Summary: I love this camera! It is just as advertised - waterproof and shatter proof. It also takes great pictures and video. This is one of my favorite things I own - I have even lent if to my dad who wanted to take pictures on a fishing trip to Iceland. Great camera and multi-functional!
Summary: Wow, this camera is a total workhorse. We've had it now for several years and it has been phenomenal. I've taken it through the desert, mountains, and even under water and it still takes fantastic photos. Pros: - Simple to use menu - Great photos - Seems like it's everything proof. Amazingly durable - Compact size - Light weight Cons: - None I can't really complain, it does the job every time.
Summary: For 5 years this camera has delivered amazing quality pictures and though its internal storage may be slightly outdated now, the capability to easily switch SD cards makes that mostly a non-issue. I have dropped, kicked, drop-kicked, submerged, thrown, exposed to significantly freezing, dusty and sandy environments and yet this device has persevered in perfect working order!
Summary: Use this camera everywhere and for everything. It is great. My daughter has dropped it and we bring it in the pool the ocean, nothing is stopping it. Just need to make sure to rinse it off after a day of fun and let it air dry but great purchase overall.
Summary: I use my iPhone for most pics these days, but to be able to zoom, and more importantly, get it wet, this baby takes excellent pics, is durable, and yes, I have used it in, around and under the water successfully. For these reasons, there is still a place of a point and shoot camera in my life.
Excerpt: The Panasonic DMC-TS1 is an excellent choice of camera for someone seeking a travel camera. I used this for two major trips last year, and it served me very well. Picture quality is very good for a small sensor of its size, especially outdoors, and I was very satisfied with prints of my trip from the camera. Indoor picture quality is so-so, which is really the only main weakness, but not unusual for a camera of its size.
Excerpt: The panasonic TS-1 was released in April 2009 and I had mine in hand days later. This was the camera which I had been waiting for and it had finally arrived. The year before, I had spent a long disney vacation lugging around an entry level Digital DSLR and a Sony Handycam which I had purchased several years before.
Excerpt: I love my camera, is small enough to carry it everywhere, shockprove and waterprove!! is always on my purse and I never miss a moment. I'm very happy with my purshase. But If I had to complain about something, that will be the battery life. It seems that I have to charge it constantly, I'm even considering buying a second battery to carry with me at all times...
Excerpt: the panasonic lumix is light weight and fits right into your shirt pocket or trouser pocket. it comes in a rainbow of color choices. Oh and let me tell you it is also very,very durable. I would go as far as to compare it to a timex watch, you know "it takes a licking and keeps on ticking". Did i mention economical. Reviewer is an employee or otherwise affiliated with the brand.
Summary: I purchased this camera about 1 ½ years ago, primarily for photos taken from a Kayak. I have shot well over 1000 pictures with this camera and I have not been disappointed with its performance. It has been in the duck blind, the pheasant field, the ocean for underwater pictures, and on the ski hill during snowstorms. It weathers everything and takes good pictures. It has been dropped, dunked, taken into salt water, and it still works like a charm.
