Q & As

Rated 3 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by A drawback for the unwary. It appears to be a good camera but it has a serious drawback in that the operating instructions for transferring photographs to a computer cannot be downloaded if the computer uses the Microsoft Windows XP operating system! 24 November 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great little camera! I bought this camera because I had a two week watersports holiday coming up. The camera is easy to use, robust and it fits into a shirt pocket so you can take it anywhere. I haven't used all of the features yet but the ones that have impressed me include the short time to boot up, the wide angle lens, panorama settings (180 and 360 degrees), simple exposure compensation and the altimeter. The photographs are good but not quite digital SLR quality. For me the big advantage of this camera is that I can take photographs in places where I would never bring an ordinary camera - swimming, kayaking, windsurfing, hill walking and mountain biking. I don't know how I ever managed without it! 29 July 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Ticks all the boxes but no wow factor We purchased the camera for a holiday to replace a digital compact camera and another camera with underwater casing. My husband is quite techy and when selecting a camera he liked the additional features of the GPS, WIFI, altimeter etc also with 2 small children we saw the shock proof element as an added bonus. In short it looks pretty good and the digital images are reasonable but with all of the added features switched on the battery life is quite disappointing, lasting only a day when fully used. Underwater shots again were fine. We both felt that although shockproof it doesn't feel it, there is nothing rugged or hardwearing about the camera. So in summary we felt that the camera sounded better on paper than in reality, no specific issues just no wow factor either. 08 July 2014
