"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 »

This is my go-to camera for trips into dusty environments, such as the desert. It's also been fun to play with at the pool, although in-water use is just a bonus for me. The GPS can be a little slow to lock onto your location, but if you have the patience you'll get tagged photos which are great for reconstructing routes and setups once you're back at a computer....
- Feb 23 2014 Rugged, but picture quality is only so-so, tmann
I bought this to replace an older Canon digital camera, a PowerShot SD770IS (10 MP). That camera died as the result of moisture intrusion during our honeymoon, which sucked. Not wanting that to happen again, I sought out to buy a waterproof camera. At the time, this seemed to be the best option available. The camera does seem to be rugged and waterproof, so it was s...
- Feb 21 2014 Great for water and snow and all outside shots, Matt Gregory
This camera works great for what I bought it for...Snowboarding. The bonus is that its very cool to take underwater pics as well. The only downside i can think of is that indoor and low-light shots can be very challenging....
- Feb 21 2014 STURDY, nice pictures, Danielle Underwood
I scuba, spearfish and surf. I've had this thing under to 60ft still with no problems. It is built like a little tank and takes really nice photos. It is very quick to use: boots from off to on very fast, plus it has a picture button and a separate movie record button which makes things really easy esp under water when you don't want to fuss with switching modes, etc. S...
