So I really do like this camera but I had a bad experience day two. I bought this for a trip to Hawaii where I knew I'd be in the ocean and pool quite a bit. It takes pretty decent pictures. Great for daylight...night mode leaves a little to be desired . .. but then again, I didn't buy an underwater camera for night pictures. My bad experience was on a tubing trip. It took a bunch of pictures and then froze. I couldn't restart it or turn it off for a solid 10 minutes or so. I finally took the battery out and got it to reset. It worked ok after that but was a big hassle to get it working again (while in a tube). That said the next day I took it snorkeling and it worked quite well. So, maybe the freezing was a fluke? I'd also second the other commenters saying to watch the water droplets on the lens. All in all, I'd probably buy it again, it was a good value for the price. If I have it freeze again, I'll update my review.
