Control It and Share Instantly From Your Smartphone
Tough & WiFi with NFC
The advanced WiFi functions of the LUMIX FT5 give you the ability to control, save and share your images easily.
One Touch Connection

You'll have the ultimate wireless control with the Panasonic Image App. You can use your smartphone or tablet to control the camera's zoom, set the focus, and shoot from a distance.
Getting yourself in the photo has never been easier with remote shooting and now you can even get into the video action too. The FT5 will start and stop video recording from your smartphone or tablet allowing you to reach new heights in your creativity.
Once you've captured your photos and videos remotely, don't worry about running back to the camera to see if you got the shot. You can view images and play back videos right from your smartphone to ensure you got it. You're free to continue shooting right at the spot without moving back to the camera to reset it like you would have to do with the self-timer function.
Touch and Share
Sharing images has never been easier. Simply touch your camera to your friend's smartphone or tablet and an image will be transferred.*
* In 1-thumbnail playback mode.
Panasonic Image App Easy Share
The power of sharing and convenience is in your hands with the free Panasonic Image App for iOS/Android smartphones/tablets. You can instantly upload and share your images on a SNS (Social Networking Service) with the app.
Set up your camera to instantly transfer the photos you shoot to your device. Just start shooting and the camera will do the rest for you.
Wireless TV playback
Sharing your pictures on your large screen TV has never been easier with the WiFi Direct¿ function. You can display images on a TV that supports the Digital Media Renderer (DMR) function of the DLNA standard (Digital Living Network Alliance) like the Panasonic VIERA HDTV.
Instant Creativity With Built-In Creative Effects
Creative Control/Creative Retouch
Panasonic is ready to take the ordinary and make it extraordinary by fueling your creativity with the Creative Control feature (in the recording mode) and the Creative Retouch feature (in the playback mode). These features take simple or complicated scenes and make them easy to capture in a great photo. Simply set the camera to match your scene and it uses sophisticated presets to optimize the camera settings resulting in photos you'll be proud of.
Creative Control for Video
The Creative Control feature for video matches the colors to your subject and surroundings. In Miniature Effect Mode, the video you record is played back 10x faster making it more comical and fun to watch*.
* Sound will not be recorded with Miniature Effect in Creative Control Mode and approximately 1/10 of the time period is recorded. (If you record for 10 minutes, the resulting motion picture recording will be approximately 1 minute long.)
Advanced Underwater Mode
The Red Color Reproduction of Advanced Underwater Mode compensates for the color red that is easily lost in underwater photography. This creates underwater pictures that look more natural. Other modes that deliver incredible results are Sports, Snow, and Beach & Snorkeling. They can all be selected from the menu quickly and easily.
Panasonic has developed the industry's first Creative Panorama functions. Discover 12 filter effects that will take your panorama images to the next level with creative and dramatic results.
For those looking to take on more creative control, the DMC-FT5 has easy-to-use manual controls. You can set the aperture to control the depth of field, and adjust the shutter speed to freeze moving subjects or create a motion blur that exaggerates the feeling of movement.
iA (Intelligent Auto) Mode
In the iA (Intelligent Auto) Mode, the camera does all the work, leaving you free to compose your shot and capture the moment. Simply aim, press, and shoot. The detection and correction functions go to work to give you beautiful photos and videos*.
* The applicable iA Mode functions vary with photos and videos.
You will be delighted by the creative possibilities that Intelligent HDR (High Dynamic Range) delivers. Shoot several still pictures consecutively at different exposure levels that are then overlaid to produce a single composite picture without whiteout (over-exposure) or blackout (under-exposure). The results are stunning.
Intelligent Night Shot
Bright, glamorous night scenery can be recorded without using a tripod when you use the Intelligent Handheld Night Shot. It generates a beautiful night scene with illumination by layering multiple pictures shot consecutively for one outstanding night photo.
Capture Stills or Full HD Video In and Out of the Water
1920 x 1080 60p Full HD Video Recording
Reach new heights in speed and creative possibilities with your videos. Capture all the action while recording full HD 1,920 x 1,080 videos in AVCHD Progressive (MPEG-4 / H.264) format. Featuring 60p (NTSC) full HD recording capability, subjects with fast motion or fine details will be reproduced clearly.
Motion Picture Button
Video recording can be easily started with the press of the Motion Picture Button making it convenient for switching between photo and video shooting instantly.
MP4 Format Recording
If you want to edit your videos on a computer or upload them to a website, the DMC-FT5 can record full HD 1,920 x 1,080 30p (NTSC) videos in MP4 format.
4.6x Optical Zoom during Video Recording
The powerful 4.6x optical zoom is available in video recording to capture subjects in the distance and bring you closer to the action.
Twice the Information of Interlace Recording
1080/60p / 1080/50p (progressive) conveys about twice the information of 1080i (interlace) recording. It creates intricate detail and silky smooth motion. Even when subjects move quickly, afterimages are minimized to create more natural videos.
Reproduces all image data in a single picture.
Panasonic has incorporated a stereo zoom microphone resulting in videos with the high-quality stereo sound of Dolby® Digital. This delivers realistic sound to your videos. Mechanical noise caused by the camera's zooming operation is suppressed to improve the clearness, and the Auto Wind Cut function blocks out most noise from background wind making the voices you are recording stand out.

Tough, Smart Travel Companion
In addition to being waterproof, shockproof, dustproof and freezeproof, the durable DMC-FT5 also boasts pressure resistance. Take this camera with you on all of your photographic journeys. From fishing or camping in the springtime, diving, snorkeling, surfing in the summer, mountain climbing in autumn, or skiing and snowboarding in winter, the DMC-FT5 is an all-year-round camera that records stunning memories in beautiful photos and videos.
