Good value, good photos

Donna Spence, Amazon
15 August 2015
  • Summary: I bought this primarily as an underwater camera. Having always used a waterproof encasement on previous cameras, the closure mechanism of the Lumix made me a little nervous, but it seemed to work fine, In a sandy area I had to be especially careful, as the fine sand does migrate into the crevices.

Great camera. Bit inconsistent with white balance and exposure but very tough

  • Summary: I purchased this to take on a week-long Caribbean snorkeling vacation. I used it for many hours underwater as well as many above water and it worked very well. It took a number of bumps on rocks and things (in and out of the water) and came out unscathed and never had a water leak.

Nice Camera

  • Summary: Nice camera. It is shock proof, I dropped it out of my belt case on the side walk, no damage. Worked well underwater. Color balance is good, but you have to play with the scene selection.

Great for the handbag!

  • Summary: Really sturdy but having to disable the 'close back' warning every time I turn it on is very annoying. Not sure the picture quality is as good as the TZ60 either
  • Pros: Durable, Lightweight
  • Cons: Constantly Have To Cancel, Warning Disable Every Tim

Just Brilliant

  • Summary: Everything from the build quality to the great photos, the quick GPS locations, the Wifi including the simple to use Panasonic app, its a great camera. Unfortunately it isn't theft proof and as my insurance only covers half the cost, i will have to save up for a replacement.Also worth noting that...

Neat little indestructible camera

djcharley, WEX

  • Summary: This a great camera for Travel or Adventurous activities. I liked the fact that you can choose manual settings (novel for a indestructible compact) although it does not allow the maximum shutter speed only up to 4sec and the aperture setting is limited.
  • Pros: Durable, Great Features, Great Picture Quality, Lightweight, Simple Controls

Does everything brilliantly and the torch feature is useful in my line ...

Anthony S., Amazon

  • Summary: Purchased this camera for work after using Olympus for 5+ years. Would give 5 * if it charged via USB. Does everything brilliantly and the torch feature is useful in my line of work (Building inspections) Haven't had a fault with it in 2 years and it suffers a fair amount of abuse on site work.

Really good camera, but the menu is slightly confusing

Marc, Amazon
24 September 2013
  • Summary: Really good camera, but the menu is slightly confusing. You'll need to play with it for a while. Apart from that, make sure you don't leave it in the heat of the sun just before using it under water or it will steam up inside the casing! I got a scare but it's ok once it cools back down.

Rock solid and definitely waterproof, but GPS is sometimes too slow for me

DW, Amazon
23 September 2013
  • Summary: I went for this camera because of 2 main points: 1. It's waterproof and shockproof, 2. It has GPS location tagging. I don't care so much for the upper echelons of photo quality and zoom -- to me all decent cameras work just fine -- so my rating is based on the 2 points above.
