by GepfromGreat little cameraI haven't used it too much but so far it has worked very well. The best thing about the case is that it uses either a 1/4-20 screw for a standard tripod mount or the Sony adapters/mounts. That means whatever you can stick a 1/4-20 bolt on, you can attach the camera housing.
The camera housing is small, lightweight but only allows you to start/stop the recording. You cannot access the other buttons from outside the case. This may be a problem later on. Since it is wifi enabled, I can change modes using my Smartphone app.
The smartphone app only lets you start/stop recording and change modes (video/time-lapse). You cannot switch to playback immediately. You can use the app to playback, but you have to take the camera out, press a few buttons to activate playback, then your phone can download the videos, then playback. A bit clunky. I hope Sony upgrades the app to handle recording and playback seemlessly.
This camera is mostly for recording video. The mic is inside the case, so the sound would be muffled. You cannot mount the camera without the case, unless you get clever (such as using adhesive-backed velcro). I would be a bit afraid to use the camera w/o case because the lens could get scratched. (The lens in the case is glass so it is less prone to scratching.)
There is NO video editing software included with this but it looks like there are plenty of very capable packages out there for less than a half Benny.
Besides time-lapse and HD recording, it also has 4x slow-mo recording. Very fun to play with.
I said "poor still image" only because is is 2megapixel, but that is plenty for using in time lapse to make HD video.
I look forward to trying it out underwater and skiing...

by ChelohifromGreat video qualityI bought the non wifi version at this same price 6 months ago. There's a great 45 minute video review online comparing this to the entry level Gopro and each has it's advantages. Either way that video is a thorough review.
I chose this one because for the same money as the Gopro, the Sony provides a better video quality. The Sony also provides a mic input. For my use, that's a great feature. I use this for casual video documentation of weekend trips so I rarely use the water proof case. I like the versatility of using it in wet conditions when desired but that is my primary use.
I will say I don't like the ease of which the battery/memory card door opens. It takes very little effort to open that thing. If you're using it in the shell, you won't have that issue.
Video and audio quality are very good. I haven't needed to use my external mic because the built in one is so good but I will when the situation calls for it.
Great little recorder!
