Summary: Very good waterproof camera and flexible enough format to be as compact camera. Pulls a bit much battery with gps on, otherwise I have not noticed any cons with this camera. Mycket bra vattentät kamera och smidigt nog format för att ha som kompaktkamera. Drar lite mycket batteri med gps på, annars har jag inte märkt några nackdelar med denna kamera.
Summary: I am a professional mermaid ([...] and recently purchased this camera to use as a backstage camera at our photoshoots and events. So far it has gone underwater in pools, freshwater lakes and sea water, it has been left in the sand, dropped on a pebble beach, taken to altitude and depth... it is totally fine! No damage, no leaking, no problems. Easy to use, easy to upload photos etc.
Summary: Having completed months of research before a snorkel trip to the Maldives, I settled on this panasonic. It looks cool, feels good and with a floatable strap (purchased seperately) I was set up for a two week field test. I used the camera so much I had to charge the battery every night but I'm talking 4-5 hours of constant use with the camera left on.
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 other conditions. I simply point and shoot! I recommend this camera to one and all, enjoy.
Summary: I was so pleasantly surprised having returned from holiday in Indonesia and used this to film and photograph underwater, on land, in forests, during water rapids and for every day photography. I read reviews of this alongside all of the other higher rated water resistant cameras around this price mark, and I'm very happy I picked this one. Firstly, ensure that you actually activate the underwater setting, if you don't your pictures will come out all very blue or green.
Summary: I used to own a Cannon D10 and needed a change, I have used this camera kayaking in Briencon (south Alps) ski touring, mountaineering and climbing in the Mont Blanc range and im happy to say that it is brilliant and i have not had any problems with it. it has been submerged, beaten, frozen and has withstood all i can throw at it.
Summary: I wanted this camera for its ruggedness. I go on boats a lot and wanted something that could take the water and the knocks. Accidentally dropped it from about 3-4ft and it still works. Dunked it in a hot tub on our cruise ship - still works. Photos are great - several reviews go on about colour saturation but I think its fine. LCD seems easily enough seen in bright sunshine - just been in Caribbean and had no moments of not being able to see the screen.
Summary: Taken this camera surfing and it didn't leak. Very easy to use and tough, my 5 year old daughter can use it and has dropped it. The last good thing and the reason i bought it is that the Which? gives it the highest rating of a waterproof digital camera and it has very quick shutter reaction speeds. No annoying pressing the button wait 3 seconds......miss the action.....try again. Press the button and the camera operates. I plan to take it white water kayaking.
Summary: I do not write these reviews very often, if at all, however i am writing this review to compel others to seriously consider purchasing this camera if you are, an adventure/thrill seeker, a parent, and/or shrewd investor who doesn't appreciate shelling out countless pennies every time your camera gets a bit of dust or water splashed on it. I am all of the above and this camera has worked timelessly for me.
