Summary: Otherwise, "scene modes are typical, with options like Portrait, Food, Sunset, Pet, and two varieties of dedicated Baby modes," says Snow at DigitalCameraInfo.com. "There's nothing here that can't be found on another camera. As for picture effects, there is only one: the highly fashionable Miniature Effect." The TS20 comes with A/V and USB cables. As with most under-$150 cameras, there's no HDMI jack for easy viewing on an HDTV.
Pros: Claims to be waterproof, shockproof, dustproof and freezeproof, Very slim and lightweight
Cons: Photo quality ranges from mediocre to poor in tests, LCD is hard to see at an angle, Some owners complain of quality, durability issues
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.
Excerpt: Panasonic's "Lifeproof" TS-series has two new models for 2012; the top of the line TS4, and the entry level DMC-TS20.

The TS20 has been designed with the novice in mind with all sorts of iA (intelligent Auto) Modes to help you take the best picture regardless of your environment's lighting conditions.
