Waterproof, dustproof, and shockproof
The camera body is waterproof to 3 m (9.84 ft). It's dustproof too, so you don't have to worry about dust or sand getting inside. And it has passed drop tests at a height of about 1.5 m (4.92 ft). This is one tough little camera that you can take wherever action takes you.

AVCHD format - lets you shoot beautiful HD motion images for a longer time
The TS1 records HD motion images with 1280 x 720-pixel resolution. It uses the AVCHD (MPEG-4/H.264) format,via AVCHD Lite which stores less data than other formats and thus lets you shoot more minutes of HD motion images before running out of memory.

iA mode - shooting incredible photos and motion images has never been easier
Just set the camera to iA mode, aim and shoot. The camera does the rest for you. It automatically sets the optimal mode for the shooting situation, and helps correct blurring, focus, and brightness problems. It also activates the new Face Recognition function, which finds familiar faces in a group of people and captures them in a clear focus and with proper exposure.

28mm wide-angle LEICA DC VARIO-ELMAR lens with 4.6x optical zoom
A retracting lens with folding optics is used in this 4.6x zoom lens system, which lets you take shots from the 28mm wide-angle to 129mm telephoto. This gives you the flexibility for virtually any shooting situation - even underwater shots, where the angle of view is naturally narrowed, or when you just want to fill the frame with your subject.

I bought this camera for travel and outdoor use. I wanted a camera that I would not have to worry about no matter what the weather was. Since purchasing the camera a month ago, the camera has taken great pictures inside and outside as well as underwater. On a recent trip to Mexico, my camera took awesome pictures while snorkeling as well as great videos in and out of the water. Great camera, i am glad I chose it over the Olympus Tough!

I purshased a DMC-TS1 in december 2009, wishing to film snorkelling adventures in thailand. After a few minutes in the water, a message warned my that the memory card was corrupted. I turned the camera off, dried it on the outside, then realised water leaked through the gasket. The camera was dead, so was my hopes of bringing pictures back from my trip. I sent back the camera and got a DMC-TS2 in return, thanks panasonic, that is great, a new model, more features, more pixels, more waterproof capabilities. Moving to a new diving holiday, I was very glad to try my new camera underwater. I packed everything in the hotel, the camera was shiny new, there couldn't possibly be any sand (no sand where I was) and no hairs (I'm bald) obstruing the gaskets. after a few minutes between surface and 8 meters deep, 40 pictures and 2 minutes video, I had about the same message "data cannot be written on memory card" went out of the water, dried everything, and again, a wet memory card and a totally dead camera. The guarantee period was covered by the initial purshase, witch will sadly end before my return. The camera is really great in features, the videos are really high quality, the scenes mode incredibly efficients, but I cannot believe this product has really been tested to work under water, it was totally new, I didn't dive too deep (I have a dive computer) and was very carefull using it, but it miserably failed a 5 minutes dive. So all I can do is enjoying my trip in Egypt, take bad pictures with my iPhone, and regret I didn't double the price spent on that camera to buy a case. I hope I will not get censored, I do not mean to be insulting against Panasonic, but I think people should know this product must be labelled as water resistant, not waterproof, it cannot take the pressure at 10 meters, not even at 5.

    Comments about Panasonic DMC-TS1D Orange 12.1 Megapixels Digital Camera:

    I bought this camera general use and occasional swimming pool use. We had it a year and took it to Hawaii. It leaked and ruined our vacation pictures. Leakage was not the user fault either. I was very careful about getting a good seal around the access hatches. Do not buy this camera if you plan to get it wet. Does not work as advertised.

        Purchased after looking for a slim design that had few moving parts. Previously had cameras that had sliding parts with sand getting stuck. This very quick start up and shoot time makes for excellent function at the drop of a hat. Also the video is stunning.

            But, there is a lack of manual controls. no aperture or shutter priority, therefor you might change your shooting program several times before you get the best result. Other than that, the camera is absolutely great!! Highly recommended!

                I already own this lumix ts2 camera now for over 2 weeks and it has been fantastic. I could not ask for more in a compact waterproof, dustproof, freezeproof and shock proof camera. If you keep this in mind , for what this camera actually was made for, you will love it. Also, the high quality Leica lens is amazing. The only "bad" thing is the price it sells for... but once you bought it, you won't regret it.

                  I can't be more surprised, it's amazing!!! I'd recommend this camera because I think it'd be great show pictures that crosses the limits a camera got... But it's different... With this machine you can take a photo to whatever you want 'cause it's waterproof, drustproof,shockproof, and it has a lot of facilities and convenient things you'd never expect from a digital camera... I just think that this product is something you have never imagined.

                    Comments about Panasonic DMC-TS1D Orange 12.1 Megapixels Digital Camera:

                    I'm on my honeymoon, and very disappointed that my brand new Panasonic camera will not work. After the most recent battery recharging, all I get when I turn on the camera is "THIS BATTERY CANNOT BE USED". Why would a brand new battery that came with the camera not work?!?! What am I suppose to do when I get this error? There is nothing in the documentation about this. With three days left in my honeymoon the camera is useless which is very frustrating! Very disappointing!!!

                      I bought the DMC TS2 for my work as QA/QC tech for wind turbine construction. As the 9 major components are delivered to site. Transport dirt, scratches and broken assemblies are documented with pictures. Dust, water and camera durability.
