FT7 vs FT5: key dif­fer­ences

Amateur Photographer - - Testbench -

As An ex­tremely ro­bust and solidly con­structed cam­era, the FT7 cer­tainly has its ap­peal as a take-any­where cam­era. There’s plenty to el­e­vate it above the older FT5 model that it re­places too: the ad­di­tion of an EVF, al­beit a small one, gives pho­tog­ra­phers the op­tion to shoot at eye level. The rear LCD dis­play is much im­proved too, al­though ours did in­ex­pli­ca­bly fog up dur­ing one out­ing into the sea. Last but not least, the FT7 also comes well equipped with a range of Pana­sonic-spe­cific fea­tures and tech­nol­ogy found on other Pana­sonic cam­eras, not least 4K Photo Mode with its in­no­va­tive ways of cap­tur­ing 8MP stills from 4K movie footage.
