Sony Action Cam review: a good rugged camera with a few software wrinkles

 

Until now, Sony's efforts in the element-stopping sports cam world had largely consisted of handhelds such as the Bloggie Sport HD and the waterproof

Shoots good-quality video ; Great for slow-motion ; Easy to use

Limited photo mode ; Poor app functionality

Sony's Action Cam is a confident entry into the sports camera market, that is only marred by some easily fixable blemishes.

Sony HDR AS-15

 

PCMag.com describes the build as "rugged," but Gizmodo.com calls it "questionable," noting that a little bit of water got inside the supposedly waterproof case during surfing. Although the camera wasn't damaged, the reviewer says, "I definitely...

Sony Action Cam HDR-AS15

 

It's not the best wearable camcorder ever, but the Action Cam is a good first step for Sony.

The Action Cam is a good start, but Sony can do better.

Sony Action Cam HDR-AS15

 

Sony's first action camera is good. It just needs a few design tweaks and feature fixes to make it stand out even more.

Waterproof casing and some mounts provided ; Image stabilisation (though only electronic) ; Simple to use

No image/video rotation ; Photo quality is not great

Want to see how the Sony compares to other action cameras on the market? We'll have a full comparison video shortly.

Sweet Action Camera - HDR-AS15

 

The camera size (small), with built-in Wireless WiFi for live video monitoring during recording, transfer to smart phone and computers without cabling is very nice. Synced nicely to my Sony tablet S and was able to remotely view what I was shooting....

The camera size (small), many accessories

That annoyning beep (which they just fixed)

My favorite POV

 

I have a GoPro Hero2 and a Sony Action Cam. I honestly can't get rid of either of them because I love some of the features exclusive to each.

Cost, Wifi app works well, 120fps is awesome, great sound, great picture

Can't turn off button beep, can't change settings while in case
