Sony HDR-AS100VR POV Action Video Camera
Offering the best battery life in its class at well over 2 hours, and by far the best audio, the AS100VR is one of the better all-around action cameras available. Sony’s Action Cam is similar to the other camera models in this category in terms of its basic recording capabilities along with a 170 degree pro quality Zeiss lens and a very solid 18.9 MP CMOS sensor which can record 1080p up to 60 fps and 720p up to 120 fps. It has WiFi so the camera can be controlled using a smartphone app and built-in GPS for tracking and analyzing your runs.
The camera isn’t as durable as the others and the images aren’t as sharp but what really sets the AS100VR apart is the optional live view remote which straps to the user’s wrist, enabling them to view and record even while the camera is mounted to something like their surfboard or helmet. For some, this feature will make up for everything else the camera lacks.
