Rugged Digital Camera FT4 – for Powerful Outdoor Use with Built-in GPS Function, Compass, Altimeter and Barometer

The DMC-FT4 is waterproof to 12m (40ft), shockproof to 2.0m (6.6ft), freezeproof to -10 degrees C (14 degree F) and dustproof. It is surely the reliable companion for the recorder of your outdoor adventures either in diving, snorkeling, surfing, climbing, skiing, snowboarding, camping or what so ever.

The DMC-FT4 can record full HD 1920 × 1080 videos in AVCHD / MP4 format, thanks to Hi-Speed CCD that features higher transfer processing speed. The AVCHD format excels in the compatibility with AV equipment like HDTVs or Blu-ray DiscTM players. The MP4 format has high compatibility with computers. A separate button lets you instantly start recording video without the need of extra settings. The 4.6x optical zoom and iA Mode are available in video recording. Videos also come with the high-quality sound system of Dolby® Digital Creator.

The built-in GPS function displays not only latitudes and longitudes, but also the area information that covers 203 countries or regions and the landmark information of over 1,000,000 locations in 82 countries or regions. The photos and videos with the location names are automatically sorted in the virtual folder alphabetically in the camera for quick reach. You can also refer them via the included PHOTOfunSTUDIO. Geo-tagged images can be pinpointed on the maps of social media internet maps to be shared with your friends and families.

With the Time Lapse Shot, you can record stationary observation just by setting the start time, interval and number of pictures to shoot. Once everything is set, the camera will automatically continue shooting subjects such as flowers coming into bloom, scudding cloud, or wild animals. The DMC-FT4 adopts compass, altimeter and barometer (indicator for depth underwater) to show and record altitude, barometric pressure and orientation data. The altimeter log helps you forecasting the climate and the log of barometric trend tells how high you are.

The POWER O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) boasts double repression power compared to the MEGA O.I.S.. It is particularly effective for a low-frequency vibration, which is physically generated when pressing the shutter button or when shooting at night with a slow shutter speed. You get bright photos without blurring even from handheld shooting at slow shutter speeds. The Active Mode effectively suppresses blur in video recording especially at wide angle while walking or playing with children.
