  • Not What I Expected
    Verified BuyerReviewed by WRMILLER74 - May 20, 2015

    I purchased this camera to take photos in locations I didn't want to cary my non-weather proof camera and camcorder. I was excited by the thought of this camera and not having to worry about it getting dirty or wet or sandy, etc. But the quality in my opinion didn't live up or make the convenience of this camera. The photos were horrible and had a water color painted look. Things just looked face. I'm suspecting this is because of the high compression or something but the quality wasn't great or even goon in my opinion. The video quality also wasn't anything to brag about. I'm not willing to give up that much photo or video quality just to be able to throw the camera around without having to worry about it getting dirty or wet. It still comes back to the quality of information and output in my opinion. Returned this camera after having only played with it maybe for about an hour trying to see if quality could be improved. I was unable to get better results after changing many settings.
