Think of treating my self to a new digital camera mainly for diving & snorkelling. I was thinking of the Panasonic TZ7 with the MCTZ7E underwater case. If anyone has used this camera, can I get some feedback please.

Any other recommendations appreciated baring in mind that I need a camera that will allow me to dive up to 30M.

Budget is 300.

Hi there, I can highly recommend the TZ7 and the MCTZ7E underwater marine case.

For some samples of pics see my trip report http://meeru.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=12569

For video here see http://meeru.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=12821


The marine case is brilliant, rated to 40m. It is quite pricey but worth it especially if you want to go diving.

If you need to know anything else just let me know

Thanks, I just just used the free Windows Movie Maker that comes with Windows 7. Its a bit sluggish in processing but not bad for free.

Hi Paul,

quick question .... what settings did you use on your camera for taking photos/recording under water?

Did you use any software to clean up your photos?

Cheers

Chas.

Hi Chas

For the underwater pics I used mainly the underwater setting, this takes away the blue hue you get underwater and slightly increases the red tones. It works pretty well most of the time.

The pictures came out great in shallow water without any post processing but some of the deeper shots had a bit more blue. I touched up a couple of shots using GIMP2 (http://www.gimp.org/) just reducing the blue slightly and adding a touch of red.


Paul
