Panasonic launches new mobile cameras and dual cameras


Panasonic introduced new full-High Definition (HD) mobile
cameras, the HM-TA20, HM-TA2 and its new dual cameras, the HX-WA10, the HX-DC10
and the HX-DC1. All five new models will be available in early July 2011.



The HM-TA20 is a full-HD mobile camera, which has a
rugged design that is waterproof to approximately 10 feet, shockproof to
approximately 5 feet and dustproof and with the Night View Mode – it shoots
exceptional video and photos, even in low-lighting.



The Panasonic HM-TA20’s small and compact size, combined
with tough exterior, make this the ultimate video camera when it comes to
portability. Plus, with a large, 3.0-inch Touch LCD, the HM-TA20 is easy and
intuitive to use.



The Panasonic HM-TA20 shoots in full-HD 1920 x 1080
video, and records in the MPEG-4 AVC file format (MP4), which is convenient for
editing images with a computer and uploading files to the Internet.



The HM-TA20 includes an integrated USB terminal in its
compact body and after editing images within the camera, the user simply
connects the camera to a computer and the built-in software, which must be
installed first, will then always launch automatically upon connection.


The HM-TA20 can also be used as a web camera, for online
video chatting. Additionally, extended voice recording is also possible, for
recording and storing sounds.



The Panasonic
HM-TA2, is also a compact and mobile camera with the same features as the
HM-TA20, except it is not waterproof, dustproof and shockproof. Like the HM-TA20,
the HM-TA2 features the Night View Mode, a large 3.0-inch LCD for easy and
intuitive Touch Operation for controls such as, play, record, stop, zoom, and
also settings such as edit – all accessible with the touch of a finger.



The three new Dual Cameras, the HX-WA10, the HX-DC10 and
the HX-DC1, all of which have an easy-to-hold vertical design, making it easy
and seamless to shoot full-HD videos (1920 x 1080) or photos – without having
to switch between the two settings as there are separate video/photo capture
buttons. The HX-WA10 is waterproof down to approximately 10 feet making it
extremely versatile, and the HX-WA10 and HX-DC10 models include Panasonic’s
Backside Illumination (BSI) technology, which allows for optimal shooting in
dimly-lit conditions.



Panasonic’s three new Dual Camera models record video in
the MPEG-4 AVC file format (MP4), which is convenient for uploading images to
the Internet or editing on a computer. Beyond the full-HD video capabilities,
the HX-WA10 and HX-DC10 also offer 16-megapixel still photos, while the HX-DC1
takes 14-megapixel photos – resulting in high-quality images. All three models
can take 2-megapixel still photos while shooting full-HD videos.  Despite
being compact in size, all three models have a powerful 5x optical zoom, giving
the user more range when shooting video and photos.
