By Michelle Starr | Thursday | 28/01/2010

The Lumix DMC-FT2, the predecessor to the DMC-FT1, has seen some marked improvements in the line's ruggedness.

Designed to withstand tough conditions, the DMC-FT2 is waterproof to a depth of 10m (compared to the 3m of the DMC-FT1), dustproof, freeze-proof to -10°C and can be dropped from a height of 2m (compared to the DMC-FT1's 1.5m). It also includes the newly developed Venus Engine HDII for powerful image processing.

The camera's 14.1-megapixel resolution, 28-mm wide-angle LEICA lens with 4.6x optical zoom and Panasonic's Intelligent Auto mode make it an easy-to-use yet powerful camera for snapping action shots on the fly. It can also record HD video in 1280x720 quality.

"The DMC-FT2's highly-ruggedised design can go just about anywhere, so it is the ideal choice for any active photographer—from outdoor adventurers to families looking for a fuss-free everyday camera," said Tanya Mudge, Product Marketing Manager—LUMIX, Panasonic Australia.

"This, combined with the DMC-FT2's outstanding image quality and stunning High Definition video recording capabilities, makes it the ultimate all-in-one solution for those who are as passionate about photography as they are about their high energy lifestyle," continued Ms Mudge.

"Plus, with its increased water-, shock- and freeze-resistance and its availability in a fantastic choice of colours, the DMC-FT2 will look great and keep pace with your own adventurous spirit."

The DMC-FT2 also features an energy-efficient high-performance engine, with a battery life up to 330 shots; a 2.7-inch, 230,000-dot Intelligent LCD viewing screen with anti-relfection coating and will be available from March 2010 in blue, orange, yellow or silver for an RRP of $599.

New LG 65   New LG 65" Ultra High Definition TV, Complete With Pop Down Speakers: REVIEW
LG Australia has finally rolled out their 65" Ultra High Definition TV offering in Australia and what you get is a TV that delivers a quantum leap in TV technology and surprisingly a significantly improved sound system that is delivered from pop down speakers but the big question is whether it is worth $6,999.
