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.

    Additional Features

    Small and Lightweight
    The lens unit is only 1.07 ounces, and the total weight of the camera with the lens, the main body and an SD memory card is less than 6 ounces.
    Waterproof and Dustproof
    The waterproof design is IPX8 compliant for protection to a depth of 5 feet (1.5 m), and the dustproof construction guards against incursion by sand and other particles.
    Smart Sharing via Wi-Fi
    Memorable scenes can be distributed as videos on the Internet while recording in Full-HD. Users can remote record and instantly share images on SNS with a smartphone.
    Excellent Low-light Performance
    The bright f/2.5 lens, the 1/4.1" BSI sensor and Advanced Image Processing LSI enable the HX-A100 to capture clear images with minimal noise even in low lighting.
    Level Shot Function and Image Stabilizer
    Tilted shots are automatically leveled and fine blurring is suppressed.
    Slow Motion Video
    Impressive, slow-motion videos can be recorded in HD quality.
