The LUMIX TS5 is the ultimate hardy camera, ensuring that no matter where you find yourself, such as diving with sea life, hanging from a rock face or exploring the winding alleys of a foreign market, you will be able to take the best shot possible without having to worry about whether or not your camera is able to withstand the conditions. Waterproof to a depth of 43 feet, shockproof from a height of 6.6 feet, freeze proof from a temperature of 14 degrees Fahrenheit and pressure resistant to 220 lbs, the LUMIX TS5 really is the tough-man of the compact camera market.

The LUMIX TS5 enables full HD, 1920×1080 movie recording in AVCHD Progressive format and allows exceptional audio capture with Dolby Digital. For those times when operating the camera with two hands may be difficult a dedicated button makes it possible to let you instantly start recording movies without having to choose any extra settings.  Furthermore, the iA Mode is available in movie recording and the POWER O.I.S.  comes in handy when shooting while on the move or from challenging places, countering handshake and vibrations.

A LEICA DC-VARIO ELMAR lens (28mm wide with a 4.6 x zoom), Full HD video, 1920×1080 (50p) and a 3.0 inch LCD all combine to ensure that the TS5 punches well above its weight.

You will be able to take photos from more remote places: simply download the Panasonic Image App to a mobile device and use it as your viewfinder to take incredible photographs while the TS5 is nestled in a tough-to-shoot location such as hanging down in between a crevice or the back of a boat. Furthermore, you can tag the location of the photo using the built-in GPS functionality. Other benefits from the Wi-Fi connectivity include 1GB cloud storage, upload and back-up, as well as connectivity to your TV for viewing on the big screen and easy transfer for printing by wireless printers.
