Panasonic Lumix FT20 Digital Camera Review

Buy-n-Shoot.com
22 June 2012
  • Conclusion: The Lumix FT20 cannot be faulted for doing what it was designed to, it handles 'though' conditions with its solidly constructed body and will work in conditions other cameras will not and should be applauded for doing so. The image quality is ok the video quality also though this camera offers great value for money with art filters, scene modes and straightforward functionality in a camera that retails for under $300.

Panasonic DMC FT20

Cameras
16 July 2012
  • Conclusion: The Panasonic Lumix DMC FT20 is a mid range robust digital camera. In terms of performance it is mid range too when it comes to picture quality. It is one of those digital cameras that do not stand out from the crowd, but at the same time it is hard to come up with reasons not to buy it. Picture quality is fine for snapshot sized prints.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT20

PhotographyBLOG
25 June 2012
  • Excerpt: With an attractively low street price around the £150 / $150 mark, Panasonic's fourth generation toughened camera, coming after the Lumix DMC-FT1, FT2 and FT3, is the wallet friendly FT20 / TS20 (the more full-featured and expensive FT4 / TS4 is also available). The resolution has perhaps inevitably been increased to an effective 16.1 megapixels (from a 16.5 megapixel 1/2.33 type CCD sensor), which as we'll find out later doesn't do the camera any favours.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT20 review

expertreviews.co.uk
12 April 2012
  • Excerpt: Rugged, waterproof cameras aren't just for water-sports enthusiasts. They're also well suited to the beach, hikes, ski slopes and even just being casually thrown into a bag, ready to capture a shot at a moment's notice. Panasonic has a fine history of rugged cameras, but while previous models have cost around £300, the FT20 is considerably more affordable. It's built to withstand drops from 1.5m, submersion to 5m, temperatures down to -10 degrees centigrade and dust.

Test: Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT20 (Digitalkamera)

CHIP Online
9 August 2012
  • Conclusion: Pansonics Lumix DMC-FT20 ist nicht ohne Schwächen: Störend fallen das hohe Bildrauschen und der grob auflösende Monitor auf. Allerdings stehen den Kritikpunkten die Unterwasser-Fähigkeiten und der in Anbetracht der Robustheit recht günstige Preis gegenüber. Wenn Sie für kleines Geld eine Zweitkamera neben der DSLR oder der hochwertigen Kompakten für den Urlaub suchen, die mit an den Strand soll, ist die FT20 ein tauglicher Kompromiss.
  • Pros: Schneller Autofokus, Outdoor-tauglich
  • Cons: Starkes Bildrauschen,, Schwache Detailtreue, Kleines Display mit schwacher Auflösung
