    I would not buy another Intova. Mine gave poor pictures and ate batteries in ten mins.

    I've just got one. Seems great so far. Have not had much use yet. Above water is great. Light levels are good below. Used it to 38m and no problems.

    Also the small screen is great for killing deco time reviewing pics etc.

    Some of the early Intova were shockingly bad with crap quality and ate batteries before you even got in the water. Their strobes were even worse.
    Later models (2011) were getting better but their 'HD' video recording was jerky.
    I've not seen footage or used a 2012 model yet. My mates are on a liveaboard this week with a few of the latest Intova offerings so I'll hopefully see some photos and video soon to compare with.

    From a personal view Intova seem to be developing on the fly from what I've seen and experienced and therefore I stick with a mainstream manufacturer (Canon in my case) for my UW cameras who has a proven track record.

    Ok, let's see if I can keep up with Da youff. Just set up an You Ya Tube account and shoved up a vid, let's see if it works.
