Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS3 / Lumix DMC-FT3 announcement clippings

With the enhanced toughness, the DMC-TS3(FT3) is waterproof to a depth of 12m and dustproof equivalent to the "IPX8" and "IPX6" standard. Thanks to rubber padding and reinforced glass, the camera features an airtight body protected against water immersion, dust and sand. Previously, there were two separate terminal covers for battery/memory card and for connection cables but these are relocated at one part covered by a single door. With the minimum apertural area, the camera boasts even higher tightness of sealing to withstand pressure in underwater as deep as 12m.

The DMC-TS3(FT3) is drop proof from a height up to 2.0m in accordance with the "MIL-STD 810F Method516.5-Shock" test standard. In addition to reinforcing the exterior with shock-resistant material, the camera 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 camera freezeproof.
