Great Cam - Short Battery life
on March 19, 2012
I love this camera!! And others do too it would seem, seeing as my first one got stolen :(
I used it all day at a water park, got great video of water slides and with the neoprene case that comes with it it was so handy to keep on your person all day. I clipped it onto my swim suit, and it got dragged through water, went on water slides, and all was good, until it got snatched :(
However towards the end of the day I did realize that the battery was running low after only a couple videos (30 seconds max) and about 40 or so photos. But I am not sure if that is because I forgot to turn it off or something.
As for the comments saying it is not water proof, I think the water proof technology is rather new for digital cameras, and I believe that we are not completely aware as consumers of how to make sure that the case is locked and ready to go. Read all instructions is my best advice. I had no issues at all.
I loved this camera so much, I bought another as soon as I got home from my vacation! This time I went with Orange instead of Green, but I think I prefer the green to the orange.
It is a great snap and shoot camera. Nothing extravagant, just nice, compact, and ready for fun :)
