Panasonic has announced the new Panasonic Lumix FT10 (TS10), it’s Waterproof 3m, Freeze-proof -10℃, Shockproof 1.5m and Dust-proof, with a 14.1-megapixel High-resolution CCD, iA (Intelligent Auto) Mode and Dedicated iA Button, HD Movie Recording (1,280 x 720 pixels at 30 fps in Motion JPEG Format), 4x Optical Zoom Lens with Folded Optics Technology, 2.7-inch 230,000-dot High-resolution Intelligent LCD, it will be available in a number of colours and comes with a silicon case.

The DMC-FT10 is designed for active use, that is waterproof to a depth of 3 meters, freeze-proof of up to -10℃, shockproof for falls from up to 1.5 meters, and dust-proof. In addition, included silicone jacket gives you more secure handling. The 14.1-megapixel DMC-FT10 features a 4x optical zoom LUMIX DC VARIO lens. The folded optics technology makes it possible to fit the high performance lens in flat body. The Extra Optical Zoom function uses the center part of the CCD to extend this 4x zoom ratio to powerful 8.4x zoom at a resolution of 3-megapixel or less.

Panasonic’s world-acclaimed iA (Intelligent Auto) mode makes it easy for anyone to take beautiful photos by various shooting-assist functions. It comprehends MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) for hand-shake, Intelligent ISO Control for subject movement, Face Detection and Intelligent Scene Selector. The dedicated iA button on the top of the camera lets you enter the iA mode directly. Once you enter the iA mode, these multi-capable functions happen automatically, so you can shoot without the bother of adjusting settings every time conditions change. You can enjoy easy, trouble-free shooting in any situation and get the satisfaction that comes with capturing clear, beautiful images.

The DMC-TS10(FT10) features a high-quality 4x optical zoom LUMIX DC Lens (35-140mm*). The folded optics of the shaft guide method is adopted to secure the toughness of the lens unit. Comprising 11 elements and a prism unit in 10 groups, including an ED lens and 4 aspherical lenses with 7 aspherical surfaces, this advanced lens unit renders high resolution image corner to corner even adopting the folded optics. Further, in 3-megapixel resolution mode, the Extra Optical Zoom function provides additional magnification, extending the zoom power to 8.4x (294mm*) by using the center part of the high resolution CCD to bring subjects even closer.

Despite its flat and futuristic profile, the DMC-TS10(FT10) is waterproof to a depth of 3m and dustproof equivalent to the “IPX8” and “IP6X” standard. Thanks to rubber padding and reinforced glass and carbon resins inside the camera, the TS10(FT10) features an airtight body protected against water immersion, dust and sand.

The TS10(FT10) is drop proof from a height up to 1.5m in accordance with the “MIL-STD 810F Method516.5-Shock” test standard. In addition to reinforcing the exterior of the camera with shock-resistant material, the TS10(FT10) 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. All components including the lens unit are reexamined to endure the temperature as low as -10 degrees C to make the TS10(FT10) freezeproof.

Panasonic incorporated the Intelligent Auto mode in pursuit of the ultimate ease of operation and the reduction of misshots. The MEGA O.I.S. suppresses hand-shake and the Intelligent ISO control prevents moving subject from being blurred by optimizing the shutter speed and ISO sensitivity setting, to render sharp, clear images whatever the shooting situation is. Human faces are captured in focus and appropriate exposure with the Face Detection. Unwanted red-eyes are digitally corrected and backlight compensation automatically activates if they happen. Intelligent Scene Selector, which automatically selects whichever of 6 Scene Modes — Macro, Portrait, Scenery, Night Portrait, Night Scenery and Sunset — that best suits the shooting situation. The Quick AF system allows the camera to keep focus on the subject while the camera is in recording mode even before pressing a shutter button halfway, to get the best result out of a shutter chance because the focus is always near the subject and the AF time is minimized.

The user can activate all of these useful, convenient shooting-assist functions by simply pressing a dedicated iA button on the top of the camera. All these make the TS10(FT10) the ultimate, super-versatile automatic camera for capturing clear, beautiful, mistake-free photos with ease.

The new DMC-TS10(FT10) records dynamic HD movie in 1,280 x 720p Motion JPEG at a smooth 30 fps, in addition to WVGA (848 x 480) and normal VGA (640 x 480). You can enjoy recording not only photos but also HD movies casually even in active outdoor situations. It is also possible to edit it or upload it on YouTube with the included software PHOTOfunSTUDIO ver. 5.0.

The image-processing LSI, Venus Engine IV, features advanced signal processing technology for rendering high-quality images. Featured in the DMC-TS10(FT10), the multi-task image-processing engine Venus Engine IV supports a super-fast response time. The shutter release time lag is as short as approx. 0.006 second. The camera’s quick response makes it easier to capture sudden, spur-of-the-moment photo opportunities together with the Sonic Speed AF (Auto Focus).

The DMC-TS10(FT10) incorporates an easy-to-see, 2.7-inch 230,000-dot Intelligent LCD for comfortable viewing while both monitoring shots and playing back the results. The Intelligent LCD function detects the light condition and automatically boosts the LCD backlighting by max. 40% when shooting outdoors in bright sunshine, and adjusts the frame rate when shooting in low-lit situations in addition to using the pixel mixed readout method to secure clarity in such situations. Detecting the lighting condition precisely and automatically controlling the brightness with a total of 11 fine steps, this function gives the display the most appropriate clarity in any situation without using extra energy. The High-angle mode makes the LCD screen extremely easy to view when the camera is held high, such as when shooting over a crowd. Plus, the AR coating suppresses reflections even under the strong sunlight.

A rich variety of scene modes make it easy to get beautiful photos in a range of photographic situations. The Beach & Surf mode is perfect for your beach activities, allowing you to use a single mode with optimized auto white balance both on the beach and in shallow water up to 3m. Baby, Pet and Sports modes take advantage of the Intelligent ISO Control as previously described, to let you get great results even if the subjects have unexpected motion. Furthermore, you can record the name and birthday of your children or pet and embed the information of the name and at which age in year and month the photo was taken on the photo, and choose to print either or both of them on the photo. Photo Frame mode lets the user put attractive borders around the photo. When printed, the photos look like postcards in picture frames.

The functions and settings used most often, such as O.I.S., consecutive shooting, auto focus point, white balance adjustment, ISO level, image size and LCD mode are quickly and easily accessed via the Quick Setting function. There’s no need to open menus to adjust them.The user can select from among several pretty icons for the camera to use for indicating when the subject is in focus. With the My Scene setting, the user can assign a specific Scene Modes to that setting, and switch instantly to the mode when desired.

Using the Macro Zoom function, the user can pull subjects even closer than the closest point possible with the wide-angle setting by using 3x digital zoom, and capture dramatic close-ups.
In addition to the conventional SD/SDHC Memory Card, the DMC-TS10(FT10) accepts next-generation SD format SDXC (SD eXtended Capacity), that features high potential in both capacity and data transfer speed. There is no need of worry about scratching if the included silicone jacket is worn.
