Panasonic cameras and memory cards pick up prestigious global industry awards


Panasonic’s camera range has long been recognised for its excellence, from picture quality to advanced functionality through to gorgeous design, all of which allow photographers of any ability to capture stunning pictures every time.

Now, Panasonic is thrilled to have been awarded three prestigious 2013 Technical Image Press Association (TIPA) awards, widely recognised as one of the most coveted photo and imaging accolades around the world. The LUMIX DMC-GH3 has been awarded ‘Best CSC Professional’, the LUMIX DMC-FT5 achieved ‘Best Rugged Compact Camera’, while Panasonic’s SDHC Gold, Silver and Blue series memory cards were recognised with ‘Best Imaging Storage Media’.

The LUMIX DMC-GH3 is a camera for serious photographers who want to take their professional videography to the next level with a portable interchangeable lens camera. A TIPA jury spokesman highlighted some of the many impressive specs of the camera like 16MP Live MOS sensor which boasts sensitivity up to ISO 12,800 with +1EV push capability, sophisticated noise filtration and suppression and a newly designed low-pass filter for enhanced low light shooting results. Improved AF performance was also noted along with faster start-up and shorter shutter time lag.

The LUMIX DMC-FT5, a camera for photographers who demand the ultimate in rugged still and video shooting, impressed the TIPA jury for many reasons. The fact that it is waterproof to a depth of 13 metres, shockproof from a height of 2 metres, pressure resistant to 100kg and freeze-proof to -10C, all helped the camera earn the ‘Best Rugged Compact Camera’ award.

Meanwhile, the SDHC Gold, Silver and Blue series memory cards scooped the ‘Best Imaging Storage Media’ award due to their “ability to exactly match their budget and camera with their memory card usage and needs”, according to a TIPA jury spokesperson.

With the backing of the highly respected Technical Image Press Association, you can feel confident that the LUMIX DMC-GH3, LUMIX DMC-FT5 and SDHC Gold, Silver and Blue series memory cards will deliver incredible results every time.
