  • Excerpt: I bought this camera to use around my welding studio and out on the road hitting garage sales etc. Over the last three years I have taken well over ten thousand photos with it. It seriously still looks like new and have never had a case for it. I often carry it in my back pocket when I am out and about town garage sailing for the day. Plus it is always kicking around on my welding bench are area exposed to lots of fine metal dust heat etc.

Great pics in the water

  • 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. I've tried everything to clean it off and it won't come off. The video quality is great too. I dropped it down to 4 stars because of the annoying and ugly rubber covering.

Good For Intended Use

Rex G. Kemp "Desert Ghost", Amazon
22 May 2011
  • 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. Video was good when one can be stationary. We attempted to use the camera while zip lining and it often had difficulty focusing at 40-50 mph. Underwater shots were very good, both video and still shots.

  • Excerpt: I bought this camera a year ago and found it to be perfect for my active lifestyle. I took it sky diving, wakeboarding, scuba diving (only to 35 ft), skiing and everything in between. I speak in past tense as I left it on a plane back from Vegas a couple months ago. For such a small camera the picture quality is very good, I have blown several of the shots up and framed them for my apartment. The camera was very easy to use underwater, and took decent active shots.

great waterproof camera

  • 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. (to get the full manual you have to print a pdf file from a provided disc, seems a little cheap but more and more companies are doing this) Underwater this camera worked great, I lived in the water...

  • Summary: We bought the camera for Christmas, and have had it is the swimming pool a couple of times and am amazed at the quality of the pictures. The camera is a little bulky, but not too bad.

HD + Waterproofing!

Psychology Major, Amazon

  • Summary: Well, it's still got a ways to go but I like it... I've owned 2 previous digital waterproof cameras before and they both needed improvement. I buy underwater cameras for the main purpose of going underwater & taking photos or video. First was the Olympus waterproof to 15 feet and the next one was the Olympus 770SW = essentially the same but you can go deeper underwater. Both of these excelled at being able to fit in a pair of board shorts and looked really sleek.

Great camera, minor issues.

  • Summary: Great camera as others have said. With respect to the quality of the pictures, keep in mind that this is a waterproof camera so there are compromises. I love it but there are a few pointers I want to share with new buyers. I bought the orange model. Nice. Cool looking. But when I do closeup shots, the subject gets an orange glow. Not Panasonic's fault, of course. What do you expect when you buy an orange camera? I was not aware of that when I got it.

Excellent underwater video and photos, but note a few important exceptions

  • Summary: I have been very happy with the image and video quality of the Lumix TS2 and it seems very robust so far. The underwater video quality is just stunning. I'm glad I did my research first as I learned from others mistakes before using my camera. Here are a few things you might want to watch out for. 1. All waterproof cameras will leak if you use them carelessly. Never open up the camera doors when at the beach or pool.
