Product description for Panasonic Lumix DC-FT7 blue
The LUMIX FT7 has WiFi connectivity for an even more flexible recording experience and the ability to send and share pictures directly. In addition, the camera offers a variety of filter and creative possibilities: Creative Control, Creative Panorama, Time Lapse or Slow Motion. Particularly helpful for photography beginners is the intelligent automatic function, iA. It supports the photographer in choosing the appropriate settings for the respective subject. If required, the FT7's flash can also be used as the light source regardless of the shooting function. For example, subjects can be illuminated or the camera can be used as a flashlight. The camera can be charged easily via USB.
Whether swimming, snorkeling, climbing, diving, surfing, snowboarding or skiing - the Panasonic FT7 is the reliable, robust partner for any outdoor experience.
Robust design for carefree outdoor experiences
Whether in the spring for fishing, diving and surfing in summer, mountain biking in the fall or winter snowboarding and skiing - the LUMIX FT7 is the ideal companion for breathtaking and unique photos all year round. Water resistant to 31 meters, dustproof, shockproof up to a fall height of 2m and frost resistant to -10 degrees Celsius and pressure resistant up to 100kg - the FT7 is perfectly equipped for any outdoor use. Due to the minimal opening area, the matching rubber padding and the reinforced glass, the camera offers a correspondingly low attack surface for water, dust etc. The housing of the camera is even thicker compared to the predecessor model, for example due to the high pressure under water at a depth of up to 31 meters withstand. Thanks to the so-called shockproof technology, the FT7 can also be dropped from a height of two meters without damage, in accordance with the test standard "MUL-STD 810F Method 516.5-Shock". All components of the camera have been optimized for the new model again, so that the frost resistance to -10 degrees Celsius can be guaranteed. Especially practical for outdoor activities are the integrated compass and altimeter of the LUMIX FT7.
New viewfinder and high-resolution monitor
The new model of the FT series has a 0.2-inch viewfinder with 1.1 million pixels resolution. This makes it even easier to take pictures and videos in strong sunlight or backlight. Additional plus: The viewfinder saves power and thus achieves a longer battery life, especially under difficult conditions. Both the sensor and the viewfinder are both in 4: 3 format. In addition, the 3.0-inch rear monitor in 3: 2 format offers the highest image resolution with 1,040,000 pixels and a field of view of up to 100 percent. The image output between the viewfinder and the monitor can be switched immediately by pressing a button. The cover glass of the LCD is made of tempered glass.
Feature Revolutionizes Video and Photography - 4K Video and 4K PHOTO In addition to full HD video in 1920x1080 resolution 60p / 50p in MP4 (MPEG-4 / H.264) format with continuous auto focus, the LUMIX FT7 is also impressive Smooth and high-resolution QFHD 4K video in 3840x2160 resolution at 30p / 25p or 24p in MP4.
Unlike its predecessor, the FT7 takes full advantage of 4K technology, allowing users to use the 4K PHOTO feature with this model. It also captures fleeting moments and fast-moving objects at 30 fps. From the resulting 4K image series, the image with the best timing can then be extracted and saved as an 8-megapixel photo.
To make the 4K-PHOTO experience even easier, the LUMIX FT7 integrates the functions 4K Burst Shooting, 4K Burst (Start / Stop) and 4K Pre-burst. The 4K Burst Shooting allows a continuous shooting with 30 B / s *, similar to a photo series.
Also added in the new model of the FT series is the post-focus function. This allows the photographer to select the desired focus area even after taking the picture. This is particularly helpful, for example, in macro shots, which require a precise focus. The 4.6x optical zoom with POWER OIS is also available for video recording. In addition, the Auto Wind Cut function automatically turns off any background noise caused by wind. In addition to time-lapse and stop-motion animations, the FT7 also features High-Speed Video, which allows recording fast HD motion at 100 fps.

High image quality thanks to the new 20.4 megapixel high-sensitivity MOS sensor
The new LUMIX FT7 camera integrates a high-sensitivity 20.4 Megapixel MOS sensor to achieve the highest possible resolution of all images. In addition, thanks to the high-speed signal readout, the model can easily capture 10 B / s * photo series at full resolution with mechanical shutter. With continuous AF 5 B / s are possible. The short reaction time of the autofocus also allows moving and entertaining moments to capture precisely and sharply. The FT7 combines a high-quality 28mm wide-angle lens LUMIX with 4.6x optical zoom (35mm equivalent: 28-128mm) in folded optics. With the help of the integrated Intelligent Resolution technology, the LUMIX FT7 also has the Intelligent Zoom available, which allows the zoom factor to be extended to approximately 9.1 while the quality remains the same. This feature is also available in combination with digital zoom. In addition to guarantee shake-free, sharp images, the POWER OIS actively suppresses any possible hand-shaking when taking photos.
