This little camera is a great addition to my travels. I used it on a trip to the Galápagos Islands where we snorkeled 2-3 times a day. I was able to capture some great underwater pics. It's easy to change modes so you can get some close ups. On land I didn't like it as the zoom is limited and close ups become too grainy. I will most likely use this just for water and continue to carry a different point and shoot for land. It's super fun to have this camera on hand for those times you could get wet. I'm taking it on a river rafting trip next. I recommend sliding a big- holed bead(like the type used on Pandora bracelets) onto the strap so you can cinch the strap tightly to your wrist.
I was already familiar with the Panasonic Lumix. I had a smaller version that was given to me. I purchased this camera with the old one in mind. I liked the fact that the camera had 32GB of storage and it came with an Accessory Bundle. She was truly surprised and pleased to get the camera for her birthday.
