Shockproof, Waterproof, Freezeproof and Dustproof Protections

The DMC-TS2 is shockproof, waterproof, dustproof and newly added freezeproof in design with the capability to record high-definition movie in AVCHD Lite. Featuring a 28mm wide-angle lens, 4.6x optical zoom and iA (Intelligent Auto) Mode, this versatile camera lets you capture your moments no matter what the intended shooting terrain is. Swim along with tropical fish and capture shots of beautiful coral reefs, or take recordings of your friends around a camp fire. The DMC-TS2 is an extremely versatile camera that you can take with you wherever the action calls.

Shockproof

The DMC-TS2 is dropproof from a height up to 6.6ft in accordance with the "MIL-STD 810F Method 516.5-Shock" test standard. It lets you shoot actively while moving around with the camera in one hand.

Waterproof

With waterproof performance to a depth of 33ft equivalent to the "IEC60529 IPX8" standard, the DMC-TZ2 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.

Freezeproof

With freezeproof to -10 degrees C/14 degrees F, the DMC-TS2 supports shooting while skiing, snowboarding or skating.

Dustproof

The DMC-TS2 is dustproof equivalent to the IEC60529 IP6X standard. While hiking or playing sports, fine dust particles can enter through gaps in the camera body and cause malfunction. The DMC-TS2 can be used in these activities without problems.

HD Movie in AVCHD Lite and LED Light

In addition to Motion JPEG images, the DMC-TS2 can record high-definition motions images in AVCHD Lite. It features almost double the recording time in HD quality compared with the conventional Motion JPEG format.

Intelligent Resolution Technology

The image quality is greatly enhanced thanks to the new image processing technology Intelligent Resolution*1, incorporated in the Venus Engine HD II for the DMC-TS2. By detecting the signals whether they are at edges of the subject, they compose detailed texture or just a soft gradation first and give appropriate enhancement to the edges and textured areas respectively. Unlike the uniform enhancement of sharpness, the innovative Intelligent Resolution precisely performs optimum signal processing to give a whole image outstandingly natural clearness with fine details. As a result, images are naturally clear and crisp in movie recording as well as photo recording.

LED Light

The DMC-TS2 features an LED light that records beautiful motion images even in dusky underwater environments or at a nighttime camp. A convenient auto function also automatically turns on the LED when the ambient light becomes dim.

POWER O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) Shake Detection

Just about everyone has had the experience of taking a photo at night and hoping to capture all the memories and beauty, only to be disappointed at the poor result. The POWER O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer)* nearly doubles the hand-shake correction power of conventional MEGA O.I.S. You get bright photos without blurring even from handheld shooting at slow shutter speeds.

Panasonic's accumulated optical technologies, the MEGA O.I.S. has been incorporated into LUMIX from the early stage of digital camera development. This helped show all digital camera users the absolute need for hand-shake compensation, and led to its prevalence throughout the industry. And now, Panasonic has worked on the low-frequency vibration hand-shake component, which is physically generated when pressing the shutter button or when shooting at night with a slow shutter speed.

*The POWER O.I.S. is automatically turned on in the iA Mode and can be turned on or off in the Normal Picture Mode or some Scene Modes.

4 out of 5 stars   Performed as I thought
By Marsha the Photo Bum (Tallahassee, FL) August 01, 2010
Review submitted for Panasonic DMC-TS2Y LUMIX 14.1MP Waterproof Shockproof Freezeproof Digital Camera (Yellow) (PNDMCTS2Y)
Verified Purchaser
Pros:
Cons:
Other Comments: Purchased camera for a trip to the Virgin Islands. I was really nervous that it would leak. The camera did great. Of course I did follow the directions. At times it was hard to see what you were taking a picture of. It took some practice taking pictures underwater. I think it was worth the purchase and I did get some good pictures.

4 out of 5 stars   Lumix DMC-TS2 noteworthy for Video
By Kayaking 4 Fun (Fallbrook, CA) July 09, 2010
Review submitted for Panasonic DMC-TS2Y LUMIX 14.1MP Waterproof Shockproof Freezeproof Digital Camera (Yellow) (PNDMCTS2Y)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Good Image Stabilization, Short Lag Time
Cons:
Other Comments: My experience with the TS2 has been mainly positive. It provides superb video for a camera in this class. Video Image Stabilization is very effective even as the camera is zoomed. One drawback that is noted in both still and video is that reflections from the sun off the water or off a shiny surface cause the camera to display a vertical line across the entire image. This is probably due to it's folded optics lens design, and is not a huge problem unless you are trying to capture images of the reflection points on the water surface. The other oddity is a mild popping sound I experience with the audio when the camera shoots underwater video. The audio is clean when shooting video on land. Other reviewers have also complained that water has ruined their camera. I found that various reviewers have complained about this for all compact waterproof cameras, including the Canon D10. It is imperative that you keep the seals clean. Inspect them before you plan to enter the water. I've taken this camera below 8' on five occasions without incident. Overall, the camera shoots high quality still photographs and superb video both on land and underwater. Other reviewers have compared the video quality to what they see in high end digital SLR cameras. As for still photography, colors are accurate and pictures are clear while shooting outdoors in daylight. The camera starts up and focuses very quickly, allowing you to capture the moment. I have not tested it in low light, but I plan to use my SLR for low light shooting anyways. I suspect, like most compact cameras, that low light shooting would result in image noise that would yield less than ideal shots. The flash is small and would probably require your subjects to be no more than 5-8' for better image quality. This is a great "niche" camera for an outdoor enthusiast that needs a tough waterproof camera. As a bonus, you get superb video quality. If you need this type of a camera, it would be hard to find a better choice.

2 out of 5 stars   Good feature but bad image quality
By Broade (Queens, NY) June 27, 2010
Review submitted for Panasonic DMC-TS2Y LUMIX 14.1MP Waterproof Shockproof Freezeproof Digital Camera (Yellow) (PNDMCTS2Y)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Nice Body Color, Short Lag Time
Cons: Poor Image Quality
Other Comments: Everything looks attractive until you shoot a picture with it. Comapared to the Sony P200 which I purchased 5 years ago, the sharpness, color depth and contrast, TS2 has no comparison.

3 out of 5 stars   Somewhat disappointed
By Matthew's Mommie (Miami, Fl) June 09, 2010
Review submitted for Panasonic DMC-TS2Y LUMIX 14.1MP Waterproof Shockproof Freezeproof Digital Camera (Yellow) (PNDMCTS2Y)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Great Zoom, Good Image Stabilization
Cons: Seems Fragile, Poor Image Quality
Other Comments: The picture quality on this camera doesn't compare to that of the regular Lumix that I own. Also, it seems more fragile and delicate then what is advertised by panasonic. After reading the instructions on care you have to give the camera after each use, the precautions you need to take during and after use plus the manner in which the shockproof tests are done, it's not as tough as they make it seem. I was almost scared to use it.
