great when it worked
Great For Scuba And Snow
Best Uses
This camera was great, i used it each time i went snowboarding and when scuba diving (a few other things here and there as well). I was very satisfied with this until one day it just stopped working. So while this product is great, it is only great while it lasts. The company does not seemed too concerned about the failure as they have not done much (offered a discount on a new one). It should be noted the camera lasted a couple years, but the amount of time actually on/in use was minimal (<50 hours). Currently looking into alternatives as i would rather not spend several hundred dollars on something that is expected to spontaneously fail.
How long have you owned it:
