Sony HDR-AS200V

 

The Sony Action Cam HDR-AS200V is an HD video recording device in the vein of the GoPro and costs about $100 less than the FDR-X100V while sharing most of the same features; save for the ability to record 4K Ultra HD video.

Sony HDR-AS200V review

  (Rating Hidden)

Sony HDR-AS200V Action Cam Review: High Quality, Lousy Controls

 

The Sony HDR-AS200V is a superb camera, with beautiful video and stills. Rare features such as digital image stabilization and wind-noise reduction improve quality. But its interface is temperamental beast, especially compared to rivals such as the...

Smooth video with rich color ; Above-average audio ; Easy live-streaming capability ; Image stabilization and wind noise reduction

Confusing interface ; Barebones Wi-Fi smartphone app controls ; Minimal mounting kit

Sony's handsome HD camera shoots beautiful action video and stills, but it’s a chore to operate.

Good action cam

 

Great cam. After watching on YouTube comparison of those small Sony action cams I realized that that one is the one the best fits what I want. Would be nice if there would be available lens caps. I made some out of silicon DIY because I didn't find any...

Only worked once

 

It is a very sad piece of equipment! Worked for one day with good quality videos & on my second day discovered that all my skydives were not filmed & when I searched for help I discovered that a lot of people had the same issue!
