Sony Action Cam HDR-AS30V


The second Action Cam from Sony adds some much-needed improvements to design and functionality. Plus, if you need image stabilisation, it's the camera to beat.

SONY HDR-AS30V Action Camcorder - Black


Great as an action camera, fantastic footage. First used one heliboarding in New Zealand, as good as I remember with fantastic clarity and contrast. Sound quality is as good as any action camera but it has a mic input if you want to use it with a good mic
