Sony HDR-AS50 Action Cam

 

Sony's Action Cam range is pretty diverse, ranging from the entry-level AS20 all the way up to the 4K-capable X1000V. The HDR-AS50 sits just above the former, but it's still firmly at the cheaper end of the line-up.

Sony HDR-AS50 Review

 

The Sony HDR-AS50 is an affordable way to jump on the action camera bandwagon – as long as you're happy with high definition video, as opposed to 4K footage, and stills quality that reflects the fact that it’s been shot on something a quarter of the...

[REVIEW – SONY HDR-AS50 Action Cam]

 

THE LOWDOWN: Sony's new action cam is small and light – 24x47x83mm and 83g – and fitted with an 18.4mm (film equivalent) f2.8 Zeiss branded lens. The 11 megapixel sensor is back illuminated. Image stabilisation is electronic “SteadyShot”. The camera...

There is not much in the way of attachments in the box. Be prepared to lay out more money for doodads to attach the camera to you bike, hat or helmet

This is a reasonably priced camera that will serve a diver, skier, cyclist, skate-boarder or sky diver well. Not being a daredevil our testing lacked something of the adventurous spirit but we like what the Sony AS50 did. And it scored the TIPA award...

Poor Sound In The Case - Great For Scuba

 

I primary got this for scuba diving use and so far for that it has worked well. Unlike other such cameras it actually has a manual white balance option which can be used and set underwater (however quite a few menu steps to get to the option). The...
