Features

The rugged, waterproof LUMIX TS25 compact adventure camera delivers go-anywhere flexibility with state-of-the-art imaging performance. The LUMIX TS25 is the ultimate tough camera, so no matter where you find yourself... diving with sea life, hanging from a mountain, or exploring the winding alleys of a foreign market... you will take the best shot possible without worrying about your camera. Waterproof to 23 feet, shockproof from 5 feet, and freezeproof from 14 degrees Fahrenheit, the LUMIX TS25 is a tough camera for your active lifestyle.

Instant Creativity With Built-In Creative Effects

Creative Control/Creative Retouch

Panasonic is ready to take the ordinary and make it extraordinary by fueling your creativity with the Creative Control feature (in the recording mode) and the Creative Retouch feature (in the playback mode). These features take simple or complicated scenes and make them easy to capture in a great photo. Simply set the camera to match your scene and it uses sophisticated presets to optimize the camera settings resulting in photos you'll be proud of.

Creative Panorama

Panasonic has developed the industry's first Creative Panorama functions. Discover 12 filter effects that will take your panorama images to the next level with creative and dramatic results.

Advanced Underwater Mode

The Red Color Reproduction of Advanced Underwater Mode compensates for the color red that is easily lost in underwater photography. This creates underwater pictures that look more natural. Other modes that deliver incredible results are Sports, Snow, and Beach & Snorkeling. They can all be selected from the menu quickly and easily..

iA (Intelligent Auto) Mode

In the iA (Intelligent Auto) Mode, the camera does all the work, leaving you free to compose your shot and capture the moment. Simply aim, press, and shoot. The detection and correction functions go to work to give you beautiful photos and videos*.

* The applicable iA Mode functions vary with photos and videos.

Time Lapse Shot

Have you ever wanted to capture a flower blooming, or clouds floating across the sky? The Time Lapse Shot feature on the DMC-TS25 gives you the creative control to set the start time, interval for taking the images, and the number of pictures to shoot. Once that is set, the camera will automatically record the images without you.

Capture Stills or HD Video In and Out of the Water

25mm Ultra Wide-Angle Lens

The DMC-TS25 features a 25mm wide-angle lens* with 4x
optical zoom (35mm equivalent: 25-100mm). The 25mm ultra wide-angle lens has about twice the shooting area as a standard 35mm lens. This enhances most shooting situations, like photographing a group of people at an indoor party or shooting a large structure or sweeping landscape while traveling.

* Converted to standard 35mm camera equivalent, at the wide-end.

8x Intelligent Zoom

If the 4x optical zoom is not long enough for your photographic journey, the Intelligent Zoom uses digital zoom technology with minimum deterioration of image quality thanks to the Intelligent Resolution technology. The 4x optical zoom virtually extends to an 8x zoom equivalent.

Motion Picture Button

Video recording can be easily started with the press of the Motion Picture Button making it convenient for switching between photo and video shooting instantly.

MP4 HD Recording

If you want to edit your videos on a computer or upload them to a website, the DMC-TS25 can record HD motion images (1,280 x 720 pixels) in MP4 format.

MEGA O.I.S. with Active Mode

The Active Mode effectively suppresses blur in video recordings especially at wide-angle settings while walking or playing with children or moving subjects.

MEGA O.I.S.

The MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) suppresses vibration and hand-shake that happens when you press the shutter button or when shooting at night with a slow shutter speed. Even slight hand-shake movement is accurately detected by a sampling frequency of 4,000 times per second, and compensated for to produce sharp, clear images..

Night Scenes


Dimly Lit Scenes


Macro Shots


Torch Light

The DMC-TS25 features a torch light that helps records beautiful videos even in dusky underwater environments or at a nighttime camp. You can even turn on the light to illuminate a subject when the camera function is not activated.

2.7-inch Intelligent LCD

The DMC-TS25's 2.7-inch LCD is a 230K-dot Intelligent LCD. LUMIX's acclaimed Intelligent LCD technology automatically adjusts the brightness in 11 step increments according to your shooting conditions. In addition, the AR (anti-reflective) coating LCD minimizes glare and provides clear images for high visibility even in brightness outdoors.

Travel Confidently With Go Anywhere Shock and Waterproof Toughness

A Casual Stylish Rugged Design

Featuring a flat, slim profile made possible by using folded optics for the 4x optical zoom* lens unit, the DMC-TS25 is incredibly tough. The TS25 delivers breathtaking color and detail in photos and videos. Enjoy easy, casual shooting with style both in town and during your outdoor adventures. The DMC-TS25 is optimal for both.

