Nice small compact camera! Takes amazing underwater photos!
2 weeks ago
Summary: This is a great little camera. It takes great underwater photos. Crystal clear definition. The only reason I rated this at 4 stars was the first one just quit working after about 5 days of use. I sent it back to the seller and they promptly replaced it. Hopefully this new one is better. The quality of the photos is wonderful.
Summary: I needed a waterproof camera for a beach vacation and I decided to buy one 3 days before we left. Without a lot of research I trusted the reviews from Amazon and made an impulse purchase. I LOVE this camera. It's very easy to use in and out of water. The quality of pictures from this is amazing. I would highly recommend this camera.
Summary: I have had this camera for one month and shot more than 500 pictures. While the TG620 can be used in fully automatic mode, it is very flexible in P-mode. Fiddling with the various shooting modes using the toggle and the LCD screen works, but is very slow, particularly under bright outdoors conditions, where the screen is harder to read. The only feature which I miss is exposure bracketing.
Summary: Bought for a trip where we would be on/in the water every day, it was great! Between boats/snorkeling/fishing/swimming I didn't have to worry about it getting splashed or submerged or dropped on the boat deck. Took great pictures as well with lots of features (love the panorama options!). Battery lasted good amount of time as well once I put it on "power save" mode.
Summary: For the price it is a very good camera. I haven't used it underwater yet. I love the macro feature. The main problem with this camera is the difficulty of using the small function button. It takes a lot of finesse for a bumble fingers like me. The other problem is my desire to have the lens centered in the camera body. That also takes some experience. Luckily you can shoot away and get all the experience you need with little cost.
Summary: Even without using the "water" setting, the pics we took at the outdoor pool were clear and sharp. The pics we took away from water were comparable to my non-waterproof digital camera. Probably the only negative thing I can say about the camera is that the wrist strap on the camera itself is not adjustable.
