The WiFi-enabled LUMIX TS5 compact adventure camera is rugged and waterproof, delivering go-anywhere flexibility with state-of-the-art imaging performance. Unwire your creativity with WiFi technology that allows you to share your pictures instantly from your smartphone. The LUMIX TS5 is the ultimate tough camera, so you can take the best shot possible without worrying holding anything back. Waterproof to 43 feet, shockproof from 6.5 feet, freezeproof from 14 degrees Fahrenheit, and pressure resistant to 220 lbs, the LUMIX TS5 really is the battle-tank of the compact camera market.


Extremely easy to connect, control and share with advanced WiFi

The advanced WiFi functions of the LUMIX TS5 give you the ability to control, save and share your images easily.


One Touch Connection
Get connected with NFC (Near Field Communication) and you can easily change your smartphone or tablet into a remote control for your LUMIX camera - simply touch the camera and the smartphone or tablet together.

Ultimate control and share with the Panasonic Image App
The power of controlling and sharing is in your hands with the free Panasonic Image App for iOS and Android smartphones and tablets. With this app, you can use your smartphone or tablet to control the camera for remote shooting, remote video recording and remote view. You can also instantly upload and share your images on an SNS (Social Networking Service).

Easily transfer images from your camera to your own or your friends' devices
You can set up your camera to instantly transfer the photos you shoot to your device. Just start shooting and the camera will do the rest for you. If you want to share pictures with your friend, you only need to touch your camera to your friend's smartphone or tablet and an image will be transferred (In 1-thumbnail playback mode).
Wireless TV playback
Sharing your pictures on your large screen TV has never been easier with the WiFi Direct function. You can display images on a TV that supports the Digital Media Renderer (DMR) function of the DLNA standard (Digital Living Network Alliance) like the Panasonic VIERA HDTV. Combine your pictures taken with the 3D Photo Mode and the 3D VIERA TV and your photos come to life in a way you never thought imaginable.


Instant Works-of-Art with Built-In Creative Effects


Creative Control/Creative Retouch
Panasonic is ready to take the ordinary and make it extraordinary by fueling your creativity with the Creative Control feature (in the recording mode) and the Creative Retouch feature (in the playback mode). The Creative Control feature for video matches the colors to your subject and surroundings. In Miniature Effect Mode, the video you record is played back 10 times faster making it more comical and fun to watch (Sound will not be recorded with Miniature Effect in Creative Control Mode and approximately 1/10 of the time period is recorded.).
Advanced Underwater Mode
The Red Color Reproduction of Advanced Underwater Mode compensates for the reds that are easily lost in underwater photography. This creates underwater pictures that look more natural. Other modes that deliver incredible results are Sports, Snow, and Beach & Snorkeling. They can all be selected from the menu quickly and easily.

Creative Panorama
Panasonic has developed the industry's first Creative Panorama functions. Discover 12 filter effects that will take your panorama images to the next level with creative and dramatic results.

Manual Exposure
For those looking to take on more creative control, the DMC-TS5 has easy-to-use manual controls. You can set the aperture to control the depth of field, and adjust the shutter speed to freeze moving subjects or create a motion blur that exaggerates the feeling of movement.

iA (Intelligent Auto) Mode
In the iA (Intelligent Auto) Mode, the camera does all the work, leaving you free to compose your shot and capture the moment. Simply aim, press, and shoot. The detection and correction functions go to work to give you beautiful photos and videos (The applicable iA Mode functions vary with photos and videos).


Capture Stills or Full HD Video In and Out of the Water

Capture all the action while recording full HD 1,920 x 1,080 videos in AVCHD Progressive (MPEG-4 / H.264) format. Featuring 60p (NTSC) full HD recording capability, subjects with fast motion or fine details will be reproduced clearly. The powerful 4.6x optical zoom is available in video recording to capture subjects in the distance and bring you closer to the action.


Progressive Scanning
All image data is reproduced in a single, perfect picture.

