    Sony White Full HD Action Camera - HDR-AS300

    Capture the action as it happens with this Sony HD camcorder. It's ultracompact, so it fits onto a harness or a helmet without impeding your motion, ensuring you can record everything that happens during your activities. It provides a unique point of view, and it's splashproof and dustproof to ensure it can survive everyday use. This Sony camcorder even comes with an underwater housing so that you can use it while exploring the oceans or your local lake.

    BIONZ X image processing in this Sony action cam ensures that every video has impressive color depth and vibrancy even when the light goes low, and reduced noise is assured courtesy of the Exmor CMOS sensor. It even eliminates blur by utilizing balanced optical SteadyShot image stabilization — vital when you're biking down a mountain or parachuting at dawn. Use the built-in stereo mic to capture every sound, and don't forget slo-mo video replays for those extreme shots. This Sony HD camcorder can stream live via Ustream so that your viewers can experience the thrills and spills of your life.
