Panasonic TS20 Digital Camera Review
18 May 2014
Summary: Panasonic's latest budget waterproof camera is facing serious competition from Fujifilm's XP50, which seems to be the better choice on paper. Are the TS20's small size, stunning looks, and wider zoom range enough to save it from obscurity?
Conclusion: If you're looking for a rugged pocket shooter that you can take anywhere without worry, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS20 is an inexpensive option. Its lens isn't the sharpest, and noise reduction smears away image detail at higher ISOs, but the camera performs admirably in good light.
Pros: Inexpensive for a rugged camera. Short shutter lag. Wide angle lens. Waterproof, shockproof, freezeproof, and dustproof. Good high ISO performance.
Cons: Soft lens. Not as rugged as competitors. Video limited to 720p resolution.
Summary: And while the TS20 has a larger 16.1 megapixel CCD sensor (compared to the TS4's 12.1 megapixels), the TS20 lacks built-in GPS, has a shorter 4x optical zoom, and only shoots 720p HD video. The TS20's Waterproof rating of 16 feet and Shockproof rating of 5 feet are both lower than the TS4.
Pros: iAuto shooting mode is accurate and easy in all situations, Dedicated Video Capture Button is always ready to record, "Tough" features: Waterproof, Dustproof, Shockproof and Freezeproof protect the camera, Great image quality, Mega O.I.S. is very helpful when shooting on the move, Nice, Bright 2....
Cons: Trouble focusing up close under water without manually turning Macro focus on, Some noise in all images / Normal with most 16-Megapixel image sensors, Screen can be hard to see underwater, No HDMI output for HD movies on an HDTV
Summary: Panasonic Lumix TS20 è una fotocamera digitale compatta, equipaggiata con sensore CCD da 16 megapixel, zoom ottico 4x, modulo GPS per la geolocalizzazione delle immagini, resistente all'acqua e capace di registrare filmati a risoluzione 720p
