The Panasonic HX-A1ME is a tough, ultra-compact wearable camcorder which has been designed to endure any adventure. Well equipped to see in the dark, upload to social media sites and even use as a webcam, this camcorder is your ticket to freedom.
With 3.54 megapixels, 2.6mm focal length and minimum focusing distance of approximately 30cm, you'll be able to frame all the details you need, even up close. Even in fast moving scenes, the HX-A1 captures every detail. At 1280 x 720 pixel, the camera records at 60 fps. And at 848 x 480 pixel, it records at 120 fps.
When recording for longer than one hour, the loop recording mode will retain the most recent scenes by erasing those recorded earlier. The camera will then continue to record by managing video in two-minute segments.
Waterproof to depths of 1.5 metres, shockproof against drops from 1.5 metres, freezeproof down to -10 degrees and dustproof, the camcorder is the ideal choice for shooting in any environment. Built-in Wi-Fi Using the Panasonic Image app on a Smartphone or tablet, you'll be able to check the camcorders shooting angle. You can also share your best shots on social media sites including Facebook, YouTube and Flickr.
Built-in Wi-Fi also enables you to connect to any Panasonic camcorder for viewing and combined recording in a sub-window. This means that you can combine different subjects into one video, or capture the same subject from different angles, to add your own unique take. Better still, the HX-A1 can be used as a computer webcam when connected via USB. Just use the head mount to share the sights.
Ready for night-time - Working with an IR light (available separately) and the Glasscover (night mode), the camcorder will be able to pick up nocturnal wildlife. So whether getting caught out in the dark was intended, or not, you'll still be able to shoot incredibly detailed frames. Compact and lightweight Weighing in at just 45g, the HX-A1ME is ultra-lightweight. And with its cylindrical shape, the camera can be worn in many positions to suit your shooting style or environment.
