Enjoy outdoor shooting for harsh conditions.
The HX-WA2 allows active shooting at anytime, even while snorkeling, surfing or doing other water sports, or on rainy days.
* This camera's waterproof rating complies with IPX8 ratings. This does not guarantee no destruction, no malfunction, or waterproofing in all conditions.
Capture high-quality videos and photos anywhere -- even underwater or in snowy mountains.
Beautiful images and sounds even underwater.
Underwater colors are automatically compensated to give them a naturally clear appearance. Also, the sounds of grasping the camera and operating the buttons are suppressed by the noise reduction function for a clear sound that matches the clear images.
Stable, single-handed shooting.
This unique grip form minimizes shooting fatigue. Shooting is stable because you can easily hold the HX-WA2 with one hand. Single-handed shooting also makes it easy to capture sudden shooting opportunities.
Easy-to-see, free-angle LCD.
285°Rotating, 6.7cm / 2.6-inch Wide-screen LCD
The HX-WA2 features a 6.7 cm/2.6-inch wide-screen LCD monitor that allows the brightness to be adjusted in seven levels. It also rotates through approximately 285° so you can easily position it at your preferred angle. This lets you keep your subject clearly in view, whether you're shooting high, low, or at yourself and your pets.
Twin Shutter / Joy Stick
The twin shutter lets you shoot both videos and still images without having to switch modes, and there is a joy stick on the rear panel. The control buttons are larger than on previous models, for more comfortable operation. For example, you can operate the HX-WA2 while wearing gloves.
