Sony HDR-AS200V Review
Sony got a new action camera that is packed with excellent features as compared to its predecessor. The all new Sony HDR-AS200V comes with better image profiling and stabilization as compared to its younger sibling the AS100V. Basically, the main features remain untouched and therefore it’s still a perfectly functioning action cam and still the most solid on its price range.
You would expect the Sony HDR-AS200V to record high-quality videos in various resolutions. To be precise, it can record seven of the most used videos types on the professional film world right now. Moreover, it can stretch up to a 60 Mb per second bit rate. For any casual or professional videography, this is beyond the expectations. For slow motion lovers, they can enjoy the Slo-mo function of the Sony HDR-AS200V as well. However, you will get a slightly lower resolution in this mode. Nevertheless, this resolution is still good for short movies.
One of the features that stand out is shot stabilization thanks to the integrated smart software. The software allows you to shoot smooth videos by reducing the amount of turns and shakes. There is one of the best areas that Sony has invested in because you can even use the Sony HDR-AS200V on your motorbike or in the car. Keep in mind that it also has an in built tripod for easy use when you forget to pack your tripod.
When it comes to design, the Sony HDR-AS200V has an excellent finish that can easily turn heads. It also feels great in your hand and when on a tripod. Needless to say, the Sony HDR-AS200V is also weatherproof. This means that it can withstand considerable amount of abuse for a longtime. When other manufacturers get it right on the video quality and somehow mess up on the audio, Sony ensures you record high-quality sound through its excellent in built microphone. Moreover, the microphone has an inbuilt wind reduction system which filters the sound making sure that you get the best sound quality of the recording.
The Sony HDR-AS200V supports a lot of video formats and also allows you to convert video into various formats. Moreover, you can easily upload videos straight to your social media account thanks to Sony’s sharing function. The storage capacity is just what you would expect from a standard action cam but there are various ways to optimize the memory storage such as loop recording.
Of course Sony wouldn’t disappoint when it comes to the quality of the lens. Moreover, there are numerous filesharing options which include NFC and Wi-Fi. This makes it easy for you to share files with any compatible device. Moreover, you can as well live stream your adventures without any additional software. The Sony HDR-AS200V can also be controlled remotely thanks to its excellent remote control that can control up to five cameras. Moreover, if you have an NFC enabled smartphone, you can remotely control your action cam as well. However, the remote control comes with an extra charge and so if you don’t necessarily need it, you can do away with it altogether.
