The blue Lumix DMC-TS5 Digital Camera from Panasonic is a Wi-Fi enable "tough" compact camera that can shoot both photos and Full HD video on land and underwater. A 16.1MP High Sensitivity MOS sensor provides high quality imaging and fast autofocus. A Leica DC Vario-Elmar lens offers focal lengths from wide-angle to telephoto at 28-128mm in 35mm format. Full HD 1080p is available at 60 or 30 frames per second with a dedicated one-touch button and built-in stereo microphone. Power O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilization) compensates for camera shake and offers clear images in low light or when shooting telephoto. Intelligent Auto (iA) Mode is available for simple point and shoot capability and Scene Mode provides predefined adjustments to shoot certain types of scenes (Sunset, Panorama, Night Scenery, etc.) with the ideal camera settings. The camera also features manual exposure control, time-lapse shooting and continuous burst shooting up to 10 frames per second at full resolution.

A 3.0" TFT LCD screen with 460k-dot resolution and anti-reflective coating provides composition and playback viewing. The TS5's compact and "grippable" design with raised buttons makes one hand shooting and adjustments easy. One touch video, Wi-Fi and playback buttons are ideal for the type of activity this camera is meant to document.

Built-in Wi-Fi enables you to send images to your smart phone or tablet with one touch. The TS5 also offers Near Field Communication (NFC) to connect with a compatible Wi-Fi device by simply tapping the two together. The Lumix Remote app must be downloaded to your smart phone or tablet to wirelessly connect with the TS5, but the app also allows your phone to be used as a remote control for your camera and offers cloud storage for your images, which can be important when shooting in locations where getting to your computer may be difficult. Built-in GPS functionality allows for geo-tagging of your images.

The tough features of the TS5 allow it to go pretty much anywhere your adventures take you. It is waterproof to a depth of 43' (13.1 m), shockproof from a drop height of 6.5' (2 m), freeze proof to a temperature of 14ºF (-10ºC) and pressure resistant to 220 lbs. It also offers anti-fog protection for its lens.

Replaced a lost camera of the same model. That's a first, all other camera purchases have been to replace ones that failed.

this is an ok camera, just so-so for me

i bought this for a cruise, so i could get pics on our vacation, including underwater and beach pics. I didnt wanna lug around my dslr and risk hurting it , so i got this. it didn't leak which is good, and i was able to take tons of pics. It fits in my back pocket which i liked. It doesn't take good pictures when there isn't a lot of light, so my dim lit indoor pics or outdoor night pics didn't come out great. My cell phone took better dim lit pictures. It took great pictures in lots of light and was a lot of fun to take hundreds of quick snapshots. I'll use this camera any time i go to the river or beach or where i dont want my dslr to risk getting damaged. I'm still keeping my eye out for a nicer underwater camera, this was is just so-so for me. Did the job, nothing fancy.

Returned and disappointed

I bought this camera to replace my old Sony AS30 action camera. I use it on duckhunting and fishing trips. A have many 3D swivel and stands to hold it on my chest or boat. Photo quallity is OK for daylight and evening. Video quallity is normall/good to PC video editing (if compare with Panasonic GH5 or Nikon7100 AFS 15-55). When you recording wideo, you will hear how autofocus motor is working. So continues autofocus is OFF. Battery life for video is about 1.5 hours to full time record. Good - Autofocus and stabiliser for video LED light Stereo mic WiFi to connect my smartphone and copy /delete pictures Cons Would be perfect to have 2.8-5.9 or faster lens.

This little camera is taking some pretty darn good photos! Better than I expected with some quite good scene automatic settings. The underwater photos came out quite nicely and it was very simple to operate underwater
