The Panasonic HX-A500, the first wearable Ultra HD 4K camcorder, is a water- and dustproof action camera that records 4K Ultra HD (3840 x 2160) video at 30p. The Panasonic A500 features two parts, a lipstick tube camera unit with a 160° ultra-wide lens, and a recording unit with a 1.5″ LCD screen. The camera system is designed so that you can attach the recording unit to a backpack or parachute strap, life vest, belt, or somewhere else readily accessible so you can monitor shots and control record start and stop. The camera unit weighs approximately an ounce, and can then be mounted on a headband, handlebars, or another perspective to best catch the action from.
