Disadvantages: Unreliable battery life when taking videos
If you're going on holiday this year, then this is the camera for you. Especially if you have kids.
Going on holiday, I knew I'd need a camera I wouldn't leave lying around. I'm also extremely clumsy, so I expected to drop it a few times. I saw this camera and knew it was exactly what I needed.
The camera is waterproof to 10ft and shockproof to 5ft, and I can agree with that whole-heartedly. This means the user can take it in the pool, in the sea, to waterparks and drop it every now and then and not a single thing would happen to it, tried and tested. Just make sure you keep the side panel to the charger socket locked.
The camera takes beautiful pictures and videos on perfect quality. The zoom isn't the best, but it isn't a fancy professional quality camera, and you get what you pay for. The battery life is amazing when only taking photos, but taking videos drains it quite quickly. I would recommend buying a spare battery online.
The inside panel has a battery slot, which makes it easy to remove and replace the battery if you keep spares, 1 SD card slot (the bigger card), 1 SDHC card slot (the tiny card), and a usb slot for the charger.
The charger itself comes with a detatchable usb wire, so you can use the usb box on the charger to charge any phones or iPods also.
The product delivered exactly what it said it would, and it was worth every penny of the £110 I paid for it.
Another tip with cameras is to get the memory card (usually SD) online, not in shops. Look for a 16gb card, as you will never fill it up with normal use, but 8gb is usually too small.
If the battery life was better, it would get a perfect 5 star rating, but it will only get a 4 this time round.
Summary: Perfect family camera
