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

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

Panasonic HX-WA10

 

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.
