Comments about Sony HDR-AS30V Action Cam with Live View Remote:

Always wanted a GoPro and was on the cusp of purchasing one when I stumbled upon this Sony family of action cameras.

So far the AS30V is proving a great choice with the functional image stabilization, better color rendition/saturation (albeit, no RAW mode like the 3+ Black). Surprising difference in image performance as the two cameras rely on the same sensor.

Good assortment of accessories for mounting and using. Some accessories seem a tad fragile (the frame for tripod use being one in particular), but hopefully they prove more durable than they feel… Water proof cases are nice quality, easy to use, and have a substantial feel about them.

Slim profile is very nice at times vs. the wider GoPro. Much easier to be discreet and not cause concern when filming live at an event, with a crowd, etc.

Battery life is impressive, over two hours of recording on a charge with the WiFi remote on.

Standard 1/8" mic jack is nice too - no need for a converter cable as seen on the GoPro.

And, although it can be finicky to connect, the live preview remote control is fabulous. Unlike the GoPro, having this off camera preview (that's not sucking on your iOS or Android device) makes using the camera much more versatile & easy.

The Action Cam community is also pretty decent with a few mods and much support for the cameras available via nominal searching on the Internet. Not as deep as the GoPro community, but with a growing user base I suspect the cameras will only continue to be hacked & supported with gusto.

Really looking forward to using the camera more with action shots on the car/plane/etc. and seeing the results it provides.

No regrets purchasing this camera.
