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.
