The item received was defective

on 8/22/2014

The item that I received was in previouly opened box, it is not a refurbushed item. The audio does not work propley. It seems that the gain is up too high and it produces a lot of noise. The other reviews tht I have read about the Sony Cam only complain about the audio when its inside the water proof case. The one that I received sounds like crap outside the case. I have the JVC cam as well, it sounds better! The JVC is known to have poor audio, but not in this case. The Video quality is bette

As tough as you are.

The HDR-AS15 is a rugged, wearable full HD video camcorder with built-in Wi-Fi. Weighing in at just 3.2 ounces (with battery) it lets you capture your adventures on the mountain, in the water, and anywhere else you go for your adrenaline fixes.

Mount awesome.

The Sony Action Cam ships with two adhesive, quick-connect mounts and a ruggedized, waterproof housing good down to 197ft. (60m)*. Available accessories from Sony let you mount the Action Cam to just about wherever you can imagine. Additionally, the Action Cam's waterproof housing comes equipped with a standard-sized tripod-type screw mount that makes it compatible with a huge ecosystem of mounts right out of the box.

Full-on Full HD 1080p.

A 1920 x 1080 high definition resolution lets you capture every kicked up rock and every drop of sweat. Capable of 30p recording and playback via HDMI® and compatible HDTV4, the HDR-AS15 delivers stunning clarity, brilliant detail and smooth playback, no matter how rocky the trick was.

Stay sharp with SteadyShot.

Whether you're mountain biking, skiing, skateboarding or surfing, SteadyShot® image stabilization with Active Mode delivers stunningly smooth video from wide angle to full telephoto shooting. In addition, innovative 3-Way Shake-Canceling adds electronic roll stability for even smoother video capture.

Go big and go wide.

With an ultra-wide angle, professional quality Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar® lens, you'll get massive perspective from a tiny camcorder. The 170-degree viewing angle makes sure it's not just you in the picture; it's everything around you. Not just big, the HDR-AS15 can slow it all down. Savor the awesome with HD SLOW 2x (1280 x 720, 60p) and HD SLOW 4x (1280 x 720, 120p). It's ideal for studying and refining form and technique, while holding the moment for everyone to see.
