I've been in the market for an action camera for a while now. Just a few weeks ago, I picked up a GoPro Hero 3 Black Edition. Considering the Hero 3 Black is the industry leader, I was quite surprise to find out that there is no image stabilization built into the camera. Further, while shooting some video clips at night, the video quality was quite bad in low light situations. When Sony announced the predecessor to their action cam at IFA 2013 last month and having heard of all the features, I decided to pre-order the camera.

The Sony HDR-AS30V comes with 6 accessories.
- Micro USB
- Rechargeable battery pack
- Waterproof Case
- Adhesive Mount Attachment Buckle
- Flat Adhesive Mount
- Curve Adhesive Mount
- Set of printed documentation
The 73 page user manual is provided as PDF on the camera's memory and can be accessed when the camera is connected to a pc.

To access the settings on the camera, you have 3 buttons. An ENTER button, PREV, and NEXT. Navigating through the menus take some time to get used to, but once you get the hang of it, it's quite easy.

Sony also offers a free mobile app called PlayMemories Mobile. With the camera on and app launched, once you enter the SSID and password provided to you on one of the printed documents, you'll have a LIVE VIEW of what the camera is aimed at. This comes very handy when framing your shot. With the app, besides starting and stopping the video recording, you have options to turn on and off the SteadyShot, toggle the camera viewing angle between 120 degrees and 170 degrees, and set the camera in PHOTO or MOVIE, or INTERVAL RECORD mode.

Color Name: BlackSize Name: OS Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This camera is so close to being the best in the industry but it's got some serious missed features to make it great.

Lets start with the GOOD:
Image Stabilization: It's the only sports camera on the market that has image stabilization, this is outstanding!!!
Small form Factor: the camera itself is really small compared to other cameras (but*** keep reading)
simple menus for easy adjustment from the side of camera with it's included screen and buttons on the side.
remote management: you can change settings remotely over WiFi but the options are limited.

Now to the BAD:
The lens is not rotatable: Contour(no longer in busines) and Drift (best on the market, IMO) really hit the features when they made the camera rotatable.
No mount on the camera: the camera has no way to mount it so no matter what you have to use a housing of some kind, utter FAIL
WiFi: Sucks power like crazy... Also limited ability to change setting for the camera. You can only change camera recording rates and angle of view. other settings like time lapse cant be adjusted and setting like flip have to be done from the side of camera. This is quite the pain when all the settings should be adjustable from the app.
Not able to select center point metering or change any metering setting at all, though the stock setting is pretty decent it would be nice to be able to make adjustments.
Microphone settings not adjustable.
Lousy location for mic, not accessible inside the case that it comes with (you can't drill through either because then you'll damage the locking lever that closes the case. You have to buy a goofy offset housing that then gives you access to the ports on the bottom of the camera.

Sony has been making video cameras longer than just about anyone on the market, so it's no surprise that their wearable action camera is a high quality product. This little camera is about the size of the battery my camcorder used a decade ago, yet delivers beautiful high definition wide angle video.

The camera can shoot in a variety of resolutions and framerates, ranging from as low as VGA resolution all the way up to 60 frames per second at 1080. There are slow motion modes as well.

The camera lacks a view finder but does transmit a preview image to a mobile device running Android or iOS via WiFi. All of the camera controls are configurable from the mobile app and it's possible to also initiate a recording from the app as well.

The camera lacks a tripod mount but the included waterproof case has one. Unfortunately the camera has to be enclosed in the waterproof case in order for it to connect with any of its included or optional accessories.

Sony no longer requires users of its products use its proprietary memory format, so micro SD cards are compatible as are Sony's M2 cards.

Overall this is an impressive camera that has a better form factor than the GoPro. I don't own a GoPro to do a head-to-head comparison of video quality, but I was impressed with the speed of the sensor and how nice the image looks.

It's becoming a common sight to see boxy action cams sticking out awkwardly off people's helmets, mounted to chest straps, etc. In purchasing Sony's new AS30 I was hoping to find something capable of being a little less bulky and a little more subtle. I want to capture video of my adventures, but where the cam is something I can bring along without having to sacrifice any major attention away from the activity itself, and where it isn't completely obvious to anyone who comes within my vicinity.

I can say that, after a couple days mountain biking with my new AS30, I've not been disappointed.

Now, the cam only included a couple of sticky mounts in the box, and those don't really do it for me. The included mount let me position the camera sticking straight up off the top of my helmet, which works well enough, but between the shape of the camera and mounting it in that position, combined with the extra centimetre of height due to the mount itself, it doesn't really meet my desire for a degree of subtlety. I chose to forego the included mounts altogether, and used some double sided sticky tape and a zip-tie to lash the included waterproof case directly to the side of my helmet. This worked great, and I did it so that I was still able to easily remove the cam from the case in order to change batteries and retrieve the SD card.

I have been reasonably impressed with the size and weight of this new model. I think one would have to be rather fussy to take issue with the weight of this cam when mounted on top of their helmet, as I almost didn't notice it.
