Summary: After 3 days in switzerland in rain spoilt. gurantee not covers that . can not be repaired according customer service of panasonic. But can be raplaced for that i should pay the value of 550 swiss franks the real price in store was only 440 swiss frank
Summary: When moisture mysteriously entered this unit and shut it down, Panasonic service wanted 80 bucks to tell me it was unfixable and "corroded". I put it in the cuboard for a few months then plugged it in again. It turned on then had broken images for about an hour. No sound recorded. Then it came good and the images fixed themselves up. Still no sound - Maybe the "waterproof" microphone got water in it and, "corroded".
Summary: I can only reiterate the negative experiences above with this camera. The only difference is that I have not gone through the repair process which sounds like it will only end with a bad ending. DO NOT BUY THIS CAMERA. If you want a real waterproof camera, just get the Go Pro Hero camera.
Pros: When it works it's fine
Cons: Leaked water after few months - at snorkel depth
