By Evo (Trail, OR) September 25, 2014
Review submitted for Sony HDR-AS30V High Definition POV Action Video Camera - OPEN BOX (SNHDRAS30VOB)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: Easy to use, generally good picture quality, very good battery life, good value, image stabilizer.
Cons: Poor sound in waterproof case.
Other Comments: I bought this action cam as an open box item for about $135. I received it about 7 days after ordering. I downloaded and printed manual and read and completed setup on trip to Maui. I've used it on two road outtings and two snorkel outtings so far. I tested the case without the camcorder on one snorkel trip to insure that it was water tight. I purchased wrist band holder and float accessories separately for snorkeling. I've been very satisfied with the operation of the camcorder, image quality and easy of use so far. This is the first action cam I have purchased or used. When comparing with GoPro it appeared to give more value even when including accessories you have to buy sepaccessorialarately and the image stabilizer which GoPro dosen't come with seems to be a significant plus. Other accessories that I purchased separately include a spare battery and AC charger and a HDMI - micro HDMI cable to play back on TV.
