Sony HDR-AS200V

 

The Sony Action Cam HDR-AS200V is an HD video recording device in the vein of the GoPro and costs about $100 less than the FDR-X100V while sharing most of the same features; save for the ability to record 4K Ultra HD video.

Sony HDR-AS200V review

  (Rating Hidden)

There's no shortage of Full HD action cameras out there, but Sony claims that the Sony HDR-AS200V is a cut above the rest. For a start, it doesn't bin pixels through compression, which should improve resolution and cut down on the jagged lines and...

Sony HDR-AS200V Action Cam Review: High Quality, Lousy Controls

 

The Sony HDR-AS200V is a superb camera, with beautiful video and stills. Rare features such as digital image stabilization and wind-noise reduction improve quality. But its interface is temperamental beast, especially compared to rivals such as the...

Smooth video with rich color ; Above-average audio ; Easy live-streaming capability ; Image stabilization and wind noise reduction

Confusing interface ; Barebones Wi-Fi smartphone app controls ; Minimal mounting kit

Sony's handsome HD camera shoots beautiful action video and stills, but it’s a chore to operate.

Good action cam

 

Great cam. After watching on YouTube comparison of those small Sony action cams I realized that that one is the one the best fits what I want. Would be nice if there would be available lens caps. I made some out of silicon DIY because I didn't find any...

Only worked once

 

It is a very sad piece of equipment! Worked for one day with good quality videos & on my second day discovered that all my skydives were not filmed & when I searched for help I discovered that a lot of people had the same issue!

You get the sony quality, slick profile (for paintball marker mounting) nice battery life (of course replaceable with additional power pack) 1 button recording. Image stabilizer via 120 degree FoV (170 deg. FoV without stabilizer) Vivid colors - is a...

Image is awesome!!

 

I do a lot of motorcycle track days and had a few other camera's. All of them suffer from severe video vibration, I must say the Sony as200v is the best I have ever seen! Stable with GPS and speed tracking what more do you want! It is small and the...

Easy setup

 

The AS200VB is the bike accessories version and comes with most things you need to get going. The live veiw remote is easy to use and setup with the camera. An extra battery is required if you need to video more than an hours worth of footage. Turning...

GREAT ACTION CAM

 

It does wonderful things. As it should. The downside to this is the controls. Using the camera it self to can be a bit confusing and it it best to set things up with a PC or your cell(Android) phone. The battery will last about 60-100 mins of rec. I...

First "Action" style camera

 

I purchased this camera because, well I love Sony, the price was better than competitors, and the reviews were good. I ride a motorcycle. I also am a service technician at a dealer. I like to record my ventures so I can reflect on them and God forbid...
