Summary: The fulfilment of my order was both very efficient and fast , whilst the camcorder itself embraces all the atributes that you are likely to need and saves you having to carry an extra high resolution stills camera .
Summary: I thought I had ordered the variant that allows high frame-speed shooting and wi fi connectivity. It turns out I hadn't (the one I wanted has an extra letter at the end of its technical name) which strikes me as a particularly daft piece of marketing. The camera is a competent all-rounder.
Summary: So far seems simple and intuitive to operate plus it offers lots of features. Havn't yet been brave enough to try it underwater. The camera case as part of the deal is too big, so I've got a new belt pouch for it.
Summary: I did a lot of research on active camcorders to find out which was the best for me, and settled on the WA3. However, reading the detail in the downloadable manual, I found out that "the integrity of the rubber [waterproofing] seals may decrease after about 1 year, with use and age. To avoid permanently damaging this unit, we recommend you to replace the seals once each year.
Summary: I needed a camcorder that provided easy use, non-threatening appearance, and the ability to snap decent still pictures as well. This device delivers on all of these and much more. The scene modes are very useful, the image stabilisation, while only digital, is very impressive, as is the option of a digital zoom, after the optical 5x zoom and these do not reduce picture quality as far as I can see.
The Camera does very well for the cost, and is somewhat easy to operate, with a good quility picture.

Summary: I also have a Sony NEC 7, which take very good pictures, but the HX can be carry where ever one wants to go without worrying about damages that could occoure, dropping which is a no-no for any camera.The HX is will put togther and is water tight, easy to operate and takes very good video and stills. Good job Panasonic, at a resonable cost.
Summary: sconsiglio acquisto...obiettivo bassa qualità....autofocus quasi inesistente...immagine non nitida sfoca facilmente al minimo cambiamento di luce e di movimento...con luce diversa del giorno sgrana.....ma che full hd...un sogno...
