Sony Philippines Greets the Summer with the Action Cam

Sony Philippines greeted the coming of summer by reintroducing the HDR-AS30V Action Cam that was launched in 4Q of 2013.

A look back, the Sony HDR-AS30V offers:

  • Shooting of smooth and blur-free Full HD video and photos with its Exmor R CMOS sensor and wide-angle lens with SteadyShot technology
  • Easy sharing through Wi-Fi using smartphone plus NFC for One-Touch remote
  • Checking of shots and control "hands-off" recording with optional wristwatch-style Live View remote
  • Post-shooting experience with GPS and PlayMemories Home

The media was also given a sneak peek of the new version of the Action Cam, the HDR-AS100V, which is expected to be available locally starting April 2014.

The Sony HDR-AS100V Action Cam has:

  • BIONZ X processor that delivers Full HD image quality in XAVC S at 50Mbps
  • Live View remote that can control up to five (5) cameras simultaneously
  • Splash-proof body with no need for separate housing
  • Advanced SteadyShot that smooths camera wobbles and vibrations with 2.5x performance improvement over existing models
  • Create map views with GPS data overlay or merge shots from multiple cameras with PlayMemories Home editing software

Sony's latest Action Cam is made for adrenalin-soaked users on the road, mountain, water, or snow. Its slim design carves through air and water with less resistance, and the splash-proof body means you don't need a separate waterproof case to tackle rain-drenched trails. With its cool new white finish, this camera reflects the sun's rays when you're trekking or sand boarding down arid dunes in the scorching heat.

This new camera offers a smorgasbord of features to fit serious video creators. A choice of color settings gives extra creative flexibility when you're editing a footage. Capture a video with "Neutral" image quality, or spice up the footage with "Vivid" that accentuates rich and powerful colors for extra impact.

NFC allows fuss-free hook-ups with your Xperia device or other compatible smartphones/tablets with one touch. Transfer footage wirelessly to your mobile device for easy sharing. One-touch connection also launches the PlayMemories Mobile app on your phone or tablet that allows quick checking of camera angles directly on your mobile device's screen.

Action Cam Accessories

A good thing with the new Action Cam is that accessories for the older model are still compatible with it. Thus, users of Sony HDR-AS30V can use the camera accessories that they have even if they upgrade to the HDR-AS100V.

The Sony HDR-AS100V is expected to hit local stores this April with an SRP of PhP 20,999.
