Maybe they've fixed recently, but bought one a few years ago and when used properly it filled with water. Figured it was user error or a fluke. Got one as a gift for a honeymoon, and it took one photo then filled with water. Terrible customer service, never got a refund from sending it back to them for manufacturer defect. Avoid an 80 dollar paperweight, that floods.

These cameras have terrible reviews. Why is this getting so many upvotes?

Purchased two of these from Costco over a year ago for kids Xmas presents. Had the same experience, one of them fogged up really bad - so ended up returning them both. Glad Costco has a great return policy for situations like this. I can't recommend this product if you're thinking of taking it anywhere NEAR water. Can't speak to the out of water shots - as my kids only wanted to use them in the pool...

That's weird I've had one for years and have taken it on 5 cruises and multiple trips in the water with it and haven't had any issues. Maybe I got luck of the draw.

I bought one for a vacation about a month ago and same thing happened once I took it in the water. Stay away from this camera.

Agreed. I had a problem of dust building up INSIDE the camera lenses and you can see it in the pictures. I took care of the device too, but the cheap quality really got to me. I would never buy Fuji FinePIx cameras again..

I switched to GoPro and cell phones, and have not looked back..

I've had good luck with mine as well. Multiple days of snorkeling, beach, etc. Still working well.

Same with me! We bought one a few years back and it's been great! Takes wonderful pictures and we've taken it on several trips with no issues. We also have a boat and use it all summer long while swimming and it's been perfect.

Edit: Ours has been used in fresh and salt water with no problems.
