Useful for certain shots

  • Excerpt: The only video cam I could find that sends wi-fi to my smartphone while the camera is underwater. You control from your smartphone screen, and choose between wide and extreme wide angle. Good image quality, but not stylish enough to wear. When too close to the smartphone, mic feedback occurs.
  • Pros: Great Picture Quality, Wi-fi Signal Underwater, Wi-fi While Underwater
  • Cons: Camera Module Is Big

Good review!

  • Excerpt: Bought the Panasonic HX-A100 for my boyfriend! He absolutely loved it! I was also impressed by it to. The only thing is it has a delay response. For example while recording from the camcorder and viewing it from your phone live through an app there's a 2 second delay.

This is so complicated to use. I wish I ...

  • Summary: This is so complicated to use. I wish I had sent it back. I kept thinking it would get easier, but it didn't. I'm sure there are easier ones to use. The quality of the video is acceptable. I just wish it wasn't so complicated to use and I'm technologically adept.

The design does not work well.

honest input

  • Summary: Only semi major issue with camera is doing live streams while mobile. Other than that, performs very well and handles the bar life style that I put it through every weekend. Only wish is that battery lasted a bit longer.

Really needs some horizontal stabilizing programming.

Western Lady, Amazon
11 August 2014
  • Summary: Good things - compact, great image recording, definitely waterproof Bad things - ear mount is painful to wear and cheap, adjusting the camera to keep horizontal perspective is a nightmare, you can end up recording everything at a tilt

Great for unusual uses: filming plays, birds in nests, and model rockets

The Crank, Amazon
26 June 2014
  • Summary: I have been using this camera for about 9 months now. My primary uses are filming grade school plays, and taking slow motion video of my children's hobbies (launching model rockets). I am quite satisfied with the camera. I am the "official" videographer for our local elementary school.
