January 31, 2009


When we talk about tough cameras, the first brand that usually comes to mind would be Olympus. However, Panasonic has recently join the fray with its first rugged shooter, the Lumix DMC-FT1. 12.1 megapixels camera with 96.3 x 63.1 x 23 mm dimension.

It is waterproof up to 3m, shockproof from drops of 1.5m and has airtight seals to prevent dust and sand from slipping into the innards.
4.6x optical zoom wide-angle lenses with range from 28mm  to 128mm. It can record HD-quality video clips using AVCHD compression.
Not freezeproof and crushproof like the Olympus Mju TOUGH, but still nice.
