I have owned this camera for over a year and have taken some awesome photographs. It is brilliant for snorkelling and Scuba Diving ( I have taken it to around 8 metres but then decided to buy the Ikelite waterproof housing to go deeper)
The snorkelling and underwater modes are great at filtering the blue light so do not need any post production effects. I have also taken some fantastic shots on the macro setting when the underwater currents will allow.
Other modes that I have used extensively are the sunset mode, and the star gazer and fireworks mode.
Firework mode gives you a 2/3 second exposure, where the star mode has an option for 15/30/60 seconds, so with a tripod or a very steady hand you can get some interesting night time shots or as we did, have a play around doing some light graffiti.
The burst mode is fun when splashing around in the water and you can get shots you never thought were possible.
Having met other travellers with this camera, it gives some great photos whilst being hard enough to withstand most knocks, dust or water
The DMC-FT3 is designed for active use, that is waterproof to a depth of 12 meters, freeze-proof of down to -10¦C, shockproof for falls from up to 2.0 meters, and dust-proof. In movie recording, the LED light turns on for beautiful movies in dusky underwater environments or at a nighttime camp.
