Summary: I have had this camera for several years now. I take it with me on the boat, dirtbiking and everything in-between. Durable and Reliable. takes a little practice to learn the functions. I prefer the iA mode and let it adjust itself. I'm a Canon guy, but I got this so I don't have to worry about damaging it. Great battery time, very durable. I also bought a rubber cover that fits it perfectly. 14mp is plenty for me, I run it at 12mp.
Summary: My Olympus 1030SW died after climbing aboard a boat with the camera in the front pocket of my life jacket. I read the reviews for this camera and decided to go for it. It has performed very well for me. One of the things I like most about it is that it boots up fast and I can take a photo almost immediately after hitting the power button. Unfortunately, after many encounters with salt water the video button doesn't work.
Summary: I bought this camera to take on a cruise. It was worth the price I paid. I live by the coast. I go to the beach and pool year around and this camera has been through a lot. Although the underwater pictures are not the best quality , I didnt have to worry about getting the camera wet and I have decent underwater pictures. I have put this camera through a lot of aquatic use with little care to maintenance and after nearly 2 years Im now noticing water drops inside.
Summary: This Panasonic Lumix TS-10 works perefctly in every enironment I have gone to, underwater, a pool, at the beach, mud, the only thing I have not tried it yet is snow, but I'm going to Berlin on the 24th and beleive I'll let you know how it works... The only thing I don't like is taht is a little bulky, but I don't mind that very much becasue I have bbig hands... But it's a little bit bigger than a normal camera...
Summary: I've had this camera for almost six months and have used it extensively in the pool. It does a much better job at underwater photography than the competition in this price range....and the shutter lag is much less than the others. That's a big deal when you're shooting underwater. A really BIG deal. The images it produces are somewhat flat but a bit of post processing work can bring out the color in underwater shots.
Summary: It is 2012 as of this review so this camera is falling behind in terms of other point and shoot cameras on the market which offer full 1080p video with stereo mics compared to the mono mic on the ts10. My review will be focused on the actual use of the camera and it's oddities. I'm a canon user and switching to the ts10 was odd as the menu system isn't as intuitive as canon's.
This is one neat little camera, but does not produce optimal underwater photos.

Summary: I bought this camera for a trip to St. Croix, USVI, for the specific purpose of using it for underwater photography while snorkeling in the crystal-clear, blue-green waters of the Caribbean. I will qualify my disappointment over my very mediocre snorkeling shots with the admission that I had never used a camera underwater before.
Summary: This is my second Lumix. One I own is not water proof so I got this one. This camera is larger than non waterproof Lumix which I did not think before I bought. 14mega pixels is good. What I don't understand is camera came with semi transparent rubber soft case goes over camera. After taking photos you got to take this rubber out from camera to open side door to connect computer port. I don't like this method.
