A great camera for Outdoor Yoga
I love this camera so much that following a kayak incident in which it (and 100's of photos) were lost at the bottom of a local river, I didn't hesitate to replace it. The size, functionality and ease of use make this a great camera for what I do. I use it to take professional quality photos while guiding Paddle and Beach Yoga practices. I am able to easily adjust the settings and frame shots quickly which I later edit and send out to those who have joined the practice. The only drawback is that the lens cover tends to fall off. I have tried both the clip-in lens cover and the one that slides on. I wish there was one that had a attachment to hold it to the camera so the risk of loss was decreased and I could keep the lens protected when not shooting photos. I also wish the zoom toggle was flat instead of sticking out the back of the camera. I have outfitted this camera with additional lenses, a protective cover on the back screen and a floatie. This one is going to stick with me for a while. . .I hope ;D.

Great for Beach and Travel
Love this camera! I bought it specifically to take on our beach vacation. I did a lot of research and this camera kept coming up as number one. We just got back from our vacation and used this camera every day. It takes great, quality photos and videos, even underwater. And I like that it's "everything proof". Didn't have to worry about water, sand, or it getting knocked around too much. It's also small enough to take with you when you're out and about...much easier than taking my big DSLR. The camera has every feature you could want. The only accessories I got with it for now is a floating strap for in the water, and an extra battery. But I'll be getting some lenses for this soon. Great camera! Can't go wrong on this one.

Good rugged compact
Rugged camera that can serve as backup for a working professional. I've used the TG-5 for remote location work in poor conditions. It's comforting to know that I don't have to baby the camera. In general, this is a well built camera that produces good images. However, be careful of flare- you can't expect much from a fixed lens with no hood.

Awesome Camera
This camera is amazing! I did a lot of research on a camera that would be a great entry level underwater camera as I just started scuba diving and this has lived up to all of my expectations. So many different settings that take practice to get used to, but it's so worth it in the end. Great product, I expect to have this for years to come!

What a step up
So I have been using action cameras for about 8 years. Super easy to use just point the camera towards what you are trying to do and you are good to go, but the quality was never great and the lack of a view finder or screen to see what I was filming started to get in the way with what I wanted to do. So enter my first non action camera every the TG5, Holy wow, being able to see what you are shooting, being able to work with framing and even focus makes it like a whole different hobby. I have used the TG5 now in a handful of shore dives and 2 boat dives. The underwater housing is fantastic and I think easier to use then just the camera above water. Speaking of above water, I have had the most fun with the macro mode, I find myself carrying the camera with me all over just so I can get those wonderful macro shots of anything I see with an neat texture.
