Users Report it is Easy to Use

Nine people concluded that the product was easy to use and three customers who reviewed it agreed that it was easy to use the menus.

  • It looks, feels & operates just like any normal camera, which is great when you "accidentally" drop it in the fish tank & observe your kids reaction! There are separate buttons to take photo & videos so there's no selecting the mode via a menu first which is great for capturing fleeting moments…
  • On my return my parents were impressed by the quality of picture, size of camera and how easy it was to use…
  • With this camera you don't have that problem, making it a dawdle to frame the subject (which is difficult enough in itself given that fish hardly sit still) and indeed to change settings underwater…
  • Very light & easy to use especially changing from photo to video…
  • Excellent camera, brilliant underwater photo's, easy to use…
  • The camera is easy to use and even with the basic settings u can make some nice pictures (if it was outside or under water…
  • Very easy to use, good quality pictures both underwater…
  • Used it non stop for 2 weeks on holiday taking pictures and filming underwater, so easy to use even the kids were taking some excellent photos with it…
  • It's easy to use and seems to have an incredibly wide angle for the size of it…
  • What a great little camera! The menu for different settings is really easy to access…
