Pana­sonic HX-A500 Cam­era – £379.99 www.pana­ IF you’re go­ing to do some­thing re­ally sod­ding men­tal, you want to make sure there’s ev­i­dence.

There’s no point get­ting into a fist-fight with a shark if you can’t show your mates later. this Pana­sonic bad-boy. While most peo­ple will think 4k just means it’s re­ally ex­pen­sive, it ac­tu­ally means it can record in Ul­tra HD.

So if you’re one of the lucky sods who own an ul­tra HD TV, you’ll be bloody laugh­ing.

In nor­mal shoot­ing you can have 4K at 25 frames per sec­ond or 1920 x 1080 at 50fps. Switch to slow mo­tion and you get the op­tion of 1280 x 720 at 100fps, or 848 x 480 at 200fps.

There are two parts to the HX-A500. There’s the brains of the out­fit in the main body and the cylin­dri­cal cam­era at the end of a 70cm long cable.

Make sure both parts are se­cure be­fore set­ting off.

On the main body of the cam­era there’s a screen, small at 1.5-inches, but still there. That means you can watch what you’re film­ing as it hap­pens.

An in­built bat­tery charges via USB and gives you around two hours of con­tin­u­ous shoot­ing.

The whole thing is in­cred­i­bly light and it does record de­cent audio.

There’s also un­lim­ited stor­age through the mi­croSD card slot. Ex­cuses and Lies Book – £5.95 EVERY­BODY tells lies. But there are dif­fer­ent lev­els.

Very few peo­ple put, ‘sorry I’m late, the bus was de­layed’ in the same cat­e­gory as ‘sorry of­fi­cer, that house was on fire when I got here’.

But if you need a few lit­tle white lies to tide you over, this book has plenty.

There’s ex­cuses for stay­ing down the pub, get­ting out of din­ner with the in-laws and why you can’t be ar­sed to do any re­cy­cling.

It in­cludes clas­sics like, ‘We’re go­ing to de­stroy the Earth no mat­ter what we do’.


But to cel­e­brate their five mil­lionth food and drink voucher be­ing sold, Groupon have teamed up with top London restau­rant Honky Tonk to de­liver the Glam­burger.
