Ac­tions cams are get­ting smaller and sim­pler. Pana­sonic’s ac­tion cam­era looks like a small torch and at 45g is no­tably lighter, and cheaper, than the top mod­els. It is wa­ter­proof, with­out a case, to 1.5m. It shoots full high-def­i­ni­tion video and has wi-fi to trans­fer im­ages to a phone. Along with its size, its night mode is a stand­out as it lets users shoot in al­most to­tal dark­ness with their own in­fra-red light source. Its big disad­van­tage is a dis­ap­point­ing bat­tery life of just one hour and 15 mins record­ing time and, while there is an ex­tend­able bat­tery that dou­bles that time, it also dou­bles the length of the unit.
