The compact and rugged Sony HDR-AS15 HD Action Camcorder with WiFi 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. The lightweight, wearable action camcorder weighs only 3.2 oz (90 g) and it supports up to Full HD 1920 x 1080p video recording at 30 frames per second (fps). It also supports other shooting modes including a 2x and 4x Slow Motion Video Mode. The 2x Slow Motion Mode supports 1280 x 720p video capture at 60 fps and the 4x Slow Motion Mode supports 1280 x 720p video capture at an amazing 120 fps. Having 120 frames per second to break down video frame-by-frame makes the 4x Slow Motion Mode a valuable tool for both movie making and review of your tricks, line, form and technique.

The HDR-AS15 provides WiFi capability. This means that WiFi enabled mobile phones and tablets that are equipped with Sony's free PlayMemories app can pull optimized movies and photos from the HDR-AS15 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.

Sony includes a ruggedized waterproof housing with the HDR-AS15. The waterproof housing has a universal tripod mount and is waterproof down to a depth of 197' (60 m). It is also dirt and dust resistant, which makes the camera nearly impervious to mud, snow, rain, sand and grime. The HDR-AS15 also comes with two adhesive mounts that securely attach to most flat and curved surfaces.

The HDR-AS15 is equipped with a Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens that supports an ultra-wide 170° viewing angle. The camera also has a back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS image sensor, which supports superb low light performance and Full HD video. To compensate for camera shake that's typical when shooting POV sports action, the Sony action camera features SteadyShot image stabilization with Active Mode. SteadyShot uses an innovative 3-way shake-canceling function to reduce blur caused by camera shake.

Other convenient features on the HDR-AS15 include "Press-n-Go" recording, HDMI connectivity and a built-in stereo microphone for capturing high-quality audio to go along with the Full HD video. The "Press-n-Go" recording function allows you to press a large start/stop button just once to begin recording, and the HDMI output lets you playback your footage on a large HDTV screen in 1080p Full HD resolution. The camera is also outfitted with a Memory Stick Micro and microSD/SDHC memory card slot for recording directly onto a memory card.

    Bought this on sale and received in a timely fashion. Found website - Updated to 60p and worked flawlessly. Chose Sony because of the side by side comparisons with GoPro on YouTube and the ultimate price point. Own 2 now with Sony accessories. Use with an iPhone for frame composition. Hit record and go. Recently attached to a dragster's roll bar with a Manfrotto clamp and footage looks great. For the price and the excellent video you can't go wrong. If you can get these on sale buy as many as you can because these are basically the same (the guts of the camera) as the new model introduced. Just update to 60p yourself.

    I was really excited when I heard the camera was coming out. I even preordered. Once I got the camera the excitement turned to disappointment before even testing it out. Once I saw the underwater casing you need in order to have it work with the suction cup car mount I couldn't believe the flaw in the design. The microphone input is completely covered in the casing. In order to get around this problem I took out my red sharpee and a drill to make the input usable.

    The Next problem is the WIFI connection does not work as it should. The preview only works the very first time you find the connection and enter the camera password. The rest of the times it will find it but can't generate a preview, but can transfer video or LOW quality stills to your device (iPhone 5). Ok I found a work around for this too, I got to the race track selected forget this connection and then added it again with password. Next problem, at Daytona I wasn't about to mount a camera outside of the car so inside windshield seemed like the best solution. Now my video is upside down. Final Cut to the rescue for the firmware shortcomings.

    For Motorsport use stick with what works, the contour plus or go pro. This camera is not yet ready for prime time. Not until more mounting solutions are out that don't block your mic input and wifi preview works. A few more options like flipping video and higher quality still would be nice also. Sony KNEW what they were up against stepped up to the plate and bunted when they easily could of hit it out of the park!

      Comments about Sony HDR-AS15 HD Action Camcorder with WiFi:

      The AS15 offers fantastic picture quality. The colors match my other Sony gear well (HXR-NX3). Although mounting options are limited, you can rig it many ways with gaff tape and a little creativity. The menu is basic and simple... once you understand it. I thought it could do time-lapse video, but apparently it only takes interval stills that you must stitch together on a video timeline to create a time-lapse. Maybe that's how GoPro's work too? I'm thrilled with the quality for the cost. The micro SD card it difficult to insert correctly because the slot is made to accept a Sony card too. Sony should give up on offering proprietary cards and just go with popular SD or MicroSD only. I also wish you could disable the "beep" when operating the menu. The wifi control works great! Fantastic for setting up your shot and monitoring. No regrets buying this little guy.

          IMO i think this camera has more usable features and has better quality video than it's closest compeditor.I have used for about 30 motorcycle videos and it has surpassed my expectations.Sound recording is only hampered by the fact it is in the warer prof case.

