    Use camera weekly at the lake to take pics. Takes great pictures. Also use at the beach. Do a good rinse of it each time I take in bodies of water. Get a camera life jacket and don’t have to worry about it. Get it!

    Instruction are fair easy to use and support videos are easy to understand. I’m still unsure how it will work for caving photos, because I know very litter of aperture and exposure, but thanks to TG-5, I’m learning.
