Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FT2

 

In the arena of tough compacts, is the FT2 a knockout?

With specs to impress, the FT2 will prove a strong contender for the longer-established Olympus Tough range. Its durability will cope with the toughest of conditions, without sacrificing image quality.

A well priced, rugged digital camera; versatile for use in a variety of outdoor situations, including cold and wet environments

Need to ensure lens is wiped clean after use under water; hard to view images on 2.7in LCD screen in bright daylight

Following hot on the heels of Panasonic's first tough camera, the DMC-FT1, comes the DMC-FT2, which is even more extreme and rugged than before.
