Fantastic camera and better alternative to go pro + black. Very easy to use with amazing results. Steady shot system is incredible and removes all camera shake, picture colours are crisp and vivid, colour view finder on remote is great and saves smart phone battery,only used it a few times and not had any time to really get to know all features and apps or software yetonly minor issues (which i may be able to find way round but haven’t read manual yet) is it would be great to turn camera on from remote but i guess that would mean camera is on standby and therefore draining batteryapp for smart phone isn’t great and so far not been able to use to watch playback via phone or remote which is annoying but may be my lack of reading manuali used it outside car on track and wind noise is major issue. This is when in waterproof case?.I’ve not tried without caseotherwise fantastically clear results and highly recommended true alternative to gopro.
A really great camera let down by a couple of things. A really great camera let down by a couple of things. You a can’t download and delete a single file, or any number of files direct from the camera. The only way to delete is to format the sd card. I find this really badyou can remove the sd card and add or subtract any files so why not not through a usb connection?my son has a gopro 3 black+ and i think this is as good in every respect, including underwater if you use the proper underwater case. It beats it on a number of counts. The main reason i got this was for the image stabilization and i was not disappointed, its pretty much faultless and gopro users always forget to mention this, i wonder why?another gopro omission gps. Never even realised gopro does not have it until i was asked by my son, ‘does it have gps then and can you imprint it?’. The answer yes to both questions. I am now in the process of getting the hard lens cover, the sound is much better without the waterproof case and i would prefer to use it this way on my bike but to provide a level of protection i think the lens cover is a must.

Great action cam – poor accessories. Sony’s action cameras have always come with top quality specs. The video and sound quality produced by the as100v is fantastic, especially when it comes to image stabilization & the ability to shoot decently in lower lighting conditions makes this an ideal action cam to have. I’ve dealt with both gopro hero 3+ & drift ghost hd, and i personally would say that the as100v tops both of these in overall quality. That’s all well in good having all this quality, but what’s really important for action cameras these days, is the ability to have a high versatility when it comes to mounting. An action cam needs to have a good amount of accessories that are easily accessible which makes them possible to mount on what you want it, where you want it. First of all, sony’s main clip and adhesive pads seem to keep the action cam very secure, i have no qualms about that, the issue i have is that they’re quite big, this may be an issue for some like it was for me when attaching it to my motorcycle helmet (though some may not experience the same issue due to different helmet designs). With mounting in general, sony are gradually improving their line of mounting options to the consumer; you can get a mount for your chest, head, helmet, bike or surf board and others such as a roll bar mount, suction cup plus more; so the as100v can be used in a variety of activities, but there is still room for improvement. I had to buy multiple accessories so i could mount the camera to the side of my motorcycle helmet (i didn’t fancy having it on top as the slimline design suits being on the side). When it comes to true mounting versatility, unfortunately the gopro has it all.
Works well and with the firmware update has a couple of new little tricks. The live view remote has a tiny screen but is enough to show you what you’re aiming at. Would be nice if you could play/view pictures and video via live view remote but using a smart phone and play memories app you can link to camera and copy/share whats on the camera aswell as control it using you phone. Haven’t used it alot as yet but happy so far.
Everything good except from the lack of 90 degree mount to fit on the side of a helmet and the impossibility of fitting a microphone when it is inside the waterproof housing. The wind noise from the integral microphone is unpleasant when used on a moving vehicle such as a motorbike or bicycle.
