Product information
Capture the action underwater, at the beach or in the snow all with the durable Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT30EB-A Tough Compact Camera.

Sharp, steady shots


Shoot all the action with the Lumix DMC-FT30's 16.1 megapixel CCD sensor, which captures plenty of detail for creating large poster size prints. Get closer to the action without compromising on quality with a 4 x optical zoom.

Don't let hand-shake ruin a perfectly good shot, the DMC-FT30EB features a MEGA Optical Image Stabiliser which compensates for blurring caused by even the slightest amount of hand-shake movement to produce clear, sharp results.

Tough design


With a full metal body, the Lumix DMC-FT30EB features an extra tough design that's fully waterproof down to 8 metres for capturing underwater wildlife, action and fun.

This durable camera is also shockproof, freezeproof and dustproof for withstanding extreme elements, great for the beach, snow or just about town.

Shoot underwater


Underwater shots are enhanced thanks to the red colour reproduction of Advanced Underwater Mode for a more natural result whether you're in a pool or the sea.

Light up dusky underwater scenes with the integrated torch light, which can be used even when the camera function is not activated. This light also comes in handy when shooting in low light conditions.

Photo modes


Get creative with your shooting with a variety of special modes and attractive filter effects. Creative Panorama lets you shoot a horizontal or vertical panoramic image by automatically overlaying each image.

With Time Lapse Shot you can capture a series of images such as a landscape with moving clouds, which can then be combined in camera to produce a unique time lapse video.

Shoot and film


Instantly switch from photo to video at a touch of a button for recording dynamic HD 720p videos in MP4 format, ideal for recording action sequences.

Videos you record will look great when you watch back on a large screen, giving you a fantastic way to record and replay your memories.

Don't forget your memory card

It is important to have the right memory card for your camera. The memory card will determine how fast an image is saved and how fast an image is uploaded.

If you're shooting high definition videos along with high resolution images then it's best to invest in a high performance memory card. A high performance memory card will get the best out of your photography, ensuring the best continuous shooting speed and high quality data capture.

What's more, we range a variety of camera cases that will protect and help keep your gear organised on photography journeys.

Tough and stylish, the blue the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT30EB-A Tough Compact Camera is great for snapping fun and action.

I bought this camera about three weeks ago and overall, I am pleased with it - though time will tell. I use it mostly to take photographs when I'm swimming with friends.
I would like the buttons to be a bit bigger. It's a bit tricky when you swim without wetsuit or gloves through the winter to operate the controls with 'claw' hands.

It is really compact for a waterproof camera, a lot I've looked at were quite bulky. It's easy to use and has a wide range of features. I haven't used it too much yet but image quality seems good both in and out of the water. Great buy for the price

Really easy to use, switches from wet to dry easily with both panoramic, night and sports options. Very easy to snap photos.
A few photos were a little fuzzy but that was probably me being over confident and not allowing the camera to finish before moving on.
