Fantastic for the money,
This review is from: NEW WP5300 Pink Waterproof 12MP Digital Camera& Video Recorder(compatible with micro SD card) (Electronics)
We bought this camera (actually a blue one) prior to going on a cruise in the Western Caribbean. We were planning on an excursion to feed stingrays and thought this would be useful. You have to bear in mind that this is a $50 camera and so your expectations shouldn't be too high. However, having said that I used this at Islands of Adventure and Typhoon Lagoon before we went on the cruise, as well as on the excursion. My son took it snorkeling and photographed the reefs and you know what? I was very impressed. Yes you have to take extra care to avoid movement and prevent blurring, but is this worse than a lot of other cameras for that? Absolutely not. We were VERY impressed with the picture quality (in and out of the water), it didn't seem that bad on batteries - I've certainly had worse, just avoid using flash if battery life is an issue for you.
All in all a great little robust easy to use and reliable camera. And for this price you can't do better.

have you had any problems since? I am thinking about buying one, but the comments are half & half, I'm not sure whether to really trust it in the water also. Thank You!
