5 in 1 Action Camera by Sony

Sony's 5 in 1 Action Camera

The Sony HDR-AS100V is really 5 action cams in one, or a minimum of it may be. whereas the camera works simply fine mounted to a helmet or shoulder, it extremely levels-up the expertise after you have a bunch of all networked via an optional wrist controller.

Up to 5 cameras may be "meshed" during this means, letting the user alter the footage captured by every cam. The cameras themselves ar splash-proof, and may capture video at up to 1080p at 24 frames per second. At 720p, they'll record in film at a hundred and twenty Federal Protective Service or perhaps super-slow at 240 Federal Protective Service.

With multiple cameras and also the RM-LVR1 wrist controller, extreme videographers might mount cameras everywhere the body, or many bodies, to create some seriously artistic footage. The provided Play Memories software system has tools for merging material from multiple cams, creating split-screens straightforward. The footage even has time codes, though you will need a professional suite (such as Sony Vegas) to use them. The cameras' aboard GPS will integrate map views, too.

Built into the camera is Sony's Steady Shot image stabilization, which can adjust to the different kinds of vibration that goes hand in hand with action videography, whether it's gentle bumps on a ski run or the constant rumble of a motorcycle.

I got a little hands-on time with Sony's tiny but powerful action cam, as well as the wrist mount, and they're pretty fun. The camera itself is remarkably lightweight, and the white finish is pretty. Since the footage is relayed wirelessly, there's a slight but perceptible delay in the camera view on the wrist monitor, but it worked well with no dropouts.

The AS100V will be available in March. Each action cam costs $299.99, and a bundle with the wrist controller is $399.99, so a full five-camera system will set you back about $1,600. Steep, but if you get some friends in on the action, you can split the cost.
