About Me Semi-Pro Photographer
Very rugged, waterproof
Outdoor enthusiast 'must have'
from Toms River, NJ
Use primarily during outdoor recreation, particularly fishing and snow skiing. High speed continuous shooting mode great for action photography. Slight noise in indoor low light conditions - typical of most, if not all, point and shoot digitals. Very rugged, I own 3 different models of this camera, my first being a W10 that I use at work for construction photography. It is about 6 yrs old, thoroughly abused, and still works great!
Perfect aerial platform camera
from Austin, TX
Camera was recommended to me by a Professional photographer from the UK, for Aerial pictures taken using a Mikrokopter, very high quality pictures and the interval shooting option works perfect
