Panasonic's Waterproof Point-and-Shoot Is Snow- a...


This rugged point-and-shoot isn't just slim and trim, it's also waterproof to 10 feet -- just enough to survive the powder or the head-high surf.

Clear and intuitive menu navigation. Impressive image stabilization helps when you're in a hurry. Time savers: Preset macros for shooting in the snow or at the beach, or capturing specific content like fireworks. Can withstand 5-foot drops on dry land....

Only waterproof down to 10 feet. Poor audio quality with video. The 2.7-inch display is difficult to read in direct sun. Flash could be stronger. Memory card not included

Great durable camera in a small package


Overall a great camera for the price. Comparable to the DMC-TS2, for a much cheaper price. Does not go as deep as the TS2 (30ft vs. 10ft), or withstand as much impact (10ft drop vs. 5ft), however. For under $200, you can\'t beat the build and lens...

Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FT10 waterproof camera


The Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FT10 is a 14-megapixel, waterproof digital camera that's $200 cheaper than the Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FT1 and Panasonic LUMIX DMC...

Cheap, easy menu operation, sturdy

Interface is too slow, overly smudgy images at higher ISOs

Often the cheapest cameras are the ones that put up with the most punishment. If you're looking for a knock-around point-and-shoot digital camera to take to the beach, for bushwalking or for use with kids, the Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FT10 should suit your...

Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FT10 review


This budget waterproof camera is great for basic beach and travel use, but its image quality in poor light is mediocre.

The Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FT10 is a mixed bag; its good specifications and low price are offset by image quality that we didn't fall in love with. If you're looking for a happy-snap camera that will stand up to the rigors of an active life, it is a...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT10


If you want a basic tough camera and can live with its quirks, the FT10 is a decent enough choice.

Compact, rugged body at a reasonable price ; HD video

No HDMI output ; No one-touch video button ; Image quality suffers above ISO 200

The FT10 is decent enough; just keep your photo and video quality expectations in check given its position in the Lumix tough range.
