not waterproof

  • 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!!!!!

NOT IN THE LEAST BIT SHOCKPROOF

29 October 2013
  • Summary: This camera claims to be shockproof up to 2.2 metres and it simply isn't. I dropped it going very slowly on a bike ride and it longer works correctly. I requested a refund from Panasonic as I feel misled having purchased a device that I believed would stand up that claim and they have refused.

Outrageous Price for a Disposable Camera!

E A CLARKE, Amazon
29 October 2013
  • Summary: Other than the fact that you get a really annoying sound when taking videos and the timing of the recording means that you lose the last 2 seconds prior to you pressing the stop button this camera was proving to be extremely versatile.

failed

skydancer, Amazon
29 October 2013
  • Summary: Although I was careful and thought I had followed the instructions ..... this camera flooded when I was snorkelling after 1 month's use .... very disappointed .... one needs to take GREAT care .... but you still only know whether it is not OK ... when it floods ... and then it is too late .

Leaked in sea water

YAG67, Amazon
13 June 2013
  • Summary: I purchased the camera from Amazon.fr to complement my SLR for photos in the mountains, under water etc. I was a little apprehensive after reading earlier reviews on FT3/FT4 and the significant number of failures when used in salt water, but the optical quality attracted me.

schöne Bescherung..

Mirjam Breitenbach, Amazon
9 February 2015
  • Summary: Eine der besten Kameras die ich je hatte. Bis ich sie unter Wasser benutzt habe. Trotz befolgen aller Sicherheitsmaßnahmen, hat sie jetzt einen Totalschaden. Keiner weiß warum, selbst Panasonic nicht. Schade, dass mein Thailand Urlaub so starten musste.

Akku viel zu schwach!!!

Jürgen, Amazon
13 June 2014
  • Summary: Tolle Kamera, tolle Bilder aber der Akku ist zu schwach! Auch ohne GPS und Wlan max. 3 Std !! Also nix für einen Tagesausflug am Strand oder am Berg dann wenn man die schönsten Bilder machen will ist alles leer. Selbst mit einem 2 Akku den ich habe kannst keinen ganzen Tag die Kamera verwenden!

Bildrauschen!

Rainer Kvapil, Amazon
26 February 2014
  • Summary: Ich bin masslos enttäuscht von dieser Kamera. Vielleicht habe ich ein "Montagsmodell" erwischt, denn sonst bin ich eigentlich ein Lumix Fan und bisher immer zufrieden mit der Bildqualität meiner Panasonic Kameras gewesen. Die FT5 hatte ich für mein Hobby, dem Schnorcheln angeschafft.
