    The DMC-TS4 features a high-quality LEICA DC lens* with 4.6x optical zoom from 28mm wide-angle (35mm camera equivalent: 28-128mm). The folded optics of shaft guide method is adopted to secure the toughness of the lens unit. This lens unit comprises 10 elements and a prism unit in 8 groups, including an ED lens and 5 aspherical lenses with 6 aspherical surfaces passing the Leica's stringent standards to deliver exceptional optical performance to the edges.
  • 28mm Wide-Angle Lens

  • 9.3x Intelligent Zoom
    The Intelligent Zoom is an extensive zoom function using digital zoom, however, you can even draw the subject 2x closer than the original optical zoom with minimum deterioration of image quality thanks to the Intelligent Resolution technology. This means the 4.6x optical can virtually extend to 9.3x equivalent.
  • POWER O.I.S.
    The POWER O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) suppresses the low-frequency vibration hand-shake component, which is physically generated when pressing the shutter button or when shooting at night with a slow shutter speed. Active mode is effective for video recording.
  • 12.1-megapixel Hi-Speed CCD
    The 12.1-megapixel CCD with 2-channel signal output structure boasts higher signal transfer speed for the operations that require high performance and speed such as full HD video recording and high speed continuous shooting. The image quality is also improved thanks to the higher sensitivity which is made possible by highly efficient light condensation adoption larger on-chip micro lenses.
  • Venus Engine
    The DMC-TS4's Venus Engine processes large amount of full HD data at high-speed. At the same time, the multi-task image-processing engine, the Venus Engine realizes a super-fast response time.
  • Intelligent Noise Reduction System
    The excellent S/N ratio of the CCD sensor and the Intelligent Noise Reduction system in the Venus Engine make both photos and videos shot at any sensitivity from low to high and boast outstanding clearness.
  • 1920 x 1080 Full HD Video in AVCHD Format / MP4 Format
    The DMC-TS4 is an advanced photographic tool for recording not only great photos but also beautiful full HD 1,920 x 1,080 videos in AVCHD (MPEG-4 / H.264) format*1 / MP4 format. The AVCHD format excels in the compatibility with AV equipment like HDTVs or Blu-ray Disc™ players. The MP4 format has higher compatibility with computers.
  • High-quality Sound
    The videos come with the high-quality sound of Dolby® Digital Creator, to offer highly realistic sound to the motion images.
  • Wind Cut
    The Wind Cut function is available to block out most of the noise from background wind. This gives you higher quality sound when taking images on breezy days.
  • POWER O.I.S. with Active Mode
    For more effective countermeasure against blur, the Active Mode is equipped with the DMC-TS4 for an option of image stabilization in video recording. This mode is especially effective in active video recording such as shooting while walking.
  • LED Light
    The DMC-TS4 features an LED light that records beautiful videos even in dusky underwater environments or at a nighttime camp. A convenient auto function also automatically turns on the LED when the ambient light becomes dim.
  • 4.6x Optical Zoom in Video Recording
    The DMC-TS4 lets you use a 4.6x zoom for videos. It takes you right up close to images like animals and sports scenes.
  • Time Lapse Shot
    Once the start time, the interval and the number of picture to shoot are set, the camera automatically records images. You can leave the camera and get a record of stationary observation for subjects such as flowers coming into bloom, scudding cloud, or wild animals in nature.
  • Panorama Shot
    The Panorama Shot Mode makes it is possible to shoot a 360-degree horizontal / vertical panoramic image with consequent shots taken by overlaying the previous picture.
  • Fun Functions – PlaybackAuto Retouch
    The Auto Retouch function adjusts contrast and brightness to give different impression to the photo with just a press of a button. Appropriate retouch is automatically applied depending on the image – if the image was shot too dark, it can be clear and bright to look it nicer with this function.
  • Handheld Night Shot Mode
    The Handheld Night Shot Mode generates a beautiful night scenery with illumination by multi-layering the images shot consecutively. Bright, glamorous night scenery can be recorded without using a tripod.
  • 3D Photo Mode
    The 3D Photo Mode* produces a 3D image in the camera. The image-processing method used by LUMIX records beautiful images with less distortion or visible image links.
  • Sonic Speed AF
    The Sonic Speed AF and a quick start-up time give the DMC-TS4 super high speed response that helps to catch even the most fleeting photo opportunities.
  • AF Tracking
    Once you focus on your subject, the AF Tracking automatically tracks it until you press the shutter. When you're taking images of an active subject, like children or pets, this function eliminates the need to press the shutter button halfway down repeatedly to readjust the focus.
  • 3.7 fps in 12.1-megapixel Full-resolution
    The DMC-TS4 lets you snap off consecutive shots at approx. 3.7 frames per second in full resolution*1. You can take a series of shots, then choose the one you like the best and delete the rest. You can also select High-speed Burst Mode or Flash Burst Mode.
  • iA (Intelligent Auto) Mode
    In the iA (Intelligent Auto) Mode, the camera does all the work, leaving you free to compose shots and capture moments in both photo and video recording. The Intelligent Resolution technology and 9.3x Intelligent Zoom are always activated in the iA Mode.
  • Shake Detection - POWER O.I.S.
    Gyrosensors detect hand-shaking and the O.I.S. lens shifts to compensate, helping prevent blurring caused by hand-shaking.
  • Manual Exposure
    The DMC-TS4 provides easy-to-use manual controls. You can set the aperture to control the depth of field, and adjust the shutter speed to freeze moving subjects or create a motion blur that exaggerates the feeling of movement.
  • 2.7-inch LCD with AR Coating
    The DMC-TS4's 2.7-inch LCD features 230K-dot Intelligent LCD with wide-viewing angle. It automatically adjusts the brightness in 11 steps according to shooting conditions. In addition, the AR (anti-reflective) coating LCD minimizes glare and provides clear images, for high visibility even in outdoor brightness.

          Purchased this camera for an upcoming Elk hunt.
          After review of some pictures at home i was surprised to learn that the images were grainy.
          I own other Panasonic compact cameras that are great. What good is a waterproof, shockproof camera with bad images? I returned this camera and purchased the regular compact Lumix 20X Zoom and pictures are great.

            Comments about Panasonic Lumix 12.1 Megapixel Orange Digital Camera:

            So far I have used the DMCTS4 in salt water in Dominican Republic and in the heavily clornated pool. I carefully followed the tedious instruction on cleaning the gasket and rinching in clean water after each use and eveything worked fin. Photo taken in auto mode and SCN mode were sharp and color perfect. Vidieos are high quality, both in water and out of water. The Time Laps feature is a fun option I used for sunsets and beginninig of a storm. Night shooting mode is super even when hand held. Battery life is limited using GPS but can be disabled. I bought two 1500ma batteries to extend battery life.
