Summary: Solid purchase for the holiday season. The unit itself is light weight and good for pockets or other easy storage spaces. Havent figured out all the bells and whistles yet but recording is very clear. Manual is a bit long.
Good Camcorder for outdoor use, no good for indor use with pour ligth

Summary: I already proved the waterproof quality and camera worked good. The image quality is good a day light but is not good for indoor use with low light conditions. Camera is easy to use, even with one hand, light and portable.
Summary: I like the compact size. Filming is easy. Picture taking took a little practice - it was hard to push the shutter button, but I got the hang of it and pictures turned out great. I still like carrying my point and shoot with me, too. Always carry a backup for trips!
Summary: This is a pretty good camera. Takes great HD videos and works well underwater. Takes good still photos as well. Biggest draw back is the controls are not easy to operate and are too close together.
Summary: I have had a Xacti Sanyo camera and it was wonderful. But the screen on it messed up as did my daughter-in-laws, same problem. So I started looking around for a replacement. I saw and read about the Panasonic HX-WA2 Waterproof Full HD Camcorder and it fit my budget and everything I needed.
Summary: Very versatile camera, and the speed-shot feature works pretty well, though I haven't used it enough to become really good at it. The video does a nice job as well. This isn't a Canon Rebel, but it's also a lot cheaper. The design is useful also, I can shoot from my bicycle.
Great camcorder. Excellent quality and the portability is fantastic ...

Summary: Great camcorder. Excellent quality and the portability is fantastic for sightseeing. Fits in your pocket like a phone rather than lugging around, and it is instantly on as you fold out the screen so good for catching those fleeting moments. The camera is surprisingly good as well.
