check out all my HD Videos of Barleyjuice & The Rogues at the Maryland Renaissance Festival

I used my new Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS1 12 megapixel waterproof/shockproof camera to create these HD videos and uploaded the resulting files without any post-processing work whatsoever. The results are fantastic, and this lightweight but heavy-duty $300 camera did an admirable job performing well beyond expectations. This is the first time i have gotten really excited about a simple point ‘n shoot camera. Historically, when buying a point ‘n shoot to do both photographs and videos, you have to sacrifice performance in either the video or the photographic ability of the camera because they could not do both extremely well. The Lumix DMC-TS1 has changed that, at last!And on top of that, the DMC-TS1 is waterproof! I have not gone swimming with it yet, but that option is there, as well as taking photos underwater while snorkling. What more could you want?
