Remote Smart phone by Stewart Reid

Looks better than GoPro to me and would buy one tomorrow if you had a remote control, the last thing I want to do with my smart phone is use it as a remote control out in the mud and wet (my phone is NOT waterproof and shock resistant, if I put it in a bag I can't use it!!)

New details have emerged surrounding the action camera Sony hopes can match up to the likes of GoPro, Drift, and other head cam specialists.

The new action trailer and exclusive hands-on video below give us more of a clue as to the Sony Action Cam’s features, tech specs and video quality.

And indeed there are some awesome, unique features to raise eyebrows amongst head cam users and developers alike.

If you’ve never found yourself getting super excited about a lens before (understandable), that may be about to change.

The Sony lens will feature a backlit 16-megapixel Exmor R CMOS sensor for enhanced low-light sensitivity. And much like the high-end Sony DSLR cameras, the helmet cam will feature a Carl Zeiss Tessar glass lens, able to capture a 170° view with potentially some of the sharpest video we have seen from an action sports camera.

Sony Head Strap, Front, Back Shot

It will also feature Sony’s SteadyShot image stabilisation to cope with the inevitable vibration activities such as downhill riding, skydiving and motor racing entail.

In addition to this, an innovative feature called ‘3-Way Shake Cancelling’ adds electronic roll stability, in theory allowing more mobility in how you use and mount the camera, without having a detrimental effect on the video quality.

The next exciting feature surrounds the camera’s video modes. The Sony is the first of its kind to offer 120fps recording at HD 720p. So you should be able to produce an unprecedented quality of slow motion video, perfect for both improving the standard of sports video, as well as for helping refine the techniques and form of your chosen activity.

The Sony will also feature the resolutions one might expect from a top-spec action camera, with Full HD 1080p at 30fps, HD 720p at 30/60fps, as well as standard definition VGA 480p at 30fps.

Also, it now seems that there will be two versions of the Sony helmet camera. The only difference between the two cameras being that only one will feature WiFi capability (and will therefore be more expensive than the version that does not).

This WiFi allows connection of smart devices to the camera, so you can instantly upload video to the likes of Facebook and Twitter. You will also be able to use your smart device as a remote control and viewfinder, allowing you to change the cameras settings and line up the perfect shot.

We have also been given an indication as to the Sony’s base pack, and optional accessories and mounts that will become available.

When you buy the Sony Action Cam, you will receive the camera, a curved and flat adhesive mount, mounting clip, as well as the waterproof housing (up to 60m/197 feet). The waterproof housing features a universal tripod mount to further extend your mounting options.

As for optional extras, Sony will offer head straps, handlebar mounts and a suction cup initially. And the amount of mounting options and accessories available will surely increase in the coming months.

A start/stop record button, built-in microphone, and LCD screen for battery, storage and settings info; the Sony Helmet Camera is proving a very intriguing product indeed.

And while you’re still reeling from the wave of awesome features the Sony has to offer, I’ll sign off and let the video quality do the talking! Check it out, and stay tuned to our blog and newsletter for the latest Sony information!
