Designed for active use, the FT1 is 3.0 meters waterproof, 1.5 meters shockproof and dust-proof. It is the ideal camera for shooting beautiful pictures and movies in the pool or ocean. Swim along with tropical fish and capture shots of a beautiful coral reef, or get action footage of a friend snorkeling. Protected against sand, you can take it to the beach with no worries. FT1's fortified outer body casing and intermediate resin chassis protects it from short falls, making it perfect for work and hiking trips.
