  • Excerpt: This review doesn't cover the Lumix FT5's photo quality (which is of course very important and I think, from a first impression point of view, is very good). Its design for rough situations (waterproof, shock resistant etc.) is convincing and seems well done. This is not covered here either. BUT Panasonic seems to know how to make cameras, not Wifi devices... If you buy this camera with great expectations on a sleek Wifi setup, try again. The speed of user menus is slow.

  • Summary: Disagree its promises. Ok take pictures, but is not 100% waterproof. Even though I used it according to the instructions where did the water damage after a snorkelling trip. When I submit the refuse Panasonic cook it, pointing out that I handled it wrong, which is not true. Not only that it is not waterproof as promised as laws not the camera. My conclusion is simply, Do not buy it, you're throwing money down the drain! Håller inte vad den lovar.

  • Summary: Great camera for snorkeling. Much faster autofocus than our one year older Nikon Coolpix AW-100. The camera feels rappers and the percentage of blurred images from snorkeling excursions are somewhat less with this. Our ~ 7 years older Olympus 1030 SW had a significantly better depth gauge. The overall impression is that this is the best snorkeling camera we owned.

Great compact camera

  • Summary: It's a bit chunkier than my previous model, but it still fits in a pocket comfortably. Features manual and "P" settings, so it isn't just a point and press. There is a "treatment" menu built in if you want to edit. The lens seems to cope with macro and landscape equally well. The only real negative is that it takes quite a while from turning on to taking a picture - especially as I can't get rid of the message about the memory card, which isn't Panasonic and it comes up...

Good camera if you need a waterproof one.

  • Summary: I spent a long time reading reviews on the internet about waterproof cameras and found the reviews confusing and contradictory at times. My shortlist selected on specification was the Olympus Tough and this Panasonic Lumix. In the end, reviewers experiences of leaks with the Olympus put me off that model.

  • Summary: In your review how did the FT5 go in bright scenes and particularly anything towards the sun (ie. not at the sun). I am hoping for an improvement here as I have found the FT3 to be particularly bad. Cheers Simon.
