Top critical review
Works great.... Most of the time.
on November 29, 2013
I wanted a simple underwater camcorder. This did great, especially for the price. I was impressed with the size and quality of the waterproof case. Overall it does what it's supposed to most of the time.
The reasons why I didn't give it more stars is that the on/off record button does not always work, it sticks and you cannot always record when you want. The case filled with condensation on one occasion (of about 10 total uses). The above water film while in case has a lot of color distortion, mostly in the red range. Not a deal breaker by no means but weird to see purple sea water. The included memory card (4g) only holds about 1 hour of footage, so it's kinda a pain to offload every time. One time on a dive one of the ten minute video segments got corrupted while saving so it stopped recording. That was a bummer to only have 20 min of a 45 min dive.
All that being said, it works, I have lots of good footage, easy to use, and it's cheaper than anything else for same purpose.
