  • Excerpt: In spite of bed reviews, this camera has performed flawlessly during a two weeks snorkelling trip The files posses good latitude for post processing, and the results have nothing to complain about. No leakage problems: I think that the cutsomesr that grumblw here just have not paid enough attention to shutting the "door" with a firm click.

Great images but mind the noise - the hammering noise!

  • Conclusion: I bought the FT4 about 4 hours ago and have taken some 240 pictures and a few videos at late afternoon, twilight, in the dark and indoors and I think that it exceeds my expectations with one exception - the hammering noise when recording video (and it's bad!). Good news is that I've figured out the what, why and when of it, so I can work around it, but it remains one of the biggest engineering oversights I've ever seen in a camera.

Great camera

Mr Matthew J Wheatley, Amazon

  • Summary: Good camera, with some nice 'toys' on it. Panoramic mode works well, as does stop motion and remote shooting with a smart phone is a nice feature. Overall picture quality isn't as good as a normal compact camera, but a reasonable pay-off for being able to use it udnerwater.

A bargain at current prices, but don't expect miracles

  • Summary: I ordered this, as my 3rd camera, for holidays where water sports are involved and was not disappointed. My other cameras are a Canon S90 and a Canon 40D SLR, this is my first Panasonic. It takes great photos in good light. With such a tiny sensor your creative options are fairly limited, but it does the job for holiday snaps. But really I bought it for beach and underwater use.

Does everything it needs to. Happy with it.

  • Summary: I bought this specifically to take in the ocean, both snorkelling and shallow diving to around ten metres. 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 a good idea. I also bought a fast 16GB memory card so I 'd have plenty of space for underwater movies.

Versatile and good quality robust camera, but don't expect much from the time-lapse feature

Mr. Jeff J. Smith, Amazon

  • Summary: I am pretty impressed with this camera, but it is early days for me with it, and I will try to remember to update this review after a little more experience. My initial opinion is that it is a well-built and strong camera and will indeed stand up to more than normal rough treatment. I have tried it on my bike and it withstood lots of juddering whilst taking video happily. I have used it indoors and outdoors and the results are definitely impressive.

wie erwartet

  • Summary: Die Kamera (mein Exemplar) ist wasserdicht (getestet bei 2m Tiefe) macht ordentliche Bilder, ist 1m heruntergefalen und geht immer noch einwandfrei. Klar ist es eine Knipse und keine Spiegelreflex - das wäre aber auch Äpfel mit Birnen verglichen. Einzig negativ aufgefallen ist 1. Das Gehäuse und des Armbändel haben sich nach ausgiebigem Salzwasserbad (Dubai) verfärbt und Flecken bekommen. 2. Der GPS-Sensor brauch lange um die aktuelle Position zu finden.

  • Excerpt: прочитал все ранее написанное другими пользователями данного фотика. отмечу про свой только то, что мне повезло насчет водонепроницаемости - проблем нет. в остальном см достоинства и недостатки. брал себе для дайвинга - снимать видео под водой. но до дайва я пока не добрался, плавал с фотиком ток в бассейне да на пляже, где глубина не более метра. не промок. отпишусь позже, как нырну на 10м.
  • Pros: компактен, быстрый старт, фотки для мыльницы не шедевры, но и плохими не назовешь. под водой проблем вроде как нет. нравится куча настроек
  • Cons: не нравится мазня при съемке видео - толи фокус не поспевает, толи 60кадров надо выставить - кто победил это, чиркните, как. Фотки при увеличении тоже быстро начинают расплываться - это из-за размера матрицы такое? съемка панорамы - просто издевательство - не юзайте эту фичу. сделайте несколько перехлестывающихся кадров и дома на компе склейте в сторонней проге.

  • Summary: Hola he comprado esta cámara hace 2 meses, en lineas generales me gusta bastante, pero comparando las fotos con otra cámara que tengo (kodak z950) la calidad deja que desear
