Fun camera. More of a toy, though.

  • Summary: I took this white water rafting, and it held up like a champ. It doesn't shoot very crisp video, and considering the bright sun, conditions were pretty ideal, but the results were far from. The thing is though, that doesn't really matter. If you want to shoot decent video, buy a decent video camera. This thing, on the other hand, is waterproof! And extremely so!

Underwater Video Camera

  • Summary: I purchased this product to replace a Sanyo Xacti which leaked water and ruined the camera the second time I used it underwater despite complying with all the requirements. The Panasonic gives much better videos , is much smaller and appears waterproof (Not like the Sanyo one which in not satisfactory underwater.

Great for holidays!

  • Summary: This camcorder really is amazing! It can quite happily go with you on a trip to the beach, without you worrying about sand, water, etc breaking it. The picture quality is very good (both in and out of water) and the controls are really easy to use. It focuses quickly even when underwater, and the screen is very easy to see, so you know what you're filming. My only disappointment was the size of the pictures (yes, you can use it as a camera too!

A quality, rugged camera which performs well for all outdoor use

K. L. Wren "K L Wren", Amazon

  • Summary: Typical of Panasonic, this camcorder had a good, solid build with a quality feel and secure battery/SD card compartment. Start-up from standby mode is fast by simply opening the monitor which tilts smoothly through 180 degrees enabling it to be used at eye or waist level. A risk with waterproof cameras is they are more likely to be dropped into rivers or the sea and once on the river/sea bed they are likely to be lost and exceed their 1.5-2m waterproof range.

  • Excerpt: за такую цену сейчас бы получше купил бы.
  • Pros: хорошо снимает - мне пойдет
  • Cons: пишет на карту в формате MOD - можно переимновать в AVI - но все вытянутое по вертикали получается (( вопрос решился программой SDCard но изза этого долго не пользовался этой камерой

camcorder

  • Summary: Die Kamera ist für Neueinsteiger super. Sie ist klein Kompakt und leucht zu bedienen. Die Aufnahmen haben eine hohe Qualität und gute Auflösung. Nur die Unterwasserfunktion überzeugt nicht.Es gibt viel zu viele Sachen die man davor ,danach und während dem Tauchgang beachten muss. Von daher ist dies schwachsinn. Das beiliegende Schneidprogramm istfür den Anfang gut. Nur so richtig viele Sachen kann man damit nicht machen. Also muss man das noch extra besorgen.
