Reviews and Problems with Panasonic LUMIX DMC-TS20
Showing 1-7 of 7
Works ok in water, horrible picture quality, terrible in anything other than very bright light
14 March 2014
Summary: The underwater feature has worked ok for us, although I see dozens of complaints from other reviewers about that issue. My bone to pick with this camera is the terrible, almost unusable picture quality.
Summary: So I read the reviews saying it broke the first or second time people used it and I thought it was just people didn't follow the directions. Nope. Broke on me the second time. I first tested it in the surf in San Diego and no problems. It was ready for Hawaii.
Summary: I will wait to see how the replacement unit operates. the camera started acting strange and the viewing screen would flash on and off rapidly so you could not see what you were trying to photograph nor review the phos takes. Occasionally it would work correctly then start flashing again?????
Summary: Pro: nice size, good display screen, sturdy feel Con: rarely took a sharp picture, refused to focus at times First the good part. I took a lot of pictures with this camera on vacation. It slid into a pocket easily, had a bright screen, and didn't attract attention so I got a lot of candid shots.
Summary: Got this camera to replace a Pentax Optio W-30 I had used for years while kayak fishing. I am very disappointed in the quality of the pictures while the camera is on Auto. Way too dark or too light, blurred pictures and just generally not the quality I am use to.
Summary: I really wanted to like this camera, which I picked up for a beach, pool, kids type point and shoot. Unfortunately, the image quality was mediocre at best, with soft images, lots of flare, poor color rendition, and little ability to control camera settings.
Summary: I have to admit, that I wanted to like this camera. It was to replace my old and now, not working, Olympus SW720- a precursor to the "tough" cameras. That camera went through a lot and kept working, till the screen went white for no apparent reason, but I digress... This camera is thin & light.
