Panasonic HX-A100 Wearable Camcorder

Panasonic HX-A100

Panasonic announced the HX-A100, a point-of-view, active lifestyle wearable camcorder, designed to let users easily capture and share images of everyday life such as sports and events.

The compact, lightweight design of the A100 makes it comfortable to wear. By setting the camera on the included Earhook, users can enjoy hands-free shooting without a helmet. A Multi-Mount option is also available for mounting the camera to a helmet or backpack. The waterproof design enables even greater shooting freedom in situations where the camera might get wet.

Another feature of the camera is its built-in Wi-Fi functions, which allows users to broadcast live video with simultaneous Full-HD recording. It also makes it easy to upload recorded images to SNS using a smartphone or tablet.

Despite its compact size and lightweight design, the A100 achieves excellent image quality. Featuring a host of image-enhancing technologies, including a bright F2.5 lens, the BSI Sensor, and Advanced Image Processing LSI, this wearable camera captures clear, low-noise images in both bright and dim lighting situations. It also minimizes shooting mistakes, with an Image Stabilizer to suppress blurring, and a Level Shot function to automatically correct tilted images.

The A100 also offers a large number of advantages that are made possible by Panasonic’s long history of camcorder development. This is what makes it possible to shoot and share images with the user’s precise line-of-sight perspective for special events, sports activities, and everyday situations.
