We bought this camera for my wife who needed a small camera without all of the different electronic features of our bigger camera. We were glad it was water resistant and fairly easy to use. One of the things you must be careful is to make sure you have the camera on the right setting for the specific lighting and motion setting; sports, movement by the subject of the picture, etc... We bought another battery for it so if the one battery ran out of power we could exchange it.
This camera took great pics on our vacation to cancun, both underwater and at the beach. It ended up being our go to camera for most of the vacation because of the sand and humid conditions. We have since used it at home for outdoor activities, including; hiking, boating, parades and backyard bbqs. The pics are clear, the settings are easy to use, and charging/downloading are super simple.
I was unsure about buying another small camera. I felt I should be upgrading to a bigger fancier camera. But I love how small cameras can easily fit in my jacket pocket, or purse. This camera takes nice pictures, with a quick point and shoot option. This is nice when you need to take a quick picture.
