Camera Review Panasonic Lumix Dmc-ts2 Review 14.1 Mp Waterproof Digital Camera Silver, Free Shipping
Posting ads for 7 years
I read just about every professional review I could find for waterproof digital cameras, and I was just about set to buy the Panasonic DMC-TS1 until I saw a number of user-reviews that said the TS1 leaked for them in saltwater. I wanted a camera that I could use for snorkeling, so this was a concern until I saw the release of this Panasonic DMC-TS2 with greatly improved "toughness”. It is now waterproof to 33 feet along with being shockproof and freezeproof, so I jumped on it. Canon makes a really nice waterproof camera too (Canon D10), but the Panasonic TS2 has similar picture quality (these two cameras are ahead of the pack in this category)and is MUCH more pocketable and attractive. I love that this camera looks like a regular compact point-and-shoot, is very rugged and waterproof, is pocketable, takes great pictures, has a 4.6x optical zoom, and a ton of other features I won't even get into.
When I first got the camera, I took comparison pictures with this camera, an old Canon SD200, and my newer Fujifilm F200EXR. This camera far exceeded the old Canon and was very comparable if not better at some pictures than the very good Fujifilm. Ok, that was a good start, now to see how it holds up in the saltwater for several hours every day on a Caribbean cruise…
After a week of snorkeling, no leaks whatsoever!…
I was planning on just bringing this camera when I go to the beach, go to the pool, go flyfishing, and go on backcountry skiing trips, but after taking close to 1000 pictures last week on my Caribbean cruise (about half of them underwater, and down to about 20 feet), it just might have become my everyday camera as well!
If you need a rugged, very waterproof camera, that is still small enough to go everywhere with you, AND takes great pictures, I would definitely recommend this one.
Oh, and if you will be snorkeling or boating, I would recommend the Olympus Floating Camera Strap. It worked perfectly with this camera.Camera Review Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS2 Review 14.1 MP Waterproof Digital Camera with 4.6x Optical Image Stabilized Zoom with 2.7-Inch LCD (Silver)
