    Good but All Underwater Compacts Have a Long Way to Go, March 31, 2014
    By 
    Tripod (New York, USA) –

    I’m a prosumer photographer that owns 6 cameras, as of today 7 including this one. This is my third underwater (others are Canon D10 and GoPro Hero 3+ Black edition).

    I bought this as a replacement for my bulbous and dated Canon D10. I hate using water housings and would never risk one of my DSLRs in one or shell out for one anyway. I simply like the fact that I can take a waterproof camera in my swimsuit pocket around all day on the beach or on dive boats and never worry about it.

    After doing more hours of research online than I care to admit, it came down to the Panasonic Lumix TS-5 and the Nikon AW120. I still had to try out each in a store before choosing, and even then wasn’t sure. All of which underlines not that there’s a great field of worthy choices to choose from, but each UW camera out there as of this writing has so many weaknesses it’s difficult to choose the least bad one.

    Here are the differences I found by briefly trying the Lumix and AW120 in-store:
    - the AW120 has slightly slimmer dimensions, but noticeably less heavy, which appealed to me
    - the Lumix has a far stronger, more evenly-lighting flash (or maybe it was automatically choosing slow-sync, but it doesn’t matter, it looked great); I don’t plan to take too many land night shots, but I’ve seen that underwater flash does come out better on Lumix
    - the Lumix appears to have more “features”, but they’re basically useless: e.g. timelapse (but the shortest interval is a pointless 10 seconds, should be a half-second), “manual mode” (can only change either aperture from wide open to fully stopped down, or shutter speed from fast to 4 seconds)
    - the Lumix has a terrible live view when you pan (even slowly), the display stutters to catch up; I only ever see this on the cheapest of compacts; very visually annoying as you can’t see what you’re about to shoot and a dealkiller for me
    - the ergonomics of the Nikon are better to me; it feels more natural in my hand and the buttons feel better also
    - AW120 lacks the common “Display” button though; that’s annoying
    - video record is on the back on the AW120, but on the top on the Lumix; my preference is on the back, where I’ll never ever confuse it for the shutter release button
    - reviews say the Lumix user interface is better but I found the Nikon to be more intuitive

    Other reasons I bought the Nikon, even though the Lumix has definitely better dynamic range (from the pics I’ve seen online):
    - the Nikon has f/2.8 max aperture while the Lumix has a slower f/3.3, and good light is hard to come by underwater
    - the Nikon is also wider at the wide end, and I’ve never seen water damage complaints for the Nikons vs lots of complaints for the Lumix (and terrible customer support from Panasonic).
    - the Lumix has better video quality, but it can only do 1080p in AVCHD format! Lame, since it’s not Mac-friendly; I could deal with the more-painful-than-usual transcoding process of AVCHD but why do I want to transcode (and degrade) in the first place just to view on my computer? Super lame.
    - the Lumix has proprietary connectors, not micro-USB like everyone else. So if I lose it among my 30-something connectors, I’m in trouble. Yes, this is what Panasonic thinks is a good idea in 2014.

    Yet, you always learn more when you actually take a camera home. Here are my first impressions:

    - First thing I notice is the strap. There’s no true water strap. The manual describes the strap that comes with it as being for land use only, but it’s really ridiculous, the kind that’s so big you’re probably supposed to wear it around your neck – who wears a compact around their neck?? The Lumix strap is more normal, but it still doesn’t have a way to cinch around your wrist. It seems like all the manufacturers want you to buy a separate floaty strap, although I could care less if the camera floats just as long as it’s cinched around my wrist. I’ll just have to borrow the strap off my D10. For the record, camera manufacturers, here is a REAL water strap (notice the cinch), and they should always be included: [...]
    - Second, the battery cannot be charged by removing it, putting in a simple charger, and plugging into the wall. It has to stay in the camera, with the battery door OPEN so the micro-USB can connect to the inside of the camera. This sounds good on an engineer’s paper, but in the real world it’s a flaw. Why? Because as the battery door lays open over an hour or so to charge, it gathers lint, dust, whatever from the surfaces it touches and the air. Anyone who understands water sealing knows it takes only a tiny hair to break the seal underwater – and sure enough, upon inspection after charging, I had two small fibers right on the rubber seal gasket. Sure I could brush them off with the included tiny brush (which I’m sure I’ll lose), but why should I have to? The only upside…

