Having bought this camera some months back I can't say it's easy to master,I required a camera I could use in all conditions,something that could take the odd wee drop bash or bang & the tg-320 does that alright.There are a few criticisms though,firstly taking movie footage with your camera will only allow about 10 minutes before completely draining your battery,also the shutter speed is very slow,some two to three seconds between shot,now at this point you most likly saying what's the point in buying it! with a bit of forward planning & reading online reviews I reckon I've found a few good tips for using this camera.
Firstly buy two lithium batteries & a charger,these batteries hold lots more power that the standard battery that comes with the camera,also they're very small & easily carried in a bag,secondly taking photo at the highest setting ie 14 mega pixel takes the camera longer to process it,by changing this to 8 mega pixel it reduces the shutter speed to half the time,also change the shooting sequel to high speed ,again it improve shooting time,don't forget it put the camera on battery saving mode.
Generally this is a good camera I've had to adapt to making the best use of it,but it has some cracking features & takes good photos,just render change your setting,carry extra batteries & it will be grand.
