Unbeatable for the moneyMar 12, 2013
First, let me address the mad faces here stating false Advertisement. There is only one way to say this, these people are wrong and haven't done their research. Liquid Image originally certified this product at 10m/33ft, they have since done additional testing and certified it to 20m/66ft. They have changed the information on their page but many boxes still ship with paperwork stating they are only good to 10m, disregard this. I have personally taken mine to 117ft without issue.
Second let me address the Pros and Cons so that you can make your own choice.
High quality mask
Good design and seals
720x480 vid which is low end HD.
5MP isn't to shabby.
Standard AAA operation
Uses commonly available Micro SD cards
One size fits all(this mask fits me fine, but many people have issues fitting and this may not fit you)
Aiming is a joke, this is my biggest complaint, I have used this on 6 dives, and never really get the picture I want. I think this time I will just set it to video and record the whole dive.
Lighting is often an issue, you can attach lights to the side but expect to pay big for these.
For the price this unit is hard/impossible to beat. You can record your snorkel and scuba dives in remarkable quality for friends and family to see. Or so you can brag about your vacation on facebook. But I would compare this to a Polaroid camera of the 70s, you get the shots, just don't expect to be selling your video to national geographic.

gift for dadApr 05, 2012
The camera works great, only goes to 30 feet or less though. The advertisement is wrong which I knew before I ordered by reading the reviews and looking up the model number. However the video is clear and I think pretty cool. The only complaint my dad has is that the camera is angled down and wishes it worked deeper. If buying this for a gift I suggest spending the extra money on the camera that goes deeper so you have no regrets.

I used this snorkeling in Hanauma Bay HawaiiMar 11, 2014
It works really well, I went snorkeling for about 2 hours and took about 70 photos and some short movies. It is just a little bit trickyto use but just take a few minutes with it on the surface prior to snorkeling and it will be great. Pictures turned out great.

good for beginnersSep 16, 2012
The mask works both as a mask and a simple camra, the bigest problem that i have is that the lip pieace come down to far and when im snorkling water comes in, the imaging is a little funny a so it make it hard to get the exact pick u want but it nice to be able to snap shots with ur hands free. the vid is good to but the audio is a little choppie from the water, would be nice is there was a thumb swith to sap the pics. The next step up for masks would be better in case i want to dive but free diveing it works just fine.

Great for the money but...Oct 16, 2012
By Steve Walsh
I purchased two of these, (different models) one for my wife to snorkel with and this one for scuba. I used them both in Roatan where the water visibility was excellent. My wifes model (Liquid Image 304 XSC Explorer Series 8.0 MP) did not work at all and froze after the third picture on several occations. The quality of the pictures on mine was not great, nor was the video quality great, but it was also not terrible, considering the price of the equipment. It was good enough to capture the moment, but if you're looking for awesome pictures, then you'll need to spend much more money for better quality equipement. Operating the modes (Video or Photo) was not always as easy as one would think, although after a few days I did get used to it. In the bright sunlight and great visibility of the Caribbean it was hard to tell which camera mode you were in - Red for Camera and Blue for Video, which resulted in several disappointing results.
Another issue I found was the depth restriction of 60'. If you only plan to dive reefs then this is adequate, but if you go over the wall or do any wreck dives then you'll likely need something that can handle deeper depths.
In short I would say if you're looking for an inexpensive novel camera solution this is a good option for the money. If you want to take GREAT photo or video, you need to spend a lot more.
