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

E. Deraspe, Amazon
21 January 2015
  • 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.

User Review

  • 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.

Reasonable, but let down by clunky software

AlexG, Amazon
10 October 2014
  • Summary: I bought this rather than the Olympus TG-3, which I was also considering, as it's a bit cheaper and the images posted in reviews seemed slightly better to me, e.g. colours less saturated, in particular the video quality.

Not perfect

Mr. Martin Brown, Amazon
14 June 2014
  • Summary: Yes, they go underwater and sometimes they leak. Frankly, the seals are not very obvious and there is no way of silicon greasing them like on a proper waterproof enclosure. It is not surprising that some people have had problems. It seems a bit of a lottery to me whether it leaks or not.

Good but spoiled non working wireless connection

Rn Hartley "ArchiPlanner", Amazon
4 October 2013
  • Summary: If I'd realised that the wireless connection wouldn't work I'd have bought a cheaper version. It is solidly made and takes good pictures.

Waterproof shockproof

David, Amazon
7 August 2013
  • Summary: I had read that the image may be slightly less than other compacts but wanted one to use on the beach or in a bar where spilt drinks wouldn't ruin it. Dark rooms come out very bright and the photos all have a red cast as though everybody has been in the sun too long.

Disappointed

ben sargent, Amazon
6 July 2013
  • Summary: Good camera. But few things I wasn't happy with. You can hear a whirring noise on playback of videos. Not sure if this was just my model? Also, I didn't find the picture quality that great. I took photos on a golf course on a grey day, and the pictures looked very washed out and milky. Anyway.
