Summary: This guy was tough. Why was? Because it's dead today! (You can ignore this part) Here is the story today. My girl friend and I drove to a beach today and we want to change seats at a traffic light. When I was walking out of the car with one foot out, the car moves! Because my girl friend didn't park the car.... And later when we get to the destination, I couldn't find this boy anywhere. I finally realized it must be flying out of the car. So we just moved on.
Summary: I really wanted to love this camera, I replaced my old 790sw that was a great camera for me. I just have to keep fighting with this camera to take a normal picture, its either to bright or to dark... I messed around with it on my vacation and lost a bunch of great pictures because this camera did not want to take a good picture, where my 790sw was just point and shoot no messing around with settings...
Summary: A friend of mine had this camera and I liked what it could do - especially the underwater feature). I haven't used it too much and haven't had a chance to go underwater with it yet (too cold in New England this time of year - but it takes great pictures and has some really unusual features that are 'fun'!
Summary: For most situations, I've found that my phone camera works just fine. I'm not one to dread over photo quality too much. From my experience, if I wanted a camera with the best quality photos, I would go with a DSLR. I figure if I was going to buy a point and shoot camera, I would buy one that I can use in situations where I cannot use my phone. While shopping around for a durable waterproof camera, I narrowed it down to goPro or TG-2.
Summary: We have used this camera in all kinds of harsh conditions, the camera does well. The strap that comes with it is not good, it released twice, once in the ocean and we almost lost the camera and all the pictures on it. Use a different strap!!! Seriously!
Summary: I bought this camera from a local shop as a upgrade for my olympus tough TG1.I was a little worried at first to use it underwater because the housing I ordered hasn't arrived yet. This camera is rated at 50 feet depth so I was cautious not to dive deeper than that. I removed 1 star because when I tried to use super macro the camera focus seems to hunt & unable to focus on the subject, but when I did at the surface it seems to work fine.
Excerpt: I bought a TG-2 as an underwater camera, something relatively cheap that I could take snorkelling or diving. Mainly I didn't want to go to the expense and risk of putting a larger sensor camera and a fancy lens into an underwater housing. My first use of the TG-2 was during a holiday on the Great Barrier Reef. For the price, I'm very happy with how it performed, though there are a few missing features (e.g. raw format) that I would have been happy to pay more for.
Summary: Very happy with this purchase, camera performed very well during our trip to Belize. f/2.0 aperture helps a lot underwater, if you can get close to the subject and shoot wide open, the results are really nice. Main areas to improve: RAW support, camera responsiveness to take first shot (it's OK, but compared to a DLSR, it's so slow. Even my iPhone 5s feels faster).
