Completely enclosed inside the body of the TS10 is Panasonic's 4x optical zoom lens that packs in 11 elements in 10 groups. It features a 35mm equivalent 35-140mm that is supported by the Mega O.I.S.

The flash operates in On, Off, Auto and Slow-Sync with available Red-Eye Reduction options that allow you to find a setting for just about any situation.

Controls on the back: On top you will find the zoom controls,which also allow you to enter the index mode or zoom in playback mode. The 4-way controller in Record mode toggles the flash mode when pressed 'Right.' When pressed 'Up' it adjusts exposure compensation, 'Left' to activate the Self-timer and press 'Down' to enable Marco focus mode. In Playback mode the 4-way selector is used to select images and in both record and play is used to navigate the menu screens. The MENU/Set button calls up and dismisses the menu system as well as accepts menu selections. The DISPLAY button toggles the amount of overlay information shown on the LCD. The Q.MENU button gives you access to the shortcut menu in record mode, and acts as the image delete option in playback mode.

Hidden behind a waterproof trap door, the I/O ports allow you to connect the camera to a computer or TV via the USB multi-port. There is also a DC-in slot for external power.

Since the TS10 only includes 40MB of internal memory, it stores most of its pictures and videos on SD/SDHC and the new SDXC memory cards. These cards allow you to store 100's or even 1000's of pictures on a card. The camera is shown here with a 16GB ADATA SDHC Class 6 card. This card also features the speed that you need to capture excellent HD videos.





panasonic_ts10_battery.jpg
Powering the TS10 is a 3.7V, 695mAh rechargeable Li-Ion battery. Panasonic claims that this battery is able to capture up to 300 images on a single charge. Also included with the camera is a quick charger that allows you to quickly recharge your battery. If you plan on long days or long trips for shooting, you will want to have a second battery as a backup.