* 35mm camera equivalent: 25-100mm

Travel With Confidence

The durable TS25 is waterproof, shockproof, dustproof and freezeproof empowering you to take this camera on all of your photographic journeys. From fishing or camping in the springtime, diving, snorkeling, surfing in the summer, mountain climbing in autumn, or skiing and snowboarding in winter, the DMC-TS25 is an all-year-round camera that records stunning memories in beautiful photos and videos.

The DMC-TS25 is shockproof from a height of 5ft in accordance with the "MIL-STD 810F Method 516.5-Shock" test standard. Shoot actively while moving around with the camera in one hand worry-free.

The DMC-TS25 is dustproof, equivalent to the "IP6X" standard. While hiking or playing sports, fine dust particles can enter cameras through gaps in the camera body and cause malfunctions. No worries with the DMC-TS25, it can be used in these activities and more without any problems.

Looking to shoot in the cold? The DMC-TS25 is freezeproof to 14 degrees Fahrenheit so get out and shoot your favorite winter activities like skiing, snowboarding or skating.

DMC-TS25 is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great camera Very easy to use, is tough just like advertised and good quality underwater shots!
Date published: 2015-03-23
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very bad underwater camera I used the camera many, many times before taking it underwater and LOVED the picture quality. No regrets purchasing this camera until I took it underwater for the FIRST time. Yes, the door was closed, there was absolutely NO water leakage, it was completely dry. But somehow water leaked into the camera and I have not had good quality pictures since then, all fuzzy. This camera was underwater for a very short period of time and was only underwater about 2 feet deep. DO NOT purchase this camera if you want something that goes in the water because somehow, water will get in no matter what!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wanted a camera I could bring along on hiking/camping trips year round. This one fits the bill! It is rugged and reliable, and takes great pictures and videos! I have carried and used it while camping in the Adirandacks in the winter, cruies and snorkelling in the caribbean, and numerous weekend hiking and camping outings throughout the year. Very pleased with the camera!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Affordable camera Overall a good camera for underwater activities. The only thing is that when I use it after the water it has to completely dry first to get a clean HD picture with no blurs on the lens.
Date published: 2014-11-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for vacation pics! This little camera was wonderful on vacation! Great picture quality, even underwater! We took lots of pics in the pool and they turned out great. Nice and small, easy to slip into a pocket.
Date published: 2014-11-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little camera! Well worth it! We purchased this camera to take to the beach and shallow water photos. We did not use this in a dive setting. Awesome quality underwater pictures. Love this little camera! You won't be disappointed. One small, tiny con...every time you take the battery out and charge it, once you replace it and turn the camera back on there is a warning about the underwater usage. Make sure you turn the camera on and confirm the warning as soon as you put the battery back in, so that you don't miss a shot by waiting to turn it on to use it and then you have to mess with that dang warning. Only con we have!!

  • How long should my battery last?
    CIPA figures which range from 300-400 photos (depending on the camera model). CIPA measurement methods use a very controlled method to measure battery life. The procedure takes a specific number of shots at a fixed interval, with a fixed ratio of flash photos. While this method provides a standardized measurement that can be used to compare two cameras, it's far from how the camera is actually used. Life expectancy can be affected by any of the following: If the flash is used, the total number of photos can decrease by 30-40% If the camera has GPS, you can expect up to a 50% reduction in battery life. If the customer has no immediate need for GPS disable the feature in the camera's menu options. While the battery saver feature will turn the LCD panel off after a preset time (and place the camera into sleep mode) the camera still draws some power from the battery. We suggestion, turn the camera after each shot. At social gatherings, try and minimize passing the camera around the table to have others look at the photos. The LCD panel consumes ~30% of the total power.

  • Why do I have spots on some of my photos?

  • What size SD Card can I use in my camera?
    Cameras with a manufacturing date of 2006 or before can only use Standard SD Cards (2GB Max). Models manufactured from 2007 to 2009 can only use Standard SD Cards and SDHC Cards (32GB Max). Cameras manufactured 2010 and later are also compatible to the SDXC memory card format. While your camera?s owner?s manual may state a maximum size, that size was the largest that was available when your camera was manufactured. Any currently available SDXC card, which will eventually increase to maximum of 2 TB is compatible. As the maximum size increases, to 2 TB, we do not anticipate any need for firmware updates.

  • Why am I unable to view the photos on my camera after I have deleted some files from the SD card using the computer?
    It is not recommended that you delete or modify any photos on your SD memory card using your PC if you plan to move them back to the camera. Doing so can damage the file allocation table and your camera will not be able to read the files. You should immediately copy the remaining photos from your SD card to your PC. After doing so, using your camera, reformat the SD card.
