Panasonic HX-WA10 review

 

Will waterproofing and Full HD recording combine to make the ultimate consumer camcorder?

Great 1080p images ; Excellent iA imaging system ; Solid waterproofing ; Slow-motion recording

Some wobbling in stabilisation ; Wide shots can be a bit soft

The snappily titled HX-WA10 is one of Panasonic's first forays into pistol-style camcorders. These were once Sanyo's bread and butter as part of its Xacti line, but the company was bought by Panasonic several years ago, resulting in the HX-WA10 and its...

Panasonic's HX-WA10 provides a welcome return to the upright camcorder format, and it's waterproof, too!

Dependable waterproofing, Good video quality in low light, Optical zoom

D-pad can be fiddly, No shockproof rating, More expensive than pocket Internet models

The WA10 is one of the best waterproof camcorders we've tested, aside from its ergonomics.

Very good image and video quality for a small camcorder ; Tilting and rotating LCD screen

Image stabilisation a little twitchy ; Pistol grip ergonomics may be tricky for small hands ; Can have difficulty autofocusing when using the zoom

The WA10 is one of the best waterproof camcorders we've tested, aside from its ergonomics. The HX-DC1 camcorder offers a similarly configured package for AU$299, without the waterproofing.

Good size for carrying and for use. fast flash recharge for taking pictures rapidly in the dark/low light. Looks fantastic Well built nice zoom(once you work them out) good price water proof film and take 2m pics at the same time

iA mode is not so good, even when it gets the setting mode right its still not as good as manually changing it (This is most noticed in low light and under cloud and in water, don not recommend using iA for filming, fine for pics) there is no 5mp 8mp...
