Summary: Most excellent camera, but i could not truly count it as being 1080p. The difference in video quality between 720p and 1080p is not perceptible to me. The camera is an excellent value, however. It has fantastic sound compared to my old gopro, it is good at dealing with changes in light and tone ( and has particularly rich colors as well ). The image stabilization features is excellent.
Summary: I am very satisfied with this product. The film quality, audio quality, and stability are all on par with GoPro Hero 3's at a fraction of the cost. I use mine for airsoft as a helmet cam, and I want to get two more so I can have a view from my gun and a reverse angle.
Summary: I love the image from this camera, its truly HD. However, you can't set it on a top without the waterproof housing. That is a problem as I do not want to use the housing outside of water, especially as it generates some significant amount of heat after prolonged use. In addition, the awkwardness of charging is a con. Its impossible to charge on the go.
Summary: I spent a lot of time comparing the Sony to the go Pro hero three black addition. But I am very happy with my purchase the video quality is extremely good and the steady cam helps out a lot. The new software update to the 2.0 is incredibly good night some great features the 1080 P at 60 frames is incredibly good and smooth clean crisp video
Summary: This camera is really great. The image quality is exceptional. There are so many manual settings it makes for an awesome action cam. You can try two different angles, 120 or 170 (wide), the HD is very high def. The slow motion is really nice, although that is only in 720p. The image stabilization makes a huge difference. You don't have this on a Go-Pro. Also, the waterproof case is great with the universal tripod mount. A few issues.
Summary: I've used this camera to great effect with time lapse and slo-mo. It is a very impressive piece of hardware. Do know I am on the bubble for 3-4 stars. If the batter lasted a bit longer, I would put this at the top. As it stands, batteries are spendy, a tiny bit short, and charging them in the camera is kinda weak sauce. I do think the picture is superior to the gopro, but I do not own a gopro. .
Summary: Excellent recording features- bad mounting design- must go directly to internet for operation manual- Just wish sony and all manufacturers would quit making video cameras to small to hold and attach
Summary: The camera is truly amazing! it had everything I needed for an action camera, however there is one thing you MUST take into consideration before buying this product. Make sure before you buy this, that you have bought cooling pads for the camera. Sony doesn't tell you this but fogging is a major issue for this camera. I lost a lot of great footage due to this. So, make sure you buy them.
Summary: It is very lightweight I tested it on 720 and 1080 and it looks great. Ive had other recorders and this one does excellent in low light. I want to mention that it can take the bigger G batteries from sony, which makes it last even longer.
Summary: Recording quality is not as good As gopro3, similar to gopro2. Very good build quality and great accessories. Sony is making investment on this product line I guess second version will be better than gopro. New accessories are coming out and I hope sony won't change accessory line for the second version.
