Carrie Ketron, Amazon
8 January 2015
  • Summary: I have used this three times since I bought it and it will not hold a charge. The door at the back holding the battery in comes open constantly. It is very cheaply made. I am so disappointed because i bought so many extras for it such as case and the hands free band to record when I dive.

Bloody pain in the ass at set up!

Larry Steppat, Amazon
13 July 2013
  • Summary: No real instructions! Must go on line for anything reasonable. Buttons/controls way too small! Plug-in cover flimsy at best and all but breaks when placing in aux. viewer. Really poor engineering as far as handling. I expect Sony quality per taking movies but horribly disappointed per mechanics.

The housing floods at a about 100 feet.

Mannetta Braunstein, Amazon
4 April 2013
  • Summary: On my last dive trip there were many people with a Go Pro. They had no problems and very nice videos. There were two people with the Sony including myself. Both housings flooded at about 100 feet. The were both new. Five thousand miles from home is no place to own a defective housing.

Record Button wears out quickly

N. Sakamoto, Amazon
4 April 2013
  • Summary: The record button on the back stopped working after just a few uses. If I push it very hard it will still work, but only if it is not inside of its waterproof case. Do not buy this camera.

Avoid at all costs

vanski, Amazon
4 April 2013
  • Summary: I was excited when I got this because I was going to use it to document my scuba diving adventures in Hawaii. It worked pretty good on land, no complaints, except the housing would fog up constantly. I then took it into the water for my first scuba trek.

D. Chastain, Amazon
4 April 2013
  • Summary: Initially happy with purchase, after six months of use the power connection broke, you'd think under warranty, no problem right? WRONG after sending in for repairs and at first them saying they never received it they finally said they have it but that it was misused do void the warranty, how can you...

Sony HDR-AS15 looks nice but doesn't do what it says on the box

James Hill, Amazon
7 April 2013
  • Summary: Hi Everyone. I purchased the HDR-AS15 action cam before going to the Maldives. The specific purpose was for videoing during diving. I liked the shape of the Sony, because it fits neatly in the palm of the hand, which should allow for great angle shots while diving - as opposed to the GoPro, which is...

Buy a GoPro instead

Amazon Customer, Amazon
7 April 2013
  • Summary: I use this camera for my daily commute. The Android app is buggy when used with a Samsung S3, which is a fairly common mobile. Additionally, I also had to buy an external charger and a few extra batteries because the camera doesn't charge consistently via USB - a problem with a battery life of less...
