Introduction

Panasonic's line of rugged compact cameras are some of the most durable on the market, and their new Lumix TS4 is no different. Exposed bolts accent a sturdy metal and hard plastic chassis, for an armored look that copies the TS3 before it. A cursory glance at the two is enough to realize just how similar they are to one another, and for that matter, a detailed examination of the spec sheet will lead to the same conclusion.

Given the only-slight update from the TS3, MSRP has mercifully been left at $399.99. The TS4 will replace the TS3 completely, so–theoretically–Panasonic has improved this spot in their lineup without additional cost to the new customer. That is, unless our test results say otherwise....

Check out our 7-camera waterproof shootout to see how the year's best tough-cams compare.
