Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS4 Digital Camera Review$399.99
A dedicated mode button is located directly above the directional pad. This opens up a simple menu covering the auto modes, some special modes for certain shooting scenarios (action, portrait, etc.), as well as the new full manual mode.
One of the few totally new additions to the TS4 is a full manual shooting mode. Control over both shutter and aperture are unlocked, though aperture may only be set to one of two positions. The only thing absent is manual focus, but we rarely miss this feature on fixed-lens cameras.
21 total shooting resolutions are available in varying levels of detail. Five for each of the available aspect ratios (4:3, 3:2, 16:9, and 1:1), plus an extra one for 4:3. Two levels of JPEG compression quality are available, but lossless RAW encoding is not supported.
