3.0 out of 5 stars Waterproof? No not really, December 28, 2012
By 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I purchased this camera in April of 12' specifically for a trip I planned to Mexico in December. I had time to get used to using it, my big mistake was not trying it out in the pool. Four days into our trip we got to do some snorkeling (the reason I bought the camera in the first place). The camera worked great for about two hours afterward. It was in salt water so after we got out I rinsed it gently with fresh water and towel dried it. When we were on the bus back to the hotel I wanted review the pics I took and when I turned the screen on it was black. The camera still worked but the screen was out of commission. So four days into my seven day trip my camera was worthless. Upon returning home I contacted Nikon for warranty service which was not without aggravation, I'll spare the details. They're promise was to return it to me within 7 to 10 days. It's been ten days so far and they still have the camera. I was not impressed with the service from anyone I spoke to at Nikon and after using their "waterproof to 33 ft" in three feet of water and have it fail miserably I wouldn't recommend this camera or any Nikon product after my experience.

Lovely Days says:
Many cameras that claim waterproof are often not what they claim. It sounds like you are looking for an underwater camera. This one might be more fitting for what it sounds like you plan on doing: SeaLife Reefmaster Mini Underwater Camera. Dive cameras/underwater cameras/etc. are not only made to be fully submerged into water for activities such as you described, not simply momentarily dropped into water and "rescued", they are also usually designed a bit differently to process color underwater. That is, light waves travel under water differently than they do in air, so color (especially rich colors like reds and yellows) is often difficult to capture. So many of these cameras are designed to process light a bit differently to capture the image you see with your eyes, despite the underwater distortion. Hope you have better luck next time.
