OverviewEnvironments - Waterproof, Shockproof, Dustproof, Freezeproof
The DMC-TS5 is not only waterproof, shockproof, freezeproof and dustproof, but it also features AVCHD Full HD recording capabilities. The tough and rugged design makes it the ideal choice for active users needing the ultimate hybrid for capturing both still and motion images during outdoor activities. Starting at the 28 mm wide angle, and zooming up to a useful 128 mm in telephoto, the DMC-TS5 gives users the flexibility for a variety of shooting environments - especially underwater, where movement is often restricted and the angle of view becomes important for composing shots.
The DMC-TS5 can be used in water to a depth of 13 meters (DMC-TS25: 7 meters). It supports active shooting on a beach, underwater or in a pool. When the camera gets dirty, simply rinse it off with soft and fresh water.
This camera has passed a drop test from 2 meters (DMC-TS25: 1.5 meters) in height in accordance with "MIL-STD 810F Method 516.5-Shock". It lets you shoot actively while moving around with the camera in one hand.
With freezeproof up to -10°C, the TS series supports shooting while skiing, snowboarding or ice skating.
With its rubber padding, reinforced glass and carbon resins inside the camera, the TS series features an airtight body protected against water immersion, dust and sand. This is the perfect camera to take with you on all your outdoor activities.
Load (Pressure) resistance
The DMC-TS5 features a load (pressure) resistance of 100 kgf (220 lb)*1 thanks to the reinforced rib structure of its internal design. You can safely put it into a backpack or pocket with ease.
Quad indicator (DMC-TS5)
In addition to GPS, the DMC-TS5 has a compass, altimeter and a barometer. Preserve memories in beautiful photos and videos with this all round active camera. Also, information measured on this unit is only a rough indication and should not be used for technical purposes.
You can check the altitude of the current location, which is displayed by range (-600 to 9000 m). A depth meter will be displayed instead of the altimeter in "Beach & Snorkeling" mode. Altitude can be expressed in two forms: above sea level (absolute height from sea surface) or relative altitude (difference in altitude between two locations). In this instance, the DMC-TS5 displays relative altitude.
With the current atmospheric pressure as a reference, it is displayed on the graph within the range of -10 to 10 hPa. The barometer indicates changes in weather when atmospheric pressure rises or drops.
With this camera, eight bearings are measured based on the direction the lens of the camera is pointing. The coloured portion of the compass needle points north and when the GPS setting is OFF, magnetic declination is not corrected. The compass in this unit points "true north" when it corrects "magnetic declination" based on the latitude and longitude acquired in the GPS system.
GPS and GLONASS (DMC-TS5)
GPS stands for Global Positioning System. You can check your current location using GPS satellites. The camera receives radio signals that contain orbital information and time information from multiple GPA satellites, and uses them to calculate its current position. Calculating a position in this manner is known as "positioning". Also, satellite navigation system "GLONASS" satellite operated by Russian government is supported. This camera can record the location information of a place where a picture was taken on the pictures. The TS5 can also automatically adjust the time or display a place where a picture was taken on a map during playback.
