Ok for regular home use, photo clarity not as expected
by Rohit Reddy on 2012-12-21
I got this camera for as a gift for my dad and using at home, and since its waterproof, it appeal to me as worth buying. But after a few days using it, I felt that though its water and everything else, it wasn't worth a buy for me (I'm used to DLSRs), as photo clarity and colors tones are not very good and button are hard to press. Overall, its a ok-ok camera for beginners and people whose taste in photography is developing, but I wouldn't recommend it for people who are slightly keen on photography.
Waterproof camera for creativity

I have been using SLR for many years . But do not compare the image quality of SLR or even your point and shoot.
But what requires is ur creativity. If your kid is using you can forget about as it is strong and water proof. You need to have lot of spare AA battery to use it. But other wise cheap camera for your under water photography

This camera came with pouch, 4GB (series 4) card, 2 AA cells, 2AA rechargeable cells and a charger. Value for money!!!
Clarity is good in daylight. Night shots are grainy, even with the flash. Haven't tried the underwater feature yet. One issue I noticed is that its not able to record a message with a picture as given in the camera manual.
I bought this camera for my 6 years old daughter. She is absolutely thrilled with her 'own' camera. The menus are kid friendly and she learnt to use it within minutes. Well, she had used a Konika Minolta point-and-shoot for last year and a half which she spoilt after dropping it many times. Fortunately, Nikon S30 is shock proof and waterproof! Hopefully, it'll last a kids handling longer than her earlier camera.

Have been using this for 5 months now. Mostly used by my wife for taking my 2-year old son's snaps/videos. Which means, there is no point in having a high-end camera.
1. Handy and easy to use for beginners
2. Good build quality. Feels quite strong in your hands
3. Shock and water proof - Have not tested it yet!!!
1. Battery eater! Ships with a pair of rechargeable batteries. Keep a charger and a couple of extra batteries handy if you are planning a trip
2. Extremely basic. Hardly anything that you can customize. If you have used a medium-end or high-end camera, reconsider buying this. This might be good only for your little kid.
Good camera for using in water and in daytime, but not otherwise

Camera quality is reasonably good, though a bit bulkier than other point and shoots in the price range of 5 to 6K.
If you frequent beaches, take photo's during rains and your kids want to handle a camera, then think no more, just buy this one.
Digital camera's are not so robust, so I got this one hoping that it will last longer, and it works just fine even when my Kid is using it.
It is really bad for night use. Doesn't click on time and causes lot of blurring. I had to purchase a regular digital camera for this.

I had searched a dozen shops & for couple of years for water proof camera & it finally ended at flipkart. I guess there are hardly any camera brands which offer you a water proof feature. I had heard about sony providing a water proof casing, but that costed about 4000 rupees. Also, when I enquired about the same in their showrooms, they probably were not aware or sony had stopped manufacturing the same.
Flipkart was a savior for me! This model apparently is not available with retailors/ shopkeers! I love flipkart for this.
As for the camera, this works perfectly fine in water, tried & tested. Maynot produce great pictures as a sony/ canon etc digicam, but then that’s not its usp. True value for money.
Must buy for water lovers!
