At first sight, Panasonic's FT1 looks the nearest rival to Olympus' mighty Mju 8000. It's a similar size, weight and shape and is also waterproof, shockproof and operable down to -10 degrees.
- Waterproof to 3m
- Shockproof to 1.5m
- Similar price, design and specs to the Mju 8000 but not as tough
- 4.6x wide-angle zoom (28-128mm equivalent)
- 1,280x720 HD Movie mode using either AVCHD or Motion JPEG formats
- Proximity of Shutter Release and Zoom buttons could be a problem
