The Lumix TS7 is Panasonic’s new waterproof tough camera, built to take pictures while handling absolutely anything you could throw at it. It’s so waterproof, you can snorkel down to depths of 102 feet without any leaks or water getting in. At the same time, it’s drop proof down to 6.6 feet, and freeze-proof to 14F in case you’d like to do any winter mountaineering. It’s also pressure-resistant up to 220 pounds of force. So, suffice to say, this is one tough device, and it won’t let you down out in the field.
The TS7 is equipped with a 20.4-megapixel MOS sensor, which performs well in low-light and also shoots video in 4k at 30 frames per second. The 28-128mm lens includes 4.6x optical zoom and you can view your shots on the 3.0”, 1040k-dot rear-facing LCD monitor or the built-in optical viewfinder. The TS7 can shoot in 10FPS burst mode in its full 20.4 MP resolution.
Lumix also included a Power Optical Image Stabilization to keep things sharp, especially moving objects. And there’s a whole host of other cool features, such as a built-in compass and altimeter for your outdoor trips. You can also freeze your 4k videos and select your favorite frames to save as a photo, and Post Focus lets you focus your shot after taking it.
Throw in the all-too-necessary Wi-Fi Connectivity, and ability to embed your location in conjunction with the GPS on your smartphone, nd you have a capable, tough, practically bombproof point-and-shoot camera ready for all your outdoors adventures. It’s an excellent kit addition for those of us who like to capture our outdoor trips but would rather pass up the capability of a DSLR or mirrorless camera for the durability and reliability of something…nearly indestructible.
The Lumix TS7 will be released on June 30th.
