Summary: I have just been to red sea Egypt and used this camera for first time, well it is so easy to use , the zoom is very adequate, and I got no blurred pics , all pics came out soooo good . this is a great little camera for underwater .
Summary: Bought for my daughter as she wanted to get some underwater shots on holiday. we're not experts by any means but in our opinion pictures she took were of great quality both in and out of water. She's no photographer but if you're a novice like her then I'm sure you'll be pleased with the results. Colours were sharp and pictures very clear.
Best camera for those that do not want quality compromised.

Summary: Best camera for those that do not want quality compromised. Just does everything you want for a robust, water tight camera. Went to Africa and snorkelled in Lake Malawi; video and pictures were great underwater! The zoom is good and the quality overall was excellent. Would not hesitate and buy another one if this ever failed.
Summary: Very clear and easy to use. The underwater photos are fantastic. I am a bit nervous every time I close the side section as you have to make sure there is no dust. But so far so good. It is a great product and very user friendly.
Summary: Very solid build quality makes this a no hassle camera to take out and about with our children. With other digital cameras I was worried about dropping them or getting grit stuck in moving lens parts. On two trips I got stuck with no camera because I dropped and broke more flimsy cameras. I'm confident I won't get thos problems with this one.
Bought for my daughter to take pictures when swimming and when on holiday

Summary: Really impressed with this camera. It is easy to use, takes excellent pictures and, so far, has lived up to its waterproof credentials. My 8 year old daughter soon got the hang of it and was eating up memory cards creating videos of her and her brother playing etc. I've got a Pentax Optio waterpoorf camera (the first version) and this Panasonic takes far better pictures - though it may not be quite so rugged.
Summary: Very very very easy to use. Produced Fantastic Pictures. Choice of two underwater settings according to the depth. The quality of the pictures unbelievable. Easy to switch to video mode. For snorkelling/diving I think this is perfect. Not the same range of features on dry land that I would want so recommend for underwater use. Nevertheless picture quality on land was equally good.
Summary: Got this camera so that I could take it into the Sea with me so it wouldn't get stolen. Very good camera - nice quality picture, only let down is zoom isn't very good. Used in hot tubs, swimming pools, lakes and the sea and had no problem with it. Very easy to clean and has lots of nice settings on the camera. Worth the money and it was delivered within 2 days and I only picked standard delivery. Very good camera!
