New Lumix FT7: The Ultimate Rugged Camera for you Outdoor Adventures

The Panasonic Lumix FT7 is a new, tough, compact camera geared towards lovers of outdoor adventures, giving you the chance to capture those moments your normal device can’t handle.

The Lumix FT7 is waterproof (up to 31m / 102ft), shockproof (to 2m/6.6ft), freezeproof (to -10°C), dustproof and pressure resistant (to 100kg/220lbf) making it the perfect rugged companion for all your extreme experiences.

With a 20.4-megapixel high-sensitivity sensor which is joined by a 28mm wide-angle 4.6x (28-128mm equivalent) optical zoom lens, the FT7 also features Power O.I.S (Optical Image Stabilisation) to help keep your shots steady even during rocky activities.

New for the FT7 is a 0.2-inch 1,170k-dot equivalent Live View Finder for composing your images when screen use is impractical. Use the LVF to compose your shots in strong sunlight, with the added bonus of saving and extending battery life in harsh conditions – such as the cold.
