WiFi Enabled Tough Adventure Camera

Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS6 Digital Camera The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS6 Digital Camera produced in Orange, Red, Green and Blue is a waterproof "tough" compact camera featuring a 16MP High Sensitivity MOS sensor for acquiring still pictures and Full 1080p HD video. The Leica DC 4.6x zoom lens has a 28-128mm, 35mm equivalent offering wide thru telephoto focal lengths. Power OIS diminishes the appearance of camera shake when taking photos at telephoto lengths, or when photographing with longer shutter speeds.

A 3.0" TFT LCD monitor with 460k-dot resolution provides viewing for composition and playback of your images and videos. You can capture Full 1080p HD video in AVCHD Progressive and MP4 formats using 50p and 60p. The TS6 features built-in Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity, and when coupled with the Panasonic Image Application some camera functions may be controlled from a smart device. The camera also offers built-in GPS functions that allow for geo-tagging your images. It is waterproof down to 43' and shockproof to 6.6'.

16.1MP MOS Sensor The advanced 16.1-megapixel High Sensitivity MOS sensor delivers high-speed signal output and high-sensitivity image recording, including images up to ISO 3200 in full resolution.

LEICA DC Lens with Folded Optics Technology The 4.6x optical zoom lens provides 35mm focal length equivalents of 28-128mm which ranges from wide-angle to telephoto to incorporate most shooting situations. The lens features folded optics construction and anti-fog glass.

3.0" LCD Display The 3.0" screen has a near-100% field of view and incorporates the Lumix Intelligent LCD function which automatically adjusts brightness levels in 11 steps to match the ambient light conditions.

Underwater Shots Advanced Underwater Mode compensates for the red tones easily lost in underwater shooting to create more natural underwater images. Additional action modes include Sports, Snow, Beach, and Snorkeling.

Manual Exposure Manual exposure allows you to set the aperture to control the depth of field, and adjust the shutter speed to freeze moving subjects or create a motion blur that exaggerates the feeling of movement.

Quad Indicator Specially designed for active outdoor use, this camera has GPS, a compass, altimeter, and a barometer to show and record altitude, barometric pressure, and orientation data. The barometer also indicates underwater depth.

GPS The camera's GPS (Global Positioning System) complies with GLONASS (Global Navigation Satellite System) to enhance detection accuracy with an increased array of satellites.

Creative Control / Creative Retouch Creative Control in recording mode and Creative Retouch in playback mode give you the power to turn ordinary situations into highly expressive images. Creative Effects include: Expressive, Retro, High Key, Low Key, Sepia, Dynamic Monochrome, Impressive Art, High Dynamic, Cross Process, Toy Effect, Miniature Effect, Soft Focus, Star Filter, and One Point Color.

Creative Panorama With the Creative Panorama function, you can shoot and overlay consecutive horizontal / vertical images, and add filter effects with Creative Controls.

Time Lapse Shooting Leave the camera to record of stationary observation for subjects such as flowers coming into bloom or scudding cloud. The series of consequent images can be combined in a camera to produce a timelapse video.

Torch Light A built-in torch light helps record videos in dark underwater environments or in other low-light situations. The light can also function when not shooting to act as a flashlight. ✓
