Summary: This item was suggested by a salesman at a very reputable electronics store. We didn't buy it on-site because they only had the orange color in stock so we ordered from Amazon where we got the color we wanted and a better price.
Summary: I am very disjointed with this camera. I thought the flip out feature would be cool and make it easier to take pictures, instead it just does the opposite. The glare is so bad that you can't see what you are taking pictures of.
Summary: I like the compact size. Filming is easy. Picture taking took a little practice - it was hard to push the shutter button, but I got the hang of it and pictures turned out great. I still like carrying my point and shoot with me, too. Always carry a backup for trips!
Summary: The camera is very good. The image is very good, sharp, really good. But, waterproof ? Really ? Do not feel like Bozo, after trying to use it under water. I will send this back. Panasonic is trying to deceive people. It is a shame !
Good Camcorder for outdoor use, no good for indor use with pour ligth

Summary: I already proved the waterproof quality and camera worked good. The image quality is good a day light but is not good for indoor use with low light conditions. Camera is easy to use, even with one hand, light and portable.
Summary: despite what all the other reviews have said using the camera indoors works just fine, the only time it struggles to focus is when it's almost completely dark. outdoors the camera works amazingly well! haven't tried it underwater yet but I'm kinda nervous and excited at the same time!
Summary: worked great for me. battery life for recording video maybe only a couple of hour, but picture taking battery may last all day, you will have to buy memory cards for video recording. it has internal memory good for picture taking but not enough for recording any thing.
Summary: We've had this camera for about two and half years. Paid top dollar for it, thought it was the best purchase I ever made. Last year we took it with us on a houseboating trip and it stopped working due to it's lack of waterproofing.
