Panasonic HX-A500 action camera review


Panasonic is tackling the action camera and wearable trend in one go, with its HX-A500 action camera - the follow-up to 2013's HX-A100.

Good quality video, good quality audio, comfortable to wear, easy to control, 4K/25p capture, water resistant without extra casing

Two-piece design might present limitations, battery isn't changable - needs to be plugged in to charge, high cost compared to rivals

Panasonic HX-A500E


The first action camera we have tested that can shoot 4K at 25fps

Shoots 4K at 25fps ; Waterproof and dustproof ; WiFi control via iOS and Android apps

Fixed lens ; Wide field of view causes image distortion

The Panasonic HX-A500E lays down the gauntlet to GoPro, with capable 4K shooting in a rugged, feature-rich action camera format.
