I can't see it.
price gone up now.
seems a decent price for a water proof camera. I just want something for taking pic in the rain really.
I had this when it first came out. Cool as f**k, but the pic quality just isn't there. Your phone, if a recent one, will take better pics unfortunately. No way to justify it unless you really are using it in super bad conditions.

Good luck taking underwater pictures with your phone - unless it's one of the Sony waterproof ones ...

Considering I wrote about using it in super bad conditions, you could extrapolate, you know, if you were sensible, that I would consider using it under water as worse than rain.

If you were sensible that is.

I see what you mean, but deliberately buying a camera for underwater work isn't what I would normally refer to as using it in "bad conditions" - I took that to mean more like being caught in a downpour or storm or a lot of dust. A proper sealed unit like this is not like being splashproof.

It's performance under water is only okay in any case, if someone was really looking for something to go scuba diving with or whatever probably they should look for something more recent with better quality.

Best thing about this camera were the picture modes. The colour picker on it is fantastic. Much better than the equivalent on my A7.

Anyway, if you're going exploring and spending cash on adventure trips, then it's a shame to not capture those moments in better quality. That's why I sold mine after a Norway trip, was disappointed later with the images.

I said super bad actually, don't be an editorialist.

I think a lot of people will buy this thinking that it's a nice bonus to have weatherproofing on the camera. And it is a nice bonus.

Matter of judgement isn't it really. I bought one thinking the weatherproofing would be a major need when started travelling again regularly, (we do a lot of climbing and low level mountaineering in all seasons) then quickly realised, actually no, the weather rarely rains so heavily that you need something like this apart from say the Highlands on home turf. Usually in those conditions where it's bucketing down, you have low-light too, which this camera doesn't handle well.

Very gimmicky, and really anyone serious will want to proof a good camera than to buy a proofed poor one. Nice entry level cam for mucking around under-water I suppose. Zip-lock bag and an iPhone 6x/Samsung Sx is a much better travel partner if you want to point and shoot in the rain.

Actually take what I said back now. Even in super bad conditions, still not a good cam because of low light performance. Image stabilisation not really good enough for use in say a kayak. So really, I guess that leaves scuba diving when there's a lot of light.

Here. A fantastic point and shoot, worth spending cash on proofing if doing underwater shots.

This thing can take serious pictures. There a MKIII version out, but not much difference.

Proofing for it if you really need to use it

You'll actually get photos you'll be proud of with this. I have a friend who uses it as her second camera when she's out exploring (she gets paid to blog) and her photos are often stunning from it.
