don't waste your money

By caprockcoke

from San Antonio, TX

Comments about Sony 16.0 MP High Definition Camcorder:

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

Comments about Sony 16.0 MP High Definition Camcorder:

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

Comments about Sony 16.0 MP High Definition Camcorder:

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!

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

    Comments about Sony 16.0 MP High Definition Camcorder:

    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

      Comments about Sony 16.0 MP High Definition Camcorder:

      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

        Comments about Sony 16.0 MP High Definition Camcorder:

        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

          Comments about Sony 16.0 MP High Definition Camcorder:

          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

            Comments about Sony 16.0 MP High Definition Camcorder:

            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

              Comments about Sony 16.0 MP High Definition Camcorder:

              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.
