I bought this camera in September but have some issues with it.


The most disturbing issue is that the lens fogs up (from the inside) when you are in colder climes (4 degrees centigrade or below), making it impossible to take photos in some cases. I'm assuming this is because it it airtight so any moisture within is trapped and condenses on the cold lens. I'm also no fan of Samsung's propriety connector which you need to charge the camera, but as the battery (and sd card) are removable - that is more of a minor annoyance.


On the plus side, it's child friendly (my 8 year has mastered it) and I can confirm that it is waterproof. I'm also very happy with the picture quality on outdoor shots.





So - a real mixed bag. If it wasn't for the foggy lens I'd be very happy, but as it is I need to buy yet another camera just for winter.....Very frustrating.

I bought this camera and I'm regreted because it leaks. I was using it at the beach, went for a swim, and made a small film. After that, I turned it off and since then it never went on again...
