Liked it so much, I bought it twice,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Panasonic HX-WA10 HD Camcorder - Blue (16MP Stills, 1920x1080, 5x Optical Zoom, BSI Sensor) 2.7-inch LCD (Electronics)
I bought this as a replacement for a lost waterproof camcorder, traditional shape.
I've owned this for over a year, and here's my review.
Waterproof: definitely, yes. I've used it at the base of both Iguazu Falls and Niagara Falls, getting completely sprayed with water and it's flawless. I've used it underwater and it was terrific.
Ease of use: yes. Easy to use as a camcorder, though I sometimes find myself move the screen when I really need to move the camera. Easy to use as a camera as well, though it seems to take a few too many seconds to capture the picture.
I bought this twice because it is so light and small that I managed to leave it in the pocket of my robe on a cruise ship & assumed that it was gone for good. So, I bought a replacement. Then, the cruise company found it in the laundry room, in perfect working condition, and shipped the original to me. So, I now have 2.
I suppose if I was completely honest, I miss having a photo camera that is a traditional camera shape. But, that's not a flaw in the Panasonic HX-WA10, that's my own issue.
