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 ActionCam HDR-AS15/AS10 Preview


Sony as just entered the POV (Point of View) video camera category, which has been dominated by the GoPro cameras for some time, with their new ActionCam offerings. Sony has plans to change that with two new models, the ActionCam HDR-AS15 and HDR-AS10....

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

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 HDR-AS15


Extremely small and easy to carry. Easy to start and stop recording even when mounted on head. Good quality recording, especially in super slow motion.

The lens starts fogging after sometime. The memory card keeps giving issues and has to be inserted 2 or 3 times to work properly. The headband with the plastic casing feels heavy on head, and most of the time the camera tilts to back, with majority of...

Sony HDR-AS15


Video is good ... operation through mobile phone is essential, but getting it the wireless to connect (especially the first time) is a bit fiddly. My camera came with a pack of 8 fittings, which are mostly good. Without them, it would be useless. Menu...

The still pictures are very disappointing. Very limited access to controls when the water protection casing is on. Annoying that you have to connect to a computer to to charge the battery.
