Panasonic Launches New Line of Camcorders, Several of them Waterproof
"Panasonic today announced the release of the new waterproof Full-HD Camcorder HX-WA10, which allows easy, effortless photo and video shooting. The WA10 is also optimized for shooting outdoors and in rainy weather. It captures stunning, detailed images with Full-HD 1920 x 1080 resolution, thanks to Backside Illumination (BSI) technology for shooting in dimly lit conditions, and 16-megapixel still image recording with top-class digital camera quality. This lets users easily enjoy authentic HD shooting in a wide range of situations."
Engadget has the breakdown of all the products, but the one that interests me the most is the HM-TA20 (pictured above right). I've been looking for a new Flip-style camera and the fact that this one is waterproof to 15 feet and dust-proof is quite appealing. I like that it has a three inch screen - my Flip Mino's screen is so tiny it's kind of ridiculous.
