An amazing travel camera!
9 September 2012
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: This is to replace my fleet of Coolpix 990 s, that I used for 10+ years to list on ebay. this is the first new generation camera that can do decent macro work, and durable enough to be kicked around the warehouse. I am looking for a silicone skin for it to protect the lens, and display.
Summary: Takes great pictures in low light. Especially at school concerts and events on stage. I like the facial recognition program. I would change the location of the on/off button as it is too easily pressed when wanting to take a picture.
Summary: I needed a nice waterproof/shockproof camera and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS1D fits the bill perfectly. It is built sturdy and takes very good still photos as well as videos. I haven't tested it underwater yet so I can't review that part. But as far as operating the camera, very simple to operate .
Summary: A few weeks ago, on the beach at Panama City, I suddenly realized that the brisk breeze carried both surf and turf- water droplets and sand- two enemies of the expensive Canon I had in my hand. The search was on. I have SD- not another type storage card- Sony, Apple, some Olympus out. Not going to scuba dive, or use in blizzards- extreme cameras out. Want image stabilization, good toughness and water resistance, quality images, ease of use.
Summary: It was time for my 11-yr-old daughter's birthday. I started the camera search at an under $100 on-sale model and after hours of learning what is available today settled on this one. So far we are very happy. It's main selling point was the ability to handle rough treatment - shock, dust, water. With no experience with higher end models, I can't say how this measures up, but the reviews were favorable and at a very good price.
