Panasonic FT2 Waterproof Camera
by Kaivan Kalyaniwalla on 2014-05-16
Firstly: Flipkart has done an excellent job of before time delivery..less then 10 hrs from order placed.
The product is as good as all reviews say, very sturdy n solid feel with a weight for the size. The one i received was on a heavy discount..seems it was due to old stock, nearly 4 years old, No complaints on it as this camera are made to stand time n weather.
The box contains the main camera , battery and a plastic sleeve, Silicon sleeve cover for camera body, Adjustable short sling, Charger n 2 cables for wall outlet(Indian 2 pin/U.S 3 pin flat), CD for user guide, warranty card, safety instruction for waterproof damage leaf let, usb cable for direct connection to PC, RC cable for TV screen/ Player, A small brush to clean the rubber seals on battery n USD connection compartment.A free 4Gb class 4 SD card outside the box.
It will be recommended that you buy a screen guard for the screen n Len(this will have to be sourced from other international sites).
Update after used for over 200 shots.
The buttons are very user friendly even with the silicon sleeve on it.
The picture speed is good..the camera processes its images quite fast n is ready for next shoot in very short time.
The down side is the picture pixel break/grain is poor.....if u want a high quality picture but not waterproof or rugged camera then choose other cameras in same budgets(INR:8900).
This one is good only for adventure seekers who just want a rugged camera which can take the dust, road n nature n weather beatings. but are ready to sacrifice a lot on high quality. the basic output is very good.
Micro quality is good to a very short distance focus, not so in zoomed position.
The bust setting works well.
There is no panorama...but a panorama help option which is very good(Multiple settings for same).
The colour option has 'natural' which is very true to actual colour to eyes.
The camera is best used in iA mode.
I have still not tried the camera in snow or rains or under water.( will do it in real surroundings).
Weight might be an issue for some for its size..but that's the rugged body.
The PC compatibility is simple n supports windows 7 on my Laptop.
Verdict for now: Pros: This camera at INR 8900 is good for rugged users, good battery life, landscapes use, basic micro shoot, real colour of nature, fast moving objects..
Cons: At INR 8900, Not good enough for detail photography, Not good enough for micro details on flowers and insect.
An all rounder dual camera

For the price we pay, the quality of the product is not compromised.Both photo and the video results are good.Operating systems are also quite simple for the beginners.Battery life last long per charge.There is no lens cover and that is a shortcoming .Weight is little bit high and other than that it is a good camera to go with.Flipkart's delivery schedule is excellent.

This is an excellent camera for your outings and picnics.
I have personally used this camera underwater and have had a good experience.
you will not regret the 9000 spent on this. I have personally used this camera during my underwater dives and has worked pretty well, I found the focusing little slow in greater depths(beyond 15')
A nice to have camera for all those who love the outdoors
