The compact Sony HDR-AS100V POV Action Cam is designed for point-of-view (POV) shooting during action sports including skiing, snowboarding, skateboarding, surfing, motocross, skydiving, mountain biking and other outdoor adventure sports. Compared to its predecessor, the HDR-AS30, the HDR-AS100V features a body that is splash resistant even when not in the underwater housing. It supports up to Full HD 1080/60p XAVC S video at 50 Mbps. It also supports other shooting modes including multiple slow motion modes. You can shoot 1280 x 720p slow motion video at 100 or 120 fps, and 800 x 480 slow motion video at 200 or 240 fps. The camera can also capture 13.5MP still images when using the photo mode.

The HDR-AS100V features built-in Wi-Fi with One Touch NFC pairing capability. This means that Wi-Fi and NFC enabled smartphones and tablets can pull optimized movies and photos from the HDR-AS100V without a cable. Once the video is copied onto your mobile device, you can use its 3G or 4G mobile broadband connection to email movies to friends and family or upload your footage to social media sites like Facebook and YouTube. The HDR-AS100V also features built-in GPS, which allows you to add a geographical narrative to your movies and photos.

On top of being inherently splash resistant, for full waterproofing Sony includes a ruggedized waterproof housing with the HDR-AS100V. For added convenience, the waterproof housing has a universal tripod mount. Plus, the camera body includes a tripod mount accessory and it is splash proof as well. The camera's housing is waterproof down to a depth of 16.4' and shockproof from falls up to 5'. The camera is also dirt and dust resistant, which makes it nearly impervious to mud, snow, rain, sand and grime. The HDR-AS100V is equipped with a 170° ultra-wide angle ZEISS Tessar lens and a back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS image sensor as well.

Other convenient features on the HDR-AS100V include HDMI connectivity and a built-in stereo microphone for capturing high-quality audio. It's outfitted with a card slot that supports Memory Stick Micro cards and microSD/SDHC cards (a class 10 or higher microSDXC card is required to record XAVC S). The card slot supports expandable external memory for virtually endless recording. To compensate for camera shake that's typical when shooting POV sports action, the HDR-AS100V even features SteadyShot image stabilization with Active Mode.

SteadyShot Image Stabilization with Active Mode
SteadyShot image stabilization allows smooth image shooting while the user is in motion. With the HDR-AS100V Action Cam, the image stabilizer digitally compensates for minute rapid vibrations that are typically caused by bicycle/motorcycle motion.
Splash Proof Body
The HDR-AS100V Action Cam was built with an improved splash proof body (IPX4-class). Enjoy carefree use of the camera outside of its included housing - even in rainy weather or splash-prone situations. With a universal tripod screw mount accessory included for the HDR-AS100V Action Cam itself, you can easily attach the camera directly to a tripod.
Wi-Fi Connectivity for Control and Streaming
The Wi-Fi link allows you to:
  • Control the camera and monitor a video feed from a mobile device
  • Control and monitor up to five cameras using a single, separately available RMT-VR1 Live View Remote
  • When tethered to a device that has an Internet connection, stream live to the U-Stream website
  • Pair the camera with an NFC-enabled mobile device simply by tapping the two together
Shoot Pro-Quality XAVC S 60p (50 Mbps) Video
Pro-quality XAVC S Full HD 1080p recording with a high 50 Mbps bit-rate enables the HDR-AS100V to capture quick action with smooth image motion. The HDR-AS100V also supports 24p high-speed 120 fps and 240 fps shooting with sound. Additionally, users can shoot video in the easily shareable MP4 HD format, which is ideal for the web.
Motion Shot LE Mode
Allows you to capture traces of a moving subject in one image so that it appears to be a continuous picture.
Burst Shooting and Self-Timer
Shoot busts of still photos at up to 10 fps. You can set a timer with a delay of 2 or 10 seconds before the camera starts taking photos.
Plot Location & Display Telemetry with Built-In GPS
Built-in GPS can be used in conjunction with the included PlayMemories Home software to make viewing and sharing videos fun and easy. Location and trail information, as well as speed information, add more layers for analyzing your performance. Location, trail and speed info can even be displayed on your video.
Built-In Stereo Microphone for Quality Sound Recording
The HDR-AS100V Action Cam's built-in stereo microphone allows you to capture all the exciting sounds of your adventure.
Exmor R CMOS Image Sensor
Experience enhanced low-light sensitivity thanks to improved image clarity and drastically reduced grain with Sony's back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS sensor.
Ultra-Wide 170° Pro-Quality ZEISS Tessar Lens
With an ultra-wide angle ZEISS Tessar lens, you can increase your perspective thanks to a 170° viewing angle while you venture out and capture views of dynamic terrain including ski slopes, mountain trails, and more.
Capture 13.5MP Still Images in Photo Mode
Put your HDR-AS100V Action Cam in photo mode and capture high-quality 13.5MP still images with a single press of the button.

