My son bought this camera in the States and promptly lost the receipt. It stopped working after a couple of months. He'd used it whilst swimming in the sea, snowboarding and for underwater shots in a swimming pool, but never below 3'-4'. As he had no proof of purchase for the guarantee he opened it to check it out himself, found plenty of evidence of water leakage, corrosion all over the circuit board etc. The pictures it produced were no better than from a camera half the price. Given that one is paying for the waterproof feature it was a great disappointment and consigned to the dustbin.
