    The TG-5 is a great "Pocket Camera". It goes with me everywhere, and it is every time ready to take photos. It is not a replacement for my EM10 Mark ll but a replacement in terms of Photography of my iPhone 6Plus. And it is a great company to walk around cos it doesn't eat space in the pocket at all.

    Would I regret about it is that I didn't buy it earlier. Would I buy it again, so far 100%.

    I downloaded this Manual and it is very helpful

    I love that the TG-5 can be used in RC Mode

    I sold my TG-5 of some reason:
    1. no viewfinder, in Thailand almost all year bright sun
    2. no manual control
    3. no tilting LCD

    What was great:
    Focus Stacking in Camera
    Pro Capture Mode
    Underwater capility

    Since I've got the 60mm I like Focus Bracketing with my EM10 MarkII
    Macro and Closeups much easier with the 60mm

    At the end of the day it matters that I know I don't need the TG-5

    Sent from my vivo v9
