This review is from: Panasonic DMC-FT20EB-R Rugged Camera with LEICA Lens and HD Movie - Red (16.1MP, 4x Optical Zoom) (Electronics)
I had to write a review about this camera as we are very pleased with it. I went to florida with my husband and 2 kids. In short the camera was easy to use, took very good quaity photos both in & out of water and the shutter speed was brillant ensuring that when a quick photo was required we got the picture.
We are not proffesional photographers and therefore I can not say whether this would be a good for a pro but for holiday snaps its perfect, the camera is light and compact it fitted into our pockets comfortably, my husband was able to use the camera with just one hand and get good photos. Also the camerma has an intelligent mode which helps taking the excellent photo as am I not good with cameras :)
The down side is that we found the battery would be low on power after around 4 hours of shooting and reviewing photos (not sure if this is the normal for digital cameras), the screen is not the biggest but we found it ok and for photos under water you need to be a bit further away for your subject which took a bit of trail and error to judge.
In all for the money we paid, it was brilliant and would recommend this for people who want a realiable camera for holidays etc where water will feature whether it be rain or swimming pool (we did not try it in the sea and we only used it in water depths of 5 foot deep)
