Yeah, but you still lose shutter speed.  And the ND filter doesn't affect DOF.  That's my main beef with the TG-1 - it enables the ND filter when it could've used a faster shutter speed instead, and the only way for me to force the faster shutter speed is to raise the ISO.

Even auto choose F8 is OK if what you said is correct.  Actually after reading TG-2 manual I don't find any mention of ND filter

It's okay from the point of view of diffraction, but not when you want to capture fast action in broad daylight, and suddenly find yourself at 1/250.

This sounds pretty misserable to be honest, I will be taking it cyclying and surfing a lot, and will need a fast shutter in bright light often. Do any of these tough cameras have Tv mode? I assume becasue there are so few aperture "sizes" it wouldnt really be usefull? What does the sports mode do?
