LEICA DC Lens with Folded Optics TechnologyThe DMC-TS3(FT3) features a high-quality LEICA DC VARIO-ELMAR 28mm wide-angle lens* with a 4.6x optical zoom (35mm camera equivalent: 28-128mm). The folded optics of shaft guide method is adopted to secure the toughness of the lens unit. This lens unit comprises 10 elements and a prism unit in 8 groups, including an ED lens and 5 aspherical lenses with 6 aspherical surfaces passing the Leica's stringent standards to deliver exceptional optical performance to the edges.
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 of the camera with shock-resistant material, the DMC-TS3(FT3) 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 DMC-TS3(FT3) freezeproof.
* Converted to standard 35mm camera equivalent, at the maximum wide position.
28mm Wide-angle LensThe 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 maximum wide position.
4.6x Optical Zoom / 6x Intelligent Zoom / 9.1x Extra Optical ZoomThe DMC-TS3(FT3) features a 4.6x optical zoom lens (35mm camera equivalent: 28-128mm). This gives you highly natural expressions from people and animals that you can't get close to. The 4.6x optical zoom can be increased its power to 6x equivalent with the Intelligent Zoom function. Furthermore, the Extra Optical Zoom function that extends zoom power to 9.1x* by using the center part of the large CCD brings subjects even closer.
* At 3-megapixel resolution or less.
Newly Developed 12.1-megapixel Hi-speed CCDThe newly developed 12.1-megapixel CCD with 2-channel signal output structure boasts higher signal transfer speed for the operations that require high performance and speed such as 1,920 x 1,080 full HD movie recording and high speed continuous shooting. The image quality is also improved thanks to the higher sensitivity which is made possible by highly efficient light condensation adoption larger on-chip micro lenses.
Sonic Speed AFThe Sonic Speed AF system includes numerous re-engineering enhancements, including a higher-speed actuator, optimized algorithms and parallel software processing. The result is fast and accurate AF performance.
In addition, the DMC-TS3(FT3) features dramatically speedier focusing that is 28% faster than our previous model.* You can quickly focus on moving subjects, such as when you're shooting sports scenes.
Venus Engine FHDThe Venus Engine FHD is incorporated that features exceptionally advanced signal processing capabilities. By separating chromatic noise from luminance noise and applying the optimal noise reduction to each, you can capture clear and beautiful images even when shooting at high ISO sensitivity levels. The Venus Engine FHD also provides precisely selective noise reduction to the chromatic noise without affecting the border of colors which is judged from the brightness level of a pixel.
Linking smoothly with the new Hi-Speed CCD sensor, the Venus Engine FHD processes a large amount of signals at high speed, making it possible to record 1,920 x 1,080 full HD movie recording and high resolution consecutive shots at 3.7 fps in 12.1-megapixel full resolution and max.10 fps at 3-megapixel recording.
Battery Life Approx. 310 Shots on a Single Battery ChargeThe energy-saving Venus Engine FHD image processing engine and the efficient, rechargeable lithium-ion battery work together to extend the shooting time of the DMC-TS3(FT3). This lets users take approx. 310 shots on a single battery charge*.
* Based on the CIPA standard.
1920 x 1080 Full HD Movie in AVCHD FormatAccording to the rise of movie recording popularity, digital cameras are now more compatible with it.
