Recently announced at IFA, the Sony HDR-AS30V shoots smooth, blur-free full HD videos and stills with Exmor™ CMOS sensor and wide-angle lens with SteadyShot™, enabling you to capture adventures, no matter how big or small they may be.

Take thrills to the next level with Action Cam, ready for all the adventure you can throw at it, with exciting new features like GPS, Live-View Remote and a slim waterproof housing. From muddy bike treks to tropical lagoons, new Action Cam HDR-AS30V captures those once-in-a-lifetime experiences with fantastic Full HD movie clips and detail-packed still photos.

The new waterproof housing is now 35% lighter and 25% smaller than its predecessor, the HDR-AS15.

The slim design also cuts through wind and water when you’re free-falling, jet-skiing or streaking through that downhill run. Furthermore, it comes with huge 170° field of view (120° with SteadyShot on) and wide-angle Carl Zeiss Tessar® lens that takes in panoramic landscapes, dramatic ski slopes and more.

Simply great for adventurous bunch who’d wanna record their sporting or exciting escapades, without the heavy photography gears.
You could use it as an in-car video camera or record your child’s poolside party, without fear of getting it water damaged.
