Enjoy outdoor shooting for harsh conditions.
3-Meter Waterproof and Dustproof
The HX-WA20 allows active shooting at anytime, even while snorkeling, surfing or doing other water sports, or on rainy days. The dustproof construction also lets you use it at sandy beaches or in dusty places. It's the ideal camcorder for outdoor use.
Capture high-quality videos and photos anywhere - even underwater or in snowy mountains.
The dustproof construction guards against sand and dust. If it gets dirty, just wash it off with water.
* This camera's waterproof/dustproof rating complies with IPX8 and IP5X ratings. This does not guarantee no destruction, no malfunction, or waterproofing in all conditions.
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-WA20 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-WA20 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-WA20 while wearing gloves.
