don't waste your money

By caprockcoke

from San Antonio, TX

This camera works fine as long as you are in a temperature controlled environment. Every time we have taken it out on the road, it will not work because it apparently is overheated. Yesterday, the high was 80 degrees! When I turned it on this morning (in the house), it once again worked just fine. An action camera that will not work if the temperature is over room temperature is of absolutely no use to us.

Firmware update needed

By bikram777

from London, UK

This is not a review, but posting my points to buy this camera as a consumer's point of view. I was about to buy this camera but holding a bit now until Sony confirms of release of firmware update. My two biggest concerns are the natural color is not maintained and only vertical video recording. The sky looks pretty horrible with those overly applied blues. Sand or outdoor ground color is pretty nice on GoPro. I like the color distribution of GoPro. Also, due to the shape of ActionCam, it becomes harder to hold it on a surface. Flipping video recording would be a nice feature. The biggest disadvantage is the color distribution. This shouldn't be a problem for Sony to bring a firmware update that fixes above problems.

Almost but not quite.....

By Scott997

from South Florida

I was really excited when I heard the camera was coming out. I even preordered. Once I got the camera the excitement turned to disappointment before even testing it out. Once I saw the underwater casing you need in order to have it work with the suction cup car mount I couldn't believe the flaw in the design. The microphone input is completely covered in the casing. In order to get around this problem I took out my red sharpee and a drill to make the input usable. The Next problem is the WIFI connection does not work as it should. The preview only works the very first time you find the connection and enter the camera password. The rest of the times it will find it but can't generate a preview, but can transfer video or LOW quality stills to your device (iPhone 5). Ok I found a work around for this too, I got to the race track selected forget this connection and then added it again with password. Next problem, at Daytona I wasn't about to mount a camera outside of the car so inside windshield seemed like the best solution. Now my video is upside down. Final Cut to the rescue for the firmware shortcomings. For Motorsport use stick with what works, the contour plus or go pro. This camera is not yet ready for prime time. Not until more mounting solutions are out that don't block your mic input and wifi preview works. A few more options like flipping video and higher quality still would be nice also. Sony KNEW what they were up against stepped up to the plate and bunted when they easily could of hit it out of the park!
