The Panasonic Lumix DMC FT3 is a robust digital camera. It is waterproof to depths of 12m, freezeproof down to temperatures of -10 degrees centigrade, shockproof to drops of 2m and dustproof too. As you can see it is capable of operating in extremes as well as being able to cope with the odd bump and bruise.
With this set of features the Lumix DMC FT3 is the type of digital camera you might see as a good choice if you are travelling or taking a holiday. An additional feature that may appeal to you if you are travelling is GPS positioning. This will help you to track exactly where you were when a photo was taken at a later date. In addition Panasonic has equipped the Lumix DMC FT3 with a compass, barometer and altimeter.
More standard features include 12 megapixels and a 4.6x zoom lens. As with other Panasonic digital cameras you have the option to increase the amount of zoom available to you if you reduce the number of megapixels you are shooting at. A maximum 9.1 megapixels are available if you are shooting at 3 megapixels or less. Full High Definition movies at a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels can be recorded. The Lumix DMC FT3 also has a 3D photo mode.
