It is important to note that this is a snorkel-only mask. The depth rating is only fifteen feet. Because of the integrated camera, it is slightly bulkier than a regular dive mask -- but once it is on and you're in the water, it is barely different from a plain two-panel mask. The biggest difference from a regular mask are the crosshairs painted onto the glass for targeting your shots. Yes, it's a digital camera, but no, there's no LCD screen for framing or review. Just line up the crosshairs and press the shutter button by your right temple. A tiny beep indicates still image capture. That same button will also begin video capture, if you've toggled into video mode. You swap between video and still capture mode by tapping the on/off button. An LED shines into the top of the right eye window -- red is still, blue is video. The red light re-lights in still image capture to indicate the buffer is clear, while the blue light blinks to indicate video recording. In very bright sunlight conditions in clear water, it can be challenging to "read" the colored lights at the edge of your vision to confirm mode and status.
