Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by A500 Great for OCR Ran a Spartan Race with the A500 and it performed beautifully. It was comfortable, durable, captured great footage, and after about 10 minutes I forgot I was even wearing it. April 6, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by awesome video sharp clear stable I've used this camera for amazing surf and ski videos. Simple to use and share and very good video stabilization. April 5, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Affordable 4K Camera I was surprised with the new 4 K recording Panasonic camera that I got from my brother a few months before , I liked its new features like adding the LCD screen not found in its processor the A 100 camera and its semi ragged design that makes it the best choice for me as I travel a lot and I always need something to remind me of my important moments .
