Panasonic today introduced the LUMIX DMC-TS3, born for users aiming to shoot high-quality photos and record full-HD videos, whilst owning a camera with rugged design and outdoor-friendly features, such as a built-in GPS function, a compass, altimeter and barometer.
Featuring a 12.1-megapixel sensor, the new camera is also:
- waterproof, up to approximately 40 feet (12m)
- shockproof to approximately 6.6 feet (2m)
- resistingfreezeproof to 14ºF (-10 degrees C); and dustproof.
The Panasonic LUMIX TS3 also features the new Panasonic 3D Photo mode, which produces a realistic 3D photo by taking 20 consecutive photos and overlays the two best to create a 3D image that can then be played on a Panasonic VIERA 3D HDTV.
The format of 3D images is compatible with MPO, and can also be played back on other MPO-compatible equipment such as a televisions, digital photo frames and printers.
