Panoramic MP Cop Cams (Panasonic)

Author: Ethan Ace, Published on Sep 16, 2012

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. Now, Panasonic is offering a new model of body worn camera with megapixel resolution and panoramic imaging to address these problems. In this note, we look at this new model, its novel advantages, and compare to existing body worn options.
