Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS2

Manufacturers of compact digital cameras realised that users can be only so careful with their gadgets. They would like to take their cameras to places where no one would ever imagine, and often end up dropping it on the ground or even at times (God forbid!) in water. Thus, they came up with the tough cameras which were shockproof, dustproof and waterproof cameras. One example of it is the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS2, available in UK and Europe as FT2. This 14mp tough camera also offers zoom of 4.6x wide angle zoom.

Design and Functioning

True to its title of tough cameras, the Panasonic's solidly-built dust, shock, waterproof and now freezeproof TS2 feels completely capable of taking the challenge of some rough treatment. To add to its toughness, the camera also includes rubber padding, reinforced glass and carbon resin inside the camera. In addition to the new freezeproof quality, the DMC-FT2 also has a thicker protective cover over the LCD screen. This camera is available in colours as experimentative as its features in Glossy Turquoise, Fiery Orange, Cool Yellow and Gun Metal Grey. Since additional housing is unnecessary for underwater operation, the Panasonic Lumix TS2 is an extremely versatile camera that you can take with you wherever the action calls. In addition to reinforcing the exterior of the camera with shock-resistant material, the Panasonic Lumix TS2 uses folded optics to prevent its lens unit from taking damage when dropped during operation. The lens unit is protected by a supplementary damper to absorb the force from shock impact. Intelligent Resolution is a brand new feature that's provided by the TS2's upgraded Venus Engine HD II engine. When turned on, the camera automatically removes some of the image degradation caused by either the digital zoom process or during high-sensitivity shooting, enhancing the edge detail to make the subject clearer and smoothing softer areas such as faces. The Panasonic Lumix TS2 comes with 40MB of internal memory and is compatible with SD/SDHC/SDXC cards.
