Details of Sony HDR-AS50
The Sony HDR-AS50 action camera is an action oriented camcorder by Sony, the well regarded Japanese electronics manufacturer. Sony has already had many successful products for videography and photography, and this is a part of Sony’s attempts to enter the action camera market. This action camera incorporates decades of Sony’s expertise in videography and some of its cutting edge technology at a fairly affordable price.
The Sony HDR-AS50 action camera has a fairly simple design with a black body and a camera lens at the front. It has recording indicator lights at various places so that it is visible from any angle. It has a small monochrome LCD display and a few controls on its side. A clear waterproof case is included as standard for underwater use. Various mounts can be attached to its bottom and it also has a tripod receiver socket built into its bottom.
Sensor and lens
The camcorder uses a wide angle and sharp Zeiss Tessar lens for great image quality. It is paired with Sony’s proprietary Exmor R sensor which can capture a low noise and clear image even in adverse lighting conditions. It has Sony’s SteadyShot optical image stabilisation technology to reduce the effect of camera shake on the image. This is especially important for an action camera since it will likely be used in situations such as mounted on a bike, helmet or ski while performing various action sports. Such conditions can produce a lot of camera shake and so it is necessary to stabilise the video. It can shoot full HD video and capture 11.1 megapixel still images. It is capable of capturing 4K Time Lapse shots and 120 fps video at 720p resolution.
As a part of bringing technology from other video products into action cameras, Sony has used the same BIONZ X sensor that is used in its other video products. This processor can quickly and faithfully reproduce details and textures as seen by the naked eye. It enables more realistic and natural images with richer tonal gradations and lower noise in low light conditions.
The camcorder has built-in WiFi and can connect to your smartphone via the Action Cam App. You can use the app to transfer content or control the camera. In fact, you can use the app to control up to 5 such cameras at once. The camera also supports live streaming via Ustream. It has a built-in stereo microphone array for recording audio.
