Trusted Review: Panasonic HX-A500E
The 4K mode is much more than a gimmick, and produces great levels of detail as well as rich, accurate colour. The lesser resolutions maintain the colour fidelity, although naturally lose the fine detail... The HX-A500E also belies its format in low light, with a bright picture maintained to low levels. Performance is particularly commendable here for an action camera.Review by James Morris
