Comprising the essentials needed to begin shooting, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS30 Digital Camera with Accessory Kit from B&H bundles the tough point-and-shoot with a memory card and a protective camera pouch.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS30 Digital Camera (Blue)

The blue Lumix DMC-TS30 Digital Camera from Panasonic is a compact "tough" camera that can shoot photos and HD video in extremely cold temperatures underwater or on dry land. The TS30 is dust, freeze, shock, and waterproof. Its 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.

The camera can shoot HD 720p video and has a dedicated one-touch video 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 at telephoto lengths. Intelligent Auto 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 can also shoot up to eight 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. The 2.7" TFT LCD screen with 230k-dot resolution provides composition and playback viewing.

The "tough" features of the TS30 allow you to take it underwater to depths of 26'. It is also shockproof from a drop height of 5', freezeproof to a temperature of 14°F, as well as sand and dustproof. When dirty, the camera can be easily washed off with water. The TS30 features Advanced Underwater Mode which compensates for the red colors often lost when shooting underwater to provide more natural-looking underwater images. The camera also contains a continuous torch light when shooting video underwater or at night or it can be simply used as a flashlight when you are not shooting.

Creative Control / Creative Retouch

Creative Control in recording mode and Creative Retouch in playback mode give you the power to turn ordinary situations into highly expressive images. Creative Effects include: Expressive, Retro, High Key, Low Key, Sepia, Dynamic Monochrome, Impressive Art, High Dynamic, Cross Process, Toy Effect, Miniature Effect, and One Point Color.

Creative Panorama

With the Creative Panorama function, you can shoot and overlay consecutive horizontal and vertical images, and then add filter effects with Creative Controls.

Underwater Shots

The red color reproduction of Advanced Underwater Mode compensates for the red tones lost in underwater shooting to create more natural underwater images. Additional action modes include Sports, Snow, Beach, and Snorkeling.

MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer)

MEGA O.I.S. automatically compensates for blurring caused by hand-shake. Even slight hand-shake movements are detected instantly by a sampling frequency of 4,000 times per second to produce sharp, clear images.

MP4 HD Video Recording

Recording dynamic MP4 HD video in 1280 x 720p starts with the simple push of an independent motion picture button, so you can switch from video to photo shooting and back again instantly.

Time-Lapse Shooting

Position the camera to record stationary observation for flowers coming into bloom, scudding clouds, and other subjects. A series of successive images can be combined in-camera to produce time-lapse video.

Torch Light

A built-in torch light helps you record videos in dusky underwater environments or low-light situations. When camera functions are inactive, you can turn the light on to illuminate subjects.

220MB Built-In Memory

When the camera's SD card is full, built-in memory automatically provides 220MB of additional storage, enough for up to 34 images.

SanDisk 64GB Extreme PRO UHS-I SDXC Memory Card

Designed for SD devices that can capture Full HD, 3D, and 4K video, as well as raw and burst photography, the 64GB Extreme PRO UHS-I SDXC Memory Card from SanDisk has a capacity of 64GB, is compatible with the UHS-I bus, and features a speed class rating of V30, which guarantees minimum write speeds of 30 MB/s. If your device does not support the V30 standard, this card also supports the U3 standard, which likewise guarantees minimum write speeds of 30 MB/s. Read speeds are supported up to 170 MB/s and write speeds max out at 90 MB/s. A built-in write-protect switch helps to safeguard against the accidental erasure of card data.

While this card has been designed for cameras that are UHS-I / V30 / U3 compatible, it may be used in devices that do not support UHS-I / V30 / U3. However, bear in mind that this card will then default to your device's speed class and bus rating, such as UHS-I and U1, which supports minimum write speeds of 10 MB/s, or Class 10, which also supports minimum write speeds of 10 MB/s.

As with most SanDisk cards, this memory card is shockproof, X-ray proof, waterproof, while also being able to withstand temperatures from -13 to 185°F, allowing you to take this card with you into extreme environments, such as snow, deserts, and pools. Should the card's data become compromised, you also benefit from the option to download RescuePRO Deluxe software as well as a limited lifetime warranty.

General Features

Transfer Speeds up to 170 MB/s

Once the shots are taken, your work is only half done. Accelerating your workflow means you can carve out more time to take your creativity to the next level.

Record 4K UHD Video

Sometimes speed is what you need. The SanDisk Extreme PRO UHS-I SDXC card delivers the performance to capture uninterrupted 4K UHD video.

Sequential Burst Mode Shots

Rated UHS Speed Class 3 (U3) and Video Speed Class 30 (V30), the SanDisk Extreme PRO UHS-I SDXC card lets you capture sequential burst mode shots.

Durability You Can Count On

Built for and tested in harsh conditions, the SanDisk Extreme PRO UHS-I SDXC card is shockproof, X-ray proof, and waterproof, while also being able to withstand temperatures from -13 to 185°F.

Recover Images You Accidentally Deleted

Includes an offer for RescuePRO Deluxe 2-year data recovery software, which lets you restore images you accidentally deleted. Registration is required.

I'm suspicious: the narrative on the overview says It's shockproof from a drop height of 5' yet the specs don't mention this, only that it's waterproof not shockproof. Can someone confirm the shockproof quality of this camera?
Asked by: Theresa P.
Here is a copy/paste from Panasonic's web site on the TS30: Travel Confidently with go Anywhere Freeze Proof (14 Degrees), shock (4.9 Ft), and Waterproof (26 Ft) Toughness. They claim it is shock proof to 4.9'

What is in the box?
Asked by: pamela
If I recall the only extra thing you will need to provide that is not in the box is a memory card. I bought it on a holiday sale a year ago so one may have been included as a special deal. I did buy an extra battery and a wrist float strap as extra accessories but no case as it was bought as gift for a backpacking / outdoorsy relative.