A built-in stereo microphone allows you to capture exciting stereo sound to match your adventure.

      This little camera is a lot of fun. After playing with this for the past few weeks, I have found the highest video quality can be produced with these factors: use 1920x1080 60fps mode; use it without the camera housing; turn off steady shot; shoot video in very good light; and mount the camera.

      Also, if you want great image quality in variable lighting situations, the time lapse function takes great images for high quality video.

      The Action Cam can get higher video resolution quality with a 64Gb SDXC card. And it will allow more shooting option. But if you don't have the software or equipment to post process, and play back in super high quality, it's not really needed. The 1920x1080 at 60fps is plenty good. IMO, it's almost as good as Tememundo soap opera video quality.

      If you do You-Tube, 1920x1080 at 30fps is the standard. This little camera is so much fun, I can't put it down.

      I know that many people choose between Sony AS100 and GoPro, so maybe few hints from me will help.
      I chose Sony, as reviews were very good for the camera and image quality was as good or even better compared to GoPro according to YT videos.
      The product is generally well built and the shape is much better (allows better grip) than GoPro. Unfortunately, the image quality is worse, especially, if you make recordings, photos in low light. Most of the photos and recordings in the 170 wide angle option leave blunt edges with sharp center and the image is noticeably darker. Also, the shutter seems to be slower, which means more blur if objects move. In full light it's a bit better, but far from GoPro. I have comparison, as I exchanged Sony for GoPro in the end and made few shots in the same conditions just to make sure...

      Great action cam

      Comments about Sony HDR-AS100V POV Action Cam:

      I've used this cam for driving and for still video. The biggest pro is the microphone is very good, picks up voices even with a mild wind. The picture itself at 720 is good enough for my needs. Easy to attach to mounts. The only weird thing I don't like is that it bends the outer edge of the video when I tried to test it indoors. Doesn't happen outside so it's not too big of a deal for me. This cam even does slow mo which is cool.

        Comments about Sony HDR-AS100V POV Action Cam:

        I've been using the Action Cam for time lapse and low light night driving videos for the YouTube. The JPEG files are easily enhanced in Lightroom 5, and the image quality is quite good in blue hour and daylight shooting. After I enhance the JPEG in Lightroom, I run them through a video editing software for a time lapse video. Easy to do, and the results are great.

        This little camera changed the way I do videos.

          Took this skiing recently and was very happy with the results. Great in bright sun on snow and also took good footage at the end of the day when it was darker. Would be good if the on/off sound was a bit louder. Maybe there is a setting but have not had a chance to look. Picks up sound well as well. My 3 year could be heard crystal clear close up and at a decent distance. Takes a good still pick. so far very happy.

          Pretty good little camera. Excellent images and video. With the number of mounts included in the kit you are off and running with plenty of mount options. User interface takes a little getting used to but lots of custom settings.

