Summary: We were in NZ last year (Xmas 2011) and grabbed another SD card camera which was sub-par and did not work well. So back to the store we went and grabbed this beauty. It has been flawless..used at the beach, in the water, on a 10 day rafting trip recently down the Green to the Colorado river..
Summary: So all and all I like the Panasonic HX-WA10K, it offers a wide range of options and shoots good quality, however auto HDMI always outputs 1080i even if video is 720P and the menu's can be frustrating mainly because the controls are stationary where the viewfinder can rotate meaning you sometimes...

Excerpt: My family is in love with capturing the moment and when it comes to capturing the moment, I am all for it. I have invested in tons of different camcorders in my time and one of the is the Panasonic Digital Camcorder. The only reason why I bought this …
Summary: I have used this camera whilst wet canyoning. It has handled extremes of temperatures and jumping from as high as 18 meters into water (handled the jump better than I did). It has been just fine, doing what was asked of it.
