TIPA WORLD AWARDS 2024

BEST RUGGED COMPACT CAMERA

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT5 (DMC-TS5)

Waterproof to a depth of 13 metres (43 feet), shockproof from a height of 2 metres (6.6 feet), 100kg (220 lbs) of pressure resistance and freeze-proof to -10C (14F), the 16.1MP Panasonic FT5 is an excellent example of today?s breed of outdoor and rugged compacts. Video can be recorded in Full HD (1920 x 1080, AVCHD) with audio capture utilizing Dolby Digital. The Leica DC VARIO-ELMAR lens (28-128mm equivalent) delivers high quality previews to the 3-inch LCD. Keeping with the “connectivity” trend, the camera has “one touch easy” connection to WiFi that allows for remote capture using the ‘Panasonic Image App’. This also allows for tagging images using GPS functionality.
