The Panasonic Lumix FT3 is good looking, super tough and it takes great pictures. But is it worth the £300 price tag? T3 finds out

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT3

 

How many of us who take photographs on a regular basis can deny that, at one point or another, our camera hasn't inadvertently taken a tumble from our grasp or camera bag? To avoid that heart-in-mouth moment, and for added peace of mind, there's the...

Rugged build, rammed full of the latest must have features, reasonably priced (if at the higher end of the price spectrum compared with a non toughened snapper), easy to use, good results with the minimum of fuss, built in GPS, 3D mode, Full HD clips

Priced at a slight premium, operational buttons too small and fiddly to be operated with gloves on or with wet fingers

You might want a compact camera with a longer lens reach for your holidays - the so-called “travel zoom” of which Panasonic’s new Lumix DMC-TZ20 is a good alternative example - but the added toughened qualities of the FT3 are sure to be a draw for...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS3 review

 

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS3 is the manufacturer's third shot at a high-end rugged camera. (It's the fourth if you include the more budget-friendly DMC-TS10 .) The price continues to hover just south of the $400 mark, but Panasonic has again bulked up...

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS3 is a fast-shooting, easy-to-use rugged compact camera with excellent features to justify its high price.

The TS3's photos and movies look soft.

GPS and fast shooting performance make the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS3 a worthy rugged point-and-shoot even if its photos and videos aren't the sharpest.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT3 review

 

There's no shortage of rugged, waterproof cameras, but the Panasonic FT3 is as resilient as they come. It'll survive drops from two metres, can operate 12 metres underwater, or in temperatures down to -10 degrees centigrade, plus it's perfectly happy...

Image quality isn't outstanding but the long list of great features, from 12m waterproofing to 1080p video capture, makes this an impressive all-rounder.
