This camera filled with water within seconds. I didn't get one picture at the Red Sea which I had bought it for. Sad thing is this holiday was a gift and I will never get the chance to go again! Felt totally sick about the non-performance of this...

Camera had focussing problems, zoom didn't work properly - took back to Argos for a refund and bought a Fuji J32 instead which is sooooo much better.

Great Deal

 

This is my first camera that I personally owned, I've used so many high quality cameras and some low quality ones. For the this price this is a steal for anyone starting out with video cameras. It's not the top of the line, but it will hold it's own...
