    This is an excellent camera which takes great, sharp pictures in daylight. Good underwater pictures and overall really nice, lightweight camera. Not recommended for low light as the picture becomes grainy but definitely a must buy for taking pictures in the lake or the ocean, we have taken it many times on cottaging, hiking and camping trips


  • Not really waterproof at all

    I have had two Panasonic Lumix DMCs and both have leaked around the lens while being used at surface depth. No evidence of leakage around the door with water visible under the lens cover in both cases. Poorly designed for the marketed use. I do not recommend it.

    I've only had this camera for about a month but so far I am very happy with this product. It's a little more light weight than other cameras I've had so it is easy to slip into a pocket or even hold while jogging. It is easy to use, the picture quality is pretty good and the battery life seems decent. I haven't tried taking pictures underwater or anything like that, but I did get caught in the rain and the camera got pretty wet- it still works without any issues so it does appear to be reasonably waterproof as it claims. Just an observation: there isn't really anything to protect the camera lens- it's always exposed, as seems to be the case with many other waterproof cameras. It might be an idea to get a proper camera case so that the lens does not accidentally get scratched.
