Panasonic’s latest compact camera, the Lumix DC-FT7 (also know as the DC-TS7), is a new “rugged” camera. That is, it has a number of tough credentials, which make it ideal for shooting in a wide variety of different conditions.
It is waterproof down to 31 metres (making it the class leading product), shockproof from a height of 2 metres, freeze proof down to -10 degrees and crush proof up to 100kg. It also has a 20.4 megapixel Live MOS sensor, plus a 4.6x optical zoom lens, with an equivalent focal length range of 28-128mm.
Panasonic has added an electronic viewfinder to the Lumix DC-FT7, in a difference from its predecessor, the FT5. This 0.2-inch, 1170k-dot device is there for such times when shooting in bright sunlight might prevent you from using the 3.0-inch, 1,040k-dot screen.
Other features of the FT7 include wi-fi connectivity, 4K Video and 4K Photo modes, digital filters, geo-tagging (via your smart device), plus a raft of useful “adventure” type features such as a compass, altimeter and a torchlight function.
We joined Panasonic at the launch of the FT7, using it in a number of ideal conditions for testing the camera. At that time, the camera was a pre-production model. We have now had the opportunity to use a full production version of the Panasonic Lumix DC-FT7 camera, and have updated this review accordingly.
