The Panasonic HX-A500 is the world's first wearable camcorder in its video quality range (3820 x 2160 pixels). The camera part of the device can be worn on the head using a head-mount, while the LCD monitor -- useful for checking and reviewing shots on the go -- is nestled on an armband worn by the user. The camera portion weighs only 31 grams, making for a comfortable head-mount.
The Panasonic HX-A500's frame rate of 30/25 frames per second makes it superior to the most recent editions of GoPro cameras, which films at 15 frames per second. Its lens offers a 160 degree angle of view.
The HX-A500 is both waterproof and dust-proof, making it suitable for capturing footage of outdoor adventures.
