Panasonic HX-WA3 review


Shoots on the beach or up a mountain

Can offer detailed video ; Great battery life ; Waterproof and dustproof ; Handles motion brilliantly

Images can be a bit soft ; Image stabilisation can cause blurring ; Not super-ergonomic ; Big digital zoom no replacement for optical

If image quality was all that mattered here, we might give the Panasonic HX-WA3 a lower score than this. But context is vital, and the Panasonic HX-WA3 as a holiday package really stands out.

Panasonic HX-WA3


A waterproof, dustproof and freezeproof camcorder that takes great footage

Commendable image quality ; Waterproof to 5m, dustproof and freezeproof ; Creative settings ; Non-optical image stabilisation

Fewer manual settings than mainstream Panasonic camcorders ; Zoom divided into two portions

As with the WA2, the waterproofing is excellent, and this is one area where the Panasonic HX-WA3 shows marked improvement. Thanks to the double-locking door covering the SD card slot, battery, micro USB and micro HDMI ports, the WA3 is even tougher...
