I’ve been looking for another action-sports camera to accompany my GoPro setup and lately, Sony’s advancements in this industry have caught my eye. Their HDR-AS15 has gotten very good reviews and is probably the best alternative to GoPro’s uber-expensive Hero3 Black Edition (which I might add is 400 compared to Sony’s which is only $250).
The only downside so far that I see with the Sony is that it doesn’t quite have as many mounting options — yet. But I’m sure that will soon change. For the most bang for your buck though, the Sony seems pretty decent.
