DMC-TS5 is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Satisfied After reading reviews online for numerous point and shoot cameras, I decided on the Lumix DMC-TS5. I already had 2 other digital cameras but wanted one for work that would fit into my outer jacket/vest pocket. I find the camera easy to use with excellent photo results. The fact it is also a tough camera is a bonus and I know it will serve my needs very well as part of my work in oilfield construction. I am very happy with my purchase!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disposable Camera If you are buying this camera to take underwater shots, and I suppose you are, otherwise you would be buying a simpler camera, have in mind that this is a disposable camera. Water will get into your camera. If not the first time you go underwater, it will eventually. The camera doesn't keep up with its promises. Mine, for example never dove more than 2m (6.6ft#, it never fell on the ground above 1m #3.3ft# and yet they claim the camera to be shock proof up to 2m #6.6ft). I purchase my camera in Sept/2013 and little over a year, the smallest amount of water would leak into it scraping the whole camera. Note that I would not dive every single day. If I entered water 6 or 7 occasions, it was too much. Totally disposable I would not recommend even because warranty will not cover water leakage. Go figure, if they are selling this as waterproof!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from There Are More Than Just Us In Tis World All of this is because of a employee who though they couldnt do it, BUT THEY DID. So i went to Cuba recenty, and we did do alot of tourist things. So i can tell you from an average person that this is an amazing camera. Learning to use it a first is a big deal, but it's the same with any camera. This is my first review on a product so just listen to me please and take note of what I'm saying. This camera saved the photographic memories of my first vacation outside of Canada. Let me give you a break down of what happened and take it upon yourself to decide. So my Bro his girlfriend and iu went to Cuba and decided to take and expadition that involed a rocky coastline, a small city, a farm, a ranch (I know pretty much the same), and Cave Diving. So let me tell you for me it takes amazing pictures and It's Auto Intelligent is pretty amazing. But what i want to talk about is the Water Proof Technology. So during our tourist adventures we all went cave diving (you can probably guess what happened) the water was crystal clear and their were only 3 other people in the water at the time. We decided to explore that cave and we were doing pretty good until the transfer of camera between two people. Not 5 seconds later i realized i drop the camera, when i did realize though i dived with no goggles or anyrthing and saw it's hazy glow getting deeper and deeper, I could not persue it any more. (by the way I aint no physical specimen or anything, the last sport i did was coach soccer and win the championship for and U14 boys club in 2013) My bro and i tried to get it while the light was still on but we had no success. OH LET ME TELL YOU THIS WAS 22M DEEP OR ABOUT 72FT. More than what i could stand by the the manual. I thought all was lost, that camera lights whent out and just blackness under a ridge. I learned two this that day take that back actually six things. Number One: Get A flotaion Devivce for this Camera Number Two: I Can free dive nearly 73 FT (that is amazing for me, Im so proud) Number Three: I Will Risk My Life For A Camera Number Four: Respect people no matter who they are Nuimber Five: Memories Are more important than a picture Number Six: Live Life Till You Have Given It Al It Has To Offer

