Hi all. I'm new here and have a question about my Panasonic DMC-FT1. It's one of those point & shoot Shockproof, Waterproof models. We purchased it to take photos while snorkelling in Fiji, which it did very well.
However, I have read somewhere that the seals need to be replaced on a regular basis. It was last used under water in January 2010, and has been used as a "dry land" camera since then.
We will be returning to Fiji in 2014, and would like to use the camera while snorkelling again. Should we get the seals checked and/or replaced before going, and if so, does anyone have an idea of what the cost would be?
