It’s about time that Sony got into the action camera market. While they've tried to cash in on the popularity of v-logging and hand held video with the Sony Bloggie, nothing has come close to competing with small rugged cameras like the GoPro HD HERO2 or the Contour GPS HD.
The Sony Action Cam HDR-AS15 has been designed to do just that, but coming in smaller and lighter than most of its competitors. This tiny Wi-Fi-equipped HDR-AS15 can shoot full 1080p HD video and has stunning low light sensitivity, as well as that it takes 16 megapixel photos, all in practically any weather condition in its included waterproof case. Also included are a rechargeable battery and a number of adhesive mounts. Weighing less than 90 grams (with battery) and featuring an ultra wide angle Carl Zeiss lens, this tiny camera can capture a gorgeous 170 degree field of view, but you also have the 120° option too.
Small and light video cameras that you can mount to your helmet, wrist, bike or just about anywhere have become extremely popper among extreme spot enthusiasts. The previous Contour and other sports cameras like the GoPro HD Hero 2 changed the way people were able to share their experiences in snow sports, surfing and biking. With the Contour GPS HD, high definition video is about to become even more personal. This new camera has a built-in GPS receiver that tracks your location with pinpoint accuracy and records your location, speed, and altitude.
The GoPro line of super tiny, super durable cameras have become a bit of an industry standard when it comes to sports and outdoor movie making. From surfing, sky diving and even doggie cams, GoPro videos are all over the internet right now and are deemed to become ever more ubiqitus with the launch of the brand new GoPro HD Hero2. A fully HD and fully overhauled GoPro that's even easier to use, but remains the same tiny size.

Kodak Zx1 is very compact and pocket-sized, just like the Flip Ultra camcorder.
Are you disappointed with the quality of your video camera in low light?
