Panasonic has tossed the replacement for its aging TS2 digital camera with a rugged design onto the market. The new camera is called the TS3 and is a rugged digital camera that can survive use outdoors. The camera is waterproof for 40-feet, can survive drops from 6.6-feet, and is freeze proof to -10C. The cam is probably more rugged than you are
The cam has a 3D photo mode that will take 20 images at one time and then overlay the best two shots for 3D viewing on the Panasonic 3D TVs. It's not clear if those 3D photos are viewable on anything other than a Panasonic TV. The camera has a 12.1MP sensor and can record 1080p HD video as well.
The rear of the camera has a 2.7-inch LCD with 230K dot resolution and an anti-reflective coating. Other features include GPS and a wealth of automatic modes and settings. The GPS sensor can tag images with details like the city they were shot in and can offer the name of landmarks that images include if the landmark is in the database. The camera will ship in March at an undisclosed price.
