Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS20

 

If you're looking for a rugged pocket shooter that you can take anywhere without worry, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS20 is an inexpensive option. Its lens isn't the sharpest, and noise reduction smears away image detail at higher ISOs, but the camera...

Inexpensive for a rugged camera. Short shutter lag. Wide angle lens. Waterproof, shockproof, freezeproof, and dustproof. Good high ISO performance.

Soft lens. Not as rugged as competitors. Video limited to 720p resolution.

Performance and Conclusions The TS20 isn't the speediest rugged camera to come through the PCMag Lab, but it's not a dog either. It can start up and grab a shot in 2 seconds, shoots one frame per second in continuous drive mode, and records a short 0.1...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT20

 

While the FT20 is nothing to write home about, it's a perfectly serviceable tough camera that can easily slide into a pocket.

Slimline design ; Tough and rugged ; Well-priced

Screen has terrible viewing angles ; Even low ISO images are grainy ; Video is only 720p and just OK

While the FT20 is nothing to write home about, it's a perfectly serviceable tough camera that can easily slide into a pocket. As long as making enlargements or big prints isn't on your agenda, it will suit you just fine.

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT20 is an affordable rugged compact camera that would be a perfect fit for the rough and tumble of family life, if it wasn't for its disappointingly poor image quality. It may not offer all the bells and whistles of its...

Panasonic Lumix FT20 Digital Camera Review

 

The Lumix FT20 cannot be faulted for doing what it was designed to, it handles 'though' conditions with its solidly constructed body and will work in conditions other cameras will not and should be applauded for doing so. The image quality is ok the...
