2012 has been the year of the action camera and a host of heavy hitting brands have joined this particular wolf-pack… and now the music kings Sony have gone the action camera route with an awesome gadget that has all the tools to squeeze out those action shots.
The Sony Action Cam will more than hold its own in the action camera pool. Making use of this over-confident camera is like capturing poetry in motion. It has the kahunas to record shake-free footage in the harshest of conditions so you don’t have to worry about screwing up that epic Pastranaesque shot. You can give full props to Steadyshot image stabilisation with Active Mode as it will smooth things over no matter how shaky the circumstances are. If it has action, the Sony Action Cam is definitely the man for the job, it will give you smooth and realistic frames at minimal effort. It will capture breath-taking POV footage that will give the viewer and authentic viewing experience.
Supreme imagery will always reign supreme. If you are in a situation with poor lighting… no sweat. Its Exmor R CMOS Sensor will fix that glitch quite promptly and will create outstanding image quality by doubling the light sensitivity of the sensor. It shoots full HD 1080p, (wi4x HD slow motion and a wide variety of frames of full HD and HD frame rate to accommodate whatever activity may be going on at the time. It also presents different resolutions to suit the situation. Your smartphone can also be used as a viewfinder to ensure your shot is perfect via way of the PlayMemories Mobile App. There are two versions, the HDR-AS10 and the pricier HDR-AS15 which has WiFi for wireless sharing.
The Sony Action Cam is a serious entrant and could very well give GoPro a few nighsweats…
