Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS2

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS2 is a 14.1 megapixel digital camera that features High Definition video recording capability, in the AVCHD Lite format; is designed in a waterproof form factor up to 10 feet (10m) in depth, shockproof to 6.6 feet (2m), freezeproof to 14° F (-10° C) and dustproof. The LUMIX TS2 features compact airtight body that protected against water immersion, dust and sand. This is attributed to its rubber padding and reinforced glass and carbon inside the camera and a cover panel for the LCD thickened by 1.3x to withstand increased pressure underwater. Encased with shock-resistant material, the digital camera has folded optics design that protects its lens when dropped during operation. It also features a supplementary damper to absorb the force from shock impact, and come with an optional silicon jacket that helps protect its exterior from scratches.

Features

The Panasonic LUMIX TS2 is a digital camera that features Sonic Speed AF (Auto Focus), which enables a fast response time, and a shutter release time lag as short as approximately 0.005 second that allows users to capture sudden, spur-of-the-moment photo opportunities. It also has Sonic Speed AF (Auto Focus) that lets users lock on the subject in approximately 0.24 second (wide-end) / 0.28 second (tele-end) and the short startup time of approximately 1.1 second. The LUMIX TS2 features a 28mm wide-angle LEICA DC VARIO ELMAR lens that extends to a 4.6x optical zoom, a 2.7-inch, 230,000-dot Intelligent LCD with a wide-viewing angle with automatic brightness control that adjust the brightness of the display according to ambient lighting conditions; built-in LED light for shooting in dark situations, such as underwater; HD video recording in Motion JPEG and AVCHD Lite format; Dolby Digital Stereo Creator for high quality audio; Venus Engine HD that optimizes any degradation created during the digital zoom process or in high-sensitivity shooting; Intelligent Zoom feature which extends the camera’s zoom ratio by approximately 1.3x while maintaining the picture quality; manual control features which allows for adjustments in shutter speed, aperture and exposure; iA (Intelligent Auto) mode which incorporates POWER O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) and doubles the repression power; Face Recognition for up to 15 faces; Intelligent Scene Selector which automatically selects whichever of 6 Scene Modes – Macro, Portrait, Scenery, Night Portrait, Night Scenery and Sunset; AF Tracking, Intelligent ISO Control and Intelligent Exposure; iA in video mode that automatically switches between Normal, Portrait, Macro, Scenery, and Low Light modes according to the shooting environment; Happy Mode which optimizes color, saturation and brightness to make both photo and video more vivid and true to the color the users remember when they took it; High Dynamic that lets users capture a scene with moderate exposure, even though the scene contains both bright and dark area together. The user can select one of three options, Standard, Art, or B/W, depending on the desired effect and personal taste to make the photo look natural to artistic; and Video Divide which lets users divide video into two sections to shorten or delete the unwanted clips directly on the camera. A still image from a video can also be grabbed and saved within the menus on the camera.

  • The Lumix DMC-TS2 is a real scam. I

    The Lumix DMC-TS2 is a real scam. It is not even waterproof at 3 meters if it remains a bit of time in water. Additionally Panasonic has a warranty system that is not international. Having bought this camera at the airport in Seoul, they require that I return the camera at the airport and not to the Panasonic shop next door to me.

  • Cet appareil est une véritable arnaque.

    Cet appareil est une véritable arnaque. Il n'est pas étanche même à 3 mètres pour peu que l'on reste un peu de temps dans l'eau. De plus Panasonic a un système de garantie qui n'est pas international. Ayant acheté cet appareil en Duty free à l'aéroport de Séoul, ils exigent que le rapporte en mains propres à cet aéroport et non pas au magasin Panasonic à coté de chez moi.

  • Quality?

    I have an Olympus SW1030 and have taken some superb underwater pictures and videos with it. Less than 15 months later it will only do playback and will not take pictures or videos. I've seen many other complaints regarding this very same problem. Is this common to most underwater or tough type cameras or simply an Olympus problem? I want an underwater camera, don't feel that I should have to pay Olympus to pay for their faulty camera and am very "gun-shy" about other underwater cameras. I do like the Lumix cameras, however, and wonder if this one might be a better bet?
