1 out of 5 eggsBroke 1st time in water

Pros: Works great outside of water

Cons: Not very waterproof in water

Other Thoughts: I bought this item for my families vacation since we were going snuba diving in The Cayman Islands. I got underwater turned on the camera and within 4min of video recording the screen filled with water and the camera crapped out. Very upset i was only about to use it for 4 min underwater, i never went more than 10' under the water which is nowhere near 16.4' which i should of been able to refurbished or not.

1 out of 5 eggsUnbelievable - literally

Pros: Seems like great value for the price. I thought it was too good to be true - turns out I was right!

Cons: This is supposed to be Water, Shock and Dust proof.

Well, I have had it in my hands for 2 days and I read all the instructions and warnings to make sure I was using it correctly and safely. I took it to the pool - a very clean water environment - to video my kids swimming, and after less than 5 minutes in and out of shallow water, it stopped working.

I left it on a towel in the breeze to dry and had a look - and I saw condensation in the lens! What the... This is a factory refurb, but still if done in the factory should be as good as new (sure looks new).

At this point I'm very disappointed. I have videos to make and was going to use this as a second position camera and now I can't do dual camera shoot. This really is annoying and I'll be asking for a full refund. You can't refurb a refurb! It's like polishing ....

5 out of 5 eggsPresent

Pros: Great picture quality, nice feel, good value overall.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Got this for my sister in law for Christmas to record the new baby growing up. She had been borrowing my wifes camera so we thought this would be perfect considering the baby slobbers and splashes water around and whatnot since its waterproof/water resistant. That is something the other reviewer mentioned, that the waterproofing failed with them. We haven't had any problems like that but like I said its been drooled on and splashed with bath water, not submerged in a pool or the ocean. But those with babies know how big of a pool they can make at times, I will update if it fails. She will most definitely tell me about it lol

1 out of 5 eggsNOT Waterproof!

Pros: Shoots great HD quality video and images. Easy to use.

Cons: This camera is in no way waterproof. Even after following the instructions completely (ensuring that all ports were sealed completely before submerging) the seals failed in less than 2 feet of water. Not only did I lose the camera, I lost the opportunity to shoot video of a once in a lifetime trip.
