Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS3 review: Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS3

 

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS3 is the manufacturer's third shot at a high-end rugged camera. (It's the fourth if you include the more budget-friendly DMC-TS10 .) The price continues to hover just south of the $400 mark, but Panasonic has again bulked up...

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS3 is a fast-shooting, easy-to-use rugged compact camera with excellent features to justify its high price.

The TS3's photos and movies look soft.

GPS and fast shooting performance make the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS3 a worthy rugged point-and-shoot even if its photos and videos aren't the sharpest.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS3

 

Images from the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS3 are on the soft side, but its tough build and innovative feature set make this pocket camera our favorite rugged outdoor shooter.

Integrated GPS, barometer, and altimeter. Waterproof to 40 feet. Freezeproof to 14⁰F. Can withstand drops up to 6.6 feet. Fast. Decent low-light performance. High-quality HD video capture (1080p at 17Mbps AVCHD). Can zoom and refocus while recording...

Pricey. Soft images. Barometer and altimeter information not viewable on your computer. LCD shows motion blur. Exposed lens shield is prone to fingerprints.

The FT3 should be given serious consideration from potential 'tough camera' buyers as Panasonic have given attention to little things such as a double lock on the battery compartment / sd card entry, and sped up the auto focus and start up times from...
