Sony Action Camcorder | HDRAS30VE is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 89.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from buy a proper camera I bought this for a skiing trip and it has been a disaster. After setting it up there was no response from the record button. Resetting to factory settings cured the problem - haven't dared to set it up again. Live with the bleep. You need to download some Sony software to access your pictures. This is glitchy, awkward and will not work after every set of updates. Running the updates deleting the programme and reloading sometimes works - often not. Basic accessories are not included in the price, are expensive to buy and cheaply made. Altogether my advice is buy something (anything) else. Go to another manufacturer who are Pro.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good price and product I wanted an action camera for my motorbike so I picked this because its more streamlined than some other cameras and the price was reasonable.excellent video even at night. Just a few problems, one there are no brackets with the camera to enable fitting to bike or car although universal fittings will do. (I made one myself for bike) another problem is the lens fogs up in cold weather and also the battery doesn't last long with GPS and wifi switched on. Very easy to set up, good clear pictures as I use it as a dash cam. Bought extra batteries which solved battery issue. Perfect for my use waterproof and doesn't look out of place on bike.sound is a bit muffled with case on but not an issue as a dash cam.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's SONY Good! Having done some research on this type of camera I decided to choose this one because I wanted something reliable. My Video camera that I bought back in the 90's is still working well? It's a SONY. I also like the fact you get some handy accessories with it too, and cheaper than a Go-Pro and others. A great facility is that you can have the camera record footage upside down, yet the 'Flip' function allows the recording to be the right way up. The quality is excellent too. The only downside is not knowing if you set it at the right angle before fixing it to anything, like the outside of your car or bike.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from looks upscaled all i can say is luckily i bought it open boxed, as the video quality doesn't look that great, and honestly was expecting better than the 1080p30 video on my samsung MILC which records at 15mbps, and this AS20 records at 1080p60@25-28mbps, and looks fairly terrible even in bright daylight, so when i can i'm going to be upgrading sooner than i wanted, and it's just frustrating, that with an BSI exmor sensor you expect clear detailed video and images, but it looks like 640p from a cheap gopro knock off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super cool I bought this camera 2 weeks ago and i think its one of the best products I have ever bought. I took it with the Sony universal headstrap and I have to say that both work very good. Even if I have a small head, the strap is very good. Unfortunately you have to mount it on the side, so you have to get used to the weight at the beginning, but after the first time, you won't even notice it anymore. The possibility to check what your camera is recording on the phone is great and also share your photos and pictures is very very easy and immediate. I find the image quality very good and the sound very good as well. It's perfect for what I wanted to use it for, which is some snorkeling and trekking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant camera I've been using it for just over 1 year, The operation and settings are just about as simple as can be. I love the options available options of video quality from 1080/60 to 720/120. I have used mostly 720/60 which gives incredible results on the videos I've been using it for. The viewing on mobile app is blockey but ideal for viewing where the camera is pointing. The only issue I have is the mounting system it can pretty much only by mounted on a tripod or bracket with the case fitted making charging while using not really an option. But apart from that it is a very good HD action cam.
