    Strengths:    Waterproof, Compact. Takes sharp photos with great color. Focus is fairly quick (in bright conditions). Manual focus is possible.

    Weaknesses:    Display is difficult to see in daylight. Battery life is only fair, especially if you use flash. Low light focusing is only fair.

    Bottom Line:   
    This is a fine little camera to take hiking or biking. It is water and dust proof and has been quite durable for me. The picure quality is quite good.
