camera is okay - left us worried after first underwater use
on May 23, 2013
Admittedly, our family is rough on cameras. It's the main reason we purchased this camera because of the reviews stating its durability, shock resistance, and ability to stand up to beach use.
Our first use in Hawaii on the beach left us worried, though. We used it to take pictures underwater and it worked fine. However, after we turned it off and back on again, the screen was fogged up and stuck in underwater mode - none of the menu buttons would work. It wasn't until two days later when we tried taking more photos, that the menu worked again and the screen was clear.
This camera doesn't take very sharp photos and action shots must be timed perfectly. We've used other Canon cameras in the past and have been very satisfied, but this one didn't measure up to our expectations.
The package of items it comes with are okay.
