Sony tackles the GoPro giant with the AS100V

 

In the world of action and sports cameras, the GoPro Goliath has been challenged by many wannabe Davids over the years.

High bitrate recording and a bunch of extra features like GPS make this Sony's best Action Cam so far, with good still image and audio quality added to the mix. A new tally light on the top of the camera makes it easy to see when you're recording

The live view remote can't be used for photo or video playback, and a microSDXC card is needed for high bitrate recording. Exposure during regular 28Mbps video recording is uneven, while water tends to cling to the front of the waterproof case

Built-in image stabilization and high bitrate recording make this Sony's best Action Cam yet, but there are still a few usability quirks remaining.

Excellent POV action cam

 

I have mine RAM mounted onto my motorbike, and it works beautifully. I added some foam to the handle bar mount to reduce the jello effect. Quality of the vids is amazing. Battery life with everything maxed is poor, so I have a USB cable to keep it...

A good little camera

 

I bought this camera recently direct from Sony. It has Wi-Fi and the capacity to control up to 5 of these little cameras at once. It has a wide range of image modes and can take still photos too. It comes with many attachments. My only gripe is that...

Inexpensive for it's size, excellent video quality, many attachments

Unable to pause only stop and start.
