Great Buy! Exact Same Camera As The DMC-TS5.

  • Summary: This is the same camera as the DMC-TS5. I called in to Panasonic and spoke with a tech rep that looked into it for me. Absolutely no difference between the two cameras except the DMC-FT5 model is for sale in the UK market vs DMC-TS5 in the US. At time of writing the FT5 is about $100.00 cheaper than the TS5. Camera itself works great. Bought it as a rugged vacation camera. For the price you can't complain. Love the panoramic setting.

Great functions, but heavy and not always picking the correct automatic setting

  • Summary: Good camera with all the functionality we like, especially the Wi-Fi. The drawbacks are the weight and zoom buttons that cannot be operated easily with one hand. Also, it's not always picking the correct setting. My wife tried to take pictures where it wouldn't do the flash on the intelligence setting when it clearly needed the flash.

  • Summary: It should be waterproof, but it isn't. After 100 pictures under water, water came in and the camera broke down. And Panasonic will not repair it under warranty!!!!!

  • 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.

Good camera....pity about the case

Alan Bray, Amazon
23 February 2015
  • Summary: The camera and card are very good, I have not tried the tripod yet but it looks quite robust and sturdy. The case was very poor, far too rigid and bulky. The belt strapping broke after 2 weeks causing my camera to fall into a gutter at a garage without me noticing it. Fortunately I was able to retrieve the camera after a hasty phone call and a 60 mile round trip.
