Awesome camera for the price – 2.0" TFT LCD 5MP CMOS Waterproof Digital Camera Camcorder with 4X Digital Zoom/SD Card Slot Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
- Great video quality in the day
- Decent video quality at night
- Surprisingly good audio quality
- Lots of accessories and holders
- Waterproof case (I just did a scuba dive to 96 feet and the case didn't leak a single drop)
- Suction cup holds very well
- Lots of programmable settings
Cons:
- Doesn't come with a memory card
- Narrow-angle (Not wide-angle)
- Can't use any of the holders when it's in the case
- When plugging in USB, have to use the menu to choose Data before you can grab stuff and put it on the computer.
- Doesn't charge unless you choose charge from the menu when plugging in
- To put it in a holder, you snap a piece on to the camera and then that piece attaches (not very well) to the desired holder
- Always goes back to HD video mode when you turn it off (Doesn't stay in photo mode for instance)
The only huge con in my opinion is not being able to use waterproof case in the holders
Other:
- Would be nice if it could detect when it was upside down and flip the video
- Waterproof case is good for keeping valuables and money dry when at the beach, swimming, or diving if you don't use the camera
Bottomline:
Great camera for the price with good quality video. Pretty easy to use and you can probably trust the case to really be waterproof!
