"With a rugged protective design, underwater capabilities, GPS tagging and advanced measuring technologies (compass, barometer and altimeter), the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS3 lends itself well to active lifestyle, family and travel type photography. Based on our tests with the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS3, the 4.6x optical zoom with Mega Optical Image Stabilizer..." More »

"Panasonic has had a few years of experience in the tough-cam market. The TS1 was tough for the sake of being tough, almost like a test run for Panasonic to prove to themselves that they could put a decent adventure camera together. The TS2 actually took good photos, one of the first tough-cams to pull off that feat. The third-generation TS3 shows a lev..." More »

"The image quality of our outdoor sample images was surprisingly disappointing. Areas of overexposure are evident with just a glance at the photos. When looking closer, we also see some edge softness and a great deal of noise in shadow and lower light areas. Only with the Firehouse shot was the camera able to pull it all together and produce the excellent qu..." More »

"The FT3 consistently takes well exposed images with good reproduction of colours. At both ends of the lens detail is really good throughout the images. The digital zoom image below combines both intelligent and digital zoom, for a total of 24.2x optical zoom. When switching the camera to macro mode it can focus down to just 5cm and superb looking macro imag..." More »

- Nov 26 2013 Good Tough Camera, Semperwise
This camera has been tough as nails so far. The kids (and me too) have dropped it repeatedly on hard surfaces and it chugs right along. It's been in the ocean, pool, lake, even volcanic hot springs, and it has performed beautifully. Picture quality is good, not breathtaking but good. Video quality is pretty good. I love that this thing allows you to zoom in and out...
- Nov 18 2013 Great all round camera, Gerrrit6
I have being using this camera for over a year and it is great! Still use it in the pool and in the rain on our dog walks to the beach. I do not leave the house without it. I use it to document the restoration if my truck and it gets quite a beating in the shop.Great durable camera. I wish it had a better zoom but I guess you can't have it all...
- Nov 11 2013 Incredible camera! Does everything you ask of it!, W. T. Gardner "InfernoOrangeSS"
This is one of the best waterproof digital cameras I have ever used. It has gone with us on every vacation and has always preformed incredibly well! We have been snorkeling in the Caribbean and on lots of beaches. We never have to worry about our camera. This thing takes incredible pictures and video and we could not be more pleased with it....
- Nov 07 2013 One of my best point and shoots, ever!, JC
I absolutely love this camera. I initially purchased this to take to Turks and Caicos as we planned on spending a lot of time in the water and I wanted to be able to take underwater photos. The quality of the photo I will admit, is not without some flaws. The image can sometimes be blurry or grainy in underwater action shots, however, my favorite feature of this camer...
