Product information

Not all photographers' needs are the same, which is why Panasonic have engineered this rugged point-and-shoot for the more intrepid snappers out there. The DMC-FT5 combines hard-wearing metal construction, water, shock, freeze and dustproofing, with built-in GPS and NFC so you can take your photography to the limit, wherever you are.

Key benefits:

  • The DMC-FT5 is waterproof to depth of 13m/43ft and dustproof equivalent to IPX8 and IP6X standards. It ‘s also shockproof from a height up to 2.0m/6.6ft, freezeproof to as low as -10˚C/14˚F, and tolerates pressures up to 100kgf/220lbf.
  • This camera features anti-fog glass to keep condensation from spoiling your pictures. Take it fishing, camping, diving, snorkelling, surfing, climbing, skiing or snowboarding with confidence.
  • Record high-resolution Full HD 1080p videos with stunning smoothness at 50p in AVCHD Progressive and 25p in MP4. High-quality Dolby Digital sound is also present along with a stereo microphone with zoom noise reduction.
  • With time lapse shot, just set the interval and the number of pictures to shoot and the camera will automatically capture images that can be combined to produce a stunning time lapse video.
  • Wi-Fi connectivity and NFC technology help you to stay connected. NFC lets you connect the camera with a smartphone or tablet by just placing them near each other. The Panasonic Image App streamlines everything and helps to make remote shooting, uploading, and Instant Transfer seamless. Transferring data to a computer is available via your home network and Wi-Fi Direct allows direct playback of images on DLNA-compliant TVs.
  • The GPS complies with GLONASS for greater accuracy. Geotag and track landmarks wherever you go and let the camera automatically sort things for quick reach later on. Tracking on Google Earth is also possible.
  • The integrated barometer and altimeter will keep you up-to-date on barometric pressure underwater and your altitude on dry land. You can even use this data to predict the weather in your area. Along with the built-in compass you’ll always be on the right track.
  • The 16.1-megapixel MOS sensor performs in all settings. Noise reduction in the Venus Engine processor makes images sharper in low light. Advanced Underwater Mode with Red Colour Reproduction even compensates for detail lost during underwater shooting.
  • Includes battery pack, adapter, USB cable, hand strap and software CD.
