The Sony HDR-AS100V POV Action Camera & Live-View Remote Kit from B&H 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. It includes the Sony HDR-AS100V POV Action Cam and the Live-View Wireless Remote.
The HDR-AS100V is equipped with a 170° ultra-wide angle ZEISS Tessar lens, a back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS image sensor, and records up to Full HD 1080/60p XAVC S video at 50 Mbps. It supports 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.
Built-in Wi-Fi with NFC pairing capability lets you use smartphones and tablets to pull movies and photos from the HDR-AS100V without a cable. Once the video is copied onto your mobile device, you can easily upload and share your footage to social media sites. The HDR-AS100V also features built-in GPS, which allows you to add a geographical narrative to your movies and photos. The Sony's Live-View Remote is included so you can operate and monitor up to five HDR-AS100V Action Cam's remotely.
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.
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 memory card slot that supports Memory Stick Micro cards and microSD/SDHC cards. 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.
