The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS2 is a solid offering from this company. This camera competes with the Olympus and Sony models in the same range. It also has a very comparable price. At 14.1 megapixels with image stabilization this camera is very competitive. It is built for durability and to be used and abused out doors. If you are planning a trip in which most of the time you'll be out doors this camera will be a very reliable partner.
It's capable of high definition movie recording which is very attractive if the images produced are real quality. It is designed to be shockproof, waterproof, dust proof, and even freeze proof. This means that you can use it in all types of outdoor conditions. When using underwater this camera is good to a depth of 33 feet. As compared to the other cameras this is excellent performance. Think of the active movies you can take while underwater with this camera.
The image stabilization with this camera has an additional feature that doubles the handshake correction for stabilizing the image. This has the affect of greatly cutting down on blurry images that are taken at night. Anyone who is used a digital camera at night can identify with this. You think that you are taking great pictures and recording beautiful images but when you look at the images at home you see that you did not do a very good job. This feature in the Panasonic Lumix gets rid of that problem. But don't take my word for it, read the reviews below.
