    Detailed Description
    (Manufacturer # DMC-TS4A )


    Lens Performance: LEICA DC Lens with Folded Optics Technology

    The DMC-TS4 features a high-quality LEICA DC lens* with 4.6x optical zoom from 28mm wide-angle (35mm camera equivalent: 28-128mm). The folded optics of shaft guide method is adopted to secure the toughness of the lens unit. This lens unit comprises 10 elements and a prism unit in 8 groups, including an ED lens and 5 aspherical lenses with 6 aspherical surfaces passing the Leica's stringent standards to deliver exceptional optical performance to the edges.

    * Converted to standard 35mm camera equivalent, at the maximum wide position.

    28mm Wide-angle Lens

    The 28mm wide-angle lens* lets you easily capture large groups of people indoors or expansive architectural structures and scenes with dynamic width and rich perspective, even from short distances.

    * Converted to standard 35mm camera equivalent, at the wide-end.

    9.3x Intelligent Zoom

    The Intelligent Zoom is an extensive zoom function using digital zoom, however, you can even draw the subject 2x closer than the original optical zoom with minimum deterioration of image quality thanks to the Intelligent Resolution technology. This means the 4.6x optical can virtually extend to 9.3x equivalent.

    1920 x 1080 Full HD Video in AVCHD Format / MP4 Format

    The DMC-TS4 is an advanced photographic tool for recording not only great photos but also beautiful full HD 1,920 x 1,080 videos in AVCHD (MPEG-4 / H.264) format*1 / MP4 format. The AVCHD format excels in the compatibility with AV equipment like HDTVs or Blu-ray Disc™ players. The MP4 format has higher compatibility with computers.

    *1 Full HD (1,920 × 1,080) videos in AVCHD format are output by the image sensor at 30p (NTSC), and recorded at 60i (NTSC).

    High-quality Sound

    The videos come with the high-quality sound of Dolby® Digital Creator, to offer highly realistic sound to the motion images.

    POWER O.I.S. with Active Mode

    For more effective countermeasure against blur, the Active Mode is equipped with the DMC-TS4 for an option of image stabilization in video recording. This mode is especially effective in active video recording such as shooting while walking.

    3D Photo Mode

    The 3D Photo Mode* produces a 3D image in the camera. The image-processing method used by LUMIX records beautiful images with less distortion or visible image links.

    * The picture size is fixed to 2-megapixel (16:9).

    3D Image Viewer

    The 3D image can be played back on MPO-compatible equipment such as VIERA HDTVs and digital photo frames, or printed.

    Sonic Speed AF

    The Sonic Speed AF and a quick start-up time give the DMC-TS4 super high speed response that helps to catch even the most fleeting photo opportunities.

    iA (Intelligent Auto) Mode

    In the iA (Intelligent Auto) Mode, the camera does all the work, leaving you free to compose shots and capture moments in both photo and video recording. The Intelligent Resolution technology and 9.3x Intelligent Zoom are always activated in the iA Mode.

    3D Image Viewer / VIERA Link

    Photos or videos recorded in AVCHD on SD/SDHC/SDXC Memory Cards are easy to view on a Panasonic VIERA TV. Simply insert the card into the VIERA Image Viewer (SD/SDHC/SDXC Memory Card slot) on VIERA TV or Blu-ray Disc™ players to playback your contents.

    With the DMC-TS4, you can use an optional HDMI micro cable to output images you took from the camera directly to the TV for VIERA Link. The pictures taken with the 3D Photo Mode via the 3D Image Viewer offers you a whole new exciting experience.

    LUMIX Image Uploader

    You can upload images to Facebook™ (photos and videos) and YouTube™ (videos) with simple operation.

    Waterproof down to 12 Meters!

    With waterproof performance to a depth of 12m equivalent to the "IPX8" and "IP6X" standard, the DMC-TS4 supports active shooting on a beach, underwater or in a pool. If the camera gets dirty, soil and dust can be washed off by using water.

    Shockproof up to 2 Meters!

    The DMC-TS4 is shockproof from a height up to 2m in accordance with the "MIL-STD 810F Method 516.5-Shock" test standard. It lets you shoot actively while moving around with the camera in one hand.


    The DMC-TS4 is dustproof equivalent to the "IPX8" and "IP6X" standard. While hiking or playing sports, fine dust particles can enter through gaps in the camera body and cause malfunction. The DMC-TS4 can be used in these activities without problems.

    Freezeproof down to -10°C!

    With freezeproof to -10 degrees C, the DMC-TS4 supports shooting while skiing, snowboarding or skating.
