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


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 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.

Fantastic HD Camera - not so good accessories


Bought the AS200V a few weeks ago, my main aim was to allow me to put it on my motorbike and record some ride outs with friends. Unfortunatley Sony dont make any decent (strong) clamps to allow you to safely and securely fit it to a high speed...

Easy to use, it has some very good features


I bought this on route to my daughters wedding, my wife had banned me from using my large camera! this gave us great stills and superb natural video with it being so small it allowed for many natural unforced moments.
