Sony's Action Cam is hit-and-miss

CNET
21 February 2013
  • Summary: The Sony Action Cam is a solid first effort and worth its price, but some design shortcomings may be enough to put off some potential buyers.
  • Cons: Video quality is disappointing viewed at larger sizes; can't rotate lens or flip video 180 degrees; camera can't stand on its own and can't easily be used without a door on its case; no access to mic jack when inside case; no still photos beyond interval shots; and additional purchases almost required.

Sony Action Cam

MacNN
1 December 2012
  • Excerpt: The Good - Compact and light - High-quality 16-megapixel Exmor R CMOS sensor - Image stabilization works well - Easy to use - Built-in Wi-Fi The Bad - Mounts one-use-only - Can only be mounted in waterproof case - Outgunned by new GoPro Hero3 Sony is a relative latecomer to the burgeoning action camera segment, which is something of a surprise given its heritage as a camera maker and AV in general.
  • Pros: - Compact and light - High-quality 16-megapixel Exmor R CMOS sensor - Image stabilization works well - Easy to use - Built-in Wi-Fi
  • Cons: - Mounts one-use-only - Can only be mounted in waterproof case - Outgunned by new GoPro Hero3

Sony Action Cam review: a good rugged camera with a few software wrinkles

Engadget
5 November 2012
  • Summary: Has Sony swept away the competition with the Action Cam? Not quite. But as a debut into this market, it's respectable and promising. The camera does what it promises -- it lets you shoot good-quality action footage. The ability to shoot 720p footage at 120 fps gives the Action Cam a stand-out feature, which may be enough to win it a dedicated following. That said, the photo modes are somewhat limited, and the app integration is far from up to scratch.
  • Pros: Shoots good-quality video, Great for slow-motion, Easy to use
  • Cons: Limited photo mode, Poor app functionality
