    I purchased this camera as i needed something robust to take on holiday & because of panasonics good reputation thought i would go for it, i was not disappointed, i thought the photos would be exceptable but so far this camera has far exceeded my expectations, for a compact the results are amazing, i also own a canon G10 & the FT1 results are much better, ok its not going to be as good as a DSLR , but ive owned a lot of high end compacts & this beats the lot. if you want a good quality point & shoot this is the one to get.

    I've been into photography for some years now and have quite a bit of semi-pro kit. I've always wanted a good camera that can handle being bashed about a bit but still takes quality images.

    I've most recently tried the Pentax W30, a cheap alternative. and as i should have expected it didn't work for long and broke!! So i decided to take the plunge and go for a more expensive alternative (the Panasonic). I have to say i'm more than impressed with it. Good start up time, very quick auto focus and intelligent, there is very little lag between the button being pressed and the photo being taken (this has also been what drives me mad with compact cameras)

    All in all very good camera and worth the money.

    I was looking to purchase a 'tough' digital camera to take on holiday that was waterproof and dustproof - and this fitted the specification. It came down to a decision between this and the quirky canon powershot D10 - I'm so pleased with my choice!

    I have only had the camera for a day and therefore have yet to test it underwater, but so far so good!! Picture quality is excellent, menu layout is simple to use and logical. It has definitely been designed with the user in mind - some great features that make it fantastic for general use as well as adventure junkies - pictures are clear even with the zoom in full use, thanks to a great stabiliser and 12 mega pixel resolution. My favourite features are the 'burst' function, which allows you to take as many shots as you wish in extremely quick succession - approx 10 pictures per second - great for sports events which makes it perfect for me. In conjunction with this the favourites function is brilliant - taking pictures in burst mode means you have hundreds of pictures to manually delete to create more room on your sdhc card for new pictures - this allows you to select which are your favourites and delete the remainder.

    There are so many more things I could mention, but in summary, this is one smart camera. I couldn't decide whether to 'take the plunge' - excuse the pun, :) with this camera as other than technical reviews in jargon I don't understand, there is little info on the net, but in my opinion, its well worth its money and then some.

    Highly recommended.

    So, camera arrived within 21 hours of ordering... very impressed with Prime.
    I knew I'd love this camera because my brother bought the silver one a week ago.
    The quality of the photo's is amazing. Macro is crystal clear, you can see every detail.
    I LOVE the blue colour!! Shame there isn't a case that comes with it :-(
    Video looks very clear and sharp too, but I haven't seen it on the plasma yet.
    Just to warn, you can only record a max of 15 minutes no matter how big your memory card is.
    I think it could be a little faster in between shots, but when my 30 m/b card arrives this should sort that out (hence the ish in the title).
    It has only been a couple of hours since the camera arrived, but first impressions are 9.7/10 (if it were faster between shots it'd have got a 10/10).
    Price on Amazon.co.uk is very very competitive. Infact, my brother paid £5 more than me when he received his last week (not from Amazon).
    Can't wait to try it on the beach and test how waterproof it actually is!

    Good camera. Takes good pictures and video. Easy to operate. Little dissapointed and to how easy the screen got scratched, but that could just be down to the kids.

    I bought the Lumix FT1 before going on holiday, and it has proved to be excellent in all the conditions encountered so far (very high humidity). The movie system is really good, with good sound.
    Do be careful if you buy a second battery - it will reject all but Panasonic ones, which are expensive!
    The quick start up is a real bonus, you can catch the most fleeting glimpse!
    There is almost no delay on the shutter, it was really top class for the Singapore motor racing F1 Grand Prix.
    So far, I can thoroughly recommend this compact camera, which is loaded with features if you want them!

    Not much to say... I was looking for a waterproof camera. I have used it really carefully but it leaked after 10 minutes underwater.
    Panasonic doesn't want to replace it. So be warned... Considering the number of people complaining about the issue I would imagine that their "waterproof" camera is not yet 100% reliable

    I bought this camera to take to the Maldives for a snorkelling holiday. It did not disappoint as far as the quality of the photos and video were concerned - absolutely first class. Unfortunately, no matter how closely I followed the instructions concerning the seals on the battery housing door, every time I took the battery out to recharge, it was wet. I don't consider this camera to be suitable for snorkelling at all and I returned it to Amazon and received a full refund, within 5 days of arriving home, which was superb customer service.

    I notice that Panasonic have now released a new model, FT2, which looks similar but which is rated as waterproof to 10m rather than 3m - maybe they realised there were problems with the FT1.

    If you just want a camera that's dust proof and shower proof then buy it. If you want to take it in the water, don't buy it.
