How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

Like other rugged cameras, the Lumix DMC-TS4 can take pictures just about anywhere, but there's a trade-off in image quality once you get there. Its limited performance in low-light circumstances means you shouldn't expect to get scuba-diving shots, though you should be fine taking it snorkeling or in the pool. On the whole, image quality isn't quite as good as what you'll get from the Olympus Tough TG-820, but the TS4 adds GPS and sells for about the same price as the TG-820. So if you want to make sure you don't forget where you took those underwater pictures, it's a better choice.
