Great snorkelling and hiking camera
Excellent camera for snorkelling and hiking - I also have a more serious mirrorless camera, but many of my favorite shots are from my tg-4 because it can go places that would destroy other cameras. Likes: - microscope, HDR, live composite, and panorama modes are great - the option to save RAW files is nice for underwater and night, and a feature which isn't available on any other line of waterproof compacts - jpg output is good, and the underwater preset does well with colors and exposure for near surface underwater shots - I find several accessories quite useful (especially the fisheye converter for underwater) - this expandability is rare among point and shoots Dislikes - There is a timelapse movie mode, but it is hindered by being limited to 99 frames. A timelapse mode with more frames, and that captured individual photos so I could edit them to my liking, would be more useful. - The wifi is a neat feature to transfer photos to a phone, but in practice is a bit clunky and time consuming to set up. - The lens is rather exposed - and this is my hiking camera, it gets crammed into my pack and dropped on rocks a lot!. I protect my lens using the CLA-T01 lens adapter, but it would be nice if the included lens ring protruded a bit more to protect the lens from scratches

The one to own........
I've had this camera for over a year now.....and although I own a Leica "C" and Sony RX100m5......the TG-4 is my go anywhere camera. It does most everything well including taking Macro's.

Excellent quality photos on land and in the water!
I recently purchased the TG-4 camera primarily for underwater use. Took great underwater photos on my recent vacation snorkeling in Kauai. It also took great land photos! Easy to use settings, panorama mode was a breeze to use, the camera indicates where to align and it automatically snapped the second scene as it aligned while scanning the view. The macro mode is excellent - I took some great close-ups of some small mountain flowers and the results were incredible!
