Great camera ... until it hit the water!

D. Wozny "TurboDiesel", Amazon
2 April 2010
  • Summary: I hate to give this camera a bad review, because the truth is I really like it! Picture quality is great, it's packed with features, and it seems a very rugged little camera. That said, we bought this camera with the intention to use it while snorkeling in Maui.

Picture Quality inadequate / cost of ownership too high

  • Summary: I wanted to replace my point & shoot (Canon SD7000is) before my summer vacation as the zoom is starting to stick. I did research and got excited about this new Panasonic DMC-TS1 because the reviews said it had decent image quality, great features and was waterproof / shock-proof to boot.

  • Summary: Well, after a trip on a beach and our old Sony cybershot camera getting sandy, we decided to look into the "tough Cameras". We were very excited about getting this Panasonic. After a few weeks of use in different circumstances we were a bit disappointed though about the image quality.

Died after 3 pictures underwater

Naoyuki G. Saito "shibaowner", Amazon
6 December 2009
  • Summary: We would like to think that this is not a typical experience, but in our case, this camera did not work out. We purchased this camera days before our cruise vacation. We were actually very happy with the camera (features and portability, especially) and the picture quality, even though I thought the...

Not Waterproof! Decent Pics

Michael Cain, Amazon
25 November 2009
  • Summary: I took the camera on a couple boat trips, and even went body surfing with it, and it held up well. The camera was rugged, as advertised. It didn't mind getting wet. Pictures were decent, not great, quality, but easy enough to tweak with freeware.

Un bon appareil... hors de l'eau

derferic, Ciao
26 September 2009
  • Summary: Heureux possesseur du FT1 pendant 1 mois je dois dire que cet appareil effectue de très belles photos. Avantages: - Rapide, bonne ergonomie, il s'en tire très bien même par manque de luminosité.
  • Pros: look, construction, rapidité, sensibilité
  • Cons: Buée sur l'objectif, manque d'étanchéité, trappe à batterie s'ouvre facilement

Sensible à la Corrosion et à la Buée en mer.

Brainwork, Ciao
13 September 2009
  • Summary: Après avoir longuement hésité entre le Canon D10 et le Lumix FT1, j'ai finalement opté pour le FT1 qui avait un look plus conventionnel et un design plus compact. C'est un très bon appareil en complément de mon D700, qui prend de belles photos en utilisation "normale" (hors de l'eau) mais qui a la...
  • Pros: Belles photos
  • Cons: Buée et corrosion
