I want a waterproof camera, and an old friend of mine once borrowed a Lumix (pictured) and it worked great. But at one point it got condensation INSIDE and as a consequence, no longer worked. It was repaired under warranty, but since he’d borrowed it, he bought his own anyway. On another trip, this one also developed a condensation issue in the lens and so two-from-two he’s had problems with the Lumix.
I can’t recall what happened with the second one, if it cleared up or not.
But in searching the web the other day I came across this little video, at least I now have some other choices to think about.
