"nice underwater camera"
5 May 2011
Pros: Easy to use, underwater settings allow nice pictures in reasonably shallow water with good light. nice low light settings
Cons: reliability is suspect. after 10 or so snorkeling trips camera suddenly started making whirring noise and quit working despite carefully following instructions on keeping dry. I suspect an internal seal let loose. Camera was gull of water Panasonic replac
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.
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.
