Customer Review

on January 10, 2011
I really like this camera as soon as i got it - it's a great size - fits in the palm of the hand very nicely, looks like a mobile phone - people keep asking me if it is a mobile.

Well built or so it seems so far - tested in the pool, has sturdy rubber waterproof seals - the battery life is pretty decent also as the screen is no bigger than a nokia E72 - lasts long enough with a good power save function when not in use.

Not sure if i'm a fan of the USB interface ... click out the USB connector and plug it in directly to a port! i'm always paranoid i'll damage it so i tend to use the supplied extension cable to charge and transfer pics which can be slow when u have HD res movies...

Doesn't shoot on motion or sound detect - which would be a cool feature to have. actually this camera is relatively featureless but makes up for it with simple user interface and control.
Movie quality is very good a clean - the best i've seen underwater with good low light conditions - has a zoom function which is rather slow - but useful.

Camera does not take good still any closer than 1 meter at least.
it's also very wide screen - so make sure you shoot this thing the right way up or it will just look odd.

Easy to scratch the surface be careful to keep it in a pouch or it'll be looking shabby in no time ... black surround on the back comes off easily.
Apart from that ... one of the best around - buy buy buy
