This camera kinda has a screwy reputation on here, but I think it's a wonderful machine as long as you take good care of it. It makes great shots and videos above water as well as underwater. It can safely stay underwater for half an hour, after that you want to get it out and gently dry it off. It can also dive up to sixteen feet (I rarely go past eight so it was fine for me). The annoying thing is that ZERO sand can get inside the camera, so it's a little tricky having it on the beach but if you are careful it'll be ok.
The camera itself has numerous shooting modes, including but not limited to landscapes, sunsets, snow, beaches, and three types of underwater shooting (you really only need two...) The battery is pretty solid, it only dies quickly if you film a lot of videos in succession.
Overall I recommend this camera, especially to people who like to shoot underwater. I got amazing underwater pictures of fish and a sea turtle on my trip to Hawaii! It's a good buy.
