Good, basic point and shoot for over and under watter. Good to a depth of 1 atmosphere (33'). Camera has a underwatter close up feature as well as two focal length lenses and flash built in. Camera floats. down side - limmited to depth of 33'. Pictures can be shot from a slightly deeper depth by floating the camera to a shallower depth with a teather to release the pressure on the shutter spring.

Brought more as a all purpose camera, no problems with submersion while snorkling in Fiji. However encountered short battery life and poor inbuild flash preformance leading to dark blurry pictures.
