Do you have an activity packed lifestyle? If you do, the Panasonic LUMIX DMC-TS3 is the perfect camera for you. The DMC-TS3 has been designed specifically to cope with demanding locations and difficult shooting situations.

The Panasonic LUMIX DMC-TS3 will enable you to capture all of your greatest outdoor adventures in stunning detail, thanks to the range of advanced features that it has to offer. This versatile camera is not only waterproof, it is also freeze proof, dustproof and shockproof. Whether you find yourself swimming in a tropical ocean, hiking a trail in the deep woods or hitting the slopes of a snow-covered mountain peak, the DMC-TS3 can go where you go and will perform brilliantly in all conditions.

The durability of the TS3 is outstanding; there is no condition that the camera cannot handle. It will deliver to its full potential no matter what extreme you take it to; it’s your perfect activity partner.

  • newegg Rugged Durability: Waterproof, Shockproof, Dust-Proof and Freeze-Proof With waterproof performance to a depth of 40ft (IPX8 Standard), the DMC-TS3 supports active shooting on a beach, underwater or in a pool. If the camera gets dirty, soil and dust can be washed off by using water. The DMC-TS3 is drop proof from a height up to 6.6ft in accordance with the "MIL-STD 810F Method 516.5-Shock" test standard. It allows you to shoot actively while moving around with the camera in one hand. The DMC-TS3 is dustproof to the "IP6X" standard. The DMC-TS3 construction prevents the fine dust particles that would normally enter through gaps in the camera body while hiking or playing sports. The DMC-TS3 can be used in these activities without problems. With freeze proof to 14 degrees Ferenheit, the DMC-TS3 supports shooting while skiing, snowboarding or ice skating.
  • newegg 28mm Wide-Angel LEICA DC Lens with Folded Optics Technology The DMC-TS3 features a powerful Leica DC Vario-Elmar lens with folded optics technology that helps secure the lens unit for increased durability in rugged conditions, and the lens is reinforced with a supplementary damper that helps absorb impact force. The lens unit itself is comprised of 10 separate elements and an 8-group prism unit, including an ED lens and multiple aspherical lenses and surfaces. Each of these elements has passed Leica’s rigorous standards to ensure superior optical performance to the edges. With the DMC-TS3’s 28mm wide-angle lens it is possible to capture images of large groups of people or panoramic landscapes even at very short distances. The full resolution 4.6x optical zoom lens captures natural expressions from subjects at a distance and can be increased to 6x equivalent using the Intelligent Zoom function. By extending the zoom power to 9.1x at 3-megapixel resolution or less, the Extra Optical Zoom brings subjects even closer with stunning image clarity.
  • newegg Location Information Indicator Because the LUMIX TS series is designed for active outdoor use, the TS3 includes a compass, depth indicator, barometric sensor, altimeter, GPS and advanced measuring equipment, all packed into a sturdy, durable frame. From fishing and camping to surfing and snorkeling to skiing and mountain climbing, the DMC-TS3 is always ready to record impressive still and video images in the field. The GPS function provides real-time location information for each photo, and they can be tagged with place names and coordinate details. Images and location names are automatically stored alphabetically on the camera’s internal drive, helping to organize photos and making specific image recall quick and easy.
  • newegg Venus Engine FHD The Venus Engine FHD gives the DMC-TS3 especially advanced signal processing capabilities. Capture clear, vibrant images even when shooting at a high ISO, thanks to the Venus Engine’s ability to separate chromatic noise from luminance noise and to then apply optimal noise reduction to each. The Venus Engine also provides selective chromatic noise reduction without impacting the border of colors. A smooth link to the new Hi-Speed CCD sensor allows the Venus Engine FHD to process a large number of signals at very high speed. Record 1920x1080 HD video or consecutive shots at 3.7 fps in full 12.1-megapixel resolution or push the limit with 10 fps at 3-megapixel resolution.
  • newegg Full HD Video The DMC-TS3 has full 1920x1080 HD recording capability in AVCHD format. This format features nearly twice the HD recording time when compared to conventional Motion JPEG and offers a host of options that enhance the enjoyment and usability of capturing movies in high definition. The TS3 can record between 50 and 110 minutes in AVCHD mode and approximately 55 to 110 minutes in Motion JPEG. Choose from several different motion picture recording modes including; Portrait, Soft Skin, Transform, Self-Portrait, Scenery, Food, Party, Candle Light, Low Light, Sunset, Aerial, Film Grain, Pinhole, High Sensitivity or High Dynamic (Art, Black and White, Standard).
  • newegg 3D Photo Mode The newly added 3D Photo Mode, fixed to 2-megapixel 16:9, captures amazing 3D images with less distortion and fewer visible image links. 3D images are pieced together using 20 panning shots. The camera then selects the best two images, one for the viewer’s right eye and one for the left. The dual image is synthesized to create a 3D composite that can be printed, or viewed on a Panasonic VIERA 3D HDTV or any MPO-compatible device, including televisions and digital photo frames.
