Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT4

 

Upgrading 2011's toughened Lumix DMC-FT3 from Panasonic comes the inevitable FT4 incarnation, boasting reinforced glass and rubber padding. Once again the headline stills resolution is 12.1 megapixels and GPS geotagging of images features, thereby...

Rugged build, rammed full of the latest must-have features, reasonably easy to use, built in GPS, 3D mode, Full HD clips

Priced at a premium, largely identical to predecessor, pictures of snapshot quality despite high-ish price tag, operational buttons too small and fiddly to be operated with gloves on or with wet fingers

Rarely has an upgrade seemed as if merely the model number has changed while everything else has stayed the same, so owners of the FT3 needn’t feel a need to rush for this “upgrade”. But where does it sit in the current market? Well, recent rivals to...

Panasonic Lumix review

 

Panasonic took a "why mess with a good thing" approach when it came time to update its 2011 top-of-the-line rugged model, the Lumix DMC-TS3 .

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS4 is an easy-to-use rugged point-and-shoot with some extra exposure control that you won't find on others in its class.

The TS4's photo quality and performance don't improve much from its predecessor, the TS3. It has a somewhat small, low-resolution LCD compared with competing models.

While it doesn't offer much for upgraders, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS4 is still a very good rugged camera.
