Overall, I am very happy with my camera. I've taken it under water and to the mountains and it functions just fine. The only negative so far is that the menus sometimes get a little hard to navigate through. I have been using Canons for a lot of years and theirs is much more intuitive. For example, it took me a lot of searching and trial to find out how to take a black and white picture. I found that you actually cannot take a B&W picture but you have the option to convert and existing picture to B&W from the edit menus. Another negative may be that the flash is too harsh when taking portrait pictures and subjects who are close seem to be whited out. I am very happy with the battery life. I have been using an 8GB micro SD with the adaptor that came with the camera and that works great.

Features
Durable metal body with an innovative shock-absorbing technology protects it from drops of up to 6.6 feet.
A revolutionary system of waterproof seals and gaskets keeps water out so you can take pictures as deep as 33 feet underwater.
It's Freezeproof to 14°F/-10°C. Perfect for skiing, snowboarding, sledding and other winter fun, this camera is winterized to perform at below-freezing temperatures!
With its rugged body and reinforced LCD, the STYLUS TOUGH-8000 is designed to withstand up to 220 pounds of pressure so your camera and images are always protected.
Operate picture playback, shadow adjustment, flash mode and more just by tapping the top, back and sides of the camera. Tap Control is ideal for underwater use or when wearing gloves.
In-Camera panorama captures three images and stitches them together to create one amazing panoramic picture by simply pressing the shutter button and slowly panning across a panoramic scene.
Using a live, multi-frame window on the LCD, you can preview the effects of various settings, select and capture the perfect shot.
More than 12 million pixels in the high-resolution CCD create superior image quality. Create poster-sized prints without losing a single detail.
In addition to xD-Picture Card compatibility, the STYLUS TOUGH-8000 comes with an adapter for microSD memory card, an emerging electronic storage media for mobile phones, PDAs and HDTVs.
This large LCD features an extra-wide viewing angle and anti-glare technology for easier composing and shooting even in direct, bright sunlight.
Sensor-Shift Image stabilization combined with high ISO sensitivity and fast shutter speeds capture crisp, clear images even if the subject is moving.
A 3.6x wide-angle optical zoom captures even more of the subject into each shot. The lens does not protrude from its body so it is further protected from harsh conditions.
Soften shadows and smooth wrinkles or blemishes on your subject’s face as you capture the image. Edits can also be made after taking the picture to avoid costly image editing software.
Tracks up to 3 faces and automatically focuses and optimizes exposures for sharp, brilliant portrait pictures.
