au1947: hi ft4 is very much better camera, because of its uses CCD instead of CMOS
Client Videos: I need the GoPro fisheye looking like i need a Panasonic DMC-TS4 jammed in my ass !
wideeyevideo: I don't think the GoPro has more clarity really, just more contrast. You could always increase contrast while editing if more is wanted. IMHO
jean freitas: very good
spidaminida: I read that, stupidly, the GoPro has horrible focus issues if you use it underwater! That's what stopped me from buying it...
1650million: Very useful, thank you
shuwukong: i see the gopro has got sharper images
v838monocetrotis: Stupid compare, Lumix its a camera no video camera. You should take both underwater, take few photos and then make another compare, then will see with is better :)
Allan Zepeda: just color correct the ts4 and its a winner, its a CCD not a CMOS like the Gopro
rmoore07: @mariusphoto Cool--thank for the info regarding the audio.
Marius Tatu: Lumix camera has a better audio (plus an extra setting - "Wind Cut), in GoPro the sound is muffled when is in the waterproof case but outside water you have the option to plug in an external microphone.
rmoore07: Thanks for the great comparison video. Which camera would you say has better audio?
Marius Tatu: In GoPro Hero 2 you can choose one of 3 fields of view
170º Wide FOV (Including 1080p) or
127º Medium FOV (In 1080p) or
90º Narrow FOV
Jim Socks: thanks for the comparison bro. the gopro looks much sharper than the lumix. is the gopro always in fisheye mode tho?
Marius Tatu: You shouldn't feel terrible, FT4 is a good camera, a still camera in the first instance, GoPro is a video camera in it's first instance. Don't forget in the Lumix you have the option to change more settings (like White Balance for example).
tell2k: Well I can't Haha so what one wins?
Marius Tatu: The video is available for mobile, I can see it on my android phone.
tell2k: I can't see your video from my phone but what one takes it?
