FT7 vs FT5: key differences
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.
