EoinCuinn: I have the TG-2. While RAW is a bonus, there's not much else different between this and the TG-4
This camera is the kids camera. My 2,4 and 6 year old all use it, to various degrees of success. Anyone wanting to hand something with a decent price tag to their kids to (hopefully) not destroy, so far mine has survived, so I reckon the TG-4 would be the same.
What I am disappointed about, is the lack of a Shutter priority. My kids are actually really keen on point our camera at things and taking photos, and if I could program our TG-2, or subsequently the TG-4, to a higher shutter speed, I would get far more usable photos from their camera work.
If I had my time again, I think I would get a similarly priced P&S with better shutter programming, and take the risk on it getting broken. That being said, I can take out TG out in the rain when they are jumping in puddles!

Funnily enough, after doing some research on my new camera, I learnt this trick! Much better, blur free shots now, but of course there's a trade off on noise. However, I will take non blurry shots over noise any day of the week! This camera just became the kids camera most of the time, so I have left it set to auto high, and we're getting much more usable shots.
