  • Camera failed a month after warrantee expired
    Reviewed at

    I used the camera for 5 snorkeling trips. It worked well and took good video's and pictures. I never dove with it. It never got water in it. Then when I got home I got a SYSTEM ERROR (Zoom) when it boots. Am sending it back. Will see if they standby their name. I will not pay to repair it. If they don't fix it for free I will never again buy their product.

  • Fall apart
    Reviewed at

    I purchased one of these cameras for use at work. I need a camera that occasionally takes a short fall, usually three feet or less, and one I can wipe down with disenfectant on a daily basis. Initially, the camera fell onto a hardwood floor from a height of two feet within the first month of ownership. The retaining plastic for the shutter release broke and the button came off. Under warranty, I sent it back and got a new one within two weeks. After nine months of use, the new camera also has the same problem. Although it may have gotten bumped, it has never fallen nor been abused. I have never had a problem with fogging or with leaking from being wiped down often. I have inadvertantly set the camera in a puddle of water without damage. Occasionally the flash does not work despite correct settings. This happens mostly on back lit objects. Great concept for a camera, just not quite sturdy enough for me.

  • Extremely Disappointed
    Reviewed at

    I wish more reviews of this camera had been available before I purchased it. Now, I have had the camera for just over 1 1/2 years, but with minimal use, it's only been in the water three times. The first trip out in the water was great and the camera stayed dry, I thought it was awesome. The second outing was during a snorkeling trip and the it shut down after about 20 minutes in the water, found out later that water had entered the camera. The third outing was even worse, water immediately filled the camera. The SD card that was in it is also junk now that salt water has ruined it. Before each outing I made sure that seals were clean and properly sealed. It's now out of warranty and manufacturer offered very little relief. I can pay to have it repaired, but why would I want to do that just in HOPES of correcting the leak. I have lost trust in this camera and will stay far away from it. I'm feeling very let down by a manufacturer that I had high opinions of before using this camera.

  • No support and later failed
    Reviewed at

    The camera turned off every time that I tried to download onto my computer. Product support was useless. They didn't have any information about my particular camera and kept making daft suggestions. I finally downloaded by putting the card into another camera and downloading from there. Fortunate that I had another camera. The camera failed after two years of use - maybe started leaking and self-destructed?

    It was great not having to worry about getting the camera wet. Had a blast in the ocean jumping through waves with the camera. Was just as great at the swim up pool bar. Pictures came out great!

  • Mmy husband recieved the ...
    Reviewed at

    Mmy husband recieved the Panasonic TS20 Lumix for his birthday & took the camera on vacation. On day 2, the flash & lens both fogged up. There were no pictures taken under water. Since this was a brand new camera, we did not bring a back up. This is our first vacation in 5 years and with both of our daughters. This experience left us with no camera. We were very excited to have this camera and were very disappointed when it did not work. The camera was purchased less than 10 days ago & we will be returning it to the store.

  • Great beach but poor underwater camera
    Reviewed at

    I LOVE my Lumix DMC-G2 camera! Was trying to find a slimmer camera for the beach so I won't worry about my nice camera getting ruined by the salt and sand. Got this camera online late last year (Oct 2012#. Have taken it skiing many times and been very pleased with the slimness and durability. We took it to the beach for the first time on 3/24-3/30/2013. Unfortunately, it did not meet our expectations. Took it snorkeling once and it functioned but had water inside the lens and screen afterwards. I had checked to ensure no sand or grit was in the seal #per the directions). Allowed it dry and then tried snorkeling again. It shut down completely after 15-20 minutes underwater. I could see air bubbles coming from the on/off button on the top. Now, it won’t turn on at all or light up like it’s charging. I’m sending it back to Panasonic and asking for a new one. Maybe try the newer model instead. Hope Panasonic has worked out the kinks.

  • Nice
    Reviewed at

    I normally take pictures with a DSLR but when a smaller pocket camera is needed this is the one I use. The pictures on this camera look really good for small 16mp point and shoot. All of my outdoor/indoor shots have turned out better than expected. The pictures with low light levels seem to be the only weak point but still not bad. The shutter lag is minimal and for this type of camera that is important. The thing that most impressed me is how waterproof it is. I dropped this camera in about 12 feet of lake water and could not get to it until the next day. I was kind of suprised that the camera worked fine and was completely dry under the seal.

  • Not waterproof.
    Reviewed at

    This camera does OK pictures but is not waterproof. It leaked the second time I used it (second time being the next day after camera had time to properly dry), though I made perfectly sure the door was properly locked and there was no foreign particles (like sand etc) stuck in the seal. If you need underwater look elsewhere - or get the cheapest one - at least you won't be sorry when it leaks.

  • Not waterproof, even to 3'
    Reviewed at

    Had this camera for a bit over a year and it took decent photos until we went snorkeling. We were no deeper than 3' at any given time and the camera promptly died when we exited the water. One year warranty was expired and we flushed our money on the camera down the drain, as it were. We could have bought any point and shoot for much less money and had the same amount of waterproofing as this unit.
