Product description

Product Description

Panasonic HX-WA30
Specifically designed for single-handed use (model shown is WA30)

Panasonic HX-WA30 Camcorder--Wi-Fi Enabled with a Quad-proof Tough Design for Reliable Shooting in Harsh Conditions

Perfect for the adventurous shooter, the all-singing, all-dancing waterproof, shockproof, freezeproof and dustproof WA30 with built-in Wi-Fi is a small camcorder with some big attitude.

Ergonomic Upright Design for Vertical Style Shooting

Specifically designed for single-handed use, the vertical style of shooting with this camcorder and unique grip minimises fatigue. Easily held with one hand, the essential controls are ergonomically placed within easy reach.

Panasonic HX-WA30
Designed for tough active outdoor shooting
Rugged Features - 10m Water Proof, -10 Freeze Proof, 1.5m Shock Proof, Dust Proof

The WA30 is designed for tough active outdoor shooting. Whether it's snorkelling, snowboarding or just adventure holidaying, the ruggedised build quality of this high definition camcorder easily goes places no ordinary video camera can go.

Smart Sharing features with Built in Wi-Fi

We are in an exciting new era of Wi-Fi enabled devices. Offering amazing new functionality, previously unavailable to camcorders, that brings a whole new level of convenient control. Features like: Remote Monitor and Shooting, Remote Browsing and Remote Sharing.

Panasonic HX-WA30
Control remotely from Smartphone or Tablet device
Remote Monitoring & Shooting Control with Smartphone

Using the "Peer to Peer" or Wi-Fi function in the camcorder, the picture and sound can be monitored externally and controlled remotely by the connected smart device.

Remote Browsing & Streaming Playback via DLNA

If you have a compatible DLNA equipped smart TV or handheld device, you can browse and view your recordings directly over your wireless network. This means you no longer need to connect the camcorder to the TV with the AV cable or even take out the SD card and insert it in the TV. Just sit back with the family and enjoy the results of your video handy work wirelessly.

Remote Sharing - Social Network Site (SNS) Video Upload

Not only can you enjoy videos and still pictures remotely on your Smartphone, but you can also upload the content directly to your favourite Social Network sites like YouTube and Facebook. Now it's even easier to share your movies or photos with friends on your social network.

MP4 Full HD Video Recording Mode for High Compatibility

High Definition video including 1920x1080 can be shot at 30 Progressive frames per second. MP4 (H.264) format is compatible with many video editing software packages, but is also compatible with iTunes for playback on Smartphone or tablet devices.

iFrame Recording Mode for Compatibility with Apple Macintosh Software

iFrame is a recording format suitable for viewing or editing on Mac (iMovie’11). Using iMovie’11, iFrame motion pictures can be imported faster than AVCHD motion pictures. Also, the imported file size of iFrame motion pictures will be smaller than that of AVCHD motion pictures.

iA (Intelligent Auto) Shooting Mode

Perfect for video novices, iA mode lets you shoot the movie without you having to worry about what settings to use. The camera intelligently works out the type of scene that you are trying to capture. Whether it's a person's face, a dramatic landscape, or a night time shot. The most commonly used shooting scenarios are programmed in to the camera and the camera makes all the internal settings automatically, leaving you to just press the record button.

Panasonic HX-WA30
Shoot amazing slow-motion sequences in HD
High-speed Video Recording Mode for Super Slo-motion

HD video recording (1280x720) is available at 120 frames per second. This means when played back at normal speed (30fps) the action becomes 4x slower, which is very useful for creative slow-motion effects. At a lower resolution, 8x slower playback speed can be used which would be great for analysing a golf swing, for instance.

Panasonic HX-WA30
Shoot with imaginative creative video effects
12 Creative Filter Options for Video or Still Picture Shooting

To add an interesting new look to your videos or photos any one of 12 creative filter effects can be selected before taking your shot: Old Movie, Time-lapse, Ghost effect, Fish-eye effect, Sepia, HDR Paint, Soft Skin, Monochrome, Miniature, One-point Colour, Vivid and Soft Focus.

x18 Intelligent-zoom (Optical x5)

The WA series includes a clever combination of optical and digital technology to get you even closer to your subject. The powerful image processing engine means that a high quality image can be created from the zoom lens that is equivalent to an incredible 18x magnification (more than triple the optical zoom limit).

Active E.I.S. (Electronic Image Stabiliser)

The new Active E.I.S. helps stabilise your video and reduce handshake caused by videoing from a moving vehicle or walking.

16.0MP Still Picture Capture Mode

Digital Still pictures can be taken with this camcorder in two aspect ratios: 16:9 and 4:3. Depending on the aspect ratio chosen, images with a resolution up to 16 mega pixels can be taken. This is very useful as it means the camcorder can be used to take photos when you do not have a Digital Still Camera available.

Panasonic HX-WA30
Panorama shooting mode for wide sweeping panoramic still pictures
360 Degree Panoramic Still Picture Shooting Mode

With sweep panorama mode you can position yourself to take a 180/360 degree panoramic photo. By holding down the shutter button and slowly swivelling your hips or turning around, a beautiful panoramic sweeping image can be made. The camera takes pictures consecutively while you turn. When the shooting ends, consecutively shot images are joined together to produce a single panoramic picture.

Burst Shooting Mode (10fps @ 3MP)

One of the advantages of a MOS sensor is the incredibly fast read-out speed. High-speed still picture burst shooting, up to 10 frames per second at 3 mega-pixel resolution, is possible. This enables you to capture high speed action with a sequence of still pictures that are sharp and defined, even when it is difficult to keep the subject in the centre of the frame. You can review the images after you have captured the action and choose the best composed shot.

28 mm Wide Angle Shooting

Sometimes you want to video wide vistas or just fit a large group of people into the shot. This is where the 28 mm equivalent wide angle lens on board this camera comes into its own. Its wide angle of view allows more of your subject into the picture, which is great for videoing indoors or when you are limited for space and can't step back far enough to fit everything in.

2.6" 230K Pixels Wide LCD Screen

A high quality wide aspect Liquid Crystal Display is offered with a 6.7 cm/2.6 inch viewing area that works well in bright light due to the Auto Brightness sensor that automatically increases brightness by up to 40% when in sunny conditions.

2ch Stereo Mic and New Wind Canceller

A built-in stereo microphone means high quality Dolby encoded stereo sound can be recorded when using movie mode. And a new wind canceller reduces the wind noise coming into the built-in microphones while maintaining a realistic sound.

USB Charging Function

A USB AC adaptor is included in the box. This convenient accessory enables you to charge the battery inside the camera from any mains power outlet. It is compact and easy to carry around with you giving you a wide number of options to charge up the battery. Alternatively, you can use the supplied USB cable to charge the camera from a USB port on a computer, for example.
