Panasonic HX-A1 review:

 

With 4K capability being pushed by Sony and GoPro in their top-of-the-line cameras, HD action cams like the Panasonic HX-A1 compete for budget-minded buyers. The A1 is an affordable full-HD action cam selling for $199.99, £179.99 or AU$299. The A1...

The Panasonic HX-A1 is a super-light and compact action cam. Out-of-the-box night-vision makes it the only action cam for shooting in total darkness. An included adapter for use with GoPro mounts gives buyers accessory options.

The HX-A1's size and price offer a decent option for buyers, but there are better choices.
