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.
Excerpt: Camera is great! Exactly what I wanted for action photography. Camera is very easy to use, fast start up and the fps at 12m is crazy fast. This is the first camera my wife has been able to take a decent picture with. The edges of the photos are sometimes a little distorted. But my other camera is what I use for portrait type shots.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Large Clear LCD, Short Lag Time, Small / Compact
