Design

Robust

Two Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS30 reviewers who reviewed it thought it was strong and durable. Steves-Digicams.com wrote on expert review site Steve's Digicams “The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS30 is a "rugged" camera designed for campers, hikers, divers, surfers, or anyone who enjoys activities that would normally spell doom for your average point-n-shoot”. Imaging-Resource.com said on expert review site Imaging Resource.com “If you're interested in a rugged, waterproof camera that can take a lot of abuse from the elements”.


Picture Quality

Has an Image Stabilizer

The Lumix DMC-TS30 has an image stabilizer. Most of the other cameras of a comparable age and type to this camera also have an image stabilizer.

We compared this digital camera to all the other cameras with an image stabilizer and we think because of it's better review score, the Nikon L120, and the GE J1455 is also worth considering.
