So far I have used the DMCTS4 in salt water in Dominican Republic and in the heavily clornated pool. I carefully followed the tedious instruction on cleaning the gasket and rinching in clean water after each use and eveything worked fin. Photo taken in auto mode and SCN mode were sharp and color perfect. Vidieos are high quality, both in water and out of water. The Time Laps feature is a fun option I used for sunsets and beginninig of a storm. Night shooting mode is super even when hand held. Battery life is limited using GPS but can be disabled. I bought two 1500ma batteries to extend battery life.

We bought this camera to go on our first family trip to the Virgin Islands. We chose this camera as I was already familar with Lumix line and by the write up we found in consumer reports. I was careful to read the instructions, as I had read reviews where people had problems and thier warrenty was void because they did something wrong. I was EXTREMLY careful to follow instructions. My husband took my two boys snorkling for the first time and was excited to capture it on the camera. He was taking pictures when all of a sudden it stopped working. He thought the battery had run out. When he came back, I was careful to soak in fresh water as directed dried completly and opened up the camera to try and change the battery (we had bought another). That was when I discovered there was water inside the camera!!!! Needless to say we were without a camera for the remainder of the trip. Now we only have our memories.....no pictures!!!! I am done with Lumix, my other Lumix had broke as well.

Comments about Panasonic Lumix 12.1 Megapixel Blue Digital Camera:
I bought the camera for my snorkeling holidays but at the first snorkeling trip and after 20 pictures the camera stopped working. Water was in the camera. I handeld the camera with care, I read the manual carefully and I didn't anything wrong. Panasonic refuses guarantee service because they says I did something wrong with the camera. That is not true - the camera is just not OK and I want my money back.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

My take on the DMC-TS4
By Kayak Fisherman
from Temple, TX
The good is the camera takes very good to excellent pictures. The bad is charging via USB is not an option. The ugly is the price and the supporting software. Picture options are well represented. Some decent SLR's do not have as many settings or options for precision or situation shooting. The bad is the lack of a second battery. One would think for the cost of the unit and the inability to charge via USB a second battery would be provided. The Supporting software should not have been mentioned honestly. It is subpar to the quality of the camera and takes away from the experience. I have not had any issues arise to need customer support so I cannot comment on that aspect.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
exactly what my daughter wanted

I followed the instructions as well. After using it 4 times snorkeling...the screen started to flicker in and out. It's a cool camera with nice features...I just don't think it's made to handle the claimed specs. The screen has come back and I'll give it another try. Hopefully it doesn't leak again.
Purchased this camera for an upcoming Elk hunt.After review of some pictures at home i was surprised to learn that the images were grainy.I own other Panasonic compact cameras that are great. What good is a waterproof, shockproof camera with bad images? I returned this camera and purchased the regular compact Lumix 20X Zoom and pictures are great.

We use this camera mounted to our paddles and snap photos whilst running class III ~ V whitewater. The camera spends the entire time wet.

from riverdale, california
I bought this camera last June 2012 thinking that I can use it underwater in preparation of me and my husbands trip. Last saturday tried using it underwater and to my dismay water leakage occurred. I wonder how it happened when I was very sure that I did all the check all that there is to check before using it underwater. In fact I studied the manual very well. Now my camera is at the service center and I dont know if it can be fix. And I lost the opportunity to capture our underwater experience.

TS3 was better
I have owned the TS2 and the TS3. They both had great features like HDR mode and high speed burst mode. The TS4 does NOT have these modes. This is very disappointing. The GPS works much faster and the images quality is still very good. I am sad to say that not having the HDR and High Speed burst modes, I may return this camera and get the older TS3. Panasonic, PLEASE fix this with a simple firmware update.
