Panasonic Lumix TS7/FT7 rugged compact camera announced with a built-in EVF

Panasonic has announced its Lumix DC-TS7 (FT7 outside of North America) camera. This is the first waterproof/rugged compact comes with an electronic viewfinder.

The Lumix DC-TS7 has a 20.4MP, 1/2.3″ BSI CMOS sensor and an F3.3-5.9, 28-128mm equiv. lens. It’s able to go 31m/102ft underwater, can take a fall from 2m/6.6ft and can withstand 100kg / 220lb of crushing force. It’s also freezeproof to -10C / +14F.

The camera can capture UHD 4K video at 24p and 30p as well as 1080/60p. There’s a 120 fps mode, but only at 720p resolution. Naturally, the Lumix DC-TS7 supports Panasonic’s 4K Photo feature, which allows for ‘Post Focus’ and 8MP still extraction. Wi-Fi (but not Bluetooth) is built in, and battery life is CIPA-rated at 300 shots per charge.

Retailing for $447.99 in three colors – blue, black, and orange – the Panasonic Lumix DC-TS7 is now available for pre-order at B&H, Adorama.
