Sony enters in action camera market - GoPro who ?


Yet another one who didn't designed a brick to attach the the helmet...

Not much info so far:
SteadyShot® image stabilization technology, Exmor® R CMOS image sensor, and an ultra-wide angle Carl Zeiss® Tessar® lens.

No size, weight, resolution, fps, AV out, nothing, will have to wait.

I bet they didn't care about making it UHF friendly

I love the shape of the Go Pro, it is easy to mount to a P/T, this thing looks like it would be a pain to mount.

I want more. Maybe Canon and Nikon to get into this market. Though Sony's rep in video is solid.

It looks good but will there be an option the rotate the image 90degrees so you can lay it on its side, that would reduce the profile substantially otherwise you have a big sail on top, of bottom if on a multi.

Sure...
- I am very confident it spits UHF noise as crazy !
- no AV out - this is official, but with the new 30 grams matchbox sized HDMI converter boards, is no more an issue
- no tilt-able head... I would love to have this camera in a webbie/bloggie case... maybe a future project to relocate it in a new case
