Panasonic HX-A500, the first 4K 30p wearable camera in the world
Wearable cameras are mainly meant for those who have a taste for adventure – especially when you are bungee jumping down from a particularly high ravine or tower, or shooting the rapids with the rest of your mates. Since a picture speaks a thousand words, and videos would be able to better describe your experience to others compared to the lack of adjectives in your storytelling, how about getting an all action wearable camera? Panasonic has got your back with the Panasonic HX-A500, and what makes this particular device so special is the fact that the Panasonic HX-A500 is also the world’s first 4K 30p wearable camera.
The Panasonic HX-A500 will come with integrated Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity which will be able to hook up to your smartphone, offering incredible image quality and straightforward functionality. With the HX-A500, one will be able to capture the scene where you would want your viewers to enjoy – in the right here and now.
The main unit will be separate from the lens unit, which means one is able to mount the lens at face level while performing hands-free shooting. It comes in a small and lightweight form factor, where the lens unit is also comfortable to wear, making it a snap to capture point of view sports or your daily adventure.
Apart from that, the main attraction of the HX-A500 would be its gorgeous 4 K/30p image quality that enables one to capture beautiful video with heightened realism. It has a powerful lens, sensor and engine, letting one enjoy clean and clear low-noise video. In addition, this device also has an LCD and other features which will further improve operability.
Importantly enough, the HX-A500 will be both waterproof and dustproof, allowing you to go underwater for up to 30 minutes in nearly 10 feet of water, and is also dustproof so that you will be able to shoot video in all kinds of sports and leisure situations without the need for a special housing. Looks like the GoPro range of cameras have a serious competitor on their hands!
