The Lumix DMC-FT30 is a casual yet tough camera which can handle whatever life throws at it. Built for active lifestyles, you can enjoy easy shooting in-style both in town and during outdoors adventure pursuits. With credit to the waterproof, shockproof and freezeproof protections, the DMC-FT30 is more than just a camera.
The 16.1 megapixels can capture a world of moments on its expanding 220MB built-in memory card. With 4x optical zoom and 8x intelligent zoom, you can get up close and personal with your surroundings and take down every single detail. With the Creative panorama function, it’s possible to even shoot a horizontal or vertical panoramic image with consequent shots taken by overlaying the previous picture. The Creative Control (recording mode) and the Creative Retouch (playback mode) can then give you the vision of an artist, leveraging the various filter effects.
Even when you are in action, the MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) can compensate for any blurring caused. Just a slight hand-shake movement is accurately detected by a sampling frequency of 4,000 times per second. The result is a sharp, clear image which is witness to your venturing abilities.
MP4 HD video recording
Record videos in high definition, 1280 x 720p MP4 format with the press of an independent motion picture button. Shot in 25 fps, the Motion Picture Recording offers a true-to-life recording of your experiences. Better still, the button is conveniently located on the frame for you to switch between photo and video shooting instantly.
Even in underwater environments or at night, the torch light supports the recordings of beautiful videos. The functionality also has the possibility to only turn the light on, to light up the subject while the camera function is not activated.
The landscape or specific subjects can be recorded over a time period too. The Time Lapse Shot functionality means that you can leave the camera to record a stationary observation. A series of sequent images can then be combined in a camera to produce a time lapse video.
Built to last
The DMC-FT30 has been designed to withstand an action-packed lifestyle. Capable of diving down in to 8 meters of water, the compact camera is perfect for snapping-up the underwater scenery. Better still, it is dustproof, Shockproof up to 1.5 metres and Freezeproof down to -10 °C, so you can never venture too far.
Creating stunning under water shots, the Red Colour Reproduction of Advanced Underwater Mode compensates for the red colour which is too easily lost. Sports, Snow and Beach & Surf Mode can also be selected easily from the menu so you can get the mode which is just right for your actions.

Unpackaged weight of the product
- Wi-Fi enabled
- Zoom (digital)
Enlarges video captured by the optical zoom and makes it seem even closer. This involves zooming in on an existing image, so it gives slightly less detailed results than an equivalent optical zoom
- Zoom (optical)
Allows you to zoom the image closer to the subject. Optical zooms feature physically moving lens components, so it maintains the image quality as you zoom in. Digitial zooms essentially crop an existing image, so may lose image quality as they zoom in
