The Everyday Sling might just be the perfect pack for not carrying too much gear, combining comfort with Peak Design's signature modern style.
Panasonic has announced its Lumix DC-TS7 (FT7 outside of North America) which is the first waterproof/rugged compact to have an electronic viewfinder. The viewfinder is 0.2" in size and has an resolution equivalent to 1.17 million dots and a magnification of 0.45x equivalent. Obviously, you won't be able to use the EVF if you have a scuba mask on, but for shooting in bright light on land it could come in handy. There's also a 3" non-touch LCD available for composing and reviewing your photos.
The TS7 has a 20.4MP, 1/2.3" BSI CMOS sensor and an F3.3-5.9, 28-128mm equiv. lens. It's able to go 31m/102ft underwater, can take a fall from 2m/6.6ft and can withstand 100kg / 220lb of crushing force. It's also freezeproof to -10C / +14F.
You'll find a 49-point contrast-detect AF system on the TS7, and Panasonic claims that it can track a moving subject at 5 fps. The camera can capture UHD 4K video at 24p and 30p as well as 1080/60p. There's a 120 fps mode, but only at 720p resolution. Naturally, the TS7 supports Panasonic's 4K Photo feature, which allows for 'Post Focus' and 8MP still extraction. Wi-Fi (but not Bluetooth) is built in, and battery life is CIPA-rated at 300 shots per charge.
The TS7 will be available this summer for $449/£399. Available colors include blue, orange and black.
Featuring Waterproof, Rugged Design Camera for Outdoor Imaging
Newark, NJ (May 11, 2018) - Panasonic is pleased to introduce the 20.4-megapixel LUMIX TS7, the rugged new LUMIX TS Series camera geared exclusively for outdoor use. This tough, lightweight camera is waterproof to 102ft., dustproof, shockproof to 6.6ft., freeze proof to 14 degrees F and pressure resistant to 220lbf for exceptional imaging in virtually any and all locations and conditions.
The LUMIX TS7 features a 28mm wide angle 4.6x optical zoom lens (35mm equivalent: 28-128mm) and includes a new 0.2-in, 1,170K-dot equivalent LVF (Live View Finder) to easily capture subjects even under strong sunlight or with backlighting. A 3.0-in rear LCD monitor delivers highest-in-class 1,040K-dot resolution for approximately 100% field of view.
For video, the LUMIX TS7 records smooth, high-resolution QFHD 4K video in 3840x2160 at 30p/ 24p in MP4. Taking full advantage of 4K technology, outdoor photographers will enjoy 4K PHOTO to capture perfect moments at 30 fps and save 8-megapixel, high-resolution photos. The LUMIX TS7 also includes the LUMIX Post Focus feature, which enables users to modify focus after capturing the image.
A newly integrated 20.4-megapixel High Sensitivity MOS sensor and the camera's advanced imaging engine enables high-speed, high-sensitivity image recording to generate high-speed burst shooting at 10 fps* in high picture quality. The LUMIX TS7 also provides Light Speed AF to capture the most fleeting shooting opportunities, ideal for outdoor adventures like diving, snorkeling, surfing, climbing, skiing and snowboarding.
The LUMIX TS7 ensures flexible shooting with built-in Wi-Fi® connectivity for fast, easy image sharing, also integrating a variety of special effects’ options — Creative Control, Creative Panorama, Time Lapse Shot and High-Speed Video —adding creativity and fun to outdoor imaging. Beginning photographers will like the popular LUMIX Shooting Assist function iA (Intelligent Auto) mode to help shoot sharp, memorable photos and video. Plus, the camera's built-in LED Photo Light function illuminates the subject to help compose the shot even if the camera function is not activated.
