Excellent

About Me Casual User

Pros

  • Easy to Use
  • Good Image Stabilization
  • Good in Low Light
  • Great Picture Quality
  • Great Sound

Cons

    Best Uses

      This is an excellent camera for the price and does what I want it to do. Often people compare it to GoPro III Black forgetting that it is more than twice the price of this one.
      What I was not particularly fond of in Sony Action Cam is the form factor. GoPro block is easier to hang somewhere on your clothing, which is hard if possible with Sony. But it compensate it some with its excellent image stabilization, that saves otherwise throw out videos. Overall I am very satisfied with the camera.

      A lot for the money

      By PLaunius

      from South

      Pros

      • Image stabilization, great field of view

      Cons

      • Need waterproof buttons for "next" and "previous", partial battery charge

      Best Uses

        Very easy to use. Auto power on and off so all you do it press a single button. I bought an extra battery and after charging both over night, each only had 3 of 4 bars. Can't seem to get a full charge. My biggest complaint is that to change modes (video/slow/interval photo) you have to open the waterproof case to get to the buttons. The case really needs two smaller buttons like are on the "start/stop" so that any function can be done with it sealed. If your hands are wet from water or snow, then you'll likely leave some on the camera and lock that moisture in the case with the camera. I still really think this is a great camera for the money and I'm happy I bought it.

        several problems

        By wyman

        from nyc

        Pros

        • great quality pic sound

        Cons

        • Hard to use

        Best Uses

          3 problems 1) how do you turn the really annoying sound off for every button click? sometimes i like to record things discretely, but with a HUGE sound on every button click, discrete becomes impossible. 2) to charge this thing, you have to use a usb connected to a pc that is on. that is slow and annoying. currently there isn't even an adapter. go find a third party charger. 3) the picture taking mode sucks. time lapse images, 5 second is the minimum. why not 1 second or even faster? please let me know if anybody finds out how to turn the sound off. otherwise great quality, just hard to use. typical sony.

          Almost Perfect

          By sumogurinet

          from Palos Verdes, CA

          Pros

          • Amazing Image Quality. SteadyShot. Good Price

          Cons

          • No Sound can be recorded at 60 and 120 FPS. Underwater AWB needs work.

          Best Uses

            This Sony Action Cam is amazing. It would have been the perfect action cam except 60FPS cannot record sound. I believe most action cam users with fast action footage use 720P 60FPS to avoid CMOS jello effects. I also tested the cam underwater. The auto white balance requires adjustments. I love the SteadyShot, Zeiss Lens, and the Image processor, almost the perfect cam, but I probably cannot use the cam since there is no sound at 60FPS. Great Cam though if you do not need 60FPS.

            Better than GoPro Hero 2

            By Brayton

            from Florida

            Pros

            • amazing color replication, sleek design, great functionality

            Cons

            • no underwater flat lens package (yet)

            Best Uses

              This is so very close to being the perfect action cam, except that it lacks a floating back door accessory (like the GoPro) and a flat lense cover for underwater video (like the GoPro's accessory). Add these two accessories, and this camera would be the best hands down! Keep up the good work Sony!

              Action Cam Runner Review

              By jun32

              from Draper, UT

              Pros

              • Small, simple, stabilization, clarity

              Cons

              • No chest mount

              Best Uses

                I bought my AS10/B to use filming while running and climbing mountains. I haven't bought the head strap yet (coming in the mail now), but holding it while running and filming was very simple. The image stabilization is incredible and it is so easy to use. It is light weight and don't foresee any problems with the headband mount, but will be interested to try it out.

                Action Cam AS10/B

                By Reno

                from Lawrenceville, Ga

                Pros

                • great for action, low light, slow motion, and unique shots

                Cons

                • No lens cover provided, limited Sony mounting options, flimsy USB cover

                Best Uses

                  I bought this cam to record my motorcycle rides. The only helmet mounting option Sony offers is on top of the helmet or goggle mount. The adhesive mounts did not come close to matching the curve of my helmet (to flat or to curved). Thankfully they have a standard tripod mount on the waterproof case so I made my own mount that clips on the bottom of the helmet for either side. I like the view it gives being on the side of the helmet and it is less likely to get damaged there. The fact that it is so light weight is a huge plus if your going to mount it to a helmet. It can also be velcro'd just about anywhere for some unique cam placements. The cam itself is very nice and really shoots great video. I do wish steady cam worked in the 170 degree view setting but the image is still very stable. The biggest surprise to me has been the sound quality from this little cam. It's not to bad even with the waterproof case on. I have a lot more testing to do but I think this just might give GoPro a run for it's money especially if Sony offers some more versatile mounting solutions.
