The new Sony Action Cam's billboard feature is HD video recording at 1280 x 720, 60 or 120 fps (for slow motion) or 1920x1080 at 30 fps. Under the hood the camera sports a 16-megapixel Exmor R CMOS sensor, and a 170-degree Carl Zeiss® Tessar lens.The new camera will be available in a regular version for $200 and a Wi-Fi version for $270.
Like other action cameras, you know Sony will be producing bunches of accessories so you can mount the camera to yourself in a variety of extreme sporting situations. A bike mount, a waterproof headstrap, and an angle adapter will all be available soon for under $30 a pop.
Action Cam ships with its own waterproof case which will protect it down to 200 feet. Can bundling big features into a smaller package make up for the competition's head start? We'll have to wait and see. [Sony]