              Comments about Sony HDR-AS100V POV Action Cam:

              I recently purchased the Sony HDR-AS100V with the Sony 64GB SDXC micro SD card.The action cam is used to record Dual Sport Motorcycle trips and thus the important features are:* ease of use* Reliability* Quality - video / audio / overall product* Mounting options* Remote control via iPhone* GPSThe Sony ticks all the above and does them well. The action cam remains sealed in its housing and, therefore, remains unaffected by dust, dirt / mud, rain and bugs.Recording in 1080p/60fps in vivid presents stunning video representation and steadyshot is perfect in assisting in the creation of this amazing picture quality, despite the bumps and jolts caused by off-road trails.On the whole, this is the perfect product for my application, but if there is one thing that I would like to have, it would be that the remote control application on the iPhone also include the GPS signal strength indicator so as to ensure that the GPS signal is being picked up before you start recording.The battery life is fine as long as you have spare batteries on longer trips, but generally a fully charged battery offers 90mins or recording time - more would always be better.

                Comments about Sony HDR-AS100V POV Action Cam:

                I use this for time lapse, dash cam, short videos, and walk around back up cam. What's great about the Sony Action Cam HDR-AS100v are: Stabilization, outstanding image quality, built in GPS, compact size and shape, 3+hour battery life for time lapse, a lot of video formats, even more options with SDXC card, burst shooting with high resolution, easy to operate menu system, easy to mount, large LED display, etc...

                What could be improved: nothing at this time. But if and when the competition makes a move, Sony should 1 up them.

                This Sony Action Cam, produces high quality images, and has a flat picture mode for advanced video editing software. I have posted some vids on You-Tube with little processing and great results. In addition, I have seen all the Action Cam you-tube vids, and those with bad image quality were produced by people who either don't know how to publish videos with clarity, or just want to dis the product. IMO, Sony Action Cam is one of the best POV action cameras to date.

                Comments about Sony HDR-AS100V POV Action Cam:

                I bought this mainly to record my road trip. Overall this one is truely great and easy to use. Image qualuty is quite good. You could pull out some comparison videos over youtube and figure out how good Sony is doing. But software could be imporved. That's why this cam only has 4 star for now. Pros:1.Wifi control allows you to access living video from the camera. The remote can control up to 5. This is extremely handy. 2.Probably the best image quality you could get out of an action cam at this point, while being reasonably priced. Video comparison could be found on Youtube easily. 3. Sound quality is good. Actually this cam's mic is quite good. I used it to record a video while driving. The music I played in car, my chats with friends, noise coming from outside the car, ...; these are clearly recorded with little distortion. 4. Provides a lot of functions. These can be found on specification pages. The 170 degree view angle is especially useful. Pro mode produces great movie clips. If you had a good mount, the steady could be turned off to gain larger view angle. 5. Comes with lots of accessories. It actually has 3 sticky mounts. I especially like the Tripod Adapter included in the package. This one allows you to release the cam from ball heads and put it back on quicly , without having to re-adjust the tripod and the mount; which allows you to just take the cam away and leave the mount or tripod where it is. Great if you plan to use it as a car-mount cam. Cons:Overall this cam is great but has a few limitations. Sony should be easily improve some of them to make this the best action cam. 1. Sony playmemory app is too limited. I have too little options in this app. I hope I could at least have mode control in the app. Also, I also have to go into my iPhone's wifi settings to manually connnect the cam quick oftenly. 2. Heat up quick. I think it is unavoidable for electronics. But it limits use since action cams are supposed to be exposed under sunlight. 3. Desktop software is strange. The Playmemory home is wired to use. It does a good job but slow. Forst start up it has a media library scan and it freezed the program for 10 minutes... Rendering is also slow. And it does not support editing .mp4 files captures in regular mode. Editing of .mp4 files could be done on other softwares I believe. But Sony should provide a software for this.

                    Had to choose between the goprop silver+ and this sony as100v. After testing the Sony I found it so much easier to use and the stabelizer works great. The gps work in iphoto on my mac just like the iphone with a map were it was shot. Just be sure to order the sony micro sdxc uhs-1 which works great in pro mode. Only thing to consider if taking underwater scene is to order the 190 feet case with flat lens ( MPKAS3) or it will be blury. I don't dive so no issue for me but existing case good to 16 feet but bluery under water.

