In The Works

 

BACKGROUND: Okay so I've been using the GoPro Hero 2 for almost a year now and it has great features, great image, and great overall functionality but... All these great things were hit and miss. Their firmware updates are horrible. When we went on a...

Image Clarity/ Tripod/ Update

Beep/ Case/ Bottom Cover

Don't Do it. Wait for ver 2.

 

We literally had this unit for 5 mins of pictures... but the optional and very expensive underwater door (the default door cannot focus under water you have to pay a premium for the flat door) is very very clunky to use. The enclosure fogs up very...

Nice package full of promise

The optional underwater doors are awful and they leak

Consumer review by:

carrying case

 

I got mine a few days back and i am yet to try the underwater snorkeling, so far i sumerged it on my GF's fish tank and there was no leak.

light weight, easy to use, image stability, footage looks great in 1080 and 720

cant find carrying case, did not bring wall charger

don't waste your money

 

This camera works fine as long as you are in a temperature controlled environment. Every time we have taken it out on the road, it will not work because it apparently is overheated. Yesterday, the high was 80 degrees! When I turned it on this morning...

Firmware update needed

 

This is not a review, but posting my points to buy this camera as a consumer's point of view. I was about to buy this camera but holding a bit now until Sony confirms of release of firmware update. My two biggest concerns are the natural color is not...

Looks, FPS, WiFi

Shape, Color saturation

Almost Perfect

 

This Sony Action Cam is amazing. It would have been the perfect action cam except 60FPS cannot record sound. I believe most action cam users with fast action footage use 720P 60FPS to avoid CMOS jello effects. I also tested the cam underwater. The auto...

Amazing Image Quality. SteadyShot. Good Price

No Sound can be recorded at 60 and 120 FPS. Underwater AWB needs work

Consumer review by:

several problems

 

3 problems 1) how do you turn the really annoying sound off for every button click? sometimes i like to record things discretely, but with a HUGE sound on every button click, discrete becomes impossible. 2) to charge this thing, you have to use a usb...

great quality pic sound

hard to use

Consumer review by:

Better than GoPro Hero 2

 

This is so very close to being the perfect action cam, except that it lacks a floating back door accessory (like the GoPro) and a flat lense cover for underwater video (like the GoPro's accessory). Add these two accessories, and this camera would be...

amazing color replication, sleek design, great functionality

no underwater flat lens package (yet)

Action Cam Runner Review

 

I bought my AS10/B to use filming while running and climbing mountains. I haven't bought the head strap yet (coming in the mail now), but holding it while running and filming was very simple. The image stabilization is incredible and it is so easy to...

Small, simple, stabilization, clarity

No chest mount

Action Cam AS10/B

 

I bought this cam to record my motorcycle rides. The only helmet mounting option Sony offers is on top of the helmet or goggle mount. The adhesive mounts did not come close to matching the curve of my helmet (to flat or to curved). Thankfully they have...

great for action, low light, slow motion, and unique shots

No lens cover provided, limited Sony mounting options, flimsy USB cover
