Customer Reviews

This is a great action cam and is better than its predecessor and any of the GoPro products in many ways.
Doug
As a cyclist, I am very happy that this camera is very light weight and can be mounted without the waterproof case.
Derek
I love the Live View Remote wristband which makes it easy to properly frame my shots and control the camera.

Style Name: HDRAS100VR/WConfiguration: Base Verified Purchase
Firstly, I'm a heavy user of action cams. I've used them for everything from B-roll footage, timelapses, drones/quadcopters, helmet cams, weather balloons, high speed recording of MMA and plenty other things. I'm saddened that it took until 2014 for me to be wholly satisfied with a product all around (I've eagerly waited on my pre-order for over a month!).

I'm going to get straight to the main course. The quality of the video alone is an embarrassment to Go Pro (the innovator of this product and the "industry standard"). The sharpness of the lens and fluid motion of the CCD, even with the stabilizer turned off, isn't even in the same category as the competition's. It handles color beautifully, and allows you to record 1080p at 60fps so even the quickest turns and motions are captured accurately and not lost in frame sync.

On paper, there are a few competitors. The Go Pro Hero 3+ Black Edition offers just about the same specs, but lacks a live view remote. But the quality difference gets lost in the fine print. Sony's image sensor is far superior, its stabilizer is subtle and effective, and most importantly, there seems to have been a fine display of quality control and testing, whereas Go Pro absolutely craps themselves in that regard. The Hero 3+ is off focus, the Hero 3 is fragile and buggy, the Hero 2 skips frames and cannot focus underwater, etc, etc. That being said, I'm sure you can understand why I was so excited to try the Sony AS100VR out.

You're probably thinking: "But wait, doesn't the Hero 3+ support 4K video?"
Technically it almost does. What Go Pro considers to be 4k is actually about a thousand pixels short of the WHXGA standard. Practically it does not even come close.

This is a great action cam and is better than its predecessor and any of the GoPro products in many ways.

Weight is minimal. The feature I'm most happy to see is the mount on the camera. This means you can mount it to most anything without needed a bulky/heavy case. For use on a Quadcopter (some people call these "personal drones"), weight is critical. The case adds another 60g, nearly 2/3 the weight of the camera. Thats 60g I'd rather not have to carry around draining battery. When mounting it to a helmet or other headworn method every bit of extra weight is weight you'd rather not have. The AS100 resolves that by adding a mount to the camera. HOWEVER, this mount is NOT a tripod mount. It is a smaller threaded hole that allows for an adapter to be mounted. That adapter has a standard tripod mount and anti-rotation pin hole. It adds minimal weight, but one could use the correct bolt to mount the camera directly in some applications. For example, on my quadcopter I'll use the proper screw to mount the camera directly to the frame and skip the adapter.

The camera is now splash proof. This is great for the times when I would use it without the case (i.e. mounted in the 'skeleton' mount) and in environments that it might get wet: sledding, biking, hiking, etc.

Another issue with needing the case at all times is fogging. In colder weather the case cools off and the camera heats up. This causes fogging inside the case and directly on the lens area. I could use the skeleton case, but most of the time when it is cold there is snow and I need the protection of the full case. They sell an anti-fog accessory, but I'm not sure it works and no case is of course a MUCH better way to make sure the case won't fog!

The mounting options alone make this a great upgrade.

Style Name: HDRAS100VR/WConfiguration: Base
I give the camera five stars, but the LV Remote only one star.

I've used the GoPro Hero 3+ Black and wanted something better. The AS100V Action Camera is better in just about every way: much better battery life; better picture quality; but most of all, it includes motion stabilization. This is extremely important for an action camera, and not just for the obvious reason that it makes the video more stable. Even more important is that all action cameras have a "rolling shutter" and this can cause vertical structures to "lean" back and forth as the camera moves, and can introduce the dreaded "jello effect" if you use the camera on a motorcycle or other vehicle that vibrates. While some of this can be removed in post production using Mercalli, or similar stabilizer, the better way is to not allow the shake or shimmy to be recorded in the first place.

This camera's motion stabilization does just that, and it works very well.

I found both the enclosure and the mounts much easier to use than those that come with the GoPro.

The menu organization and function is very similar to the GoPro.

The only downside I see to this camera compared to the GoPro is that it doesn't have as much third-party support. So, if you want to control the camera through the expansion connector, like you can do with the GoPro, you won't be able to do that. As a result, this Sony camera would not be a good choice if you want the camera to be part of some larger, custom image capture system.

So, except for those small caveats, the camera is really good.

However ...

The "Live View Remote" is an absolutely terrible product. Save yourself some money and instead get just the bare camera, without this viewer.
