We chew through a lot of the $300 tough cameras, using them daily on the water, and we're onto out third AW1 now, all replaced under warranty with a waterproofing problem. Way back when it was released I figured $1000 for an on-water camera was asking for problems....

Used them for quite a few years including underwater. No problems or failures except my old Sony tX10. The tripod screw in the base eventually stripped due to the constant wear and tear mounting it on the pole and handle. One good feature of these cameras is the ability to shoot HD video and and that same time take 12m pixels stills. Certainly not DSLR quality photos but the video is great.
Wish Sony would bring out a 4K version.
