Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT5

 

The Panasonic FT5 is the tank of compact cameras: it's boxy, hard as nails and tough enough to flatten most traditional compact cameras' specifications too. Brute force is delivered in the form of water, dust, freeze and crush-proofing, while global...

Hard as nails, waterproof to decent depth, swift autofocus, good shot to shot times, fast burst mode up to seven full-size frames, quick to clear buffer so camera is ready to use quickly after, minimum shutter speed option within menus, spot focus for...

Image quality not standout, washed-out colours and visible noise/processing throughout ISO range, shutter's a little stiff to press, not keen on W-T zoom mechanism control nor rear position, image softness from limited zoom range, it's fairly pricey,...

The Panasonic Lumix FT5 is a solid all-rounder in the tough camera market segment. But it does fall into that typical trap: the tough features essentially come at the expense of the best possible image quality. While the FT5's images are reasonable...

Panasonic Lumix FT5 review

 

No camera looks more rugged than the FT5, the latest in Panasonic's rufty-tufty compact family. Some of the plastic parts of the case feel a tad flimsy but they're offset by the soid engineering of the metal front plate and thick rim around the lens....

Smooth and colourful video, Natural looking stills, Transfer images with a fist bump

Nikon edges it for image quality, Some flimsy feeling plastic

Panasonic FT5 review

 

Panasonic updates its toughest compact camera

Although many aspects of the Panasonic FT5 are the same as the Panasonic FT4, the fact that the sensor and processing engine has changed means that the image quality it produces is an unknown quantity.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS5

 

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS5 has some issues with image noise at medium sensitivities, but is otherwise a solid entry in the tough camera category.

The TS5 starts and fires a photo in just under 1.7 seconds, and its shutter lag is a mere 0.05-second—as close to zero as you’ll find in a compact. Burst shooting modes are plentiful, with a top full-resolution speed that we clocked at 8.2 frames per...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT5 Digital Camera Review

 

with improved ruggedness. The camera also features a new underwater white balance mode and is now waterproof to 13m, shockproof to 2m, can endure temperatures as low as -10ºC and is dustproof. The Panasonic Lumix FT5 is available in orange, black,...

Extremely tough, Good image quality, Well stitched panoramas, Built-in Wi-Fi and GPS, Excellent AWB performance

Image quality reduces when using the optical zoom, Portraits have red-eye when shooting with the flash, Slight ghosting when shooting handheld HDR images, Quite expensive

Panasonic Lumix DMC-L10 D-SLR Review

 

Panasonic's newest D-SLR updates its semi-professional L1 sibling with a more consumer oriented feature set.

Lens, OIS, white balance, live view, responsive, nice menus, low ISO image quality, handling, flip out LCD makes the most of Live View

Small viewfinder, noise in images at high ISO, build, slower aperture kit lens (than L1), no depth of field preview in Live View

The Panasonic Lumix DMC L10 is easy to use, provides plenty of shooting options and features and is worthy of close consideration for anyone trading up from a high spec’ compact or those looking from more from their photography.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS5

 

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS5 has some issues with image noise at medium sensitivities, but is otherwise a solid entry in the tough camera category.

Sharp lens. Rugged design. Wi-Fi with NFC. GPS. 1080p60 video recording. Snappy focus. Multiple burst shooting options.

Noticeable image noise. Not as wide-angle as other tough cameras. Similar cameras can go deeper underwater.

Performance and Conclusions The TS5 starts and fires a photo in just under 1.7 seconds, and its shutter lag is a mere 0.05-second—as close to zero as you'll find in a compact. Burst shooting modes are plentiful, with a top full-resolution speed that we...
