From the Manufacturer
The optimal outdoor companion, the Lumix TS4 combines a GPS*1, compass, altimeter, barometer with waterproof*2, shockproof*3 and freeze proof features, allowing it to excel in photo and video capture under many conditions
Beyond its rugged design, the Lumix TS4 also excels in photo and video quality, offering the best of both worlds with a LEICA DC VARIO-ELMAR lens with a 4.6x optical zoom (35mm equivalent: 28-128mm), a 12.1-megapixel Hi-Speed CCD sensor and the advanced image processing LSI Venus Engine, and the ability to shoot 1,920 x 1,080 full-High Definition (HD) video in AVCHD and MP4 formats.
Panasonic Lumix TS4 Highlights
Built for Travel
The company's top-of-the-line rugged digital camera with features such as a built-in GPS*1 system, compass, altimeter, barometer, plus outstanding toughness, including: waterproof*2 to approximately 40 feet (12 meters), shockproof*3 to approximately 6.6 feet (2 meters), freeze proof to temperatures as low as 14ºF, and dustproof*2.
Thanks to its high-speed, large-capacity signal processing Venus Engine, the Lumix TS4 is not just rugged on the outside, but powerful from within as well. The Venus Engine integrates advanced signal processing capabilities to power Intelligent Noise Reduction, thus producing stunning still photos and videos. In addition, the Venus Engine powers high-speed burst shooting and super-fast response times, with Sonic Speed AF, allowing the user to catch those spur-of- the-moment memories.
iA (Intelligent Auto) Mode
For those who are looking for an intuitive shooting option, the Lumix TS4 includes Panasonic's popular iA (Intelligent Auto) mode – a suite of technologies that are automatically engaged to allow the camera to select the most appropriate settings to take high-quality photos and videos. Plus, a dedicated video record lets the user instantly start recording videos while shooting photos without having to go through any additional menu options.
With modes such as Time Lapse Shot, Miniature Effect, and Panorama Shot – photography is even more fun. With the Time Lapse Shot, once the start time, interval and the number of photos to shoot are set, the camera automatically records the images based on the settings and the Lumix TS4 can be left to record stationary subjects, such as flowers coming into bloom, clouds, or an animal. Once the data is captured, during playback the footage is condensed to give a unique sense of time. The Miniature Effect mode, in which the peripheries are defocused while saturation and contrast is emphasized, makes the photo look like a diorama. For videos recorded in this mode*4, playback is 10x fast forward, making it comical and amusing to watch. Panorama Shot makes it is possible to shoot a maximum 360-degree of horizontal / vertical panoramic image by taking consecutive shots and overlaying the photos.
*1 GPS may not work in China or in the border regions of countries neighboring China. Depending on the locations, it may not be possible to correctly receive the signals from GPS satellites. In such cases, positioning may not be possible, or a significant positioning discrepancy may occur. Information measured on this unit is only a rough indication. Do not use it for technical purposes.
*2 Waterproof/Dustproof Performance
Waterproof/dustproof rating complies with the “IPX8” and “IP6X” ratings. Provided the care and maintenance guidelines described in this document are strictly followed, this camera can operate underwater, to a depth not exceeding 12 m (40 feet) for a time not exceeding 60 minutes. This means that the camera can be used underwater for specified time in specified pressure in accordance with the handling method established by Panasonic. This does not guarantee no destruction, no malfunction, or waterproofing in all conditions.
Handling of the camera
--Waterproofing is not guaranteed if the unit is subject to an impact as a result of being hit or dropped etc. If an impact to the camera occurs, it should be
inspected (subject to a fee) by a Panasonic's Service Centre to verify that the waterproofing is still effective.
--When the camera is splashed with detergent, soap, hot spring, bath additive, sun oil, sun screen, chemicals, etc., wipe it off immediately.
--Waterproof function of the camera is for sea water and fresh water only.
--Any malfunction caused by customer misuse, or mishandling will not be covered by the warranty.
--The inside of this unit is not waterproof. Water leakage will cause malfunction.
--Supplied accessories are not waterproof (excluding Hand Strap).
--Card and battery are not waterproof. Do not handle with a wet hand. Also, do not insert wet card or battery into the camera.
--Do not leave the camera for a long period of time in places where temperature is very low (at ski resorts or at high altitude etc.) or very high [above 40ºC (104°F)], inside a car under strong sunlight, close to a heater, on the beach, etc. Waterproof performance may be degraded.
*3 Shockproof Performance
Complies with “MIL-STD 810F Method 516.5-Shock”. The camera has cleared a drop test from a height of 2 m (6.6 feet) onto 3 cm (0.1 feet) thick plywood. In most cases this camera should not sustain any damage if dropped from a height not exceeding 2 m (6.6 feet). However, the drop height was changed from 122 cm (4 feet) to 200 cm (6.6 feet) dropping onto 3 cm (0.1 feet) thick plyboard. (Disregarding appearance change such as loss of paint or distortion of the part where drop impact is applied.)
*4 Sound will not be recorded with [MINIATURE EFFECT] in Creative Control Mode and approximately 1/10 of the time period is recorded. (If you record for 10 minutes, the resulting motion picture recording will be approximately 1 minute long)
Top Customer Reviews
I had read several reviews about this camera ruining people's vacations by leaking the first time in the ocean.
I foolishly trusted that Panasonic had fixed the problem...
To our horror, the camera leaked the first few seconds in the water!!!
We missed many great shots & ended up renting a camera for 2 days to at least have some photos to bring home.
Test every camera as the dive camera rental shops do...submerge in water... if more that the smallest bubble comes out... seals have failed!
I will not trust any underwater camera...protective housings are the way to go!
Store kindly refunded our money but that doesn't bring our missed photos back,
thanks Panasonic for a camera that should be pulled from the market!
