Panasonic has introduced a new rugged camera to its waterproof, freezeproof, shockproof and dustproof tough camera range, the Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FT30. Designed and built with adventurous personalities in mind, the LUMIX FT30 provides stunning picture quality and exceptional performance and endurance, even in the toughest conditions. Ruggedly-built and available in black, blue, red or orange, the LUMIX FT30 is the ideal companion for capturing those once-in-a-lifetime moments on your travels – from snorkling with dolphins, to trekking in the desert, to ascending a mountain in sub-zero temperatures.
Waterproof and Tough for Active Lifestyles
Enjoy easy, casual shooting with style both in town and during outdoor adventures. This model is optimal for both, with durability features: waterproof down to 8m, shockproof up to 1.5m, freezeproof down to -10°C, dustproof.
220MB Built-in Memory
The 220MB built-in memory provides extra memory for a maximum of 34 shots when the memory card fills up.
Beautiful Underwater Shots
The Red Color Reproduction of Advanced Underwater Mode compensates for the red color which is easily lost in underwater shooting to look underwater picture more natural. Sports, Snow and Beach & Surf Mode can also be selected easily and quickly from the menu.
MEGA O.I.S.(Optical Image Stabilizer)
The MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) compensates for the blurring caused by hand-shake. Even slight hand-shake movement is accurately detected by a sampling frequency of 4,000 times per second, and compensated to produce sharp, clear images.
With the Creative Panorama function, it is possible to shoot a horizontal / vertical panoramic image with consequent shots taken by overlaying the previous picture and reflect a filter effects of the Creative Control.
The Creative Control (in the recording mode) and the Creative Retouch* (in the playback mode, for photos only) give you the expressive power to turn ordinary situations into highly special scenes.
MP4 HD Video Recording
You can record dynamic HD videos in 1280 x 720p* in MP4 format. Recording videos can be started with a press of an independent motion picture button, which is convenient for you to switch photo / video shooting instantly.
Torch light records beautiful videos even in dusky underwater environments or at a nighttime camp. It is also possible to turn only light on to light up subject even while camera function is not activated.
Time Lapse Shot
Leave the camera to record of stationary observation for subjects such as flowers coming into bloom or scudding cloud. The series of consequent images can be combined in a camera to produce a time lapse video.
