Sony HDR-AS200 overview

  • 1Description

The versatile Sony HDR-AS200V Full HD Action Cam is designed to go wherever you do - whether on a mountain expedition or just for a walk in the park. Featuring Wi-Fi with NFC support, the camera can be operated remotely using a mobile device or with the separately available RM-LVR2 Live-View Remote. It features a water-resistant design and simple one-button operation. Video is recorded to a separately available microSD card, with the option for MP4 and professional XAVC S compression.

Apart from being splash proof, the camera includes a 16.4'-rated underwater housing, an adhesive mount, one battery, and a tripod adapter to get you started. Further extending its potential, there is a plethora of separately available mounts and accessories, enabling you to wear the camera or helmet mount it for POV action shots, attach it to a bike or vehicle, secure it in a static location, adhere it to a board or boat, or even see the world from the perspective of your pet.

Professional XAVC S Codec
The higher bitrate compression of XAVC S means in this setting the camera records 50 Mb/s; whereas the MP4 modes record a maximum of 28 Mb/s (at 60p and slow motion). A higher bitrate means less quality loss due to compression and more information to work with in post when color correcting or manipulating the image. Additionally, XAVC S supports professional timecode and UB (user bit). Timecode settings can be accessed through the mobile app or the separately available RM-LVR2 remote
Improved Steady Shot Image Stabilization
The HDR-AS200V features further refinements to the image stabilization compared to previous Action Cam models - in particular, anti-vibration optimization for use on remote control aircraft
170° FOV Ultra-Wide Lens
An ultra-wide lens helps add an immersive POV feel to your movies while incorporating as much into the frame as possible
Slow Motion Capability
With the ability to record 120 fps in 720p, the HDR-AS200V allows you to slow down fast action so you can perceive detail otherwise inscrutable to the human eye. For extreme slow-downs, there is also a 240 fps mode shooting at 480p resolution
Loop Recording
Loop recording records video continuously, preserving the last 5, 20, 60, or 120 minutes of footage - depending on setting. As soon as something important happens, you can commit the duration of the loop permanently to memory and continue recording seamlessly. In addition to the user selectable 5, 20, 60, and 120 minute duration, there is an "Unlimited" mode that will fill up the remaining free space on the card. During loop recording, any previously recorded material never be overwritten
Wi-Fi for Remote Monitoring and Operation
With the PlayMemories Mobile (PMM) app, you can remotely control up to five Action Cams from a single mobile device. The app allows you to view a live feed from the camera, and the multi-view features means you can view up to five cameras at once, or just select one and view it in full screen. Controls available through the app include:
  • Simultaneous shutter release
  • Simultaneous recording start/stop
  • Individual monitoring and setting
  • Individual shutter release
  • Individual recording start/stop
  • Movie/still mode switching
  • Changing exposure settings
  • Start/stop time-lapse recording
  • Play back and delete recorded clips

Note: Multi-cam control requires PMM version 5.2 or later
RM-LVR2 Live-View Remote Compatibility
In addition to app-based control, Wi-Fi means you can use the watch-style RM-LVR2 Live-View Remote (available separately) to remotely control the camera and monitor an image. The remote is water resistant so that you can take it places - like surfing - you wouldn't want to take a smartphone
Highlight Movie Maker
So that you don't have to spend time editing, the Highlight Movie Maker automatically picks out what it deems to be the best moments, returning a self-contained MP4 movie for easy sharing and upload. The Highlight Movie Maker algorithm uses data from the gyro, scene color, smile detection, and other settings to identify the best moments in all of the footage you have amassed. You can even upload music from your computer to the Action Cam to add a custom sound track
Exmor R Sensor and Bionz X Image Processing
Proven Sony sensor and processor technologies give the HDR-AS200V the framework it needs to capture Full HD action footage, even at high frame rates
Stereo Microphone
Unlike many action cameras, which have mono microphones, the HDR-AS200V features a built-in stereo mic to help make audio as immersive as the picture. In addition, the HDR-AS200V introduces wind noise reduction - key for high-speed activities
Manual Settings
Manual settings give the user greater control and make it easier to match other cameras in a multi-camera production environment. Manual settings on the HDR-AS200V include:
  • Auto Exposure Control: ±2.0, 1.7, 1.3, 1.0, 0.7, 0.3, 0.0
  • White Balance: Auto, Color-Temp (2500 to 9900K selectable), One Push
Live Streaming to USTREAM
Where an Internet connection is available, you can stream a live, web-quality stream directly to USTREAM for people all over to world to enjoy
Burst Shooting
Take a sequence of stills in rapid succession to ensure you capture fast-action motion at just the right instant. You can choose to shoot 10 fps for 1 second, 5 fps for 2 seconds, or 2 fps for 5 seconds
Motion Shot LE
Capture traces of a moving subject in a single photo. As with burst shooting, you can choose to shoot 10 fps for 1 second, 5 fps for 2 seconds, or 2 fps for 5 seconds
GPS Overlay
Geotag images so that you can view location data as an onscreen overlay during in-camera playback
Action Cam Movie Creator
Edit your movies in-camera, with the ability to rotate shots, merge clips, and fast- and slow-motion effects

