Panasonic Lumix FT7 Review


On paper, the Panasonic Lumix DC-FT7 is the probably just about the best underwater/tough model you can buy right now. It has all the specs you’d expect from a camera like this, particularly the best underwater credentials on the market, as well as a...

Panasonic Lumix FT7


The Panasonic Lumix FT7 is the first tough compact to feature an electronic viewfinder and inherits useful features from mirrorless models such as 4K Photo

Features a built-in electronic viewfinder ; Waterproof to 31m (102ft) ; Introduces 4K Photo Modes ; Supports USB charging

Doesn't shoot in the RAW format ; Small 1/2.3-inch size sensor ; Zoom operation is slow ; Buttons are fairly small

One of the best waterproof compacts around, if not as all-round impressive as the Olympus TG-5

Panasonic Lumix FT7 Full Review


We publish our review of the new Panasonic Lumix FT7, the camera is waterproof to 31m and has a built-in EVF. The FT7 has a 20mp sensor, and records 4K video.

The Panasonic Lumix FT7 is unique in offering an electronic viewfinder (EVF), which will be great for those who find themselves outside in bright sunny weather. The camera can produce bright colourful images, however, the use of a 20mp sensor has...
