The compact and rugged Sony HDR-AS10 HD Action Camcorder 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.

Sony includes a ruggedized waterproof housing with the HDR-AS10. 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-AS10 also comes with two adhesive mounts that securely attach to most flat and curved surfaces.

The HDR-AS10 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-AS10 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 the camera for a more unusual application, filming shotgun practice and hunts. Super Slow is great, gives great clarity at a very slow speed. Standard HD gives excellent quality. I did not go for the AS15 after poor reviews on the wi-fi for Android platforms. The cameras appear identical other than wi-fi.

    Fish eye effect is noticeable, distance objects are a bit fuzzy. No zoom is a handicap for what I wanted to do, but no action cam has that. The case is rugged, see other comments on lack of ability to get a mic in the case. The only hardware weakness is the pop-open door to access the ports and memory card. It feels delicate, it may last forever but I can see something breaking on it.

    User interface is good, easy to pick up and use. Looking forward to some accessories coming on the market for the camera.

    I bought this Sony Action Cam to record my driving experience in the confines of Corvette. I liked a YouTube video review and thought it would work for me.The choice of 30/60/120fps was a big factor until I found out that there's only audio in 30fps. The flush-mounted "prev/next" buttons were annoyingly hard to press even with normal-size fingers and even worse with the LCD attached. The hi-def video quality is stunning...up to about 30-feet; beyond that, it's blurry. Never opened waterproof case; got the LCD accessory instead with tripod socket. If you DO want to use the case for the socket and you're in a dry enviro, you'll have to drill holes in the front to get audio.Despite 6-lux rating, night video was good. In-cambattery charging was a pain but for extra $$ you can get an external charger kit with battery and Sony proprietary HDMI cable, all of which you'll need. SteadyShot was effective but defaults to "off" whenever you change a setting; must remember to re-activate it. Included software is useless; can't delete anything from cam. Must FORMAT THE WHOLE CARD--no way to delete single images. Get a large capacity micro-SD card because it is too risky to attempt changing it in the field.The accessories that I needed to make it all work for my application were mostly useless.

        Comments about Sony HDR-AS10 HD Action Camcorder:

        Admit this was an impulse buy while planning an upcoming beach holiday. But is has already proved fun and valuable in the few weeks I have had it here in landlocked Oklahoma. Easy to setup and use, indestructible so far, and with the 60fps capability I have gotten images that would have been near impossible to get any other way. A spur-of-the-moment purchase Now recommended as a useful addition to almost any imaging tool kit.

        Comments about Sony HDR-AS10 HD Action Camcorder:

        One word to sum up the Sony HDR-AS10? "Impressive." Well actually the first word that pops up in my head is "Beyond Cute." which is two words, so sue me. But after that, "Impressive." I use the AS10 for so many different things, even non action related outings. Currently I'm obsessed with turning my Rottweiler into a "B.C.C.O. - a Bionic Canine Camera Operator" and mounting this on the Sony Dog Mount. Like others have said, a lot of the faults with this camera have been made good with a firmware update and more varied mounting options. But not everything has been rectified. I'll get to the good aspects about the Sony HDR-AS10 first.

        The Good - 1080 60p with the new v2.0 firmware update is boss. Steadyshot works great. Although only available at 720p, shooting in 120fps is amazing. The super blue, fake looking skies might not be for everyone but the overall picture quality is terrific in decent lighting.

        The Bad - No Steadyshot on 170° FOV. Some of the mounts (not intended for water) still needlessly have no access to the microphone input (I'm looking at you LCD Cradle). The poor audio quality inside the included waterproof housing is fine and expected, but the camera rattles inside it. Not a lot, to the point I can't even see it moving inside the case on closer examination, but it happens. It's not like the rattle is a deal breaker though and some scraps of foam can fix this.

                  I bought the HDR-AS10 for being Sony and having a lower price than the reference cam action to Gopro. But I thought the set weaker than it should be, the two flaps that open (access to the connectors - and underneath the battery and memory card - back), do not seem to be durable. I liked the the video image, but the sound recording does not track quality. I still plan to use the camcorder in snowboarding lessons, main reason for purchase. I found it very cool style of POV cam.

