Hello all :-) New to your fine forum and have a question. I do environmental work and need a digital cam, so I purchased one. I have a panasonic DMC- TS5 with the built in compass (to show aspect), GPS, altimeter, as well as the time and date shown. Is there any way to have this info "stamped" on my pics? Im still trying to figure this little piece of technology out. The above info is shown when I take the pic and view it on the camera, but when I download to my PC the info is not on the...

I need a weatherproof, dirtproof camera that takes excellent shots (yeah, a pipe dream, I know) especially excellent action shots. I am trying to decide between the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS5, Pentax WG-3, and Olympus Tough TG-2. Does anyone have any experience with any of these cameras in regards to picture quality, action/motion shots, etc.? Or have a different camera to recommend? I don't really need to take the camera underwater, but it will be in situations where it will get wet and dirty,...

Hi. I just bought the FT5, mainly for photos/video when snorkelling. The trouble is I cant seem to get the video off the camera! In iPhoto I can import the video but its converting the AVCHD video to a MOV & the quality is terrible. I can also navigate the memory card hidden folders & directly copy the MTS file to my desktop, but the trouble here is audio is being lost when I want to edit the video with Adobe Premiere. In iMovie i can attempt to import the video but the videos show up as grey...

I have been looking for a battery charger for my ZS30 batteries and found a TS5 battery charger on Ebay for $14.95.    Since the TS5 camera uses the same BCM13 battery as my ZS30 wouldn't this TS5 charger be OK for my batteries?  The ZS30 battery charger on Ebay is $80.00. --Chuck Mason

Going to Disneyworld in July with a family of 5 (kids are 8-13).  We've been there previously and I have taken a DSLR in the past.  Though I got some great photos, it was a pain to carry around (literally) and I was always worried about it.  There was never one lens that suited most situations, and I'd really like to avoid lugging around a lot of weight/bulk. With that in mind, I'm looking for recommendations for a camera to take to Disneyworld that will meet most of my desires: COMPACT -...

I have a Panasonic TS3.  Some videos I have shot for Youtube have included Polar Bear and Penguin swims from within the water.  The TS3 has a CCD, and even though I can set it to 1280 X 720 60 fps the manual says that the CCD is actually taking 30 fps. I think that the new TS5 CMOS sensor is supposed to be capable of doing a real 60 fps. Do you think this will capture the moving people more sharply when it is uploaded to Youtube?  This is the kind of video that some participants may like to...

I have FT3 and when I set it to AVCHD the camera store the videos in a separate folder with their own numbering system and that would have messed up my cataloging system so I just set it to Motion JPEG and the videos were in the picture folder with apropriate numbering but the resolution was limited to 720p luckily my laptop can only handle 720p and no 1080p so it was fine but I will update to a more capable laptop later this year and might update my camera to FT5 as well, but only if the...

I wanted to share my recent experience with Panasonic warranty service that I found shocking. I hope someone might find this useful. I'm huge fan of brand's product (phones, tv, audio, kitchen ware, etc), for decades of zero problems level. Recently I bought water-resistant dust-proof camera for underwater (pictures, video, happy family vacation). There was no active use elsewhere, but "rugged" Panasonic DMC-FT4 leaked on the first snorkeling in salt water (Red Sea, Sharm...
