The black Lumix DMC-TS25 Digital Camera from Panasonic is a compact "tough" camera that can shoot both photos and HD video on land and underwater. A 16.1MP CCD sensor provides clear, well-defined images even in low light and a Lumix DC Vario lens offers focal lengths from wide-angle to telephoto at 25-100mm in 35mm format. An 8x Intelligent Zoom function offers even longer digital zoom reach when needed. 23-area Autofocus and Quick AF combine to provide fast and accurate autofocus
HD 720p video is available with a dedicated button one-touch button. Shooting a still photo while shooting video is supported and MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilization) compensates for camera shake in photo and video, offering clear images in low light or when shooting telephoto. Intelligent Auto (iA) Mode is available for point and shoot capability with all assistive features engaged and Scene Mode provides predefined settings to shoot certain types of scenes (Sunset, Starry Sky, Night Scenery, etc.) with the ideal camera adjustments. The camera also can shoot up to 8 frames per second in High-speed Burst Mode, shoot time-lapse images and offers Creative Control Mode in both standard and panorama dimensions so you can add specialized effects to your photos.
A 2.7" TFT LCD screen with 230k-dot resolution and anti-reflective coating provides composition and playback viewing. The LCD features 11-step auto brightness adjustment for better viewing based on light conditions.
The "tough" features of the TS25 allow it to go pretty much anywhere your adventures take you. It is waterproof to a depth of 23' (7 m), shock proof from a drop height of 5' (1.5 m), freeze proof to a temperature of 14ºF (-10ºC) and dust and sand proof. When dirty, the camera can be easily washed off with water. The TS25 features Advanced Underwater Mode which compensates for the red colors often lost when shooting underwater providing more natural looking underwater images. The camera also contains a torch light when shooting video underwater or at night and it can be simply used as a flashlight when you are not shooting.
