New for June 2014 Fireware Update

Create Highlights with Serial Extraction
Analyzes the footage you have recorded, extracting the sections that are the most active or have the clearest images. The extracted clips are then edited together automatically in to a short video segment
Loop Recording
During extended recording that goes over an hour, this mode retains the most recent hour of video and erases the earlier data. This way the camera is perpetually recording so you can be sure not to miss the moment something important happens
Remaining Battery Indication on Main Unit
When you turn the power ON, Wi-Fi mode indicators on the main unit light up for five seconds. This lets you check the battery level without using a smartphone
Level Shot with Three Modes
The level shot function has been updated to support three modes: Strong, Standard, and OFF
Delay-Start Record
Waits three seconds from when you press the Record button before it actually starts recording to give to a moment to prepare
Mic ON/OFF Toggle via App
Using the Panasonic Image App , allows you to choose whether or not to record sound
Level Shot Check
This allows you to preview how well the Level Shot function works for a particular scene, before you start recording
    You can check if you have the latest firmware by connecting the camcorder to a device running the Panasonic Image App, then selecting "Menu" -> "Camera Setup" -> "Device Info". At this point you will be advised to update if you are not already running the latest version.

          Comments about HX-A100 Full HD Wearable POV Camcorder (Black):

          Bought the Panasonic HX-A100 for my boyfriend! He absolutely loved it! I was also impressed by it to. The only thing is it has a delay response. For example while recording from the camcorder and viewing it from your phone live through an app there's a 2 second delay. Other than that I thought it was great for the price'

          Awful image, awful usability.

            • Poor Image Quality
            • Poor In Low Light

              Comments about HX-A100 Full HD Wearable POV Camcorder (Black):

              I use a lot of POV sport cameras and thought I'd give this a try as I like the form factor coming from broadcast POV camera/recorder units. Unfortunately despite the design, this is a failure. The only good thing about it is the mounts are much better than GoPros. And now, the bad...
              -No swappable battery
              -No controls on recorder unit except start/stop and Wifi. This means you can only change settings by linking up to a smart phone, meaning, no changing frame rates on the go.
              -Lousy Wifi. Took minutes to connect with my phone and only connected about 50% of the time.
              -AWFUL picture quality. Crazy chromatic abberations, worse than a Hero 1 from years back.
              -WORSE in low light. I thought I had it in 640x480 when reviewing my low light footage, plus it looked like someone applied a watercolor paint filter from Photoshop.

              If you want a compact head camera with little functionality, buy a Replay Mini instead as its almost as small and not tethered to anything. Otherwise get the GoPro or Sony.

                Took this camera on duck hunting trip. It was easy to operate and had great video and audio. I would recommend it for outdoor operations.
