photos. Very robust & solid construction. Max 8 mega pixels. Powerful flash (which is needed underwater). Very good value for money.
Bad points:
No optical zoom. Difficult to see the screen underwater (& no view finder). The camera is quite bulky & needs a larger camera case than is generally available.

Leigh, haverhill Keen amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Better value than disposable cameras, you can see what photos you have taken, easy for the whole family to use.
Bad points:
There are not many cameras to choose from in this price range, this was the cheapest but still a little more than I think it's worth.
