[CES 2012] Yesterday, Panasonic announced their HX-WA2 waterproof camcorder, and what better way to demonstrate it than to drop a couple of them into a bubbling aquarium and make sure that it still runs just fine? Of course, the aquarium at Panasonic’s booth on the showfloor is nowhere near the 3 meter depth limit that the Panasonic HX-WA2 waterproof camcorder is capable of, but it just goes to show that it can last the distance. Most waterproof devices can remain submerged only for so long (or at least that is what the user manual tells us), making me wonder whether the Panasonic staff manning this section will periodically remove the HX-WA2 inside and replace them with new ones. Still no word from the staff there on how much it will cost when available, but at least it is living proof that it can survive underwater. Would be nice to see some guppies swimming inside the aquarium for a little bit of color though. Check out a couple more pics of the HX-WA2 in the extended post.
