Panasonic Lumix TS3 - Rugged Outdoor CameraThe Panasonic Lumix TS3 is one of the best spec’d rugged point-and-shoot cameras available and one of the most popular cameras on It’s got a 4.6x 28mm wide-angle Leica zoom lens and Panasonic reduced the resolution from 14 to 12-megapixels to improve image quality and it can capture 1920 x 1080 HD video as well as stills. It’s waterproof to 40 feet, freezeproof and can handle drops of about 6 feet – perfect for outdoor photographers who want to keep a point-and-shoot camera in their pocket all the time. It even has built-in GPS so you can tag your images to remember where you took them! Mountain bikers, skiers, skateboarders and other outdoor action sports fans will love the 7 frames-per-second full-resolution burst capability. I got to check out the TS3 in person at the PhotoPlus Expo last week and took some pictures to share with our readers.

Panasonic Lumix TS3 Waterproof, Shockproof P&S Camera

Although I haven’t had a chance to properly test the Panasonic Lumix TS3, I love waterproof, shockproof pocket cameras for mountain biking and skiing. I carry one in a pouch on the shoulder strap of my backpack and I never have to worry about weather or crashing on the camera. Since it was announced, the Panasonic TS3 has consistently been one of the top ten most popular cameras on the site. The TS3 should be high on the list of desirable cameras for all outdoor aficionados.
