I bought this camera for a vacation in Hawaii and specifically for snorkeling. WOW! is all I can say. It performed extremely well and some of the fish pictures are spectacular. If there was a way to post a picture, one might see what I mean. The only criticism I might have are the controls. They could be just slightly larger for underwater use but then I think about those expensive enclosures for regular cameras with big controls and this becomes the unit of choice for me.

We had to purchase this camera onboard the ship because I had left mine at home:( This turned out to be a good thing! This camera is easy to use. It takes great stills, panoramic shots, and great video! It's even waterproof for most any weather you might run into. I'm glad I left my old camera at home:)
Mine has never let me down
You get a camera like this even if you don't plan on scuba diving, taking it skiing or dropping it often. You get it because you figure if it's designed to endure those things, it'll endure the occasional bump and dusty bag or linty pocket. And mine has. I've shot with my version of this camera (a slightly older model) in rain, on hot days and outside during the 2016 blizzard my part of the USA's East Coast got this year. It has a great variety of settings but I've been happy shooting it on Intelligent Auto about 95 percent of the time. The images are consistently sharp enough to shame the most high end smart phone's and I've never been a technical glitch. A great camera that I recommend to all.
Best camera ever
I now own 2 of these and purchased one for my nieces. I had one and dropped it in the deep snow while out with my son. It stayed out there for 3 months thru winter in freezing temperatures. I ended up buying a new one because I figured if and when we found it, there was no way it would work. Come spring time we found the camera and it still works great. I couldn't believe it. I use this camera constantly. Waterskiing, snowmobiling, snorkeling, dusty grass drag races, and never have an issue. We love it and recommend it to everyone.
6 years and still my favourite
I bought a TS2 6 years ago and it is still my favourite and go-to camera. I got it to go SCUBA diving with (it goes 33m) but it also takes great images of my art work for quick and easy documentation. My father, was a serious hobby photographer and taught me that a good lens is key to a good camera. Leica makes one of the best lenses out there, so the combination of Lumix + Leica is a very good, reasonably priced camera. I keep thinking maybe a should get a an upgrade, but honestly, there is no reason to do that if my current one works great!
Highly Recommend for the Rugged Adventurer
I've had this product for over 5 years. The first year I had to get it replaced because it had water damage and it was the first time using it in the water. Panasonic quickly replaced it and I haven't had an issue since. I am a travel blogger so I need a durable, reliable camera. I have used it snorkeling, scuba diving (w/ an underwater housing), snow boarding, paragliding, and more.
Great waterproof camera
This is my go to waterproof camera. I've used it in the pool, while snorkeling, and on rainy days. It captures really high quality shots and performs well underwater. You have to play with the settings a little to get the color correction you prefer, but it gets the job done. Just make sure you clean it if you use it in salt water!
Good small waterproof camera
I was looking for a point-n-shoot waterproof camera and I found this Panasonic one. It takes good pictures and very small to fit in my fishing vest. Overall it is a good buy.
Good tough camera
I bought this camera so I could take pictures at the beach and pool without worrying about dropping it or getting it wet. It takes good outdoor pictures. It does not have a large zoom and the low light pictures are only ok. It is perfect for what I wanted though.
This is my EDC camera when I go motorcycling. Takes decent
This is my EDC camera when I go motorcycling. Takes decent photos except if any sun is hitting the lens. Tough and will take lots of pictures on a single charge. Not a SLR but for the price a very good camera I can depend on.
