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 buying through Wex was a delight and i only wish i had bought my DSLR from them, rather then a foreign company that pretends to be from the UK.
Pros: Durable, Great Features, Great Picture Quality, Lightweight, Simple Controls
Summary: The Lumix camera takes great features and has a number of useful features including the ability to use your smart phone as a remote control and actually being able to view the photo you are taking on the phone itself. Also ordered the case for the camera which was very disappointing, not that well made and came in black not orange as illustrated.
Summary: I spent a long time reading reviews on the internet about waterproof cameras and found the reviews confusing and contradictory at times. My shortlist selected on specification was the Olympus Tough and this Panasonic Lumix. In the end, reviewers experiences of leaks with the Olympus put me off that model.
Summary: I'd have given it 5 stars if its timelapse wasn't restricted to 1000 frames and if they could be more frequent than 10 seconds. That's OK for clouds etc but my GoPro will do unlimited frames a second apart. Another annoyance is not being able to start timelapse remotely. Using my iPod Touch or Android tablet I can use WiFi to zoom the lens and take still pictures or movies which is great fun and quite useful.
Excerpt: Цифровая камера Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT5, отзыв на которую я хотела бы оставить - является первой нашей водонепроницаемой камерой ( так сказать мыльницей). До нее были аналогичные мыльницы но без этого свойства. По началу я относилась к этой покупке скептически - ибо к технике относимся очень бережно и без нужды не роняем, не купаем и не рискуем по пустякам... Lumix DMC-FT5 купили перед поездкой в Тайланд - знали, что там будет что поснимать под водой.
