NEW GAD­GET

Fraser Coast Chronicle - - WEEKEND - WITH GEOFF EGAN

For many peo­ple, mo­bile phones have re­placed point and shoot cam­eras. But for those who want some­thing more ca­pa­ble and more rugged, the Pana­sonic Lu­mix FT7 could be a per­fect op­tion, es­pe­cially for peo­ple want­ing to take pho­tos in the out­doors. The rugged de­sign means it can be dropped from up to two me­tres high and is wa­ter­proof, dust­proof, shock­proof and freezeproof.

It fea­tures a 20.4-megapixel sen­sor that can shoot 4K ul­tra-high def­i­ni­tion video. Un­like many point and shoots, es­pe­cially rugged ver­sions, the FT7 also fea­tures a viewfinder on the rear, but it also still has a three-inch screen on the back. The FT7 also can ap­ply so­cial me­dia-ready fil­ters and ef­fects onto pho­tos. Aus­tralian price $599.