Stereo Microphone

Panasonic has incorporated a stereo zoom microphone resulting in videos with the high-quality stereo sound of Dolby Digital, delivering realistic sound to your videos. Mechanical noise caused by the camera's zooming operation is suppressed to improve the clarity, and the Auto Wind Cut function blocks out most noise from background wind making the voices you are recording stand out.

Tough Travel Companion

The DMC-TS5 features pressure resistance of 100 kgf thanks to the reinforced rib structure of its internal design. Safely stow it in your pocket or backpack with confidence. With waterproof performance to a depth of 43ft, equivalent to the "IPX8" standard, the DMC-TS5 delivers active shooting on the beach, underwater or in a pool. The DMC-TS5 is shockproof from a height of 6.6ft in accordance with the "MIL-STD 810F Method 516.5-Shock" test standard. It is also dustproof, equivalent to the "IP6X" standard. Looking to shoot in the cold? The DMC-TS5 is freezeproof to 14 degrees Fahrenheit. An anti-fog glass on the lens cover prevents it from fogging up when going from one temperature to the next.


Also a Smart Travel companion

The GPS (Global Positioning System) in the DMC-TS5 complies with GLONASS (Global Navigation Satellite System), taking advantage of its increased number of satellites, giving you better accuracy. This camera also adopts a compass, an altimeter and even a barometer. The LUMIX's GPS shows place name and landmark information giving real-time information on your location when taking photos. The photos and videos with the location names are automatically sorted in a virtual folder alphabetically in the camera allowing you to quickly find them. The DMC-TS5 also records GPS logging allowing memorizing travel distances which can be displayed on the Google Earth application.


State-Of-The-Art Features And Technologies

The DMC-TS5 features a high-quality LEICA DC lens with 4.6x optical zoom from 28mm wide-angle to 128mm telephoto (35mm camera equivalent: 28-128mm). The folded optics of the shaft guide method help ensure the toughness of the lens unit. Passing Leica's renowned stringent standards, this lens delivers exceptional optical performance edge to edge. If the 4.6x optical zoom is not long enough for your photographic journey, the DMC-TS5 offers 9.3x Intelligent Zoom. Light Speed AF helps catch even the most fleeting photo opportunities. You can quickly focus on moving subjects such as athletes, animals or your active kids.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat camera

Pros: Waterproof, rugged, GREAT pictures, battery life, many picture options, compact, zoom, proprietary batteries are inexpensive.

Cons: WiFi is clumsy and not easy. Annoying "did you check the water seal" message every time you power up after opening the battery/memory card door.

Other Thoughts: Bought this for a snorkeling trip in the Caribbean and it was worth it. Takes great pics underwater. The pre-program features do a great job correcting when there is high contrast and sunset. No worries about sand getting in, dropping the camera, or dropping it in the snow. This handled them all.

The wifi feature is practically useless. It is difficult to get a connection and does not enable batch-uploading to a tablet. It also overrides the internet connection on the tablet, so you cannot directly upload from camera to tablet to internet. Only good wifi feature was the remote control, but how many times will you use that.

4 out of 5 eggsPanasonic LUMIX DMC-TS5 16.1 MP 3.0" 460K WiFi Enabled Lifestyle Tough Camera

Pros: Tough
Vertical Panorama
Control with Android Device
High Dynamic Mode, including in Panorama
Long Exposure

Cons: Price

Other Thoughts: I have owned 5 Panasonic cameras including the TS2 and TS3. The only problem I had was the HDMI socket on the TS3 which was repaired under warranty. It did take a while to get it back. Both the TS2 and TS3 survived a 12 day raft trip through the Grand Canyon while many of the other cameras failed.

I bought the TS5 the week they came out to take sailing and snorkeling in the Caribbean and I have taken it on a raft trip of the Salmon River. I found the vertical panorama a great plus for photographing waterfalls on Dominica. You can play the panoramas back as video using the camera.

You can use an Android device as a remote viewfinder and shutter control whether to take a shot with you in the group or to set up next to a bird feeder and trigger when you have a good shot.

You can take long exposures with this camera if you want a night scene with stars and moonlight.

Overall image quality may not be on par with cameras using larger lenses, but they look great on my 60" TV.