    Troy D. (Fairbanks, AK United States) –

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

    First off, this is an upgrade to the fairly popular AW-110, and there’s a ton of YouTube videos that list the features and show comparisons to other cameras. I suspect that Nikon wanted to compete with the Olympus TG-2 with this model, which has similar features. The biggest upgrade here is the 24 mm wide-angle lens and faster maximum aperture of 2.8. The Olympus still has an F2 lens. There is of course a GPS, and Wi-Fi. I don’t much use my camera as a compass, so this really wasn’t a big deal for me. I can see where the Wi-Fi could come in useful for remotely controlling the camera. Nikon has also added a number of new video formats. Admittedly at highest resolution you’re going to generate some humongous file sizes. Even a short video can run 500 to 600 megs. I suspect most people would be happy with the 720 mode.

    I would not get too wrapped up in megapixel rating as the sensor sizes are generally very small in point and shoot cameras. More megapixels does not necessarily equate to better images. In fact, it usually means more noise. I’m not sure how this camera stacks up against other point-and-shoot cameras in its class as most of my other gear is pro equipment. To me, I see a fair amount of noise even at ISO 400, but again I think this is pretty common for this price level camera.

    There’s a number of things that do bother me about this camera. One is the zoom. I don’t know if I have a defective camera, but the zoom is very jerky, and not smooth at all. Occasionally (Frequently) it just zooms all the way out or all the way in instead of settling at an intermediate step. I’m going to contact Nikon about this as again, I may have a defective camera. I have been unable to take any professional looking, smooth videos.

    The focus is fairly fast. I will have to play a little bit with post production with the images, but the camera needs lots of light for best results. I really would like to see an even faster lens. As to apertures, there is basically two. I believe it’s 2.8 and 4.2. (Fireworks mode does stop the camera down more, but also changes the white balance). There is no way(mode)to stop the lens down further for greater depth of field or any kind of creative effects. The cameras is capable of slower shutter speeds, but you would have to put some neutral density filters in front of the lens if you want to access them for creative effects. I believe the Olympus has an advantage here.

    My understanding was that the older 110 model came with a filter adapter to allow you to use 40.5 mm filters, but this new does not include one. I’m not sure if they are available as an accessory or not. There are quite a few “Scene modes” and then an easy auto if you really don’t want to think about anything. Namely the camera will do its best, based on its programming, to get you a good picture. The auto mode (different than easy auto mode and scene mode) gives you much greater control, and you do have the option at least of turning the flash on and off, using fill-in flash, or slow sync, redeye reduction, timer, macro mode, etc. each scene mode add some kind of attribute. The party/event mode for example adds a redeye reduction, the close-up mode puts the camera into macro mode, the sports mode uses a high shutter speed, the fireworks mode turns off the auto white light balance, and puts the camera into a different color temperature and stops the lens down more and decreases shutter speed, the list goes on. The more you know about photography, the less you would be likely to use these modes, but I’m sure many people will appreciate them.

    If you’re interested in more of the auto features I think these are very similar to the older model, and you can read about them in other reviews. I actually wish there was more manual control, but not very common with point-and-shoot style cameras. All the buttons are very small and pretty tough to read. I think you may be able to press the shutter release with a pair of gloves on, but other than that you would have to remove gloves to operate. Here again I think the Olympus has an edge.

    I was able to see the screen in sunlight, but it does tend to wash out. You can see well enough to compose your shot. I believe Nikon also attempted to improve the image stabilization as I see there is a “hybird” mode now. I really can’t comment on how well it works over previous models, but my handheld videos look quite good.

    Color accuracy looks quite good, and I suspect resolution is decent for this class of camera. Again, don’t be fooled by the 16 megapixel rating. My eight-year-Canon D-20 takes much better pictures at eight megapixel with less noise. Of course, this started out as a $1500 camera, so not exactly an apples to apples comparison.

    I would say for the price this camera has a lot of outstanding features. It’s small, lightweight, has some pretty nice video with plenty of options, and image…
