I bought this camera about four months ago in Australia (I did forget about the Australian lead though). The key reasons I bought is was because it was waterproof and shock proof. The camera does have alot of features, such as the different modes to take a picture, e.g. indoors, through a window and landscape etc. Also the fact that it is 7.1 mega pixals. It is also a slim camera. However, on the downside I dont think that the picture quality is that good, and if you want to take a picture quickly this is difficult.
