Leaks!

PostedMay 19, 2013
No, I do not recommend this product.
I bought one of these a bit over a year ago when it was on sale. Unfortunately, while I did use it to take a few videos and pictures, I didn't use it under water until after the warranty expired.
Bad decision... The FIRST time I took it under water in the Caribbean it didn't work. I though that a bit odd until I came up and discovered that it was full of water!
All the doors were closed properly but it still leaked like sieve!
I contacted Samsung but no luck since it was out of warranty.
I could see that it might wear out over time, but I had not abused it or really even used it much. Obviously, it should not have leaked the very first time under water!
So not only did I lose my investment in the camera, I didn't get the pictures I was expecting on my cruise!
Don't buy this!
Cons:leaks like sieve

Good Tool

Yes, I would recommend this product
I bought this product after I jumped in the pool with my flip vedeo camera. It's a nice product easy to use quick and convenient. Great for keeping up with the kids and family. Three drawbacks are the anti shake isn't that great 2nd the time is cut dramatically when on the 1020 recording mode and I found the Flip software more friendly than the samsung.
Pros:family camera