          This is my first action-cam. I was initially undecided between GoPro3+ and this one. After hearing many issues about GoPro3+ so I picked Sony HDR-AS15 instead. Pretty decent for beginners. About half of GoPro cost. You can control your cam with smart-phone. I would recommend to install anti-fog sheet with it. Overall, good quality video. I used it during my snorkeling trip in Hawaii. For underwater recording, the video quality is just ok, not impressive. For sound, don't expect to be great, especially when using a water-proof housing.

          We use the AS15 for river rafting, bicycling, and motocross.

          We now have two AS15's and compared to GoPro the Sony may have a few flaws but for the price it is an excellent value.

          We did have a problem once with fogging inside the case. We purchased the optional anti-fog insert but haven't used it yet.

          There is also a rattle that can be fixed by following instructions on youtube.

          We've had no problems with wifi or basic operation. The wifi is a great when used with a phone to check camera positon / framing. Nothing worse than getting home to find most of your video of ground or sky.

          Kudos to B&H for great prices and customer service.

            - picture quality
            - sony quality product
            I didn't realize there was no display screen on the cam. It seems that most cams don't either and this interfaces easily with my iPhone.

            Great video and super rugged camera. I've taken my action cam skiing, mountain biking and surfing and have never had a problem and always got great video. Works every time and all the mounts and attachments make it very versatile. The software could be a little less glitchy, I lose connectivity every once in a while; but the camera works just fine without the software. But the image stabilization makes this the best action cam out there. Great camera for the price.

              I own 4 Sony cameras, I added this to the mix so I could film under water and some POV sports shots. It's very light, shoots good and is controlled Via. Wifi with my phone. All and all well worth the cost. It's an older model so you can get a good price.

                There are so many uses for these.
                The shortcomings have pretty much been addressed now.
                The low bit rate of the 1080 mode which caused artifacts and video breakup during challenging scenarios like a crowd dance scene with fog and flashing colored lights where every pixel is changing is now improved with the 1080 60P update.

                The annoying lack of tripod mounting without the waterproof case can be solved using the LCD case. Or, if you need access to the HDMI OUT or audio IN, the skeleton case provides access to both as well as 1/4-20 mounting.

                Apparently the GoPro black, sony AS10, AS15 and AS30 all have the same sensor. The differences come from the photo options, lens and other hardware and software differences.

                I own several of the AS15s now and chose them over the AS30 since they video quality is the same. However, the AS30 does have an advantage in the still department as it uses the resolution the sensor is capable of to manage higher res stills among a couple other things.

                Battery life tends to be around 2 hours and with the various mounts available these little things can be mounted all sorts of places to get shots otherwise not attainable.

                Image stabilization works well and at the price it's an easy choice. Get one.

                I am not a pixel peeper! In my opinion these cameras are for the wow factor shots and should not be compared to my main camera. With that said, I am very happy with this camera as it allows me to get some cool shots in places a big camera won't go. The wide angle lens has given me some nice perspectives. There are lots of attachments for this camera from under water to a harness for a dogs back. I really love the 120fps! I don't regret my purchase!

                    In the world of mini-cams for action use, the Sony Action Cam HDR-AS15 is darn near perfect! Compared to its competitor, it features all of the same functions for a lot less money! I think the picture quality is better also with better contrast and color quality. The built in 'anti-shake' works well, and the ability to record at 2X or 4X Slow Motion is really cool. The only real drawbacks are mounting options as compared to the GoPro Hero, and where the external microphone jack is located, but there are work-arounds for those that still make this a better value.

                    I purchased this product a couple months ago. Small nice action camera; great video image; able to control the camera with iPhone wifi wireless interface. I don't have any cons to report; I wish battery life was a little better...but 1.5 to 2 hours battery life is expected with most, if not all, action cameras.

                    We bought the AS-15 to record Yoga instruction sessions to help the instructors evaluate themselves. The AS-15's small size, wide angle view and long bettery life made it easy to set up on a shelf in the corner of the studio and see everything in the room: instructor and students.
                    The AS-15 performed well in low light and backlight as well as front light. Thre is very little distortion with the 120 degree view. WiFi remote control made placing the camera and starting recordings easy once we got the hang of the smartphone app. We were able to use WiFi or USB to download and share the videos.

                    The camera appears to be very rugged and the price was certainly right!

                          Just got this camera and have only show videos at home. I've never had an action cam so I don't have any frame of reference. But I do think this camera is going to suit our needs just fine and it was such a discounted price then other name brands. When viewing the HD video on my laptop it looked great - very clean and crisp. Excited to take it on the slopes next month.
