    "Absolutely loved having this on our trip! I highly recommend getting the attachment for attaching this to your backpack. It made life so much easier just unstrapping and shooting! Pictures turned out great and it was completely waterproof as described. Knocked it around the rocks while snorkeling in Mexico and no issues whatsoever! Highly recommended!!!"

    "The Nikon COOLPIX AW120 was a fantastic camera to use on my last vacation, especially for the shallow scuba diving where I was able to record a very cool HD video of the area. Also, I am a bit clumsy, so the durability of the camera was a great perk!"

    "I think this device is the best because it works in the most intense of conditions. I enjoy hiking, and often find myself in some extremely treacherous places. This camera was able to withstand the elements and produce a crystal clear video that I could terrify my mom with."

    "This is a decent little point and shoot underwater camera. The zoom doesn't work very well, but I'm talking shooting underwater here, and zoom is not a real relevant factor down there. The images come out just fine if the light is decent. A great little toy for a water based vacation."
