Very good camera but be prepared to spend more on accessories. This is a very good camera but there is no memory included. 1st thing to buy is an sdhc memory chip, cost about £20 for 16 gbyte. Once the memory had arrived and been installed, the camera was charged. It was quite easy to connect the camera using the inbuilt wifi to my samsung tablet or my son’s mobile phone, both running android. I could then see what the camera could see, adjust viewing angle, turn on / off the steadyshot, and start recording onto the memory chip. Unfortunately, the only mounts provided are two that fasten onto helmets or a flat surface with double sided tape. As you cannot adjust the camera’s view, you have to be very careful before glueing the mounts in place. None of the sony mounts can be tilted up, down, left or right, they are fixed. To use the camera on your head, there are two headbands available to purchase, one for the camera alone, one for the waterproof housing.

I wanted one for scuba diving but from reviews i have read and footage i have seen the provided case yields poor results. I guess sony must agree as they now offer two new case fronts, one with a wide flat front for under water filming and another with holes for better sound (but of course not as waterproof). Sony product code aka-rd1 which is on sale at sony uk, various other on-line retailers but not amazon. Also now on sale is a viewing screen / cradle to turn it into a normal camcorder (not waterproof) sony aka-lu1my thoughts on the camera. I thought the provided instructions were poor and i even had trouble opening the camera to fit the battery and memory card. On the camera side near the back it says ‘push’ when the back cover actually slides to the left. With the provided usb cable you can hook it up to your pc to access the full instruction manual and links to download play memory software (the built in memory mounts as a drive letter as does any memory card installed). No mains charger is provided so it has to be charged via your computer or a usb charger (i use portapow quad usb wall charger with 3 year guarantee (uk plug) to charge it and other such devices). Camera controls are straight forward, one press of the button on the back powers it up and it starts operating in the last set mode e.

Sony hdras 15 sports cation camcornder. My husband bought this and loves it. It is small and compact and the quality is really really good. He has the waterproof housing which he hopes to try out this summer.

Action camera for 40th birthday. Bought this fpr my son’t 40th birthday. Spent a lot of time looking at reviews and specifications. The stabilasation system was the clincher , makes for much better videos without your eyes getting tired with all the shaking.

Sony quality and performance, would be better if shipped with latest firmware. . An accomplished hd action video camera in a very small package. Once tha latest firmware version is installed, 60 ps at full 1080p is possible as one of the number of video settings. Because the camera has a rounded case, it has to be mounted in its protective clear carrier to be attached to a tripod or stood on a flat surface. This has the disadvantage of covering the stereo microphone and much reduces the capture of sound. The quality of the recorded video is excellent and the sound capture, if not in the protective case, is equally good.

Sony HDRAS15 Sports Action Camcorder with Full HD and Wi-Fi – Black : That camera is so good, i would say it films better than gopro, and the best part is, it is cheaper than gopro.

Cannot really be used on water – the inside of the housing get foggy very fast.
The image is what i was expecting the image stabilization. The image is what i was expectingthe image stabilization also very decentbut unless you drill some holes in the case you will experience fogging. Even with holes you might experience them if they are not in the right place. After 15 minutes the cam gets hot and fogging will start. Now i have 4 holes in mine and it is working perfectly. I bought the mpk as3 for underwater and with the holes i get some audio as well. Sony should have thought of all that.

Good camera, works brilliantly. I bought this camera for skiing and for snorkelling. The headband attachment has both the advantages of working very well and stopping you having to look like a [email protected] with a camera stuck on the top of your helmettake good quality video for both uses, it handles changing from light to dark well. Glad i bought it and i’d definitely buy the same camera again.

I bought this camcorder as an alternative to the gopro, as i was told that they were of similar quality. The camcorder was a neat little thing, image stabilising wasn’t quite as effective as i had hoped it would be, but seemed good enough value for the price. (however, since purchasing i have come to discover that the gopro 3 produces footage that is noticeably more stable and of better clarity and colour. )my main issue with this camcorder is that when it was still fairly new, i wore it out sailing on the headband. However, the plastic clasp on the headband failed and the camcorder flipped off and into the ocean. Camcorders sink quite quickly and despite my boyfriend jumping in after it, it was gone forever. Sony says it is not their problem and as i cant afford to purchase a new one, that is it for me. Since then, my boyfriend has purchased a gopro3, with all accessories (including an attachable float and a floating wriststrap) for not a huge amount more that what i paid for the sony. In hinsight, perhaps that would have been a better investment for myself.

Using in the plastic box, you need to insert anti fog tabs, as otherwise a mist will occur. The camera is mounted on my waw velomobile and withstands all the vibrations quite wellmovie quality is superb in full hd 60pwifi works great with my galaxy s3 android & sony app.
