The Sony Action Cam HDR-AS200V is an HD video recording device in the vein of the GoPro and costs about $100 less than the FDR-X100V while sharing most of the same features; save for the ability to record 4K Ultra HD video.

Otherwise, the AS200V has a lot going for it. A ZEISS Tessar lens with 170 degree field of view. BIONZ X image processor. 12.8MP back-illuminated Exmore R CMOS image sensor capable of recording Full 1080p HD video @ 60p (50Mbps), 720p HD video @ 120p, or WVGA video @ 240p for slow-motion shots.

The AS200V boasts a clean HDMI output for recording video on an external hard drive. Audio is recorded on a stereo microphone with built-in wind noise reduction. And your shots will be more stable than ever, thanks to improved SteayShot image stabilization that's three times more efficient at reducing vibrations when the Action Cam is used in conjunction with a remote control aerial "drone". Loop recording ensures that you never miss a shot while maximizing available memory card space.

The HDR-AS200V also includes built-in GPS and Wi-Fi for geotagging and remotely controlling the Action Cam via the Sony PlayMemories mobile app (a new Action Cam app will be available in Spring 2015) or to connect the optional Live View Remote Control, a water-proof LCD display.

This Action Cam comes with built-in editing and streaming capabilities. You can make Highlight real videos for instant sharing, or edit together multiple clips to make your own movies. All in-camera. And, thanks to the U-STREAM platform, you can even live stream video directly from the AS200V.
