the camera takes good pictures under water. Out of water too, depending on the sun. Some photos seem quite purple, others very dark. The zoom is TERRIBLE.Videos are alright. Could be better but it's totally okay for the price. If you take a photo of something slow under water the photos turn out quite good but most photos of the wild dolphins i saw are blurry, I guess they were too fast.I'll add some photos so you can see for yourself.
