Cheaply made--read all reviews before buying
on August 14, 2013
I read lots of reviews on this camera and thought about it for a very long time before purchasing. Most reviews were bad, but there were a few good ones. My daughter wanted this so badly for her birthday that I decided to risk it. That was a terrible mistake. This was to be the highlight of her day. I had her open it right before going out to the pool, and she never even got to use it! The next hour was spent trying to get the battery/card door to close correctly and then calling Coleman. The customer service rep kept telling me that if I held it correctly and pushed down REALLY hard while I slid the door shut, it would latch. But he said that if the latch didn't click and the door could be opened easily without pushing the latch, then water would get in--ruining my SD Card, etc. I didn't want water to get in b/c I feared it would cancel my warranty, so I just kept trying to close it. Then my son and my husband both tried several times. Finally we gave up. Do not buy this item. Amazon was very helpful in processing my return quickly.
