I have to say I was skeptical when I received the camera the day before we were to leave for Belize. It is so small that I thought it couldn't possibly take decent pictures. We used it snorkeling, diving and just as a regular camera on boat trips. It is so easy to use and the pictures/videos came out fantastic! Everyone that was on the trip with us commented on how cool it was and once they saw the pictures they were even more amazed. I loved the fact that I didn't have to worry about losing it when I was diving.
