Panasonic has announced three new Dual Cameras, the HX-WA10, the HX-DC10 and the HX-DC1, all which have an easy-to-hold vertical design, making it easy and seamless to shoot full-High Definition 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*1 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.

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.