    Sony HDR-AS200 reviews

    HDR-AS200V Full HD Action Cam is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 17.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought this product for the second time I use the camera to shoot my motorcycle trips, one attached to the helmet and the other attached to the motorcycle. Image stability is very good and is not shaking. The battery lasts around two hours shooting in full HD and with a 64 gb card can shoot up to 8 hours. It has good adaptation white control and light control at the entrance and exit tunnels. Do not forget to by additional batteries. I previously used the GoPro, but after seeing the final result comparing the two prefer to stay with Sony.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice cam You'll need a 64gb+ card to record in AVC mode... else 32gb is limited to mp4 mode. The cam is small.. and delivers. not so great: micro SD card insertion is opposite the 4k action cam... seriously?! nice job Sony... and there is no block on either cam for reversal insertion... both insert and click in opposite without issue... the OSD does flash about a media problem... so remember this - micro sd card -- this cam, facing you. 4k cam - flip it to backside. Sony steadyshot is a miracle on these cams.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small and rugged, a pocket-sized point-of-view camera I got the camera images for use in point-of-view images, as an alternative to my DSLR camera. I like its portability, so, increasing my options to capture scenes. The camera is very robust, allowing it to be carried in the pocket without great care, even without the case of protection, although in this case with the accessory lens cover. Several mounting options, low weight, excellent image quality. When carried in a pocket, out of the protective case, the possibility of fixing a handle to place the handle directly into the camera (and not through the accessory for tripod) would further increase its portability. The cover lens, mandatory in this case should come with the product and not be sold as an optional accessory. In addition to the options 170 and 120 degrees viewing angle, could offer even 90 degrees.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beats Go Pro hands down Rugged, Wi-Fi is great! This camera gets in places I don't want to be. If anyone Asks I can provide a video link to my first time messing around with this at a USAC Silver Crown race in Indiana. This place does not allow HTML links.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Much better than expected This little video camera recorder is much better than I had expected. The images from the video are clear, crisp and with excellent color. This video camera is very small and were it not for the extra water resistant housing, this would be hard to hand hold but with the water resistant housing surrounding this video camera, it is just large enough to be comfortable to hand hold. I would have given this unit 5-stars EXCEPT the housing does not have any kind of lugs or holes in which to place a strap. This would be very handy. We took this white water rafting, which can be somewhat jarring. It would have been nice to have a wrist strap to minimize the possibility of dropping the unit into the water. If the strap lugs were provided, this would be a 5-star unit. Otherwise, I highly recommend this Sony Action Cam. I have not used a GoPro but that unit would have some big shoes to fill to keep up with this Sony. The only other thing I'd add is there is no way to watch your video on this unit you have to copy to video from the very tiny SD card onto your computer to see the video.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spearfishers' Dream Camera I use this camera when I spearfish. It makes amazing recordings and also takes great photos. I attach it to my mask band and it records all the spearfishing action. Even though it is attached to my mask band, underwater it feels as if it is not there. It is very compact and light weight.
    Date published: 2015-12-14
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Video Quality at all Resolutions First of all I had ordered Sony FDR X3000 only to find that the 240fps slow motion did not work. B H took the return without a hitch. Upon receiving the second camera, HDR AS200, I noticed it too did not record the 240fps feature as well. To my surprise, as I already have an earlier version of a Sony sports cam, the newer ones now activates it's slow motion feature via Sony software only. This adds a couple more steps to my editing process since I prefer another brand of editor. OK it works but a little cumbersome. The real plus side to the camera is the video quality even at lower resolution of 480p. And since I did not need the newer 4K format I am quite pleased with HD 1080P performance. Having 2 GoPro cameras to compare with I feel my new Sony outshines them in both with clear resolution and stabilization.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing for first timer Great camera. Took it dirt bike riding with jumps and speed up to 40 mph. The camera was getting hit by chunks of dirt, branches and even survived 4 falls with out any damage to the camera while it was inside the case. It took great quality video and sounds. Waterproof case withstood damage all day. The biggest thing I took away from the first day is that the image stability features works amazingly. The videos never seemed like it was bouncing around or vibrating a little. Video quality was smooth throughout the day. As far as the software and video editing I gave it 4 stars. When editing you are limited to 4 videos when showing the GPS info and I cannot edit the videos to make one longer video when showing GPS. When making a regular video(w/out GPS)it easy pretty simple and actually fun to use, especially considering that this the only time I ever edited a video. Also the GPS info tends to lag compared to the video. There was one part of the video where I cam from a sharp turn and came to a straight section it stilled showed as if I was going through the turn at 12mph and then 2 seconds later showed my speed up to 39mph as I was already slowing down for the next turn. I checked my owners manual and found that the gps could be updated online and perhaps that's what I need to do to get gps synched with my actual speed.
