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.

Summary: mine broke after working fine it was locked and i imagine it is because of some water leak ....but how can you contest it? it comes down to your word against theres ...... i met a few people along the may with similar issues my advise is just don't buy this it really isn't that reliable for swimming...
Summary: Bought one from Amazon, looks and feels good, great pics and working GPS, however leaked in 1m when snorkling, service centre kindly sent a replacement, treated it with kids gloves, but second one leaked too, no replacement, lost my money, dont buy this rubbish.
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.
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 .
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.
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.
Summary: D'abord attiré pour les commentaires élogieux, j'ai sauté le pas. J'ai acheté cet appareil. Et puis un jour l'intérieur a pris l'eau. Quelqu'un pourra dire que j'avais mal nettoyé l'appareil lors de la précédente utilisation. Rien de tout cela.
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!
