Summary: I bought this little gem in HK about 15 months ago and it has been all round the world with me in all kinds of climatic conditions, from -10C to 42C, above water mostly, but occasionally in the sea and also my swimming pool here in Brazil.
Pros: It is the best "Take Anywhere" camera on the market at a reasonable price
Excerpt: Panasonic DMC-FT20EB-A Rugged Camera with LEICA Lens and HD Movie - Blue (16.1MP, 4x Optical Zoom) This is not our first digital camera , in fact I think it is about our sixth or seventh but our smallest camera is starting to be a bit unreliable and that is the one we take to restaurants and round...
Summary: I looked here first , as I am a big Amazon supporter, but I found a blue one, brand new in a scuffed box for just 85 quid on Ebay. Tsk tsk....... But what a great camera this is for the beach, the pool, the desert and the rain in England.
Summary: 1. Underwater, the reason I bought it....great 2. The rest are good to great. The battery life is also very good. As with all battery operated devices, turn it off when not in use and wait until you get back to the hotel/villa to trawl through pictures and footage, your on holiday , enjoy the views...
Summary: Brought this camera for our son's 11 birthday. He found it extremely easy to use. Really enjoyed being able to use it snorkelling and took some great photos. Only viewed them on the camera so far but the picture quality seems as good if not better than other similar sized cameras we have used.
Summary: good price, works well underwater, arrived in 2 days (I was told it would be 1 week), much sturdier than previous cameras because there is no external zoom so no danger of dropping it/ getting sand trapped in it and getting the dreaded "lens error"
