    "Fantastic camera that will bring you an entirely waterproof experience for a pretty decent price too of less than 300 bucks. 16mp camera combined with wifi connectability means you can take photos and then shoot them over to your laptop almost instantly so you can start sharing. Great little camera for people who are always on the go although it has been discontinued from Nikon. "

    "Fuji is a great brand and I really trust them when it comes to anything on film. The little instant camera hearkens back to the Polaroid, which i loved."

    "I have been buying cameras for about a decade and always look to buy the best one for the money I have. I found Brinno BCC200 and it looked really good, had really good specs, and really good reviews. I bought it and when I got it I started to use it in all sorts of situations. It works really well and captures everything whether it's at night or during the day. "

    "The GoPro HERO5 Session is a great little camera. I didn't want to spend a fortune and I found this for 200.00 on amazon.So far it's been working awesome. Using it under water and action shots with no issues. It fit great on bike handlebars, cycling helmet, and pocket horseback riding. If your looking for a reasonably priced camera, with no need to hold , this is perfect"

    "Bought for a two week vacation. took around 1800 photos. For the most part, all the pix are great. the refresh cycle is pretty fast. it slows as the battery drains. but I got five days or 500 pictures per charge. I have not set up any of the wifi features so I can not comment on that."
