Despite its ultra-compact and lightweight body (approx. 45 g), the HX-A1 is designed to withstand severe environments. With its unique shape, this cylindrical camera can be worn in many positions to suit a variety of shooting environments and conditions.

● Shoot at depths of down to 1.5 m in water without a case (IPX8 compliant)
● Tough against shock and drops of up to 1.5 m (MIL-STD810F Method 516.5-Shock compliant)

0 Lux Night Mode
Using an IR light and Glasscover (Night mode), adventure enthusiasts won't miss anything in the dark, even nocturnal wildlife in the depths of a forest.
The camera size and weight are so light that it's comfortable to wear even with a heavy headlight.
The Panasonic Image App can be used to check angles and viewpoint on smartphones or tablets before shooting. Images can then be uploaded to photo-posting websites or social media.
Wireless Twin Camera Function
While recording, footage from the HX-A1M can be sent to a sub-window on a Panasonic camcorder (released in 2015) via Wi-Fi. It is then combined with the main picture shot by the camcorder, allowing users to merge two simultaneously recorded videos into one. With this feature, it’s possible to combine multiple subjects in one video or combine the same subject viewed from different angles.
You can also use the HX-A1M as a computer webcam when connected via USB. Using a
Head Mount, you can share the sights you have seen with your friends.
Slow Motion Video
The HX-A1M captures every detail, even in fast-moving scenes. At 1280 x 720 pixels, the camera records at 60 fps (double the normal frame rate), and at 848 x 480 pixels, at 120 fps (quadruple-speed).
When recording for longer than one hour, loop recording mode retains the most recent scenes by erasing
earlier scenes. The camera keeps recording seamlessly by managing video in two-minute segments.
