Sony HDR-AS30V Action Cam Camcorder, HD 1080p, 11.9MP, Wi-Fi, NFC, GPS with Waterproof Case

Product information

A camcorder as unlimited as your experiences. The Sony HDR-AS30V Action Cam is made for adventure with its rugged design and custom waterproof casing. It’s capable of shooting in 1080p Full HD, as well was HD super-slow motion for more detail in every frame. Integrated Wi-Fi even makes backing up your footage with smart devices simple. Taking control with your smartphone is simple too with one touch NFC pairing.

Carl Zeiss optics
Catch every detail with a powerful Carl Zeiss lens. Its ultra-wide 170° angle means you won’t miss a thing. And a super-sensitive Exmor R CMOS sensor guarantees beautiful HD, even in low light. Robust optic build also reduces reflection stray light.

Image stabilisation
Leave shaky footage behind with SteadyShot image stabilisation. It keeps footage smooth when things get rough. Pick from five recording modes, including Full HD and HD super-slow, which shoots 120 frames a second so you can replay the action four times slower.

Waterproof
The Action Cam comes with a waterproof case. Perfect for enduring extreme weather conditions and capturing every detail of your dives.

NFC & Wi-Fi
When the action’s over, watch it back on your smartphone using the PlayMemories Mobile app and Action Cam’s built-in Wi-Fi. You can even use your phone to stop and start recording.

Six recording modes
Including 2x and 4x slow motion recording speeds, the AS30V injects more drama into every twist, turn and jolt of the action.

Includes
Waterproof housing, adhesive mount, USB cable, battery pack and editing software.

Q & As

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 71 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Action camera I only have this a few weeks but so far I have found the picture quality good the features easy to use, I'm currently useing a 64gb micro sd card, It may hold a larger card? The battery lasted 2hrs and 3min with the gps turned on. My only issue is the lack of mounts available or given with the product. 18 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great features and compact design I bought this product a month ago for the use under water. 14 March 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by buy a proper camera I bought this for a skiing trip and it has been a disaster. After setting it up there was no response from the record button. Resetting to factory settings cured the problem - haven't dared to set it up again. Live with the bleep. You need to download some Sony software to access your pictures. This is glitchy, awkward and will not work after every set of updates. Running the updates deleting the programme and reloading sometimes works - often not. Basic accessories are not included in the price, are expensive to buy and cheaply made. Altogether my advice is buy something (anything) else. Go to another manufacturer who are Pro. 01 March 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by quality in a small package Excellent camera in such a small unit priced well to compete with others but in a more compact size not the top sony model but good quality video and photos powerfull camera in such a small unit i would definitely recommend to family and friends . 17 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sction camera Great little camera purchased on spur of the moment used for the first time at night during a light show in Singapore with good results even with photos. The only down is the waterproof case is not the easiest to undow. Would advise to purchase the watch or other viewing device 06 February 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very good price and product Wanted a waterproof camera to fit on motorbike as a dash cam. this one is more streamlined than other top brands. Got some great features to play with. only a couple of things is that the battery doesn't last long with GPS and wifi on, there is no video loop for continuous recording. The mounts supplied is very limited. I have overcome these by buying spare batteries and charger, formatting the memory every other day and switch GPS and wifi off and made a special mount for the bike.. Other than these little niggles a great camera for the money with great play back, good clear picture even at night. Already used it to post idiot drivers on social media sites. 02 February 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good value This was recommended by an in-store adviser as a good option versus the entry-level Go-pros. Having read the reviews (here and on extreme-sports forums) I bought one as a gift for a 21-year-old. It doesn't have LCD playback on the camera, which is the only drawback so far, but you can control the camera, playback and watch 'live' on a phone or tablet so long as you have wifi or data transfer. It seems to have been a great success so far. 27 January 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very good price and product I wanted an action camera for my motorbike so I picked this because its more streamlined than some other cameras and the price was reasonable.excellent video even at night. Just a few problems, one there are no brackets with the camera to enable fitting to bike or car although universal fittings will do. (I made one myself for bike) another problem is the lens fogs up in cold weather and also the battery doesn't last long with GPS and wifi switched on. Very easy to set up, good clear pictures as I use it as a dash cam. Bought extra batteries which solved battery issue. Perfect for my use waterproof and doesn't look out of place on bike.sound is a bit muffled with case on but not an issue as a dash cam. 20 January 2016
