|Drop from height||2.00 meter|
|Temp. range from||-10.00 °C|
Also DC FT7’s image sensor has an effective resolution of around 20 megapixel. That’s roughly average and will be sufficient for most purposes. Photos with this resolution can easily be printed to A3 or A2 size.
The Panasonic does not support recording RAW images. RAW images are stored as they come from the sensor, without any in-camera processing or sharpening. Converting to JPEG or other formats takes place on the computeand involves one extra processing step but will almost always result in superior image quality.
|Focal length (min)||28mm|
|Focal length (max)||128mm|
The DC FT7’s shutter speed varies from 1/1300s to 4s.
The highest shutter speed of the Panasonic is just 1/1300s. That’s no longer state of the art and may cause problems in challenging light conditions.

|Min. shutter speed||4s|
The DC FT7’s sensitivity is from 80 ISO and 3200 ISO.
Also, Panasonic’s sensitivity can be boosted to 6400. Therefore, ISO boosting will lead to growth noise.
|Min. sensitivity||80 ISO|
|Max. sensitivity||3200 ISO|
