Sony HDR-AS100VR POV Action Video Camera

6 March 2015
  • Excerpt: Offering the best battery life in its class at well over 2 hours, and by far the best audio, the AS100VR is one of the better all-around action cameras available.

Sony Action Cam HDR-AS100V

15 July 2014
  • Conclusion: When Sony initially announced they would be entering the already saturated market of helmet cameras, there was a lot of excitement, and of course naysayers, claiming that GoPro had the market cornered.

Sony Action Cam AS100V

1 July 2014
  • Summary: Built-in image stabilization and high bitrate recording make this Sony's best Action Cam yet, but there are still a few usability quirks remaining.
  • Pros: High bitrate recording and a bunch of extra features like GPS make this Sony's best Action Cam so far, with good still image and audio quality added to the mix. A new tally light on the top of the camera makes it easy to see when you're recording.
  • Cons: The live view remote can't be used for photo or video playback, and a microSDXC card is needed for high bitrate recording. Exposure during regular 28Mbps video recording is uneven, while water tends to cling to the front of the waterproof case.

Expert Review

24 June 2014
  • Summary: For years, if you wanted an action camera you would buy GoPro by default. And for good reason! Sony has caught up in a hurry, though. Its newest entry into the increasingly crowded field looks like it might be one of the first legitimate GoPro alternatives.
  • Pros: The Sony's image quality is generally excellent, and more or less comparable to the GoPro Hero 3+ Black. Many people will prefer the punchier colors out of the box. Battery life is fan-freakin-tastic, coming in at two hours and forty minutes of consecutive shooting (in 1080p 30fps with Wi-Fi and ...
  • Cons: I experienced major software issues with constant card failures. The waterproof housing is only waterproof to 16 feet, which is ridiculous, and water really sticks to the lens. The surf mount is totally unusable, and a sure recipe for losing your camera. The lens distortion is really quite bad, l...

  • Pros: Easy to frame shots thanks to remote screen, Rugged, waterproof case, Works with any standard tripod, Microphone input, Good video quality for an action cam
  • Cons: Vulnerable without its waterproof housing, GoPro beats it on video quality