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Lumix Cameras I had three Panasonic digital cameras in the past and currently own the latest model. I just love everything about it especially the color and resolution... and the wifi capability when transferring photos with the phone is the best feature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Camera in Class! I'm a photographer and wanted something to use when I didn't want to expose my Nikon D7000 to the elements as well as underwater use. But above all I wanted EXCELLENT pictures and expected reasonable video quality from under the sea to skiing. After taking approximately 2,500 pictures in all conditions over a period of more than 12 months, I share the following. I got exactly what I expected of this camera and have recommended it to two friends who made the purchase and were also very pleased with it. I lent it to a friend for a cruise, and his family was also very pleased with the camera performance. I doubt they push the camera limits as I tend to and probably just set it on Intelligent Auto. BTW, it works fine in this mode. Previously, I had a Pentax Optio W60, 10M pixel it sits in my closet, I can't even bring myself to sell this to anyone because it is so bad! The picture quality was horrible although durable for the short time I used it. After reading consumer reports and THIS camera was one of their top rated, so I bought it online without trying it out first and was ecstatic with the results. From under the sea to skiing it performs flawlessly in both pictures and video and I've taken some great sunset pictures as well as other land pictures. I sometimes use it for basic photography when I could be using the Nikon because I know it performs as I expect. I tend to abuse this camera and almost consider it almost disposable, it has been dropped on concrete, subject to extreme cold. left in a hot vehicle, and I've taken it to 45' below sea level although not rated for this and it's seen it's share of sand. I've never had a problem with the camera results. The case is scratched and dented, but with no detriment to the performance. A quick disclaimer: I'm really only interested in the photographic results and found the GPS a pain to use and it does drain the battery. Same with the altimeter. The WiFi took a while to connect and I really never used it, preferring to just connect it to my PC with the cable and download the pictures. I did use the remote control from a smart phone, but I had to be within viewing distance of the camera in order for it to work and not too far away, so it was tried once and then forgotten. But it can be configured to automatically upload pictures to your PC, tablet, phone or the cloud. It's just not my thing and I didn't use these features. My biggest complaint is battery life. With it on all the time and taking pictures and video's, I'd kill the battery in about 1.5 hours. My second complaint is the proximity of the video record button to the picture button. {I can't see close underwater to be able to read the display.} Many times I found that I was shooting a video when I meant to take a picture. In sharing my pictures with other divers, they were also surprised at the quality and color of my pictures. One man had the latest and best Nikon (can't recall the model). We compared underwater pictures and his quality, especially color was not up to par with this camera. He said he'll be selling his Nikon and buying this model. I agreed with the reviews from Dice32, TechGirl, and rgeorge911 and tried not to repeat their comments, but they were spot on as well. as for the folks who only used it in less than 10' of water, following all directions, it seems odd to me that I took it to 45' without leaking issues. For the man who bought it for his daughter and they are following directions and not taking it into the pool (chlorine); I say don't worry about it. JUST rinse it off ASAP. Mine has been exposed to chlorine, although not for very long and I did rinse it well, as I do after salt water exposure. When Panasonic comes out with an updated version, I'll be one of the first to buy it and sell this one to a friend or online.

  • How long should my battery last?
    CIPA figures which range from 300-400 photos (depending on the camera model). CIPA measurement methods use a very controlled method to measure battery life. The procedure takes a specific number of shots at a fixed interval, with a fixed ratio of flash photos. While this method provides a standardized measurement that can be used to compare two cameras, it's far from how the camera is actually used. Life expectancy can be affected by any of the following: If the flash is used, the total number of photos can decrease by 30-40% If the camera has GPS, you can expect up to a 50% reduction in battery life. If the customer has no immediate need for GPS disable the feature in the camera's menu options. While the battery saver feature will turn the LCD panel off after a preset time (and place the camera into sleep mode) the camera still draws some power from the battery. We suggestion, turn the camera after each shot. At social gatherings, try and minimize passing the camera around the table to have others look at the photos. The LCD panel consumes ~30% of the total power.

  • What size SD Card can I use in my camera?
    Cameras with a manufacturing date of 2006 or before can only use Standard SD Cards (2GB Max). Models manufactured from 2007 to 2009 can only use Standard SD Cards and SDHC Cards (32GB Max). Cameras manufactured 2010 and later are also compatible to the SDXC memory card format. While your camera?s owner?s manual may state a maximum size, that size was the largest that was available when your camera was manufactured. Any currently available SDXC card, which will eventually increase to maximum of 2 TB is compatible. As the maximum size increases, to 2 TB, we do not anticipate any need for firmware updates.

  • Why am I unable to view the photos on my camera after I have deleted some files from the SD card using the computer?
    It is not recommended that you delete or modify any photos on your SD memory card using your PC if you plan to move them back to the camera. Doing so can damage the file allocation table and your camera will not be able to read the files. You should immediately copy the remaining photos from your SD card to your PC. After doing so, using your camera, reformat the SD card.
