The DMC-TS5(FT5) 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. Passing the Leica's stringent standards, this lens delivers exceptional optical performance to the edges.
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.
The Intelligent Zoom is an extensive zoom function using digital zoom with minimum deterioration of image quality thanks to the Intelligent Resolution technology. The 4.6x optical can virtually extend to 9.3x equivalent.
The POWER O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) suppresses the low-frequency vibration hand-shake component, which is physically generated when pressing the shutter button or when shooting at night with a slow shutter speed.
The new 16.1-megapixel High Sensitivity MOS sensor realizes both high quality image recording and high speed signal processing. In addition, the Wavelet NR (Noise Reduction) system*1 in the Venus Engine enables deliberate noise reduction process without missing low-frequency noise by enlarging its detection area by approx.64x*2. It results in the high sensitivity image recording even at ISO3200.
*1 Works in high sensitivity image recording at ISO 800 or higher.
*2 Panasonic comparison with DMC-ZS20(TZ30).
The DMC-TS5(FT5)'s Venus Engine processes large amount of progressive full HD data at high speed. At the same time, the multi-task image-processing engine, the Venus Engine realizes a super-fast response time.
The newly developed MOS sensor lets the DMC-TS5(FT5) shoot 10 fps* in 16.1-megapixel full resolution with mechanical shutter and 5 fps with continuous AF. You can take a series of shots, then choose the ones you like the best and delete the rest.
* Max. 7 images.
Even higher-speed burst shooting is possible when the electronic shutter is used.
The Intelligent Burst Shooting in the iA Mode automatically sets the frame rate of burst shooting according to the subject's movement.
*1 The number of recordable images depends on the memory card size and battery life.
*2 The focus, exposure and white balance are fixed with the first picture for the burst.
*3 The range that can be recorded will become smaller.
With the industry’s first Creative Panorama, 12 filter effects make panorama images more impressive, and expand your expressive abilities.
The Creative Control (in the recording mode) and the Creative Retouch (in the playback mode) give you the expressive power to turn ordinary situations into highly special scenes.
The DMC-TS5(FT5) boasts the quick start-up time. Together with the Light Speed AF, the DMC-TS5(FT5) never misses the most fleeting shooting opportunities.
The Light Speed AF helps to catch even the most fleeting photo opportunities. You can quickly focus on moving subjects, such as when you're shooting sports scenes or animals.
