Is it really waterproof? NO!!!! Don't but it!

Derik, Amazon
16 December 2013
  • Summary: We've had this camera for about two and half years. Paid top dollar for it, thought it was the best purchase I ever made. Last year we took it with us on a houseboating trip and it stopped working due to it's lack of waterproofing. Dried it out and it worked okay until we took it to the beach, now it doesn't work at all. I've gone from loving the camera to regreting having forked out so much money for it.

Water Proof ?

Alex, Amazon

  • Summary: The camera is very good. The image is very good, sharp, really good. But, waterproof ? Really ? Do not feel like Bozo, after trying to use it under water. I will send this back. Panasonic is trying to deceive people. It is a shame !

DO NOT BUY THIS CAMERA!

MusicTechGuy, Amazon
21 October 2013
  • Summary: There is a reason this camera only comes with a 90-day warranty! If it lasts that long, it will be a miracle. Just weeks after our 3 months was up, the camera stopped working. It will not power up! It will not recharge! Basically it is dead in the box. Panasonic will happily REPAIR the camera for you for $90. That's right - after it dies in less than 6 months, they will happily charge you another $90 to FIX something that was probably wrong when it was manufactured!

Your Phone takes better pictures

Vincent Suppa, Amazon
29 August 2013
  • Summary: I am very disjointed with this camera. I thought the flip out feature would be cool and make it easier to take pictures, instead it just does the opposite. The glare is so bad that you can't see what you are taking pictures of. Often I press down what used to be called a shutter release button and it doesn't take a picture. The picture quality is very disappointing as well.

Poor waterproofing. Bad design. Difficult to use. Auto functions don't always work.

Kyle, Amazon

  • Summary: My previous waterproof cameras merely required a quick rinse under a faucet and a toweling, before they were safe to open. According to the manual, this camera must be shaken in a special way, and then leaned against something to keep it upright for an unspecified time, to allow water to drain from its waterproof shell. The manual doesn't say how to deal with sediment and minerals eventually clogging the drain holes, allowing it to drain into the interior when opened.

  • Excerpt: В Москве нет родных аккумуляторов к камере Panasonic HX-WA2. Ехать в отпуск с одним как то не удобно.
  • Pros: Только купил камеру, приеду из отпуска напишу впечатления от съемки под водой, для которой она и приобреталась. Предварительно: - хорошая система стабилизации, несколько уровней ее. Реально очень удобно. - при просмотре видео можно делать фотографии из видео. - в комплекте идет зарядное устройство для аккумулятора, это удобнее чем зарядка через камеру.
  • Cons: В камере не нашел способа удаления видео, удаление фото есть. Странно, видимо только на ПК можно с карты видео удалять. Дополнение после 1 месяца использования: Брал камеру в отпуск, поснимал (сноркал), вернулся слил фото и видео уже дома и через день после этого камера накрылась. Постоянно выводит сообщение о необходимости ресета. Отдал в сервис центр Panasonic и получил отказ от них - внутрь попала вода, гарантийного ремонта не будет. Превосходно... После последнего...
