    Panasonic Lumix DC-FT7 Announcement

      News

    The lovers of extreme sports and holiday explorers had to wait 3 years for the new Panasonic device, with the use of  which they would be able to record their great discoveries and sports achievements. The successor of FT6Panasonic Lumix DC-FT7, has just appeared on the market. 

     

    The main features of FT7 are its shock and water immersion resistance. The camera can be immersed up to 31m and it should remain undamaged after falling onto the hard surface from 2m. The device should also work properly in the temperature of -10°C.

    1). Panasonic Lumix DC-FT7

     

    Panasonic FT7 has been equipped with the 1/2.3'' MOS sensor, with the resolution of 20.4Mp. The strengthened waterproof construction of the camera has possibly made the designers use a rather unimpressive f/3.3-5.9 lens with the zoom with the equivalent of 28 - 128mm. We will also not be able to save RAW photographs.

    2). Panasonic Lumix DC-FT7

     

    For the first time, Panasonic used an in-built electronic viewfinder in such a device. It has the resolution of 1.17 Mp and the image can be zoomed up to 0.45x.  The camera is equipped with a classic 3'' LCD screen (not a touch one). Some of the other functions include 49-point  phase-detection autofocus and a possibility of recording films in 4K with the speed of 24f/s. The frame rate can be increased by reducing the resolution of the recorded film - in the case of 1080 up to 30f/s, and in the case of 720p up to 120f/s, which can be played in 4x slow motion.

    3). Panasonic Lumix DC-FT7

     

    The original '4K Photo' mode enables the 'extraction' of individual frames from the registered 4K material. They have the resolution of 8Mp. The continuous shooting mode can work with the speed of 10f/s. The camera is equipped with the flash and LED diode, which can be helpful in recording videos and which can be used as a flashlight.

    The camera will be sold in three colorful version: black, blue and orange. Panasonic Lumix FT7 is to appear on sale in the summer. It will cost $449.99. You can pre-order this camera here.

      DESCRIPTION
      Panasonic FT7 is the first resistant compact camera with an in-built electronic viewfinder, equipped with the 20.4MP 1/2.3'' MOS sensor and not so bright zoom lens (f/3.3-5.9) with the equivalent of 28-128mm.

      It is also the first camera from this segment which offers an in-built electronic viewfinder (1.17 MP, zoom 0.45×). The camera is equipped with the 3'' LCD screen (unfortunately, not a touch one), 49-point phase-detection autofocus. There is also a possibility of recording films in 4K with the speed of 24f/s. In Full HD, the speed increases to 30f/s. In HD 720p, we will be able to record films in slow motion with the speed of 120f/s. The 4K Photo mode, known from more professional Panasonic cameras, is also at our disposal. This mode enables taking out single 8MP frames from 4K films. 

      What is more, the camera can be immersed up to 31 metres and put under the pressure of 100kg. The camera is also supposed to endure falls from 2m and ensure work in the temperatures up to  -10°C.
