4.0 out of 5 stars Hasn't been in water yet, August 25, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: GE G5WP 12MP Waterproof Digital Camera with 4X Optical Zoom and 2.7-Inch LCD with Auto Brightness (Graphite Grey) (Electronics)
The reason I purchased this is because Olympus Stylus tough 8000 with all their durable adjectives aren't waterproof! First time in the water,,,,failed and I had to eat the price as a typical consumer, the warranty card got misplaced...so in a sense this is an anti-review. I need a camera that is fairly weather resistant. All the cameras with retractable lenses will pull sand into the camera body...it is unavoidable. This camera is reasonably priced, takes ok pictures, and maybe works in water, I am afraid to try it....

But my experience with their waterproof competitor...OLYMPUS was bad on all levels...especially company service. Camera drowns in water, only 3 months old.

Summary on GE camera: Small, takes pictures, easy, easy directions, easy upload to computer, and hopefully waterproof...not great but was priced right VERSUS OLYMPUS..priced high and doesn't work at all and no recognition on part of OLYMPUS that their product does not perform as advertised...

Ok I feel a bit better for my 380 dollar paper weight vent!
