New Waterproof Lumix Camera Offers More Creative Control
Panasonic’s Lumix DMC-TS3 has been one of the bestselling waterproof digital cameras on the market since it was released, but now Panasonic is taking their waterproof Lumix line to new levels by introducing the Lumix DMC-TS4.
The new Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS4 will give users more creative control than the earlier point-and-shoot Lumix cameras by allowing users to adjust the shutter speed and aperture. The TS4 also comes with new creative modes – Time Lapse Shot, Miniature Effect and Panorama Shot. With Time Lapse Shot, the user selects the start time, interval time and number of photos to shoot and the camera does the rest. The Miniature Effect mode emphasizes saturation and contrast while defocusing the peripheries of the image, making the photo look like a diorama. Videos recorded in Miniature Effect mode are played back in 10x fast forward, making the effect more comical. As the name suggest, Panorama Shot allows users to shoot a horizontal or vertical panoramic image by taking consecutive shots and overlaying the images to create a panoramic photo up to 360 degrees.
In addition, the latest waterproof Lumix camera from Panasonic comes with GPS, a compass, altimeter and barometer. The DMC-TS4 is bundled with a DVD that integrates the camera’s new GPS system with more than a million landmarks and 82 countries and regions. Users who geo tag their photos can automatically sort and play the images by location so they can literally trace their journey through photos.
These fancy features are in addition to many of the popular features found on earlier models of the waterproof Lumix camera series. Like its predecessor the DMC-TS3, the Lumix TS4 is rugged. The camera is waterproof to approximately 40 feet (12 meters), shockproof from falls up to 6.6 feet (2 meters), freezeproof to temperatures as low as 14 degrees Fahrenheit, and dustproof. It has a Leica DC VARIO-ELMAR lens with a 4.6x optical zoom (equivalent to a 28-128mm 35mm lens), a 12.1 MP Hi-Speed CCD sensor, and the ability to shoot full-HD (1920 x 1080) video in both and MP4 formats.
The Panasonic LUMIX TS4 is available in orange, blue, black and silver options with a suggested retail price of $399.99.