The DMC-FT5 features pressure resistance of 100 kgf thanks to the reinforced rib structure of its internal design. You can safely put it in your pocket or backpack with ease.
With waterproof performance to a depth of 43ft, equivalent to the "IPX8" standard, the DMC-FT5 delivers active shooting on the beach, underwater or in a pool. If the camera gets dirty, soil and dust can be easily washed off with water.
The DMC-FT5 is shockproof from a height of 6.6ft in accordance with the "MIL-STD 810F Method 516.5-Shock" test standard. Shoot actively while moving around with the camera in one hand worry-free.
The DMC-FT5 is dustproof, equivalent to the "IP6X" standard. While hiking or playing sports, fine dust particles can enter cameras through gaps in the camera body and cause malfunctions. No worries with the DMC-FT5, it can be used in these activities and more without any problems.
Looking to shoot in the cold? The DMC-FT5 is freezeproof to 14 degrees Fahrenheit so get out and shoot your favorite winter activities like skiing, snowboarding or skating.
An anti-fog glass on the lens cover prevents it from being fogged with steam when going from one temperature to the next.
GPS and GLONASS
The GPS (Global Positioning System) in the DMC-FT5 complies with GLONASS (Global Navigation Satellite System), taking advantage of it's increased number of satellites, giving you better accuracy.
Place Name and Landmark Information
The LUMIX's GPS shows the name of the Country/Region, State/Prov/County, County/Township, City/Town/Village and Landmark using the internal data to give you real-time information on your location when taking photos.
The photos and videos with the location names are automatically sorted in a virtual folder alphabetically in the camera allowing you to quickly find them.
GPS Log/Altimeter Log
In addition to the Altimeter logging function, the DMC-FT5 records GPS logging. This allows memorizing travel distances which can be displayed on the Google Earth application.
The DMC-FT5 is specially designed for active outdoor use. It adopts GPS, compass, altimeter and even barometer features to show and record altitude, barometric pressure and orientation data. The barometer also works for underwater depth.
Large 3.0-inch 460K-dot LCD
The DMC-FT5 has a 3.0-inch 460K-dot LCD with a 100% field of view. LUMIX's acclaimed Intelligent LCD function automatically adjusts the brightness in 11 step increments according to your shooting conditions. You can share the fun of viewing images with family and friends too.
State-Of-The-Art Features And Technologies
LEICA DC Lens with Folded Optics Technology
The DMC-FT5 features a high-quality LEICA DC lens with 4.6x optical zoom from 28mm wide-angle to 128mm telephoto (35mm camera equivalent: 28-128mm). The folded optics of the shaft guide method helps ensure the toughness of the lens unit. Passing Leica's renowned stringent standards, this lens delivers exceptional optical performance edge to edge.
28mm Wide-Angle Lens
The 28mm wide-angle lens* easily captures large groups of people indoors or expansive architectural structures and scenes with dynamic width and perspective, even from a short distance away.
9.3x Intelligent Zoom
If the 4.6x optical zoom is not long enough for your photographic journey, the Intelligent Zoom uses digital zoom technology with minimum deterioration of image quality thanks to the Intelligent Resolution technology. The 4.6x optical zoom virtually extends to a 9.3x zoom equivalent.
The POWER O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) suppresses vibration and hand-shake that happens when you press the shutter button or when shooting at night with a slow shutter speed.
16.1-Megapixel MOS Sensor
The new 16.1-megapixel High Sensitivity MOS sensor delivers both high quality image recording and high speed signal processing. The Wavelet NR (Noise Reduction) system*1 in the Venus Engine enables a deliberate noise reduction process without missing low-frequency noise by enlarging its detection area by approx.64x*2. The results are high sensitivity image recording even at ISO 3200.
10 fps with 16.1-Megapixel Full Resolution
With the newly developed MOS sensor, the DMC-FT5 will shoot 10 fps* in 16.1-megapixel full resolution with a mechanical shutter, and 5 fps with continuous AF. You can even take a series of shots, choose the ones you like the best, and delete the rest.
60 fps in 3.5-megapixel Resolution
When you need even more frames per second with higher-speed burst shooting, you can use the electronic shutter and achieve 60 fps.
Quick Start-Up Time
The DMC-FT5 is ready to shoot when you are. With its quick start-up time and Light Speed AF the DMC-FT5 helps you to never miss a moment.
Light Speed AF
Light Speed AF helps catch even the most fleeting photo opportunities. You can quickly focus on moving subjects such as sports, animals or kids.
The DMC-FT5 features a torch light that helps records beautiful videos even in dusky underwater environments or at a nighttime camp. You can even turn on the light to illuminate a subject when the camera function is not activated.
Time Lapse Shot
Have you ever wanted to capture a flower blooming, or clouds floating across the sky? The Time Lapse Shot feature on the DMC-FT5 gives you the creative control to set the start time, interval for taking the images, and the number of pictures to shoot. Once that is set, the camera will automatically record the images without you.
3D Shooting Capability
Photos or videos recorded in AVCHD on the SD/SDHC/SDXC Memory Cards are easy to view on a Panasonic VIERA TV. Simply insert the card into the SD/SDHC/SDXC Memory Card slot on a VIERA TV or DIGA Blu-ray Disc™ player to playback your photos and videos. You can also use an optional HDMI micro cable to output the photos and videos you took from the camera directly to the TV for VIERA Link. Control many of these features using the TV's remote control.
Combine your pictures taken with the 3D Photo Mode and the 3D VIERA TV and your photos come to life in a way you never thought imaginable.
Extended battery Life
The high-energy efficiency and new large capacity battery delivers extended battery life by approximately 20%. You can shoot approximately 370 pictures on a single battery charge
