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

Overall, we're mightily impressed by the HX-WA10. You're paying something of a premium for the waterproofing features, but we'd say they're worth it. It's safe underwater, it's easy to use and it produces some excellent video. We do recommend investing...

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

With its upright format, the WA10 is intended to be held a bit like a gun. However, you don't operate it using your index finger. Instead, the primary functions are accessed using your thumb and an array of buttons on the back behind the lens. Here,...

As long as you're not expecting top-notch performance, the Panasonic HX-WA10 is a cool looking, easy to use camcorder that doesn't mind being splashed with water and doesn't cost the Earth.

Smart design ; Easy to use ; Cheap ; Waterproof to 3 metres

Awkward controls ; Memory card slot positioned under the battery ; Some unpredictable colours and other picture quality issues

If you're gunning for glory, picture quality-wise, then Panasonic's HX-WA10 will probably fall short of your expectations. What we would say, though, is that the HX-WA10 is fantastically easy to use. Operation boils down to two main buttons -- the one...

If picture quality is more important than usability, this is a winner

Panasonic HX-WA10 – full HD 1080pWaterproof camcorders are ideal for outdoorsy types who want to capture videos while out in the wild without the worry of their precious gadgets getting damaged, but

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.
