Great Camera. But no support from Panasonic or Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this back late 2010 and took it with me on a trip to Costa Rica. Had it in the pool, beach and even zip lining over the rain forest! Beautiful photos and videos. Like other have said. Water spots can be an issue. But that is true of any water proof camera. I use to have a Cannon in a water proof case. And I'd get water spots all the time. Less than a year later. It died. I emailed Panasonic a few times and never got a response back.

  • Summary: WARNING: waterproof compact digital cameras are really only "splash-proof" This is the second "waterproof" compact digital I have tried and so far it's the second failure. I do a lot of stuff in and near the water and I wanted a camera that would help me capture some of the fantastic experiences I've had. I jumped on the Olympus 770SW a few years ago when I saw it in a duty free shop in Japan. It was the first of it's kind I believe.
  • Pros: great around the water, image quality quite good, auto focus good
  • Cons: controls are a bit too small, not good in glare situations, NOT "waterproof" to the manufacturer's specs

  • Excerpt: Equal or better image quality is available within the Lumix stable and for far less money! The only benefit of buying this camera is the waterproof housing, so unless you really plan to dunk your camera, think again... Considering the miniscule lens, the zoom range, sharpness and macro capability are pretty good and even the way it handles contrast is commendable. Metering and exposure are reasonably good.

Not strictly my camera....

  • Summary: The camera was bought as a gift for my son, who specifially requested a WATERPROOF camera. When I saw the shots, they looked a bit gritty/grainy to me (it's called noise in digital-land, apparently)...but he is happy enough.

  • Summary: Solid well made but not easy to use in my hands - just didn't feel right - photos and video good but menus not intuitive and take a lot of searching.

gemischte Gefühle...

  • Summary: Zunächst ein genereller Hinweis zu "wasserdichten" Kompaktkameras Jeder, der eine sog. "wasserdichte" Kompaktkamera kauft, sollte sich darüber im klaren sein, dass das Eindringen von Wasser KEIN Garantiefall ist, und dass eine Reparatur oft den Wert der Kamera übersteigt. Mir ist bereits in 2 solcher Kameras Wasser eingedrungen, obwohl ich der Meinung bin, sehr sorgfältig vorgegangen zu sein.

Un poco desilusionado...

  • Summary: Hola a tod@s, Solo comentar que estaba muy ilusionado por la compra de la dmc-ft2 y puesta a prueba después de un mes, me parece algo floja. Tengo una olympus u720sw de 7,1, resistente al agua 3m y a golpes 1,5. Empiezo a ver que aparece en el mercado una cámara que la ponen como la todo-terreno de las compactas. Pues bien, después de un un uso doméstico y poniendola a prueba, puedo decir cosas positivas y cosas negativas.
