My grandmother bought me this camera for Christmas (As I was the one who picked it out) and I must say I am not happy with it. The pictures turn out blurry, even with trying different settings. Occasionally a few pictures will turn out semi decent, but most are horrible. Very poor quality. And when you zoom in, the pictures get blurrier. The next time I tried to use it, I tried turning it on, it wouldn't work. I figured maybe the batteries were dead, so I went ahead and put two brand new batteries in and tried it. At first, nothing happened. It wouldn't turn on. I tried it a few more times before it finally blinked and then shut off, blinked and shut off and did it again.
I would not recommend this camera to anybody. I wish I could return it but sadly thinking it would be a decent working camera, I threw away the box it came in & now I regret it. Well, I just thought I'd help make your decision as to should I buy this camera? A little bit easier.
Upon first water use of this camera, the batteries exploded (the ones that came with the camera), water entered the battery chamber; although it was completely closed & sealed, leaving the camera useless for the duration of my vacation. You don't even get what you pay for. I would never recommend this to anyone I remotely cared for. The quality of the photos are garbage at best.
Not worth the money or waste of time to use piece of junk. The only good picture it took was a couple underwater, other than that they turn out fuzzy blurry hard to see. Works when it wants and forget about trying to get ahold of VistaQuest they never return your call.
I bought this because it was 12 megapixels.. I bought before our trip to Hawaii... I used it once, I was not impressed-took pictures of turtles underwater, then took it to Molokini for fish and was very unhappy.. the pictures were fuzzy and not bright or crisp. Then, tried to use out of water and Terrible results.. I am going to try to sell on ebay or give it away... Our brother had an Olympus that he paid $300 for, and if you're going to rely on good quality for underwater, spend the money and get a good one-we definitely will next time we need one. Or maybe try disposable?-some say those are good.
This was a total waste of money...Pictures are not the best. You can only take about 3-4 pictures then it powers down. I put 2 brand new batteries in it and was still only able to take about 4 pictures. Also tried contacting Vista Quest and no reply, and no help on the website. I would DEFINITELY NOT recommend this to anyone.
All pictures are blurd. I tried all settings and even formating the disk. I plan to return it.
HAVING A HARD TIME OPENING THE DOOR TO THE BATTERY.. PLEASE HELP ME. It is Sunday so the tech support is closed.. I will be calling tech support tomorrow, if they can't help me , I will have to return the product. The manual was not helpful.. The manual points out where the battery is located but the latch will not open the battery door.
This camera is great! ..takes excellent pics under water ..
Perfect gift for christmas ..I bought 4 of them..
I highly recommended ..
Wow, if anything can be wrong about a camera, it's all in this one. No focus, no flash when needed, rarely powers up, no way to keep the batteries in whilc connecting to the computer to upload pics. I think it's safe to say that this just really isn't a camera. I'm not sure what it really is, but it's not a camera.
I can't figure this camera out for the life of me and it came with little to no directions. Looking online now for a manual but so far no luck. Came here to see if anyone else was having trouble and EVERYONE who put this at 1 star is 101% correct. when and if i find a manual, I'll post it here unless I'm completely frustrated and at this rate, I most likely will be. Waste of money and time.
A friend got this for me as a birthday gift and as embarrassing as it will be, I must be honest. she wondered why i have not brought it around. Well it is because I have no way to USE it as it is complicated and no manual. We can hopefully take it back soon.
Gave it to friends that have 3 kids and they love it.
I took this camera with me to a hockey game and the pictures turned out better than expected!
Daughter loves it!
