The GPS on the FT5 complies with GLONASS to further enhance its accuracy, and the new 16.1MP High Sensitivity MOS sensor is beautifully integrated to further enhance its high performance signal processing. The Wavelet NR (Noise Reduction) system in the Venus Engine enables deliberate noise reduction process without missing low-frequency noise, and the Advanced Underwater Mode with Red Colour Reproduction compensates for the red colour which is easily lost in underwater shooting.

28mm Wide-angle Lens

16.1 Megapixel MOS Sensor
The new 16.1MP High Sensitivity MOS sensor realizes both high quality image recording and high speed signal processing. In addition, the Wavelet NR (Noise Reduction) system in the Venus Engine enables deliberate noise reduction process without missing low-frequency noise by enlarging its detection area by approx.64x. It results in the high sensitivity image recording even at ISO3200.

Venus Engine
The DMC-FT5's Venus Engine processes large amount of progressive full HD data at high speed. At the same time, the multi-task image-processing engine, the Venus Engine realizes a super-fast response time.
