Full HD

Full HD

Unlike most of the other camcorders that are a comparable age to the HX-A1ME which are not Full HD, the Panasonic HX-A1ME is Full HD.

We compared all the other Full HD camcorders to this camcorder and we think the Veho MUVI K-Series K1[plb_2962213_price], and the ION Air Pro Lite WiFi ActION[plb_2962214_price] which is cheaper; or the Transcend DrivePro 200[plb_2962204_price] which has better reviews are also worth considering.
