Panasonic LUMIX FT30 Active Lifestyle Tough Digital Camera, Blue (DMC-FT30GN-A)


Panasonic's small camera can withstand a bang and a splash. The FT30 is not very advanced and has limited features. For example, there is no GPS, Wi-Fi or full-HD video. But it can withstand free fall from 1.5 meters, can dive down to 8 meters and is small enough to slip into the pocket without any problems. The Lumix FT30 has a small, low-resolution screen and 4x zoom from 25 to 100 mm, which is enough for most things. It also has a little LED light that illuminates the subject underwater. Panasonic Tough Lumix FT30 in Australia is readily available online and on physical stores. We have set up a few stores from where you can place the order of this tough mini camera.

Price and Availability

The picture quality gives the FT30 a limited range of use and the battery life means that you will not get far on a day with beautiful weather unless you bring extra batteries. The camera, on the other hand, is straightforward to use, but the screen is so dull in sunlight that it provides limited visibility. Panasonic Tough Lumix FT30 price in Australia $180 to $280, which is quite a handsome amount to pay for this camera. The FT30 is best suited for those who need a camera that can handle a bit of beating but is not too picky when it comes to image quality. Instead buy the Panasonic Lumix FT5, which is a much better, but not much more expensive, camera.

The Panasonic Lumix FT30 has a lot of features and therefore a lot of setting options via the menus. This means that unfortunately, it is not quite clear where to go for a specific setting. There are both shortcut buttons. Some settings can be found in all three places, but many exist in only one place. But if you have made your settings, it is quite easy to use. However, the built-in flash tends to overexpose the images if you go too close to the subject, and it does not have quite enough range, for example. An indoor group photo. But for everyday snapshots, the Panasonic Lumix FT30 does just fine.

The Panasonic Lumix FT30 is a compact camera made of metal and chromed plastic. It is specified to be able to withstand several stabs, including waterproof down to 8 meters, shock-resistant when falling from up to 1.5 meters, and then it can be used for as low as - 10 degrees.

On the front of the Panasonic Lumix FT30, we find the built-in flash, and autofocus lamp that can also be used as a video light, as well as the lens. The lens is entirely internal, that is, zoom takes place inside the chamber, and therefore the lens does not move. There is no built-in lens cover, but there is an edge around it, so you have to be pretty unlucky to scratch it.
