  • I'd say, the major advantage of the TG-4 is its low(ish) light capability. If you're planning to make it a good-light-only camera, it doesn't buy you much. (Raw aficionados would vehemently ...
  • Those scratched on the back screen are troublesome. My TG-1 had a rubbed out spot there from the rough fabric of my PFD pocket. When I accidentally dropped it on an unlucky pebble - from the ...
  • With the tiny little sensor, light is at a premium, so a faster lens makes a pretty big difference in usability. The TG-4 has aperture-priority mode.  However, you only have three options: ...
  • Well, to be more precise, *I* am the center of the observable universe. But you're one too. Scientifically speaking, of course ;)
  • The earth really is the center of the observable universe.
  • Usually, if you're getting motion blur, that means the camera chose too slow a shutter speed. The camera won't necessarily let you control this directly, so instead, you need to bump up the ISO. Mo ...
  • It's pretty much the only way to get UWA lens underwater without paying $1000 or so.
  • They are all best at something. Panasonic is best at video, Olympus has the fastest lens and the fast AF and overall responsiveness. Nikon has the longest telephoto and can dive the deepest of the ...
  • You phrase it as if "capitalist solution" was a bad thing. The alternatives to capitalism are socialism and dictatorship. Their "solutions" tend to be somewhat harder on the citizens. When was the ...
  • The DOF changes will be hard to see, though they should be there.

    But if you look into the lens from the front of the camera, you can see the aperture itself very plainly. The ND filter is...

  • Oh yeah, remember a week ago you were asking about TG's combination iris / ND filter aperture?
    I can confirm: If you power up the camera in bright light while looking through the front lens, you...

  • Actually, the initial question - "why do you have a gun" was asked by my son, 5 at the time. The man answered "for protection of me and my family". "Hobby" was my term. "Normal" is my impression ...
  • Someone openly carrying a hand gun was next in line to us during a winter festival in a local city park the winter before last.  I was curious, so I asked him why he was armed. Guess what - he's a ...
  • They might, our they might not. This year Panasonic refreshed their TS rugged flagship to the model 6 by adding (drum roll... wait for it...) TWO NEW BODY COLORS!!!

  • They might, or they might not. This year Panasonic refreshed their TS rugged flagship to the model 6 by adding (drum roll... wait for it...) TWO NEW BODY COLORS!!!

    That's all they changed from TS-5.

  • Right. And before you know it, you end up within an inch of a Nikon AW1, or a Sony RX100 in a Meikon housing.
    Why is that extra inch important for a dive camera?

    When kayaking, climbing, skiing,...

  • 128GB is a lot of space. It's well over 6500 raw captures. If you're diving, the battery will limit you to 300-400 frames per dive, tops. That's 15-20 dives.
    Something tells me, if you can afford...

  • Interesting! I never knew how other models make this work. Makes sense. It's not ideal, but better than no control at all.

  • "My point is there are other reasons to open the door of the battery compartment."
    I was talking about a very specific situation. As long as you're in a hot, humid place, opening the camera door...
