Showing 1-10 of 52
I was sent the wrong camera, but like the wrong one better now. And these cameras are pretty great, too.

Summary: OK... I'm giving this 3-stars ONLY because of the fact that this was NOT the product I had originally bought. Apparently, if they are out of the product you pay for, they simply send you the next step up instead.
Summary: I love the color size shape and FUNCTION of this camera. I went snorkeling and took great photos underwater, that is, when the fish stayed still enough. Be very careful however to make sure the doors are sealed. I was concerned where the springs on the battery compartment mesh.
Summary: Picture quality is excellent. Taken it to many snorkeling and beach/pool trips. The underwater photos are great. Don't forget to white balance even underwater. Don't forget to rinse after the beach or pool. I think that because I didn't, there is a very tough water drop stain on the lens window.
Summary: While this camera would not replace my dedicated video camera or my digital SLR, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS2 did a credible job in situations where I would not take a more expensive camera. Still shots were more than adequate. Sound pick up was surprisenly good.
Summary: Just got back from a week in Honduras, first real world test of this camera, and it performed excellently. Found the camera overall pretty easy to use, I didn't dive into some of the more specific technical settings, but found it to be pretty easy to use without the manual.
Summary: just got back from British Virgin Islands sailing on a 48ft katamaran for 9 days. camera was great for underwater pics & others. just haven't figured where the flash is. great for beach & when sailing. was watertight as far as i could see.
Summary: I like most people like to pull a camera out and snap a picture. One can do that with this camera with moderate success...HOWEVER.....reading the cd that is included with the whole manual is mandatory reading to get the most out of the camera.
Summary: Overall a pretty good camera- good resolution pictures, not crazily bad noise despite pretty high pixel count, stayed waterproof as advertised for (so far) a single use in a pool- didn't push it too hard, only 5ft depth.
Summary: Just got back from first vacation with this camera. If you like an active vacation and/or lifestyle and dont want to worry about carrying around an expensive fragile camera, but still want good pictures, this is the camera for you.
