Panasonic India has introduced a rugged action camera capable of surviving in extreme conditions – The HX-A1 (which certainly looks weird) for 19,990 INR. This compact camera weighs just 45 grams and is waterproof and shockproof to 1.5 Meters, dustproof and even freeze proof till -10 degree Celsius.
The camera can capture 1080p videos at 30fps, and 720p Slow motion videos at 60fps and 480p slowmotion vids at 120FPS.
The HX-A1 has a 0 lux light mode, an IR filer and can be used with an infrared light source. It also includes loop recording, which means if you exceed storage limits, the camera will make room for more by deleting the earliest stored files. The Wi-Fi wearable camera can be mounted to a Multi Mount onto goggles, shoulder bags or helmets or onto a tripod using a Tripod Mount. You can also buy accessories like handlebar mount, extended battery, twin mount for a light source, clip mount and head mount.
Speaking on the occasion Mr. Mr. Gaurav Ghavri, Product Head, Panasonic India, said, “Panasonic India has made a sustained effort to grow in the market by offering our innovative and technologically advanced products to cater to the ever evolving customer needs in the camera segment. The introduction of HX-A1 wearable camera defines Panasonic’s unrelenting pursuit of providing unmatched experience creating excitement in the action camera market. “
