Crapped out on 2nd underwater trip

  • Summary: I purchased this camera back in Aug. 2009 shortly after it was introduced. The intent was to use it while snorkling in the Caribbean on a cruise. I used it underwater on three different dates during that cruise. Although the viewfinder had a bit of fogging everything else seemed to work ok.

  • Summary: Made it on two snorkling trips. On the trip it developed a leak. Expensive mistake. I should have went with the Canon. And listened to all the reviews on Amazon. Live and learn.

  • Summary: I Purchased the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS1 on 02/3/10 along with the Panasonic marine camera case. One of the main reasons for purchasing the Lumix DMC-TS1 was the "waterproof" camera itself.

  • Summary: My wife and I are professional photographers. We take the majority of our photos on vacation with the same camera I use at weddings (Nikon D300s). It is fantastic. However, I wanted an underwater camera I could use while snorkeling both for photos and video.

  • Summary: Didn't like it, couldn't stand the picture quality. The shutter lag was intolerable, I would click to caputure a moment and it failed every time. It was hard to photograph kids.

  • Summary: I bought this camera after losing my last Lumix to a leaky bottle of water in my backpack, specifically because it was waterproof. I took it in a pool yesterday in less than 10 feet of water and water leaked into the compartment that houses the battery and memory card. It is ruined.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS1

Josh Sprague "JS", Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this camera hoping that it wouldn't be too cumbersome and assumed picture quality was a no brainer. Overall it's heavier than most digital cameras but that is to be expected as it's waterproof and shockproof so I'm good with that. The picture quality is absolutely horrible though.
