Panasonic has announced the launch of a new 4K action camera, the Panasonic HX-A500, which is a wearable Ultra HD camera that is capable of shooting 4K video.
The Panasonic HX-A500 comes with a 1.5 inch LCD display and can record 4K video at 25 frames per second, it is PIX8 certified, which means it can be submerged in up to 3M of water for up to 30 minutes.
Matt Evans, Camcorder Product Manager, Panasonic UK, said, “We’ve seen the action camcorder market grow year on year as people look to share their activities and capture the action in the best picture quality possible. 4K is the next step in video capture and when combined with the ability to use a point of view camcorder we begin to push the boundaries of videography. The HX-A500 has the benefit of a lightweight lens piece, just 31g, which means using it becomes unobtrusive and it adds no significant bulk or weight to the user. This is a key point when you consider that an action camcorder will be used during an activity, such as ski-ing or sailing, so the less weight, or size, the better the experience. The HX-A500 ensures the user takes unique and personal footage in the best quality possible.”
The Panasonic A500 action camera will go on sale in Europe in May, it will retail for £379.99 including taxes, you can find out more details at the link below.
