Summary: I recently replaced an Olympus Tough who accompanied me for many years by the Panasonic for its waterproof characteristics and for its optical quality. Unfortunately on my last trip it broke down: it fails to power on ever since. So I brought it to Panasonic for repair under the warranty.

I must say that I'm impressed with the robustness of it, although I managed to get some light scratches on the LCD screen (not sure how) so maybe adding a stick-on screen protector there may be...
Summary: I will have to wait, till after my holiday, to review it properly, but it works just fine on the odd occasions, when I have used it up to now. Obviously I haven't tried it in wet conditions yet, but having the "Waterproof" guarantee, it has given me the confidence, not to worry, about any weather or...
Summary: Purchased this camera with some trepidation due to a couple of the reviews I'd read that implied it had quickly leaked. I had no such problem. The camera has been snorkelling in the Pacific Ocean and used by children taking pictures of each other under water in the swimming pool with really good...
