Panasonic Lumix FT10 hoping to be Re-united with Owner!
Panasonic Lumix Tough FT10 Compact Digital Camera survives seven days lost at sea (Below 10m of water!)
Help re-unite a Camera Found at the Bottom of the Hawksbury River with its Owner!
Adam Biro, a Fairfield East fisherman has stumbled across a lost camera while fishing one of Australia's largest rivers in NSW. The Panasonic Tough Lumix FT10 has spent an entire week at the bottom of the Hawkesbury River submerged beneath 10 metres of murky water.
This camera has lived up to its' 'Tough' reputation as testing revealed the camera to still be in working order! As a result Adam, in conjunction with Panasonic is seeking to re-unite the camera with its' rightful owner. Data was able to be retrieved from the item due to its waterproof body and incredible exterior protection including the recovery of 750 images contained on the camera. Some of these can be viewed in the Flickr Gallery HERE.
In an attempt to identify the owner and get the camera back in their possession, Panasonic is conducting an extensive online search through their social media channels, including Facebook, Twitter (#LostFT10) and YouTube. If you are the owner, or happen to know the owner please email
Adam was quoted as saying:
“I was pretty shocked when I pulled in the line and there was a camera on the end of it. I’ve caught plenty of different things in the past – but this is pretty unusual by any stretch...”
“There are obviously a lot of memories on that camera and I’d hate to think someone could have lost them all.”
This story is a testament that the stylish design of the DMC-FT10 hides a truly tough digital camera, built for capturing amazing photos and HD movies in conditions that conventional cameras would never endure.
The 14.1 megapixel DMC-FT10 includes an advanced 4x optical zoom lens with revolutionary folded optics to fit in the flat body. Waterproof to three metres (though in this case surviving at 10m), freeze-proof to -10 degrees, shockproof up to 1.5 metres and dust-proof, this is the compact camera that can keep up with your every adventure.
Just remember not to leave it behind!
