New Panasonic Waterproof Camcorder
By Joseph Tepper, January 13, 2012 @ 12:32 PM (EST)

Snorkelers and swimmers who refuse to get in the water without capturing their swim in high-quality video or 14 MP still images are sure to be aquiver with the announcement of Panasonic’s new waterproof camcorder.

The HX-WA2 offers high-quality video recording and the ability to shoot 14 MP images down to 10 feet, making it attractive to the casual snorkeler. More adventurous shooters can also try out the camera’s Panorama mode, which automatically combines a series of images while panning.


“The resilient, waterproof design allows users to experiment with shots in rainy conditions and even underwater,” said Chris Rice, Senior Product Manager, Imaging, Panasonic Consumer Marketing Company of North America.  “By enabling both video and still picture recording, users can enjoy enhanced features for capturing crisp, clear memories.”

More details on pricing and availability are expected approximately one month before the HX-WA2 begins to ship.