Other new LUMIX TS7 features include:
1. Airtight, all-seasons design
Thanks to a minimum aperture area, rubber padding and reinforced glass inside the camera, the LUMIX TS7 features an airtight body to withstand water immersion, dust and sand. A reinforced body case performs flawlessly at depths up to 102 ft with water pressure resistance up to 220lbf. The durable TS7 can absorb drops to hard surfaces from up to 6.6ft in accordance with the "MIL-STD 810F Method 516.5-Shock" test standard. And in cold weather, all components including the lens unit can endure temperatures up to 14 degrees F. Specifically designed for active outdoor imaging, the LUMIX TS7 includes a compass and altimeter, all of which makes the all-seasons LUMIX TS7 the perfect camera for photos and video when fishing and camping in the spring; diving, snorkeling and surfing in summer; traversing mountains in autumn; and skiing and snowshoeing in winter.
2. New LVF (Live View Finder) and high-resolution rear monitor
The LUMIX TS7 integrates a new 0.2-inch, 1,170K-dot equivalent LVF (Live View Finder) to make it easier to capture subjects under strong sunlight or in backlighting and reduce power consumption in harsh conditions. Both the sensor and LVF are in a 4:3 aspect ratio, and the 3.0-in tempered-glass rear LCD monitor in a 3:2 aspect ratio, delivers highest-in-class 1,040K-dot resolution for an approximately 100% field of view. Image output between the LVF and the rear monitor is instantly switched with a dedicated button.
3. 4K imaging with 4K video and 4K PHOTO
The LUMIX TS7 records smooth, high-resolution QFHD 4K videos in 3840x2160 at 30p or 24p in MP4* in addition to Full-HD 1,920 x 1,080 60p videos in MP4 (MPEG-4 / H.264) format with practical full-time AF.
With 4K video and 4K PHOTO, photographers can choose and extract single images from 30 fps video frames to save as 8-megapixel equivalent resolution photos. Three exclusive LUMIX functions integrated into the TS7 make it easy; 4K Burst Shooting, 4K Burst (Start/Stop) and 4K Pre-burst. 4K Burst Shooting provides consecutive shooting at 30 fps,** which can be used like photo burst shooting. The LUMIX TS7 includes the LUMIX Post Focus function to select in-focus areas after shooting — a helpful feature in situations like macro shooting where severe focusing is required, or for changing expression by changing the subject in focus.
The camera's 4.6x optical zoom with POWER O.I.S. is also available in video recording to suppress hand shake, and an Auto Wind Cut function blocks most of the noise created by background wind. High Speed Video feature enables recording in HD (1280x720) at 120 fps/100 fps, and Time Lapse /Stop Motion Animation functions are also available.
4. 20.4-megapixel High Sensitivity MOS Sensor
The 20.4-megapixel LUMIX TS7 integrates a High Sensitivity MOS sensor to deliver highest-in-class resolution. And its high-speed response achieves burst shooting at 10 fps* in full resolution with a mechanical shutter, 5 fps with continuous AF. Auto focusing is quick and accurate with its Light Speed AF. The LUMIX TS7 incorporates a high-quality 28mm wide-angle LUMIX lens with a 4.6x optical zoom (35mm equivalent: 28-128mm) in folded optics. Thanks to LUMIX Intelligent Resolution technology, the Intelligent Zoom is included in the LUMIX TS7, which virtually extends the zoom ratio to 9.1x equivalent, maintaining picture quality even when combined with the digital zoom.
• Wi-Fi 2.4GHz (IEEE802.11b/g/n) Connectivity
The LUMIX TS7 integrates Wi-Fi® connectivity for flexible shooting and instant image sharing with easy operation. Once the camera is connected to a smartphone or tablet installed with Panasonic Image App for iOS/Android, users can shoot, browse and share images remotely. GPS geotag can also be added on the photos after shooting.
• AC/USB Charging
The camera’s rechargeable battery can be charged via AC or USB.
• Creative Control
The LUMIX TS7 is equipped with Creative Controls for 22 filter effects – Expressive, Retro, Old Days, High Key, Low Key, Sepia, Monochrome, Dynamic Monochrome, Rough Monochrome, Silky Monochrome, Impressive Art, High Dynamic, Cross Process, Toy Effect, Toy Pop, Bleach Bypass, Miniature Effect, Soft Focus, Fantasy, Star Filter, One Point Color and Sunshine.
