It is also shockproof droppable from a height up to 2.0m/6.6ft, freezeproof that endure the temperature as low as -10°C/14°F, and comprehends pressure resistance of 100kgf/220lbf. It newly adopts an anti-fog glass to prevent from being fogged with steam. Take out the camera to fishing, camping, diving, snorkeling, surfing, climbing, skiing or snowboarding – The DMC-FT5 is an all-year-round active field player to record stunning memories.
The DMC-FT5 can record high-resolution full HD 1,920 x 1,080 videos with stunning smoothness at 50p in AVCHD Progressive and 25p in MP4. The videos also come with the high-quality stereo sound of Dolby® Digital and a stereo microphone with zoom noise reduction. The Time Lapse Shot is advanced for DMC-FT5. Once the start time, the interval and the number of picture to shoot are set, the camera will automatically shoot images and those images can be combined in a camera to produce a time lapse video.
The DMC-FT5 integrates Wi-Fi® connectivity and NFC technology. NFC lets users connect the camera with a smartphone/tablet by just placing them nearby and follow the simple guidance. With "Panasonic Image App", users can enjoy remote shooting, easy SNS upload, and Instant Transfer, which allows the camera to automatically transfer data to the designated electronic devices. Transferring data to PC is available via wireless access point (router) at home. The Wi-Fi Direct™ allows direct playback of images on some of the DLNA-compliant VIERA HDTV.
The GPS complies with GLONASS to further enhance its accuracy. It shows the name of the Country/Region, State/Prov./County, County/Township, City/Town/Village, and worldwide landmark information. The photos and videos with the location names are automatically sorted in the camera for quick reach and newly added logging function allows memorizing travelling distance which can be displayed on the Google Earth application. Compass, altimeter and even barometer are adopted for active outdoor use.
The new 16.1-megapixel High Sensitivity MOS sensor is integrated in the DMC-FT5 to further enhances its high performance signal processing. Wavelet NR (Noise Reduction) system in the Venus Engine enables deliberate noise reduction process without missing low-frequency noise by enlarging its detection area. It results in the high sensitivity image with reduced blur even at high ISO settings. The Advanced Underwater Mode with Red Color Reproduction compensates for the red color which is easily lost in underwater shooting.
