Lumix DMC-TS2: a Tough, Versatile Pocket Shooter
2 July 2010
Excerpt: Panasonic’s Lumix DMC-TS2 is fairly standard tough camera fare. It is freeze-proof down to 14° F, dust-proof, and shock-proof to 10 feet. It is waterproof to 33 feet, which is good enough for some light recreational diving or snorkeling. The real benefits come from faster auto-focus and SDXC card compatibility. SDXC cards have greater capacity, which you will need if you plan to push the 14-megapixel sensor to its limit.
Excerpt: When it comes to all weather cameras there aren’t too many to choose from but there are some pretty good and swanky models. For instance the recently reviewed Olympus Tough-3000 proved to be a versatile little camera and the Panasonic DMC-FT2 promises to be even better.
Summary: Are you a well-travelled adventurer likely to find yourself in need of a camera whilst wading through a marsh, scaling a sheer rock face or trudging through frozen tundra? Or just a cack-handed fool liable to dropping your gadgets on the nearest hard surface? Well, the Panasonic FT2 is billed as the camera for you. Bright young thing Panasonic has clad this 14MP point-and-shoot in a suit of brightly coloured plastic armour (you get the choice of orange, blue or yellow).
Excerpt: Time waits for no man, especially in the world of digital cameras, and so it is that the DMC-FT2 arrives on the Photography Blog test bench barely a few weeks after its predecessor, the DMC-FT1. As the two cameras are so similar, a lot of the comments that we made about the FT1 will be repeated here.
