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.

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.
