Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS20

 

If you're looking for a rugged pocket shooter that you can take anywhere without worry, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS20 is an inexpensive option. Its lens isn't the sharpest, and noise reduction smears away image detail at higher ISOs, but the camera...

Inexpensive for a rugged camera. Short shutter lag. Wide angle lens. Waterproof, shockproof, freezeproof, and dustproof. Good high ISO performance

Soft lens. Not as rugged as competitors. Video limited to 720p resolution

The TS20 isn't the speediest rugged camera to come through the PCMag Lab, but it's not a dog either. It can start up and grab a shot in 2 seconds, shoots one frame per second in continuous drive mode, and records a short 0.1 second shutter lag. The...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS20Digital Camera Review

 

Like the TS10 before it, Panasonic's new Lumix DMC-TS20 aims to bring a high-performance, adventure-proof camera to the low end of the market. Design and some features have been carried down from the TS4, this camera's better and more expensive cousin,...

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS20 is certainly marketable. It’s got some impressive durability specs and, for some people (not journalists), it’s cheap enough to purchase on a whim, maybe en route to that warm-weather vacation. Sadly the appeal ends there.

Small, well-built, and durable brushed aluminum body ; Easy to use both underwater and in normal shooting conditions ; Great features for the price

Lackluster image quality throughout ISO range ; Lens has relatively small aperture and is slow to zoom in and out ; Video could be better

Inexpensive rugged camera, limited by image quality problems.

Very durable for the price

Color accuracy is way off; Poor resolution of detail; Noisy, even at minimum ISO

Poor service

 

I have worked with smaller companies that would work on fixing a problem and that was Newegg 7 years ago.

The camera is great in every way

The shipping was a fiasco, normally it takes 1 day to get delivered using UPS and 2 days by US mail but this time it to me 6 days and went 1200 miles out of it’s way. I know things happen but Newegg people that answer the phone either has no training...

I use the camera primarily to take photos of fish that I catch. I can dunk it in the water and get video and still photos. I am still working out all the settings to get the best image quality, especially for the underwater release shots. I don\'t have...
