Sony HDR-AS100V Action Cam review:

 

In the world of action and sports cameras, the GoPro Goliath has been challenged by many wannabe Davids over the years.

High bitrate recording and a bunch of extra features like GPS make this Sony's best Action Cam so far, with good still image and audio quality added to the mix. A new tally light on the top of the camera makes it easy to see when you're recording.

The live view remote can't be used for photo or video playback, and a microSDXC card is needed for high bitrate recording. Exposure during regular 28Mbps video recording is uneven, while water tends to cling to the front of the waterproof case.

Built-in image stabilization and high bitrate recording make this Sony's best Action Cam yet, but there are still a few usability quirks remaining.

Sony POV Action Camera (HDR-AS100V)

 

Sony's Action Cam records decent video in bright situations, has useful image stabilization, and works with a pair of well-specified apps, but the camera suffers in low-light environments.

Lightweight, streamlined design. Well-designed mobile app. Decent video in bright environments. Image stabilization

Video quality suffers in low-light situations, even on overcast days. Shallow water depth limit

Sony's Action Cam series used to be the affordable choice for extreme videographers, but at $299.99, the newer HDR-AS100V model's price tag is creeping closer to its more expensive rivals like the Editors' Choice GoPro Hero3 Black Edition. The new GPS...

Sony Action Cam AS100V

 

This HD action cam has some of the best image quality on the market. Learn why in our review.

Bright colors and high frame rates provide exceptional image quality

The included case is only watertight to 16 feet

The Sony AS100 is one of the top action camcorders on the market and gives you premium performance at a mid-level cost.

Sony HDR-AS100VR review

 

It's time action cams moved on, and the Sony HDR-AS100VR shows the way forward

Easy to frame shots thanks to remote screen ; Rugged, waterproof case ; Works with any standard tripod ; Microphone input ; Good video quality for an action cam

Vulnerable without its waterproof housing ; GoPro beats it on video quality

By far the most user-friendly action cam you can buy

Sony Action Cam AS100V Review: GoPro Finally Has Some Competition

 

For years, if you wanted an action camera you would buy GoPro by default. And for good reason! Sony has caught up in a hurry, though. Its newest entry into

The real question is "Should you buy it over the Hero 3+ Black?" Based on performance alone, we would say no, but the cost factor may sway you. The standard kit the Action Cam AS100V comes in is only $270-a full hundred and thirty bucks cheaper than...

"Great quality / fantastic price"

 

I looked at the GoPro and then was very excited to see the AS100V on releaase. So easy to use with the kids and great results. The fish lens and HD recording is amazing. Sometimes in water get beads on lens but they wash off quickly. The stablisation...

Ease of use and excellent results

All good so far!

 

I bought this camera just a few weeks ago, and have yet to make real use of it. However, the on-board handbook (which can also be downloaded from the Sony website) has been helpfully straightforward, whilst I await the delivery of a wrist strap to...
