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
