Re: Anyone got TG-2? Please share experience

Thanks everyone. This is the waterproof camera I would buy since 2009 Panasonic TS1 12MP

and 2010 Sony TX5 10 MP

They are both fine camera but fast forward to 2013 and this year Panasonic TS is 16MP and Sony TX is 18 MP

If one understand diffraction, this crazy amount of megapixel combine with slow lens F3.3/3.5 take them out of consideration

I sit out TG1 last year and after waitng 1 year I go the A mode (please remind me if there are other gain)

In my mind this is the best waterproof camera to buy now, 2 reasons

1. 12 MP quite sad that this is rare this day.

those crazy megapixel now destroy point and shoot. Well consider the new NEX-3N size and $500 price, point and shoot should die anyway. That's not a problem to me

But waterproof small sensor camera should not die.

by the way even those super zoom small sensor is useless to me. I have NEX-5N and 16X zoom Sony HX9V. With 3x real zoom on 5N and than digital zoom,I have find out that the 16X digital zoom 5N image is at least as good as HX9V and maybe even better

So the only real use of small sensor is now waterproof camera

2. F2 lens, the benefit need not explain

Thanks Olympus especially for still making a 12MP camera
