By Stefano on January 7th, 2013

I wondered how long it would be before a major consumer electronics player got in with a wearable camera that enables the user to record their every step, and true to form Panasonic has got in there first.

Announced at the company’s event at CES in Las Vegas this morning the HX-A100 Wearable Camcorder is designed to let users easily capture and share images of everyday life such as sports and events.

The camera comes with an Earhook that enables users to shoot hands-free without a helmet. There’s also a Multi-Mount option for mounting the camera to a helmet or backpack.

The camera is waterproof has built-in Wi-Fi , so for example users can broadcast live video with simultaneous Full-HD recording or upload recorded images using a smartphone or tablet.

The camera also has host of image-enhancing technologies, including a bright F2.5 lens, the BSI Sensor, and Advanced Image Processing LSI. there’s also an Image Stabilizer to suppress blurring, and a Level Shot function to automatically correct tilted images. Other features include a Wind-cut option and slow-mo video in SD quality. Battery life is a reasonable 140 minutes of shooting on one single battery charge.

Brandish Christmas List # 9 Lomography Diana F+ Metropolis Camera £100

By Stefano on November 22nd, 2012

As much as I love my digital camera there are times when a bit of Lomo, saved on old school 120 medium format film, is just the ticket. If you are nodding your head in agreement then check out Urban Outfitters which has a great range of Lomo cameras including this very striking model that is adorned in a limited edition map print.

Features include a Removable plastic lens to allow for wide angle pin hole shots, the ability to do endless panorama shots and multiple exposures, two Shutter speeds and two picture sizes: 12 shot or 16 shot

It comes with coloured gel filters and that striking retro flash. More here.
