Default Pics with underwater Camera

I got a Panasonic DMC-TS3. I could hardly wait to get it out of the package and under the water.

So far it is pretty easy to use.
The color is almost spot on. The colors are a bit washed out...I'll have to play with the settings.
HD video is is great!
It also can take 3D pictures(I have not tried this feature).
The only concern with these type of camera is that you have to make sure the battery/memory door is hair/lint/dust/sand free or water will get in and ruin it.

Holy Guacamole! Those are some sweeeeet pics!!

I had a Canon underwater cam few years back and everything was fine the first year. The following year I took it to the lake and before you know it there was water inside. Disapointed was an understatement.

I am pretty good at following directions etc and I always take care of my equipment so to see such instant failure I was piss......!!!! Hope yours proves to be better; LONG term.

There is only one area that water could get in through.
I already e-mail panasonic to see if they recommend replacing the gasket every year or so.

That might be the trick, with time any rubber gets brittle and even tiny micro-fractures can let water seep in.

I remember having an underwater enclosure about 5 years ago for a little Canon P/S and the gaskets were lubricated when closing the "clam" shut. This created a tighter water proof seal, probably no an option around the battery/card compartment unless one was very careful applying the grease.

I just read some reviews about this camera, and for the most part to solve that problem, they reccomend you rinse it and use the brush that came with it.
