Panasonic HX-WA10

 

The WA10 is one of the best waterproof camcorders we've tested, aside from its ergonomics.

Very good image and video quality for a small camcorder ; Tilting and rotating LCD screen

Image stabilisation a little twitchy ; Pistol grip ergonomics may be tricky for small hands ; Can have difficulty autofocusing when using the zoom

The WA10 is one of the best waterproof camcorders we've tested, aside from its ergonomics. The HX-DC1 camcorder offers a similarly configured package for AU$299, without the waterproofing.
