    "Wonderful camera to take underwater, to the beach, or for foul weather photography. Takes very good pictures. It is a Solid camera and great for casual photographers who want to take their camera everywhere. Takes shots quickly and pictures come out fairly clear. Amazingly long battery life. So much fun to take into the water! "

    "I don't like the styling of this camera, and it also seems a bit bulky. A go-pro camera seems like something I'd rather stick to than this. This camera also seems like I may have some difficulty holding it."
