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...
Summary: I tried various normal camcorders as well as the upright versions and I opted to buy an upright type. I had originally looked at the Sanyo range and then realised they had been bought out by Panasonic who brought out their own range.
Summary: Swift delivery, arriving the next day after order placed. Having used the camera for a few weeks, I am very happy with my purchase. Overall quality of both video and stills is very acceptable. I basically wanted a dual camera for holidays, one that was preferably waterproof too.
Summary: Early impressions of the Camcorder are excellent. Although it's actually water proof I just wanted it to be rain proof. It's easy to use but I find the buttons to record and take stills not ideal being above your thumb.
Summary: I was looking for a decent stills camera for my hols, saw this on one of those TV gadget shows and thought it would be ideal. Initially, I didn't realize it was predominantly a video camera, but my main want was something that worked well underwater as I wanted to take photo's while snorkelling.
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.
Summary: This is a great little camera which has a lot of functions and produces good quality video and images for the money. The only downside are the menu controls which can be a bit fiddly but this is a by product of the fact that they have been designed to be waterproof.
Summary: Delivered on time this camera is easy to use with excellent features. I have only two reservations/niggles, one is that zoom speed is not adjustable and the other is the button for stills is awkward to operate.
