Sony Action Camcorder | HDRAS30VE is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Thank you Sony Firstly,Hats off to Sony. Some time ago I bought an AS15 cam and it was faulty. I got seriously ill and after some common sense chat and some e-mails Sony replaced my AS15 with an AS20. I'd lost the redeemable period due to the illness Then I tried the AS20 and it was terrific - I can't fault it. I'm still left with the memory of the kindness and understanding of the customer service thats rare these days.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great features, Poor design The standard handlebar mount renders the "steady shot" feature useless. I had to purchase a separate handlebar mount from a different manufacturer. There was only one strong, sturdy handlebar mount I could find, yet dozens for Sony's main competitors action cams. I don't think the flat and curved mounts which come with the product were much good. When riding my bike, I must lean forward and turn my head to the left awkwardly to see the camera's screen to check battery status, time recording, to confirm it is recording, etc because the screen is on the side & not the top of the camera when it is mounted on the handlebars. I didnt always want to have it connected to my laptop to charge the battery so I had to purchase a separate battery charger which I could plug into the wall. I have a relatively fast PC laptop and uploading a 35minute video to PlayMemories to get the GPS data overlay of speed, map, time remaining, time elapsed etc took 3 to 4 hours! I had to watch quite a few youtube videos to find out how to upload from the camera to PlayMemories & achieve the GPS data overlay. As for positives - it does have many great features like GPS, it is very light, produces a good sound & is really small.
