Waterproof, Durable, But So-So Results

Summary: This camera works well for what is designed for, as in a good point and shoot waterproof camera that can stand up to abuse from the elements. The downside is that it takes a lot of experimenting with the voluminous settings to get quality results, and usually you don't know what you got until you...
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.
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...
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
Summary: Having owned this camera for about 8 months, I've taken several thousand pictures without a glitch. During my recent trip snorkeling, the camera met its end in salt water. All precautions were taken to ensure that lint, hair or sand was not inside the silicone liners.
Summary: I bought this camera about 6 months ago for use around and in water. I used it on a couple of trips to the Caribbean as well as sea kayaking around my house. Picture quality was good and a lot of the presets worked well, especially water, motion, and sunset/night photography.
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...
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. battery life good and goos=d size but just not to my personal taste
