The market for digital cameras is extensive and anybody searching for one could be at a loss as to what choice to make. The advantage that the Lumix TS3 has is that it can be used under water at up to forty feet so is one of a few totally waterproof cameras.
Further advantages of this impressive camera are that it is also shock proof and if dropped from a height of no more than six and a half feet it will incur no damage at all. As far as water proof cameras go, this is pretty impressive, but, of course, if used constantly it will begin to show signs of wear and tear and durability while searching beneath the waves it is a must for any diver.
What This Waterproof Camera Means For You
Further advantages of this camera are that its body is designed in such a way that it is dust proof so no abrasive particles can access the inner workings and cause untold damage. As it is still a highly sensitive piece of equipment, as far as waterproof cameras are concerned, so constant and excessive abuse will take its toll but cared for properly it will serve its user well.
As far as durability is concerned, the Lumix TS3 is built to withstand freezing temperatures as low as 14 degrees Fahrenheit. So, whether you are a diver, skier or just a walker, this is the camera for you. To enable a user to locate exactly where a particular picture is taken, there is a GPS function. This is not a feature
that can be rushed as it takes some time to initiate but in wide open spaces it is a great asset and along with the barometer, altimeter and compass. There are not many water proof cameras that have this type of facility
Quality Pictures Every Time
For those who rate picture quality as their prime concern, then this camera remains impressive. With a LEICA DC28mm wide angle lens the picture quality is very good and 1920 x 1080 AVCHD video is equally impressive. However, the down side is that the flash is controlled individually and this can cause problems in situations where
the light is not too good, a common issue with waterproof cameras. It is advisable to locate the right setting manually when taking advantage of the Active Outdoor scene mode or the IAuto mode for the best results. While taking this into account due to the high speed CCD sensor and Venus Engine FHD, the fast action pictures that can be taken with this camera are of a very high standard and way in front of its many competitors in the water proof digital camera market.
Any all action individual that is searching for a hand held camera that will suit their every need will need to look no
further than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS3. What more can a person ask from a dust proof, freeze proof, shock
proof under water camera than what this impressive piece of equipment can give. Although when taking pictures
indoors, certain things need to be taken into account but for all lovers of the outdoor environment this is definitely a
must have camera.
