Some customer reviews of Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT10

Most helpful reviews

ANDY, Leeds Point & shoot

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
I'm just a snapshot taker and I've only used it for a couple of weeks but:
Easy to find Intelligent Autofocus button (no need to search through menus) is really good.
My son had a school project to take "nature" close up pics - results were excellent.
The optical zoom function does not require a moving lens case (which has jammed on my previous two digital cameras) - but it seems to work fine to me.
Bad points:
Why do they make these cameras so small? This is not soecific to this model - I think it's an issue with all cameras of this type. Something bigger would be much easier to handle.

Good points:
Great all round camera. Good fun for all the family. I bought this shock & waterproof digital camera specifically so that all four of my children - 15, 13, 9 and 6 years old, could take lots of pictures on various holidays. It worked brilliantly !

Confirmed purchaser Experienced amateur

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Small and well built. It needs reasonable light but is far better than I thought it would be based upon some reviews. It works under water but the pictures taken are initial fun but are poor quality. The real reason for this camera is to safeguard against small accidental drops or to be used whilst sailing where things can get really wet, and in this it excels as it is small and light. Remember, as it doesn't float you will need to tie it to you should you capsize, or fix it to some floatation device. It is also small and smart enough to be used as an 'everyday' camera. Video pictures are very good, but sound is poor.
