[CES 2013] When it comes to camcorders, you know that these are extremely sensitive equipment, and most consumer electronics products are loathe to come into contact with water. However, the rugged Panasonic HX-WA03 camcorder begs to differ, delivering Full HD video recording capability even when it is raining or if you are going whitewater rafting, all made possible thanks to its waterproof design.
It is said that the Panasonic HX-WA03 is waterproof down to 16 feet, dustproof, and heck, why not go all the way and make sure it is also able to withstand bitter cold during the winter season by being freeze proof down to 14°F? Thanks to its robust design, it is possible to shoot video or photos in even harsher environments. Of course, being waterproof does not mean indefinitely, it will be able to sleep with the fishes for up to an hour at most, but that is still 60 minutes longer than your vanilla camcorder. Other features include the ability to capture 16-megapixel stills, creative control for versatile digital expression, an intelligent 18x zoom with New Active Digital Image Stabilizer, and being Eye-Fi Compatible.
