It's no secret that I'm a fan of GoPro sports cameras. And why not, particularly when there appears to be nothing comparable on the market - perhaps until now.

Welcome the all new Sony Full HD Action camera, the HDRA S15 (HDR-AS15K with the full kit). As at the time of writing (September 16), its not actually on the market yet, but my friends at SportsCamera.com.au have managed to get hold of a pre-production model for testing - and preliminary tests indicate it is VERY good.

Will it be a GoPro "killer"? I doubt it. BUT, I think it will manage to do what many others have failed to do so far, and that is put a dent in what might be arguably called GoPro's (almost) market monopoly.

The HDRA-S15 comes in two packages - one which is just the camera and a mount (HDRA S15), and another which comes with the camera and various mounts, a desktop charger, etc. (HDR-AS15K). Its unclear yet as to whether Australia will get both, but we will be at least get the HDR-AS15K.

As for pricing, its comparable to the GoPro. Well, actually, that's not quite true. The Sony comes with a 16MP CMOS Sensor, Wi-Fi ready to go, and 120FPS. The Sony will connect to an app to run on your smart phone orf tablet.

Whereas if you want Wi-Fi, it will cost you an extra (approximately) $149 on top for the GoPro Wi-Fi BacPac and remote control.

Sony, on its website, says that it is an ultra-compact, lightweight, point-of-view action camera which records stunning Full HD video suitable for a wide range of sports from surfing to snowboarding, mountain biking, and anything else you can think of! This would of course include motorcycling, although I think some more mounting options may be required for us motorcyclists.

They also state that it captures breathtaking scenes and smooth, stable images of your adventures so easily, it's a "breeze".

SportsCamera.com.au tested the 120 FPS (frames per second) feature using their doggie family as subjects. The video at the bottom of this page was filmed at 120FPS, then reduced to 60FPS to create a beautifully detailed, full HD slow motion sequence.

The original video is of course much better quality than the optimised one below, but you get the idea. Its FANTASTIC!

So, let's (roughly) compare the GoPro Hero2 with the Sony HDR-AS15K:


Some of the features of the Sony HDRAS15 are:
16MP Exmor 'R' CMOS Sensor
Action Cam features a class-leading Exmor R CMOS Sensor, which results in outstanding image quality, even when shooting in low-light conditions. The Action Cam also features a time-lapse recording mode, allowing you to take amazing 16 Megapixel still images at intervals of 5, 10, 30 and 60 seconds, to make sure you never miss the money-shot.

Full HD 1080 (30p) HD 720 (60p, 120p)
With High Definition (HD) 1080 recording, the effective scanning line is 1,080, which is more than twice the number in conventional standard definition (SD) format, and video data quality of High Definition 1080p recording is about 4.5 times more. The difference between HD picture and SD quality is immediately noticeable. The wider 16:9 aspect ratio of HD approximates the shape of the human visual field, making you feel like you are actually in the picture.

Built-in WiFi
Wireless LAN (Local Area Network), enables wireless compatible devices to network without cables. There are 3 standards: 802.11a, 802.11b and 802.11g.

170 degree Wide Angle Carl Zeiss lens
High quality precision optics from the German company Carl Zeiss. Carl Zeiss lenses are unique because every lens must pass stringent computerised quality testing for 100% quality assurance before they can be used in a Sony camera.