                    Overall very good. Setting some of the options was a pain, but that's due to the simplification of the input on the camera itself. So simple button input = pain in the butt menus. Other than that, excellent camera.

                    I bought 2 of these last year when they first came out and to be completely honest, they are rubbish. Firstly to mount them on a tripod they have to be inside the underwater housing as only the underwater housing has a tripod mount. A major problem I have found with this is that the underwater housing tends to fog up due to condensation inside resulting in whatever you're filming being unusable.

                    Another problem is that if you leave them on a tripod filming in the hot sun they tend to overheat and turn themselves off thus you cannot actually call them 'Action Cameras' due to their delicate nature as they only like being in the shade.

                    Finally I have found the footage to all be very grainy even in HD 1080 mode except for anything that is within 5 feet of the lens.

                    These are terrible all round from their poor design and terrible recording quality. Never expect to use the footage from these in a professional video. I'd class these more as a toy than the real thing.

                    The HDR-AS10 is a great cam and has awesome video quality. I think it is by far the best action camera you can get for a low price. This Sony cam fits my needs perfectly with its above-average low light video quality and the fisheye lens is only an added bonus!If you are looking for a rugged, yet still high quality handheld cam, then this is the one for you. It also has slow-mo options which look fantastic. Just another great product from Sony!

                    I use it in a cuadropter for aerial videography, and even with the waterproof case, it doesn't destabilizes the whole rig. The quality of the images are very superior to that of the GoPro Hero, an the ability to change between 120 and 170 degrees of view is an extra. I recommend this camera even for event videography because of the head use that you could take from it and leave 2 hands free for photo or other uses.

                    Comments about Sony HDR-AS10 HD Action Camcorder:

                    I just purchased this hoping for performance similar to the GoPro 2. The CZ reference is total marketing fabrication. The image is grainy even in perfect light conditions. The camera's back door is loose after 2 gentle uses. The splash-proof housing is weak, poorly designed and ready to break. The menu on the camera is insanly frusterating and onyl uses 2 buttons to navigate everything. I don't have any idea how this camera is rated above 3 stars. Nothing about it is good, and I'm a huge Sony fan (I've owned 3 of their DSLR's and many P&S cameras), so I was hoping this would be a surprise hit. I'd rather not go with a GoPro so it looks like I better do my own research. The reviews on here re: action cam's seem to be skewed towards the positive-- strange.

                      Bought the camera for a more unusual application, filming shotgun practice and hunts. Super Slow is great, gives great clarity at a very slow speed. Standard HD gives excellent quality. I did not go for the AS15 after poor reviews on the wi-fi for Android platforms. The cameras appear identical other than wi-fi.

                      Fish eye effect is noticeable, distance objects are a bit fuzzy. No zoom is a handicap for what I wanted to do, but no action cam has that. The case is rugged, see other comments on lack of ability to get a mic in the case. The only hardware weakness is the pop-open door to access the ports and memory card. It feels delicate, it may last forever but I can see something breaking on it.

                      User interface is good, easy to pick up and use. Looking forward to some accessories coming on the market for the camera.

                            I used this camera for a fall recumbent riding video I put on youtube. I used the headband mount for use without the waterproof case. I was impressed with the video and I like that it doesn't come out as warm as the drift which looks a little yellow sometimes. I love the on button. Easy and no guessing once you learn to recognize the on and off sounds. The audio seemed decent as well. Actually the audio was very good for the winds I was facing.Some cons:Lens is not rotatable.Tripod mount only on water proof case.Once in the the waterproof case, the camera is no longer lighter than a drift or contour.Great video, but lacking in terms of mounting options.

                              I needed footage of a couple indoor water slides, so I ordered the AS10 since it came complete with a waterproof case. The video was exactly what I was looking for - the capacity for 60 and 120 fps slow-mo was a bonus.I see they've just introduced a monitor (for $) to make it possible to see your footage immediately. That's on my Christmas list.
