Sony Action Cam HDR-AS15

 

Sony's first action camera is good. It just needs a few design tweaks and feature fixes to make it stand out even more.

Waterproof casing and some mounts provided ; Image stabilisation (though only electronic) ; Simple to use

No image/video rotation ; Photo quality is not great

Want to see how the Sony compares to other action cameras on the market? We'll have a full comparison video shortly.

Great quality at an affordable price

 

Pros: Overall great quality with excellent digital image stabilisation. Cons: Would be better with optical stabilisation. Play back on a large screen can be a bit grainy also however lighting can play a large factor in this. Definitely would recommend...
