Absolutly agree. I loaned one to my son to take snowboarding and have never got it back. I got a new one and have used it in VERY harsh environments (Kids pool party, Sea spray, blown ash from Bar-b-Que)
Wash it under the tap, give it a shake and it's good as new.
Picture Quality is VERY good and it is extreamly easy to use.
