"Best "outdoor" camera for the price!"4.5 starson by lakotasue
Pros: I've used this camera for snorkeling, taking in my kayak and "on-land" photos. It is awesome! It takes not only still shots, but video as well. Once familiar with basic functions, it was easy to use on-the-fly.!
Cons: Not much I don't like. The zoom isn't as much as I'd like and there's a little lag btwn clicking the button and shutter response so fast action stills can be challenging if you don't have fast reflexes.
Summary: I have dropped this camera, banged it against the side of my kayak multiple times, used it in extreme cold, underwater, on land, and have come out with some amazing photos. The clarity and ease of focus are excellent. The video is great, but the audio could be a little louder. When the lens is too dirty (get sunscreen or something on it), the camera will tell you so you don't waste photo ops. Regarding other's comments on the camera "quitting" on them, I've had the camera for a year and not had this happen. The battery is easy to remove and charge and it charges quickly. The only accessory I would like to add is a neck strap for when I'm kayaking or other water activities. All things considered, this is an excellent "sports" camera considering the price. To get anything better, one would have to pay a lot more money.
