  • Excerpt: From the off I must state I have limited experience with the camera. As a camera type the idea of a weatherproof pocket alternative to my main camera was an attraction. However once the internet purchase arrived the disappointment began. First of all - good lens, crisp resolution at base ISO. Not bad at all and certainly enough for the camera type. The look and feel of the camera is fine. All boxes ticked on the camera exterior. But then we come to the photographs.

  • Excerpt: The TS20 is a smaller version of the TS3/4 rugged cameras, I think. I got it for US$ 95 on Amazon, so the price was right. I find the images exhibit noise at even low ISOs, but they clean up well in post. Handling is good for its very small size. I use it for snorkeling and jogging outings. It's waterproof and I've had no issues with leakage. You can see some images here: http://smu.gs/PukTkK . Problems: None so far.

NOT waterproof!!

  • Summary: This was a great camera for the dry-land part of my gap year. Unfortunately, just as I got to the middle of nowhere with beautiful scenery, I decided to take it underwater for the first time. I followed the instructions to the T but it broke, leaving me camera-less for 6 weeks. I was gutted. Don't buy this camera if you're taking it underwater, spend a bit more and get a model that actually works.

Great Camera

  • Summary: Bought for my daughter as she wanted to get some underwater shots on holiday. we're not experts by any means but in our opinion pictures she took were of great quality both in and out of water. She's no photographer but if you're a novice like her then I'm sure you'll be pleased with the results. Colours were sharp and pictures very clear.

Best camera for those that do not want quality compromised.

  • Summary: Best camera for those that do not want quality compromised. Just does everything you want for a robust, water tight camera. Went to Africa and snorkelled in Lake Malawi; video and pictures were great underwater! The zoom is good and the quality overall was excellent. Would not hesitate and buy another one if this ever failed.

Fab Camera

  • Summary: Very clear and easy to use. The underwater photos are fantastic. I am a bit nervous every time I close the side section as you have to make sure there is no dust. But so far so good. It is a great product and very user friendly.

  • Summary: I bought this little gem in HK about 15 months ago and it has been all round the world with me in all kinds of climatic conditions, from -10C to 42C, above water mostly, but occasionally in the sea and also my swimming pool here in Brazil. I paid roughly GBP100 with a 32GB card, a leather case and a float attachment to stop it sinking!! I have looked at many reviews on this camera, and it's a real mixed bag of lovers and haters.
  • Pros: It is the best "Take Anywhere" camera on the market at a reasonable price
  • Cons: Battery life could be better.
