The Panasonic Lumix TS7 is the newest waterproof and shockproof compact camera in the Lumix lineup and it is all about being in water, sand or snow, all with no questions asked. Cell phones cameras never actually killed the point and shoot camera, they just made them tougher.
Not everything in photography is like that. With a tough camera, you don’t have to worry about fogging up the inner lens elements in the winter, or committing a dreaded “death-drop” with your expensive DSLR gear. Bringing this camera just about anywhere is not a worry so you can always get a shot of your adventures.
