Review: Panasonic HX-WA30 Camcorder


As camcorders Panasonic's HX-WA30 is a pretty funky looking unit and not your typical recording device.  It's made to be held in your hand with a grip-like stance so is uber portable and slim compared to some of its counterparts. The one we tested was...

Simple to use; good wifi features

Lack of storage; not too sure of the point of the screen being able to turn 180-degrees
