Very good camera, but needs some work

  • Excerpt: The image quality is fine; check the reviews. Good build quality.<br /><br />I really like the addition of time lapse capability, the 60fps 1080 video (great for slo mo), and the remote control via wifi. The Panasonic Image app is rather clumsy and ugly, but the remote control is awesome. With a camera like this you can leave out that opens lots of opportunities. Eg, you can take wildlife shots by hiding near nests, burrows, etc and triggering shutter remotely.
  • Pros: Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact, waterproof
  • Cons: Poor Documentation, Slow gps

replacement of an older lumix

  • Summary: I bought the older Lumix camera 2 years ago and used it in Hawaii. We took pictures of underwater turtles and tropical fish. Two years later, i noticed the camera would have issues with the screen and saving pictures. It turns out water was leaking into the camera. I've tried GoPro and Samsung but I think this camera provides the best < 40 feet underwater pics. One sad thing is the condensation that can build on the lens / view finder. It can ruin a picture.

rugged

  • Summary: used the camera underwater down to 25 ft. and it worked fine. it also survived abuse during a 4 week adventurous trip to Belize. design limits optical zoom, but that's what you sacrifice for the ruggedness. pocket size made it convenient to carry everywhere.

Great camera, but I haven't tested it under water yet.

  • Summary: We bought this to replace our canon power shot sd1300. Overall, the camera is very user friendly, and durable so our 2 year old can handle it without worry. Most of the photo options are available within a couple clicks, a few are hidden within the menu (multiple photos per second for example) I have tried a few other photo options, but the best seems to be intelligent autofocus, which is the default setting on the camera.

I like it a lot. Buttons are a little small for my XL hands. Uses batteries and memory fast, so need extra memory cards and ba

  • Summary: I would buy it again. Takes good pictures. The panoramic function is primo!. I like the special button on top just for video. Takes some time to get used to like most electronics. Close up shots are primo too.

Very Practical Camera

  • Summary: I liked this camera. Took some great pictures. I would not recommend this camera as all purpose camera (not good enough for zooming to take wild life pictures). Worked well underwater, haven't seen the results yet b/c just got back from my trip to Costa Rica.

Good camera

Astonly, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I travelled with this camera in Switzerland and took pictures while snowboarding as well as visiting local cities. I did not have to worry about the camera getting hit or wet while I was snowboarding and at the same time liked the pictures that I was able to get with it. The only time when pictures were not so great is when it was dark.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Nice Body Color, Small / Compact

Excellent camera with WiFi and GPS!

  • Excerpt: This camera has been great so far. I especially like being able to upload photos and videos to my iPhone in the field without a WiFi router through direct connection. The GPS identifies local landmarks very well and the geotagging saves me having to do that manually with GeoSetter anymore.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Quality

Worked great down to 15 feet

  • Summary: Not sure it is what I need, maybe should have got a cheaper UW camera for specific uses and just relied on my other point and shoots. Disappointed with UW battery life and battery in general.
