Been great! Battery a bit short for some things

 

For short action stuff, I found it great, really good picture quality, slo-mo fantastic. Had to use another video editor as the one sony offer does weird stuff, couldn't do (make a little film out of the footage) what I wanted to do. Downside: Short...

Useless

 

Picture is good - only good thing. Battery goes flat too quick - maybe 2 hrs max - too short for cycling. Lately it's been turning itself off on the road - who knows why No option to continue recording and overwrite previous recordings - once it's full...

Excellent Price/Performance ratio

 

I wanted to dabble in recording my motorcycle rides so bought a budget camera with unsurprisingly mediocre results. Thankfully that camera failed and I replaced it with this one for a lower cost. Even though it uses proprietary mounts, there are cheap...

Not a GoPro - Dont Buy

 

Bought this camera as a cheaper replacement for a go pro hero 3 that was stolen. To be fair, I must disclose I'm a videographer with over 25 years of experience. This camera was not able to reproduce the color and clarity of the go pro's showing a lot...

Don't waste your money.

 

I bought this product online, as an alternative to the GoPro action camera because of it's lower price point. The power button broke after about 5/6 months of very light usage. Now I'm trying to get it repaired and the link to check the status of the...

HD video is superb, and still photo is amazing

 

I like the video stabilizer, and camera works even in minimal or low light. I can't use the camera while charging. Overall, video quality and colors is better than GoPro.

Best Purchase in the year

 

I love the wide angle and the stabilizer is perfect. THE ZEISS takes pictures out of this world and the small size of the camera makes it very very comfortable

Good quality pictures , poor construction

 

It was a good camera until it fell all of 2 feet, and now it no longer functions.

Lots of features, cheaper than the Hero3+ Black

 

So far, few issues. My previous camera was a GoPro Hero3+ Black Edition, which had a broken remote right out of the box. The Sony is significantly less expensive, and though it lacks a few video modes, it makes up for them in other features, such as...
