Tough. Dependable. Strong

Featuring 4K capability and waterproofing up to 31 metres, Panasonic introduce the DC-FT7, a newly enhanced and highly versatile durable camera that can capture never-before images.

3218297.jpgWaterproof Down to 31m/102ft
Thanks to an improved depth rating of 31m/102ft (IPX8 standard), if you are a hardcore scuba diver, you can now capture great underwater shots without the need of a waterproof case.

Viewfinder
Monitors can be difficult to see in bright sunshine, on the beach or the slopes. The LUMIX FT7’s 0.2-inch 1,170k-dot equivalent high-resolution LVF (Live View Finder) equips you to compose the perfect shot.

3218297.jpg3.0-inch 1,040k-dot Rear Monitor
Boasting a highest-in-class 1,040k-dot high-resolution 3.0-inch tempered-glass LCD screen, the LUMIX FT7 is designed for durability. Intelligent LCD technology ensures continuous visibility by automatically adjusting the screen’s brightness level in seven stages to handle a wide range of ambient light conditions.

3218297.jpg4K Photo
The unique 4K Photo feature allows you to capture the perfect moment by selecting a frame from a video sequence shot at 30 frames per second and saving it as an 8-megapixel-equivalent high-resolution image.

4K Video
Whether you’re watching movies or editing videos, 4K delivers a far more intense viewing experience. Its native resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 pixels is four times larger than Full HD, resulting in a much higher level of clarity.

3218297.jpg20.4MP Sensor and 4.6x Zoom Lens
Featuring a highest-in-class resolution 20.4-megapixel High Sensitivity MOS sensor and 4.6x optical zoom lens, the LUMIX FT7 empowers you to capture brilliant high-definition shots from 28mm wide-angle to 128mm.

Protection For All Kinds of Outdoor Excitement
  • Waterproof Down to 31m/102ft for scuba diving, kayaking, fishing, and other water sports
  • Shockproof Up to 2m/6.6ft and Dustproof for mountaineering, rock climbing, and more action
  • Freezeproof Down to -10°C / 14°F for skiing, snowboarding, and more winter excitement
  • Pressure Resistance to 100kgf/220lbf so it can be packed inside luggage when you’re on the move

Let me break it down for you;
1) You mention negative reviews but don’t tell us where.
2) You suggest that another option that’s twice the price is better. Shocker.
3) You don’t tell us what that better option is.

A post on HUKD can either be informative, or funny. The best are both. Yours was neither. Mine wasn’t informative, nor was it overly funny. It is, however, the most liked comment on this thread...

There endeth the lesson.
Good value for two cameras.

Polaroid
Nice camera but seems to only do 1080p at 60fps which is disappointing especially considering its claimed £400 normal price. Native 4k at 30fps is quite common now on a few sub £100 action camera's and those action camera's are a lot smaller and mountable than this camera.

Not the best of quality to be honest. I tried one and ended up selling it after a couple weeks. If you're spending that kind of money you'd be aswell buying a second hand GoPro. That's my opinion anyway.

It's not an 'action camera'. Comparing it to a GoPro is missing the point. It is just a tough, waterproof compact camera. It is designed to be handheld, not mounted onto something.
So probably better for photos, not just video. It has a viewfinder, and a lot more buttons etc than a GoPro.
I'm a panasonic fanboy and i'd go for the gopro over this. image will be better and it's a lot smaller.
I love the GoPro comments. Gopro is mainly for POV this is not - it’s for taking photos of others - something that GoPro sucks at unless you’re super close to the object... that can be scary AF in some cases in the water. So all in all good price for a waterproof zoom camera.

I know its not the same, but a few years ago, i bought an Olympus 'tough action' camera for about £120. They have obviously moved on considerably but i would guess that the video sound would still be tinny (to protect the microwave from water) but the actual video and camera quality is brilliant.
So what i'm trying my best to say is...these cameras are fantastic for holidays and down the beach. You probably wont use them much apart from that, but for recording your family and friends whilst messing around in a pool etc, they are invaluable.
This is a good price for a good camera so heat and thanks OP.
It's now £149.89, in orange. Blue out of stock.

No, your comment provided no details explaining why you thought it was “crap”.

Nor were you even able to furnish us with the details of the alternative you mentioned.

Useless/pointless comment - you choose.

Try it again, mine's getting £149.99
Will always dislike Costcos membership policy. If they ever flop one day I will raise a glass to it. No doubt they will scrap it entirely before that, but then will still be deserving of said flop. Paying them for the pleasure of paying them. Jesus.

Thanks! I got one, looking forward to getting it....
For this price this is by far the best waterproof/rugged camera.
I wonder how it will be vs a Gopro Hero 5.

No way it'll flop. Haven't you seen Idiocracy?
Mines coming in 2 hours, cant wait...
It did not get the best reviews BUT those were at its £350-400 price point...
It often gets compared to the Olympus TG-5 and the TG5 wins on many levels...but its over twice the price!
Also, even a refurb Hero5 costs more than this and I recon this will be much better...
I think at this price its worth it, not sure id say the same thing if it was £250+
Great price
