Rated 1 out of 5 by beast11 Foods while diving. Worthless for SCUBA
This camera is almost guaranteed to flood while diving. Mine flooded at 90 feet and I have seen 3 others flood at 80 to 90 feet. I know of several successful dives to 50 feet but obviously the camera is over rated and has a design flaw. When I sent the camera into Sony there was no explanation as to why it flooded. They did replace the camera but it also flooded.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Dralion Video always fails.
I bought this camera with on purpose in mind, the GPS function to help with my cycling training. Every ride I have taken it on so far (5 rides) something happens to the camera about 30 minutes in.
It shows that it is recording the rides, but when I get home to look at my route, I usually get 25-30 minutes of usable video then 4 or 5 "broken" video links that should be the rest of my ride. My memory card even shows that about 17 gigs have been used, but I get to see none of it. Even my little cheap $35 Vivitar action cam lasts a whole ride. At this moment I would not recommend this to any cyclists that would want to record rides, especially for safety purposes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Seikidokid Great Camera
Great camera, be careful though the waterproof case that comes with the camera is only good down to 15 ft or so. You need to purchase the other waterproof case to be waterproof below 180 ft.
Very happy with the camera great video.

Rated 4 out of 5 by EP320 Good but missing some features
The camera is good and video quality very good. However, it does feel like the software is incomplete in some cases. You cannot delete videos you've shot, either from within the camera menu or from the computer, you have to format the card. So if you shoot a movie by mistake, you cannot delete it.
Another problem I found is using it with a compatible smart phone. I've tried it both with an iPhone and Sony Xperia phone. In both cases it works well, however, be sure to disable your WiFi connection on the phone after use, or else the camera will stay connected to your phone and as a result, it will not auto-sleep. This can cause the battery of the camera to drain very quickly. Not great especially since you might have the camera mounted to your helmet and used your phone to get the right angle. Afterwards, if you do not kill the Wifi on your phone completely, the camera will stay on and you'll never know. Then when it's time to take a new shot, it could be out of batteries.
