Panoramic MP Cop Cams (Panasonic)

Cop cams seen on TV are usually grainy and shaky with a narrow field of view. While they are helpful in providing evidence and assisting in arrests, these have been significant limitations.

In this note, we look at this new model, its novel advantages, and compare to existing body worn options.
