The versatile Sony HDR-AS200V Full HD Action Cam is designed to go wherever you do - whether on a mountain expedition or just for a walk in the park. Featuring Wi-Fi with NFC support, the camera can be operated remotely using a mobile device or with the separately available RM-LVR2 Live-View Remote. It features a water-resistant design and simple one-button operation. Video is recorded to a separately available microSD card, with the option for MP4 and professional XAVC S compression. Apart from being splash proof, the camera includes a 16.4'-rated underwater housing, an adhesive mount, one battery, and a tripod adapter to get you started. Further extending its potential, there is a plethora of separately available mounts and accessories, enabling you to wear the camera or helmet mount it for POV action shots, attach it to a bike or vehicle, secure it in a static location, adhere it to a board or boat, or even see the world from the perspective of your pet. Professional XAVC S Codec The higher bitrate compression of XAVC S means in this setting the camera records 50 Mb/s; whereas the MP4 modes record a maximum of 28 Mb/s (at 60p and slow motion). A higher bitrate means less quality loss due to compression and more information to work with in post when color correcting or manipulating the image. Additionally, XAVC S supports professional timecode and UB (user bit). Timecode settings can be accessed through the mobile app or the separately available RM-LVR2 remote Improved Steady Shot Image Stabilization The HDR-AS200V features further refinements to the image stabilization compared to previous Action Cam models - in particular, anti-vibration optimization for use on remote control aircraft 170 FOV Ultra-Wide Lens An ultra-wide lens helps add an immersive POV feel to your movies while incorporating as much into the frame as possible Slow Motion Capability With the ability to record 120 fps in 720p, the HDR-AS200V allows you to slow down fast action so you can perceive detail otherwise inscrutable to the human eye. For extreme slow-downs, there is also a 240 fps mode shooting at 480p resolution Loop Recording Loop recording records video continuously, preserving the last 5, 20, 60, or 120 minutes of footage - depending on setting. As soon as something important happens, you can commit the duration of the loop permanently to memory and continue recording seamlessly. In addition to the user selectable 5, 20, 60, and 120 minute duration, there is an Unlimited mode that will fill up the remaining free space on the card. During loop recording, any previously recorded material never be overwritten Wi-Fi for Remote Monitoring and Operation With the PlayMemories Mobile (PMM) app, you can remotely control up to five Action Cams from a single mobile device. The app allows you to view a live feed from the camera, and the multi-view features means you can view up to five cameras at once, or just select one and view it in full screen. Controls available through the app include: Simultaneous shutter release Simultaneous recording start/stop Individual monitoring and setting Individual shutter release Individual recording start/stop Movie/still mode switching Changing exposure settings Start/stop time-lapse recording Play back and delete recorded clips Note: Multi-cam control requires PMM version 5.2 or late r RM-LVR2 Live-View Remote Compatibility In addition to app-based control, Wi-Fi means you can use the watch-style RM-LVR2 Live-View Remote (available separately) to remotely control the camera and monitor an image.
