  • 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

  • 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: 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. 1st set of pics a little water was in the battery compartment but dried it out good overnite. took underwater pics the next day and after that - no water in compartment. seemed fine - still worked after that. still working now at home.

Fantasic Camera (if you read the book)

  • 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. I also echo other reviews that the lens position takes a little getting used to and you WILL have a few shots early on with your finger in the picture.

Good choice

  • 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.

Decent for a waterproof camera

don y, Amazon
13 December 2010
  • 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. Obviously not a worst case gritty salty sandy beach scenario that people are complaining about leaks on, but Panasonic/Lumix had so so so many notes on foreign debris in gaskets and such so that it seems you would be doomed if you attempted to switch...
