Perfect for outdoor adventures,
This review is from: Polaroid IF045-ORNG-BLIS-2 14MP Dual Screen Waterproof Digital Digital Camera with 2.7-Inch LCD (Orange) (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Electronics)
I bought this camera as a back up to my large 35mm camera for a canoeing/camping trip. I planned to purchase 2-3 waterproof disposables, but at $10 each plus a similar amount for processing, figured I would just try a cheap waterproof digital camera. I am so glad I did! Not only did it take very decent photos, but we got the bonus of video as well. Have to agree with other reviews - don't use the zoom feature. The pictures get blurry quickly with zooming in on anything, but the wide angle shots were crisp and clear. Took fun underwater shots as well, but only went a foot or two deep, so I can't speak to the tolerance of 3 meters as advertised. Nearly all photos were taken outdoors and the lighting was great. The few done with flash did require a long flash charge time. Batteries wore down quickly - used 6 AAA batteries for roughly 200 photos and 15 minutes of video over 5 days - but still well worth the cost. Tolerated water, mud and the general banging around of camping without any difficulty. If you get the SD card with an adapter (around $10), you can download the photos into any SD card port rather than using the cord.

The description is false. It says "5x optical zoom" but the camera is digital zoom only. Upsetting since I bought this for my granddaughter's special day (in 2 days) and there is no time to return it and replace it. I trusted the vendor.
