About Panasonic DMC-TS25

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS25 Digital Camera (Black) is a compact "tough" camera that can shoot both photos and HD video on land and underwater. A 16.1MP CCD sensor provides clear, well-defined images even in low light and a Lumix DC Vario lens offers focal lengths from wide-angle to telephoto at 25-100mm in 35mm format. An 8x Intelligent Zoom function offers even longer digital zoom reach when needed. 23-area Autofocus and Quick AF combine to provide fast and accurate autofocus.

HD 720p video is available with a dedicated button one-touch button. Shooting a still photo while shooting video is supported and MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilization) compensates for camera shake in photo and video, offering clear images in low light or when shooting telephoto. Intelligent Auto (iA) Mode is available for point and shoot capability with all assistive features engaged and Scene Mode provides predefined settings to shoot certain types of scenes (Sunset, Starry Sky, Night Scenery, etc.) with the ideal camera adjustments. The camera also can shoot up to 8 frames per second in High-speed Burst Mode, shoot time-lapse images and offers Creative Control Mode in both standard and panorama dimensions so you can add specialized effects to your photos.

A 2.7" TFT LCD screen with 230k-dot resolution and anti-reflective coating provides composition and playback viewing. The LCD features 11-step auto brightness adjustment for better viewing based on light conditions.

The "tough" features of the TS25 allow it to go pretty much anywhere your adventures take you. It is waterproof to a depth of 23' (7 m), shock proof from a drop height of 5' (1.5 m), freeze proof to a temperature of 14deg.F (-10deg.C) and dust and sand proof. When dirty, the camera can be easily washed off with water. The TS25 features Advanced Underwater Mode which compensates for the red colors often lost when shooting underwater providing more natural looking underwater images. The camera also contains a torch light when shooting video underwater or at night and it can be simply used as a flashlight when you are not shooting.

Do not buy this for your vacation!


from Riverside, CA  -  Pro Photographer

Bought this camera for snorkeling on our Hawaiian vacation. The camera worked great at first. Then it fogged up and the photos were horrible. Then the camera started malfunctioning. We left the camera open with the SD card and battery out, hoping that it would dehumidify, or 'dry' out. It didn't, until we got home from vacation. Lots of missed photo opportunities! Now it works, but we will never 'depend' on it again. Adorama will not accept returns on any underwater camera that has been 'underwater', and Panasonic states that 'fogging' is normal. This might be a good 'bad weather' camera for everyday use, but not for underwater use on a 'special' vacation. In our case a TOTAL WASTE of MONEY.


Wife loves it!!


from Sicily, italy  -  Photo Enthusiast

We needed a camera to take with us to the beach. We have an u/w setup for diving but we needed something low key so i decided to get this for me. Tough and shockproof!! Plus my wife wanted the panorama feature!!!


good camera


from USA  -  Photo Enthusiast

use it in environments I don't want to use my DSLR in. video in water is excellent.


Expensive for quality


from Lakewood  -  Casual Photographer

Purchased for outdoor water use and guess it wil serve the purpose, however picture quality could be more sharp and shutter lag a lot faster. Battery dies suprisngly quick. Order a spare battery with this camera. Buttons were small with poor feedback.


Fantastic buy! Great customer service!


from Destin, Fl  -  Photo Enthusiast

I have owned one of these cameras for the past 7 years. I lost one. Damaged another (and didn't buy the insurance) so now I own my third one! The one I just bought however, is a gift for my daughter. I love this camera for underwater and rainy day pics, etc that I just had to get one for her so she could take it to the pool and get great pics of my grand-daughter!!!!
