With a 170° ultra-wide lens, the HDR-AS20 HD POV Action Camera, part of the Action Cam line from Sony, is designed to give you an immersive, first-person perspective on adventures of all kinds. It features 1080p video recording at 30 or 60 frames per second, a 720p30 mode for longer recording time, and a VGA (640 x 480) mode for producing compact, Web-friendly files. In addition to video, the Action Cam takes still photos at the camera's native effective resolution of 11.9-megapixel. Plus there is a 120 fps Super Slow Motion burst mode that creates a 4x slow-down in-camera without the quality loss of software-base slow motion.
Wi-Fi connectivity with NFC means you can operate the camera and monitor wirelessly from a smartphone or mobile device as well as pair it with the separately available RML-VR1 Live View Remote Watch from Sony. This wrist-worn controller has a built-in color screen for monitoring and can operate record start and stop plus snap a photo. You can even use one remote to control up to five compatible Action Cams simultaneously.
To further "adventure-proof" the camera the SPK-AS2 housing is included. Waterproof to 15', the housing also protects the camera from dust and dirt, as well as drops from as high as 5 feet. There is a 1/4"-20 socket on the bottom allowing the camera to be used with standard tripods, monopods, suction-cup mounts, and more.
