NOT WATERPROOF!

Brian Ski, Amazon
9 September 2010
  • Summary: Just got back from Maui. Took it snorkling down to 15 ft and inner lens fogged up afterward. Water also inside battery compartment. 1st time I used it. Made sure nothing was prohibiting the seal, but still leaked. Sad. Also the lens gets dirty and scratched really fast (no cover from elements at all, always exposed.) Picture quality wasn't as good as my Nikon Coolpix.

Does not take kayaking video that's worth watching!

  • Summary: It is a great sport camer for picure taking. However, fine print in user manual says image stablization does not work for moving sujects --- translation: you have to SIT/STAND STILL and DO NOT PAN for the image stablization to work when you take video! Otherwise the video footage shakes so much it is not worth watching!

Second Rate Pictures

  • Summary: I was convinced by several of my outdoorsey friends that I needed a weatherproof camera so I bought this on the basis of reviews for a backpacking trip to the canyons of Utah. I also brought along my old smaller lighter much cheaper Canon 850IS. I left the Pana hanging around my neck and snapped away- 600 pics in 4 days. I was pleased with its very fast response and it kept on ticking even in dirty and wet conditions.

Great at first-

  • Summary: I bought this camera 3 weeks ago. I live in the Bahamas on a remote cay, so I really wanted a camera that didn't involve taking housing on and off throughout my excursions. I bought the Panasonic Lumix TS2 after reading great reviews. It is a nice camera, takes some good shots...as far as any kind of macro underwater it is no good, and action shots underwater are also a lost cause.

  • Summary: I had the camera in my ski trousers and fell over shattering the glass. Panasonic tell me it was improper use - great, just great.

hält leider nicht ganz was sie verspricht

maximilian_mustermann, Ciao
5 March 2011
  • Summary: Habe mir die Cam zum Skifahren und Biken gekauft, da ich dazu ungern die große und schwere Spiegelreflex mitnehme. In verschiedenen Testberichten von Outdoorkameras schnitt sie immer gut ab und überzeugt mit ordentlicher Bildqualität (was bei innen liegendem Objektiv nicht selbstverständlich ist). In diesem Punkt und ebenso mit der Akkulaufzeit, Menuführung und dem Funktionsumfang bin ich auch sehr zufrieden.
  • Pros: Für die Größe gute Bildqualität, lange Akkulaufzeit, schneller AF
  • Cons: Kein Objektivschutz, nicht mit Handschuhen bedienbar

JAMAS COMPREIS UNA PANASONIC

10 January 2011
  • Summary: Despues de pagar unos 350 euros por una Panasonic FT2 y con tan solo un año de antiguedad, se me queda cara de bobo al ver como la camara mas que acuatica, es como el TITANIC ( puro oxido) y encima el servicio tecnico me dice que no me cubre la garantia pues he cerrado mal las tapas o que las he abierto bajo el agua ( ya ven , no tengo otra cosa que hacer). Es decir que con un año de antiguedad he perdido 350 Euros, asi que mi consejo es que JAMAS COMPREIS UNA PANASONIC.

  • Excerpt: Был куплен на замену SONY DSC-H2, в качестве карманного "всегда с мной", отзыв о котором тоже есть на сайте. Первое впечатление от увиденных фото: я не так что-то делаю, второе: где-то я уже это видел. Пробовал когда-то DMC-FS10. FT2 -это тот же аппарат в другом корпусе, плюс ещё программные рюшки. Надо сказать на дисплее всё прилично выглядит, а вот при увеличении... Мегапиксели на пользу не пошли, изображение размазанное, нет чёткости.
  • Pros: Крепко сбит, надежный на вид, объектив не выдвигается, в кармане помещается, чехол силиконовый. В общем конструкция. Видео понравилось.
  • Cons: Качество фото. Неуправляемый. Неудачное расположение кнопок трансфокатора
