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 60 fps (with firmware 3.0 or higher). 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.

New Features with Firmware 3.0

PS Recording Mode (1920×1080/60p)
Allows you to shoot smoother video in fast moving scenes using this new, higher frame rate of 60p. Also play back 60p movies on your compatible PC and TV.

Note: 60p playback may not be compatible with some smartphones and tablets due to spec/performance.
Water Scene Selection
Capture underwater video even clearer than before with this new "water mode" enabling white balance adjustment for underwater shooting.
Beep Off Setting
For those of you who prefer to film and control your POV footage in a quiet zone, you're now able to adjust sound levels for the on/record trigger and settings button.
Play Memories Mobile Seamless Mode Change
Will let you upload your video content even quicker than before when using the Smart Remote function. Just connect your Action Cam and smartphone or tablet using the built-in Wi-Fi to utilize the Smart Remote and when you're done filming, upload the footage directly to your social channels via Play Memories without having to disconnect.

    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!

            Seems like this cam should be a breeze to operate, but the documentation is so dismal that I am having trouble figuring any of the setup menus. The manual was obviously written in a foreign language (Japanese probably) and the translation is poor. The foldout paper manual is unintelligible, the pdf version is readable but poorly translated. Foreign companies have been in the US market for a couple of generations or more. You might imagine a company like Sony could figure this out by now

                Camera works great with very clear video in and out of the water. Only issue does not come with video card.

                  Been using these since 2012 and currently have 5. They work well for a wide array of uses. Make sure you do the firmware update to allow for 1080 60P. It records at a higher bitrate and that makes a big difference.120 degree FOV with steadyshot turned on works remarkably smooth when walking or even flying the camera on a pole or copter.However I now prefer 170 degree FOV because the image is sharper. 120 appears to be crop-zoomed and while it's less distorted (fish-eye), it's also noticeably less sharp.The 120FPS is pretty useful as well for slow motion stuff. Too bad it's limited to 720.The audio is surprisingly good.These things are so inexpensive it's truly a no-brainer. Just go get one and have fun. I also recommend the LCD CASE AKA LU1 and the Skeleton case. Both of which help greatly depending on the type of shooting you are doing.

                    For $[$]I think this camera is a no brainier. Very easy to control especially after the firmware update. Video quality is pretty good; image stabilization really works. I'm using this with the optional audio enhanced door, and sound quality while using the water proof housing is more than acceptable.

                        The Sony HDR-AS15 is a great camera. With the newest firmware update it shoots in 1080/60. It makes great videos and the interval/time lapse mode is great. I wish it took photos more often than every 5 seconds, but it still turns out great. The sound is excellent!! It's so much better than the other action cameras out there. It's a shame to put it in the waterproof case because you sacrifice some of that great sound. I personally love to put it in the skeleton case. It is great. Overall, I don't know that I would change anything about the camera. It's awesome.

                        I was a little hesitatant because of the super great price, so I paid with PayPal and decided to take a chance, I couldn't have been more happy with the results, best deal around, and great quality just as described and fast shipping

                        Bought to record a behind the scenes, "reality" style web series. Using it in tandem with a GoPro Hero 3 Silver edition, and it outperforms the GoPro considerably. The image is clearer, brighter colors and far less noisy. The included accessories work great as well. The menus are super simple to navigate and the Wi-Fi app functions great. The battery life is about 2-3 hours, depending on your settings. With the latest firmware update you have more options for system settings and can record at 1080p, 60FPS, which is only available otherwise in the much more expensive GoPro Hero 3 black. The only flaws I kind find are it's poor low light performance(That's kind of a given) and sound (also a give) All in all, for under $ , this is a great little camera.

                        For about half the money of a GoPro, this camera delivers the goods. In wide mode it is at least as sharp as a GoPro, and has a couple of other advantages; wi-fi viewing on your iPhone is almost instant, and you can use the micro-HDMI out to connect a monitor when shooting. Plus it has some image stabilization which is very helpful. Does not shoot high quality stills, however. I often mount it on top of a DSLR to give a symultaneous wide shot.