                    I know that many people choose between Sony AS100 and GoPro, so maybe few hints from me will help.
                    I chose Sony, as reviews were very good for the camera and image quality was as good or even better compared to GoPro according to YT videos.
                    The product is generally well built and the shape is much better (allows better grip) than GoPro. Unfortunately, the image quality is worse, especially, if you make recordings, photos in low light. Most of the photos and recordings in the 170 wide angle option leave blunt edges with sharp center and the image is noticeably darker. Also, the shutter seems to be slower, which means more blur if objects move. In full light it's a bit better, but far from GoPro. I have comparison, as I exchanged Sony for GoPro in the end and made few shots in the same conditions just to make sure...

                          NOTE that the shape of this camera as compared to a GoPro makes it difficult to use for things like Chest mounts, mounted to the front of helmets, inside of car windows, and when you need it to be inconspicuous. A GoPro, especially when used with their FRAME or in a black housing is easier to hide. It IS GOOD for mounting to the side of helmets and it's probably a bit more aero when used on RC places and drones. I also have to add that the first one I got was soft on one side, where as all of the many GoPro's that I've used have been very sharp all over.

                            This product is of very good quality, if you connect to an MP3 with wifi and camera "of the most famous market" can use it as a monitor. The quality of the video and photos are superior, and does not require an expensive micro sd memory, with the most common is doing very well. If you like to go for walks with the family to park, beaches and mountains, do not leave without one of these. You will have the best memories.

                            for XAVC S video. Won't work with any other so don't try buying high speed SDHC cards. On the other hand, mp4 files look really good. I wish, though that the designer had put the controls on the left side like almost all video cameras are designed. Trying to control the camera on a dashboard for example is difficult. Get a spare battery and the lens cover, too. Lots of accessories with the camera so you don't need much else.

                              Comments about Sony HDR-AS100V POV Action Cam:

                              So far I've used my action cam while cycling through the streets of NYC and around Central Park, as well as while in-line skating around the city. When I first watched what I shot, I was extremely impressed at how steady and sharp the picture was!! I used the waterproof headband mount and I was very surprised that it was not uncomfortable as I was concerned that it might be. Next I plan to mount the camera to my helmet, hopefully on the side and not on top. I also look forward to taking this under water -- I'll be in the Bahamas in August so that'll happen for sure.

                              Also I didn't buy the wrist monitor option, and wanted to but didn't want to spend the extra $, but when I downloaded the app to my iPhone, I had a bigger monitor that now controlled the camera and showed what the camera sees -- really awesome!!!

                              Nothing I'm unhappy about so far -- really glad I bought this and not the GoPro or other brands -- Sony really makes great video products, which is what I usually buy.

                              I was (and am) sorely disappointed in the MP4 video quality of this camera. It is little if any better than my much cheaper Midland XTC.That alone made me very reluctant to purchase a high dollar ([$]) SDXC card. You have to use a SDXC card to use the PRO mode of the Sony HDR-AS100V. But i purchased one anyway.The difference in the MP4 mode and the PRO mode is night and day. Basically, there is nothing HD about the MP4 image beyond 10 or 15 feet from the lens. In the PRO mode, at 50 yds, you can see the needles on a pine tree vs seeing a blur at the same distance in the MP4 mode.White balance? White balance is not mentioned in the manual. Since it isn't mentioned, i don't know if it exists. If it is AWB, it does not work very well. Shooting from an ATV on a trail in the woods on a bright sunny day, Transitioning from shaded area to a bright sunlit area, you get major white washout. It doesn't last very long, but is very annoying.

                                  This camera works great. The video is flawless. I took several videos with it and it is as clear as being there. I would highly recommend it and also buy the add on lcd that this camera snaps in to.

                                    So far so good. Like all action cams, it takes a little bit of experience to aim the camera the right way. I am using the Android apps and it works nicely as remote view finder.I have used "the other popular action cam" and so far the Sony is as good if not better for slighly less $$$.
