Panasonic HX-WA20 HD Camcorder review

 

Image quality isn't up there with the rest of Panasonic's camcorder range, but the HX-WA20 is a well-designed sports camera which is great for underwater footage

Lightweight, good picture quality. Not been used underwater yet

Very poor battery life. Filmed for about 20 mins and also took about 30 photo s then battery died. Purchased 2 extra (more powerful) batteries for the device.

Panasonic HX-WA20

 

Fast start with when the screen door is open so you don't miss a shot. The slow mo is excellent. Still image is good and has a good wide angle. Good flash for a small unit. Good for left handers as well.

Controls are a bit difficult if wearing gloves. It's easy to pick the wrong option if your not paying attention.
