It is also shockproof droppable from a height up to 2.0m/6.6ft, freezeproof to temperatures as low as -10˚C/14˚F, and comprehends pressure resistance of 100kgf/220lbf. It newly adopts an anti-fog glass to prevent from being fogged with steam. Take out the camera to fishing, camping, diving, snorkeling, surfing, climbing, skiing or snowboarding – The DMC-FT5 is an all-year-round active field player to record stunning memories.
Ultimate Tough Features for Exciting Outdoor Shooting
The FT5 is built to withstand a rugged outdoor life. Whether it's snorkelling, scuba diving, snowboarding or just adventure holidaying the FT5 includes these rugged features: 13m(43ft)Waterproof, 2m(6.6ft)Shockproof, -10℃(14°F)Freeze-proof, Dustproof, and 100kg Pressure Resistance.
Advanced Underwater Shooting Mode - Colour Correction
Underwater photography or video can show incorrect colours due to the filter effect of the water removing red light from the image. Panasonic have added an underwater shooting mode that colour corrects the image and puts back the red tones to make your shots more realistic.
Latest High Sensitivity MOS Sensor and Folded Optics 4.6x Zoom Lens
The 16.1-megapixel MOS sensor used in the FT5 Supports Full HD video, high-speed burst shooting and a 3D mode. This High-sensitivity sensor delivers excellent picture quality from the compact LEICA DC-VARIO ELMAR 28mm (equivalent) Wide-angle Lens. Also the clever folded optics design enables a 4.6x optical zoom, non-protruding lens with Anti-fog glass, to be contained within the compact body of the camera.
Power O.I.S. for More Precise Image Stabilisation
Power O.I.S. is about twice as effective as our conventional system at reducing low-frequency vibration-caused blur. It is especially useful when using slow shutter effects or shooting night scenes.
Fastest Auto Focus - "Light-speed" AF
Fast focus is a must when you don't want to miss the moment of a lifetime. None come faster in a compact camera than the lightning fast 0.1 seconds of Lumix. Borrowed from the technology used in our Lumix G system camera, the incredibly fast focus speed is due to the double speed readout from the sensor when the shutter button is half pressed.
Built in Wi-Fi with NFC for Easy Set-up and Sharing
Amazing new wireless functionality is now possible with this Lumix model. Features like: Remote Monitor and Shooting, Remote Browsing & Playback and Remote Sharing. Additional NFC (Near Field Communication) capability built in to this model utilises the latest smart communication technology. NFC compatible products can share or be ready to share data just by touching the two devices or bringing them close together.
Remote Monitoring & Control with Smartphone
Use your Smartphone to see the live image through the camera lens and then take the shot. Using the "Peer to Peer" or Wi-Fi function in the camera, the picture can be monitored externally and controlled remotely by a connected smart device. *Controlling device requires "Panasonic Image App” for iOS / Android smartphones.
Remotely Browse, Playback, Transfer or Print via DLNA and Wi-Fi compatible devices
If you have a compatible DLNA equipped smart TV or handheld device, you can browse and view your pictures directly over your wireless network. This means you no longer need to connect to the TV with the AV cable or even take out the SD card and insert it in the TV. The Wi-Fi function also allows you to transfer and back-up your pictures, and if you have a Wi-Fi printer, you can even print them wirelessly.
Remote Sharing - Social Network Site (SNS) File Upload over Cloud Network
Not only can you enjoy videos and still pictures remotely on your Smartphone*, but you can also upload the content directly to your favourite Social Network sites like YouTube and Facebook. Now it's even easier to share your movies or photos with your friends.
GPS with Photo Mapping
Ever looked at a photograph and wondered exactly where it was taken? Well with GPS tagging on all your photos you need never wonder again. Latitude and Longitude positioning are stored in the image data for each photograph. Based on a database of almost one million landmarks stored in the camera, it even works out whether the photo was taken at a famous landmark. But the best point of GPS tagging, is when you upload a photograph to a mapping website like Google Earth, the photo automatically gets pinned to its exact location.
