Summary: Camera worked great both on land and in the water. There was no trouble using it after it had been in the water, as I had read in some other reviews. Had some problems, but these would likely be improved with continued use of and familiarization with the camera.

Summary: Good camera, has a tendency to focus on krill, etc underwater rather than the fish (if there is a lot of it), but it's severed me well 80% of the time. This is the first surface water camera I've owned, I've always used a housing on a DSLR, but I just upgraded and the housing was out of stock for my...
Summary: Bought this camera to use while camping and fishing. It was replacing an Olympus TG-839 that I was not happy with the quality on. I am happy with the features, battery and image quality. I haven't tested the waterproof feature yet.

Summary: Camera takes very good pictures. Have not tested durability yet, but overall satisfied. Main negatives are that camera is a little more bulky that previous Lumix and other rugged cameras. Cannot save wifi password; but be reentered every time.
The older version really took a good beating. Salt water/fresh water

Summary: I owned a older version (DMC-TS1) of this camera, bought it for general pictures and to mount on the deck of a kayak. The older version really took a good beating. Salt water/fresh water, tough wipe-outs and "gone wrong" landings in the surf zone.
Summary: Takes good quality video and pictures. It's pretty easy to focus it correctly. The only problem with it is when making videos on Movie Maker, the first second of the video is completely unusable because it freezes.
Summary: Great travel cam, but I wish it had a lens cover. While diving with it, it would occasionally get dragged along coral. It would be nice to have a quick slide on, slide off cover that's easily opened/closed with one hand while diving.
