Sony HDR-AS15 HD Action Cam Review

 
3.0
Pros: Fast Start Time, Video and Audio Quality, Steady Shot Stabilization, Time-Lapse Mode, Standard Tripod Mount
Cons: Unintuitive, Design Oddities, Lacking Basic Functionality
Verdict: The mainstreaming of compact, rugged, HD video cameras was nearly non-existent just 5 years ago. Today, a multitude of manufacturers have taken to the "action cam" market, including Sony, a company that is certainly no stranger to video cameras.

Sony Action Cam

 
3.0
Pros: The Sony Action Cam is a good entry in the POV camera market that includes a waterproof case with a standard tripod mount; is available with or without Wi-Fi; has a small, lightweight body; and offers a decent number of recording options
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...
Verdict: The action cam market is dominated by companies that don't have a history of making other types of cameras. There is no GoPro point-and-shoot or Contour digital SLR. So, when a manufacturer like Sony gets into the market, it's reasonable to think it might be able to make a great POV camcorder, at...

Sony HDR-AS15 review

 
4.0
Verdict: With its HDR-AS15 Action Cam, Sony has taken a similar approach to Veho with its Muvi . Instead of making the camera itself tough, as with the Contour Roam2 and Drift HD Ghost action cams, Sony has taken a lightweight mini camcorder with a wide-angle lens and paired it with a tough waterproof...

Verdict: The Action Cam HDR-AS15 was built on some great ideas-the WiFi functions work well, the slow motion options are easy to use and churn out decent videos, and the on-board menu system makes sense.

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

Pros: Shoots good-quality video, Great for slow-motion, Easy to use
Cons: Limited photo mode, Poor app functionality
Verdict: 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.

Sony Action Cam HDR-AS15

 
3.8
Pros: Waterproof casing and some mounts provided. Image stabilisation (though only electronic). Simple to use
Cons: No image/video rotation. Photo quality is not great
Verdict: When Sony first announced that it would be making an action camera for the adventurous type, the photography world sat up and paid attention. This category has long been dominated by the likes of GoPro and Contour, so many were interested to see what Sony's offering would bring to the table.

Sony HDR-AS15 Action Cam Hands-On

Verdict: Sony's new HDR-AS15 and HDR-AS10 action cams are shipping and production models are in the wild now. I've had a little time this evening the check out the HDR-AS15 and have to say that it's a slick little camera that should give GoPro and Contour some serious competition.

"great for action, especially more for slo-mo"

 
4.0
Pros: light, portable, good slow motion, cheaper than gopro
Cons: fewer accessories available than gopro, bad pictures on this model, other models have MUCH better
Verdict: This was a great camera when i came out, and the only real competition to the gopro. if you're gonna buy a sony action cam i suggest the newer one as it comes with 4K and a much better contrast for the other types. this model has a firmware update that allows for 1080p and 60fps.

Great little video camera!

 
5.0
Verdict: I bought this video camera not knowing much about it, my son quickly informed me how cool it was and he wanted it for paintball, as if! lol The seller was awesome, it didn't come with the HDMI cable and he was quick to ship one out to me. I'm very happy with this purchase.

Awesome fun

 
5.0
Verdict: Picked up this cute cam and its soooo neat! I can't wait to go for a bike ride (bought the bike mount as well). It is easy to hook up with my Android cell phone so I can watch what is being played on my phone and work it from there. I tested it all and it works great.

great value

 
4.0
Pros: Slim, lightweight, battery life, WiFi
Cons: Mounting options are limited but it uses a standard threading so any tripod mount will work
Verdict: Picked this up for myself during the black Friday period. For what I paid, it is the best action camera for the price. The features and specs and brand name speak for it. The software update was very easy and now I can do 1080p 60p great for slowing things down when action gets good!

A definite rival to the GoPro; don't overlook this action camera if you are looking for one.

Superb Camera

 
5.0
Verdict: I have used this camera while cycling in the Alps and the quality is excellent. I only used the 720p setting (due to card size) and this was brilliant quality so can only image what it would have been like at full 1080p.

Where's the engineering?

 
1.2
Pros: nice accessories
Cons: real poor engineering
Verdict: What has happened to Sony's engineering. I've been purchasing sony hardware and software for decades.Going on reviews I purchased 2 camera kits from Tanguay ($299) The picture quality was the noisiest I've ever seen. One camera was already opened and dirty and the other was missing a battery tray.

Verdict: Used it during a vacation in Playa Del Carmen (near Cancun), Mexico. The videos were great. We rode the zip lines, did a cave swim, and road some off-road ATV ride at one park (Xplor). Then off to a Mayan ruin site (Tulum) and finally snorkling at another park (Xelha).

This baby takes the cake

 
5.0
Verdict: I was thinking about purchasing a Go Pro Hero 2 camera for surf footage. My friend had one of these and said it was a lot better, and he is right. It fits closer to you head when mounted on a helmet and the picture quality is far greater them I was expecting.

Sony action cam

 
3.0
Verdict: Picture quality is great, sony's image stablization works very well. Wi-fi always cuts out with my i-phone 5 in the truck, could be interferance from the bluetooth. It would be nice if it had a rotating lense like the contour does.
