Panasonic Lumix TS5 waterproof camera
Shooting action shots requires you to be, well, near action. Whether it’s under the sea, during a storm or in a dangerous location, the Panasonic Lumix TS5 ($399) can capture those memories.
This waterproof camera is submersible to 43 feet, and the built-in flash illuminates your shots while you’re in the deep. The TS5 also records in HD video. A time-lapse setting lets you capture movement at 10 frames per second. There is also an app that enables you to use your smartphone as a viewfinder and trigger the Luxmix if you need to secure it in a precarious location (i.e., the top of the mast or on the bow during a storm).
When you finish shooting, a push of a button will provide Wi-Fi connectivity, enabling you to upload your work directly to the included (standard) 1 GB of storage on the cloud.
