About the A500
Panasonic’s HX-A500 is the world’s first 4K/30p (25p) Wearable Camera and enables you to shoot scenes that put viewers right there, in the thick of the action.
The main unit is separate from the lens unit, meaning you can mount the lens at face level and carry out hands-free shooting. Small and lightweight, the lens unit is comfortable to wear, making it easy to shoot casual sports action or to capture the expressions of your family at play.
HX-A500 features gorgeous 4K/30p (25p) image quality, allowing you to capture beautiful images with heightened realism. With new Lens, the new BSI sensor and Crystal Engine Pro+, you can now enjoy clean and clear low-noise images. HX-A500 comes as standard with the newly designed main unit with an LCD and other features that improves operability. Via your smartphone or tablet, you can also quickly and easily upload your video to the Web.
