4.0 out of 5 stars Great Camera for the Price, September 7, 2011

This review is from: Kodak EasyShare Sport C123 12 MP Waterproof Digital Camera (Red) (Camera)
I bought this camera for our honeymoon to Hawaii intending on abusing it in the ocean, and did just that. We used the camera for underwater pictures, video, and even for a lot of normal pictures out and about. Having given the camera a hard drive, here is my honest feed back:

Cost - This camera is a great price in comparison to other underwater digital cameras, which you really have to want to invest in. We already have a number of cameras, and specifically got this just for water photos. If you want a camera for the rest of your life that may take pictures in and out of water, you might want to consider investing is something a little higher in quality, but for getting a majority of your underwater shots, invest in this camera over disposables. Trust me, it's worth it!

Underwater picture quality - We took a lot of video and pictures while snorkeling, and the pictures for the most part turned out amazing. Don't get me wrong, some are dark and some are blurry... but most of the pictures, and especially the videos actually turned out really nice. One important point, the lense is fixed. Therefore, the lense does not move in and out when zooming. I noticed that the more you zoom, the less quality the picture is. Just something to keep in mind.

Water-proofing - We did not have a single problem with this. We took the camera in the ocean, a waterfall, and in the pool, and not once did we have water get into the camera. Take care of the camera and make sure the doors/seals are closed, and this camera will handle the water well.

Finally, one last point is on the lense fogging. This DOES happen when getting in and out of water (mostly with temperature changes). The fastest way I found to defog the lense is turn it off, and then place the lense in direct sunlight. The fogging will disappear in a few minutes.

I know this is too long, but in summary - The camera is a great choice for someone that wants much higher quality than disposable cameras, wants to take underwater pictures, and has another camera for the rest of your high quality day-to-day pictures (aka not in the water). If you want an all around high quality camera for in and out of water, maybe looking into getting a more expensive waterproof.
