Summary: The FT5 improves where the Panasonic Lumix FT4 left off. It offers better connectivity options to those who’d like to share their images on social media and the NFC functionality will appeal to those who already own an NFC enabled device and fancy transmitting images by the power of touch.
Pros: Image Quality; Build and handling; Wi-fi and GPS; NFC connectivity
Cons: Images can lack vibrancy underwater; Screen scratches easily
Summary: No camera looks more rugged than the FT5, the latest in Panasonic's rufty-tufty compact family. Some of the plastic parts of the case feel a tad flimsy but they're offset by the soid engineering of the metal front plate and thick rim around the lens.
Pros: Smooth and colourful video, Natural looking stills, Transfer images with a fist bump
Cons: Nikon edges it for image quality, Some flimsy feeling plastic
