The HX-A500E Wearable 4K Camcorder from Panasonic is a water- and dustproof action camera that records 4K Ultra HD (3840 x 2160) video at 30p. It features two parts, a lipstick tube camera unit with a 160° ultra-wide lens, and a recording unit with a 1.5″ LCD screen. The camera system is designed so that you can attach the recording unit to a backpack or parachute strap, life vest, belt, or somewhere else readily accessible so you can monitor shots and control record start and stop.

The camera unit weighs approximately an ounce, and can then be mounted on a headband, handlebars, or another perspective to best catch the action from. Optimized for adventure sports and recreational activities, the whole system is IP58 rated, meaning it is dustproof as well as water proof down to 10′ for up to 30 minutes. Not only can the HX-A500 shoot 4K, it does slow motion also. It can record 120 fps HD at 1280 x 720 resolution, and 240 fps at 848 x 480 widescreen SD resolution. Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity allows you to control the camera wirelessly from a smartphone or other mobile device, and live Web streaming is also possible using the USTREAM service.
