I'd love to hear about it

Some of the reports are that the waterproofing may not be up to par (for instance, on Amazon there is a note about a flimsy battery door hinge which may be prone to leak).

Also, I am curious if the GPS can be left on while the camera is off? The poor GPS implementation in my HX100V has been the biggest gripe I've had about the camera.

Otherwise, the DSC-TX200V is the only waterproof compact of passable design. I don't know what some like Pentax are thinking when they design stuff....

I need one, but reading the waterproof tests, it seems the Panasonic omes out best
