Summary: Nothing but problems with this camera. It is not shock proof by any means, and I've returned 3 of them for warranty service within a 15 month time frame. The first time occurred when I took the camera rafting in Columbia.
Summary: I've had this camera for about 6 months. It's rugged, takes reasonable (but below average) pictures, and is somewhat waterproof. I primarily used it at surface level in the ocean and carefully cleaned it according to the instructions after each use.
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.
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!
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.
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..
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.
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
