Don't waste your money.3/12/2013
I bought this camera knowing that it was a fairly cheap camera, but I only needed it to take a few pictures for a photo class I am taking so I didn't expect it to be professional grade. However, I did expect it to actually work like a regular point and shoot camera, where you can focus on whatever you are looking at. With this camera, you have to just "happen" to be the correct distance from your object in order for the item to be in focus. It does have a zoom on it, but again, your object just has to happen to be the correct distance from the camera in order for it to be focused in any way. The pro is you can actually get it wet, dunk it, submerge it, and it does take pictures. When I dried it off, I didn’t find any water in the battery or memory card compartment, so at least that does stay waterproofed and dry. The rest of the camera dried off easily enough and it didn’t look like there was anywhere that water could have gotten into to ruin the camera in any way. Another con though, it runs on AAA batteries and they don’t last long at all. I put in fresh batteries before attempting to take my pictures and I think that I got about 15 minutes and approximately 20 pictures before the batteries died and I had to replace them in order to attempt a few more pictures that were clearly out of focus. So my suggestion is to spend a little more money and go for a camera that actually works like a camera is supposed to.
