"Survived a day in the pool with the kids"3.5 starson by chokehold
Pros: Small size, waterproof, durable, easy to use, easy to grip finish, inexpensive, decent picture quality. Anybody can pick it up and use it with minimal instruction.
Cons: Whitebalance was a little off at times. Would be nice to have a larger view screen that swiveled for easier underwater shooting. I also wish it had a wider angle lens. When you get up close, like easy conversational range, a little too much is cut off.
Summary: I have had none of the charging problems noted by others. If you are looking for an inexpensive camera to take to the beach or a pool party, this would be the one. I am also puzzled by the review that said it doesn't connect to usb as mine does. Maybe he meant the liffle flip out plug like some others, but remember it is supposed to be waterproof. Every port is a potential catastrophic failure. A flip out usb jack would be asking for trouble.
