Introducing the HX-A500 action camcorder with 4K recording. The HX-A500 allows clear 4K video with 25 frames per second capability meaning smoother action. Capture exactly what you see with this world's first 4K/25p wearable camcorder. Lightweight and hands-free allows you to be involved in the action, record the memory and then share it with the world.
Two-piece design that enables easy operation but also a lightweight lens piece. Weighing only 33g you can place the lens piece on helmets, goggles, chest harnesses, bike handles and others places to capture all the action without adding the bulk.
Clear and smooth 4K videos with 25fps - means all the action you record is played back without blur and in high detail.
Easy To Use
HX-A500 comes with an LCD on the main unit allowing you to check your movies on location but also change the settings of the camcorder. Easy to operate using the joystick and easy press buttons.
The HX-A500 will detect and adjust for shaking during recording using the built in Electric Image Stabiliser, ensuring your video shows the action but none of the shake.
Just been enjoying the thrill of a life but accidentally knocked your helmet from being straight. The HX-A500 uses level shot to automatically adjust the horizon of your recording to ensure there are no slanted landscapes in your movies.
Not only does the HX-A500 have Wi-Fi capability for remote control shooting or live streaming, but it also boasts an NFC connection. NFC allows you to instantly connect to an NFC compatible tablet with just a tap of the HX-A500 against the tablet - no need to enter details in menus anymore.
Essential for real-time broadcasting of your action, it allows you via a Wi-Fi connection, to stream to Ustream so others around the world can log in and watch you take to the slopes.

I'll try it on different settings, once I've set it up with my smart phone (if that will work - I've read too many reviews saying it doesn't - I'll leave judgment until I've tried it myself). But, straight out of the box, and recording to the card (32 GB MicroHD HC I Class 10), there are a lot of problems. It fudges complicated areas, they just turn into a blur. Even in bright sunlight, the image is grainy and pixelated, it can't cope with rapid movements. Thankfully I didn't pay the recommended retail price, if I had, there'd be a lawsuit!
To be honest, I'm disappointed. I would have thought Panasonic could have done better than this!
I'm not a hard core extreme sports kind of user, but I do a bit of canyoning climbing mb ing etc, but really got this to be able to archive some inter-generational family events with the kids and grandparents.
Conventional camcorders would be way too intrusive. Where as this little baby with its corded lens barrel is really versatile and discrete and the ultra wide pov is great for sucking in the whole scene without having to worry about exact positioning - it will capture everything.
It is a little bit fisheye around the edges but.......... because the 4k resolution is so phenomenal, it is very easy to crop this out without losing any detail. And the large sensor has delighted me with its low light capability.
And it is weatherproof and so easy to control with my android phone and I can also use it as a networked camera to remotely monitor the home if I wanted to.
But what I love the most is the 4k resolution - even though I only have hd tv and monitors - the detail and resolution (and low performance) all look way better than previous hd pocket cams.
The mountings are rubbish but if i feel the need to strap this on to the front fork of my mountain bike then I'm sure duct tape and velcro will do nicely.