Quad Indicator - GPS, Altimeter, Barometer & Compass with Log
Not only does the GPS function display and log your exact position, but the FT5 also adopts compass, altimeter and barometer (with indicator for depth underwater) to show and record altitude, barometric pressure and orientation data. The barometric trend log helps you forecast the climate and the altimeter log tells how high you have been.
High Resolution 3.0 Inch (7.5cm) LCD with High Brightness Mode
A high resolution (460,000 pixels) Liquid Crystal Display is offered with a 3.0 inch viewing area that works well in bright light due to the Auto Brightness sensor that automatically increases brightness by up to 40% when in sunny conditions.
10 Frames per Second High Speed Burst Shooting
High-speed burst shooting, up to 10 frames per second at full resolution, is possible. This enables you to capture high speed action with a sequence of still pictures that are sharp and defined, even when it is difficult to keep the subject in the centre of the frame. You can review the images after you have captured the action and choose the best composed shot.
Interval Shooting (Time Lapse) with Video Synthesis
With Time Lapse Shooting available, you can record subjects such as flowers coming into bloom or a dramatic sunset over a long period of time. The camera automatically starts taking pictures once the start time, the interval and number of pictures to shoot is set. There is also an option to synthesise all the still pictures together to create a time-lapse video.
Creative Panorama Shooting Mode with Filter Effects
The Ultra-wide shooting panorama mode not only allows you to capture vast landscapes in one complete picture, but in a Panasonic first, this camera also offers "Creative Panorama" mode which allows you to choose from up to 12 filter effects* that can be applied to your shot.
Multiple Scene Setting Auto Shooting Modes
Up to 18 pre-programmed scene modes can be offered (number varies depending on model) giving you the choice of a wide range of shooting scenarios. Just select the one that best describes the scene you are taking, and the camera makes the best settings automatically.
High Dynamic Range (HDR) Shooting Mode
One of the most difficult shooting conditions is when your subject has a strong backlight. Most cameras will underexpose the subject in order to show detail in the background, or over expose the background in order to show detail in the subject. Until recently, it was only possible to create a correctly exposed subject at the same time as a well exposed background, by taking at least 3 separate images with different exposure values and then combining them with photo editing software. But now, this process can be done on-board the camera by using the powerful processing power of the Lumix Venus engine. Intelligent HDR, part of Intelligent Auto mode, takes three shots at different exposure values each time you press the shutter button, and combines them to achieve the best level of equal exposure.
3D Photo Shooting Mode
3D still pictures can look amazing when viewed on the latest 3D televisions. Normally two lenses or two cameras are required to create the left and right eye image that makes up a 3D picture. However, using the clever processing of the new Venus engine and the high-speed MOS sensor, a 3D stereoscopic image can be created with just one lens. Just select "3D Photo" mode and position yourself in front of your subject (the subject must not be moving for the 3D to be effective). Next press the shutter button whilst panning the camera about 10cm to the right. The camera will shoot about 20 shots and out of those shots it will choose two images that are the correct distance apart to create a 3D image when viewed on a 3D TV.
50P FULL HD Video Mode with AVCHD Progressive
The newly developed Venus Engine FHD supports video recording at 50 frames per second in Full HD resolution (1920x1080). This offers the smoothest and most detailed video mode ever for a compact digital camera and is perfect for fast action sports recording.
Stereo Sound Recording
A built-in stereo microphone means high quality Dolby encoded stereo sound can be recorded when using movie mode.
LED Video Light with Torch Mode
The bright LED video light not only adds increased light when shooting in dark conditions but also has a handy torch mode that can be used at any time.
*Number of effects varies according to model.
Which Panasonic Rugged Digital Camera is Right for Me?

The photo quality has surprised me for such a small camera, some of the shots it has taken are stunning. So much so family members have printed them to canvas and put them up in their homes. I do a fair bit of HDR photography and this has a HDR mode but you can also Auto Bracketing 1/3 -1EV step, Max +/-1EV, 3 frames if you want to process manually later which is a real bonus. I'll let the photos speak for themselves, here are some of the better ones:
I've also attached a HDR one.

I still stand by the Lumix DMC-FT5 as a preferred watersports camera.
Would give 5 * if it charged via USB.Read more
