Comments:

Our family of six needed a really tough compact camera. It seems like we have been buying a new one each and every year because of accidents - usually just dropping most cameras(even from our short 2 year old) the lens cover mechanism would fail due to the drop. After some research, we thought this would be a good bet. We live in norhern Minnesota and enjoy the great outdoors in all seasons, have kids active in sports, and all around are tough on our stuff. Hope this camera lives up to what we dish out. Only have printed a few pictures so far and they aren't as sharp as I had hoped but I haven't played with it enough to know whether it is operator related or not?

Was a gift for my daughter before a trip Europe as it will take the abuse of travel. Waterproof means it can be hosed off if you drop it in the mud

Comments:

I really like this camera and also the TS3 which I have also. These are the main differences between TS3 and TS4: Full manual mode at TS4 Time Lapse mode at TS4 Advanced sofware at TS4 more camera modes ... The external size is the same and also the battery is the same. I recommend this camera for those who regularly do activities, sports, travels and things when the shockproof and waterproof ability can be needed.
