Some Panasonic HX-A100 reviewers who bought it agreed that it was thick. Dave Henniker said in his Panasonic HX-A100 review on Amazon “This time I made sure it was set to Wide mode”. In August this year John wrote on Amazon “Beat camcorder about, good wide angle, WiFi picture is rubbish”. Paul S. Weaver gave it a score of 5 stars and he said in his review of the Panasonic HX-A100 on Amazon “Discrete and the ultra wide pov is great for sucking in the whole scene without having to worry about exact positioning - it will capture everything”.
One Panasonic HX-A100 owner who reviewed it concluded that it was lightweight. Mathew Lythe wrote two years ago “Its tiny, lightweight” in his Panasonic HX-A100 review.
