These days, brands like GoPro and Sony have released action cams with 4K capabilities on the market, making an ever harder mission for other brands to be successful. However, these action cams also have an expensive price, so those who are looking for a smaller cost will have a though mission.
Therefore, Panasonic has released their new action cam, called HX-A1. This new HD action cam is recommended for budget-minded buyers who are not willing to spend a high price on a camera.
So, the new Panasonic HX-A1 is available at the price of 199.99 dollars, which makes it half as much as GoPro’s action cam, which costs 399 dollars.
The new Panasonic HX-A1 is an affordable full-HD action cam that is perfect for budge buyers. This device is recommend for those who want to film in complete darkness, having 0 lux night vision mode, but requires users to bring their own infrared torch.
As for design, the new Panasonic HX-A1 weighs approximately 45 grams, having a completely cylindrical body. Moreover, this camera measures 8.4×2.6×2.6 centimeters. To be added that is has a 3.54-megapixel 1/3-inch MOS sensor that has the ability to offer full-HD video.
Another interesting thing about the new Panasonic HX-A1 is that it is rated to be waterproof down to approximately 1.5 meters. This is a good thing to know especially for those who are willing to go diving. To be added that this camera is also dustproof and the company claims that it is was created to survive drops of up to 1.5 meters. Moreover, it is freeze-proof to -10 degrees Celsius.
The new Panasonic HX-A1 records 29.97 frames per second by default in 848x640p, 720p and 1080p resolutions. However, probably that the main attraction on this camera is its night vision feature. The only thing that users have to do it to swap out the standard lens for the included “IR” lens, and to buy an infrared torch. Once these points are checked, the Panasonic HX-A1 has the ability to deliver true night-vision footage, which is very rare on the action-cam market.
