"Great Panasonic Action Camera."

Just used the camera for the first time snorkeling today. More than you'd likely use an action camera for really. Just take out the micro-SDHC card and plug it into a reader. This works well enough, except when I want to use it. Overall an okay Panasonic Action Camera that is probably more hype.
