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.
If you're looking for a camcorder to capture all your memories in Full High Definition video, look no further than the Sony Handycam HDR-CX130 Camcorder. The CX130 captures 1920 x 1080 Full HD video that looks great played back even on large HD TVs. It features a wide angle G lens that lets you record sharp, detailed images at a 29.8mm focal length. If you're looking for a camcorder to take on vacation or record high quality family movies then this camera is definitely up to the challenge.
If you're looking for a camera that can shoot fast action- whether that is sports, wildlife or even your kids, then the Sony Alpha SLT-A35 is perfect for you. This camera has interchangeable lenses but is not as expensive as SLR cameras like the Sony Alpha A230L or the Nikon D5100. This is because the Alpha SLT-A35 is a Single Lens Translucent (SLT) camera, a new range of cameras that are perfect for those who want to get more creative with photography than is possible with a compact point and shoot camera like the Nikon Coolpix S9100. This camera comes with an 18-55mm lens that can be swapped out for other lenses, just like a DSLR.
Do you love taking videos and putting them on your blog, YouTube or social networking sites? It’s time to upgrade the quality of those videos with this funky handheld camera from Sony. The Sony Bloggie MHS-PM5 is a small candy bar style camcorder that is easy to carry everywhere you go. This device is available in various colors including blue, white, pink, and dark purple. It has a rotating lens which when closed stays protected when the camera is not in use. When you open it, the lens rotates up to 270 degrees allowing you to record yourself while looking at the 2.4 inch LCD screen.
If you want to start getting serious about creating high definition videos and have grown up past the Flip HD then the Sony HDR-XR500V 120gb HDD Camcorder is equipped to take you that step further. This is no toy.
The Sony HDR-XR500V would fit in a loose jacket pocket, but is big because it’s powerful, built sturdy but will fit comfortably in your hand using the side grip with some smooth depressions in the hard drive to sink your back fingers into. Inside this professional looking piece of equipment is a 120GB hard drive that can hold up to 48 hours of first-rate high definition video or up to 84 hours of standard definition footage. The built-in GPS unit will tag all of your videos with their location, which is a great way of indexing your collection.
Truly professional video camcorders don’t get any cheaper or more entry level than the brilliant Sony HVR-HD1000U Camcorder, designed to be both mobile but with a professional appearance and feature set. With high definition recording, this camcorder is perfect for a serious videographer on a budget. Forget the toys like the Canon VIXIA HF100 HD Camcorder, the Sony HVR-HD1000U Camcorder will make you into a real filmmaker.
This camera is great for either HD or standard definition. You won’t be disappointed with the HDV1080i video recordings that you can capture on professional tape or standard consumer MiniDV tapes and has a built-in converter that easily allows you to create DV material for standard DVD productions.
Sony’s HDR-SR11 is one of the best hard-drive AVCHD camcorders on the market today. It allows you to take high quality video and still shots also. This takes away the bother of carrying around both a camera and a camcorder as this device packs those two things into one package. Sony's newly designed CMOS image sensor delivers these impressive 10.2-megapixel still images and 5-megapixel video footage.
