Sony's New GoPro Killer Might Be the Most Badass Action Cam We've Ever Seen

By Mario Aguilar on at

Sony might just have one-upped every other action camera out there by jamming the best features of all into a three-ounce package including battery. So small. And yet so powerful!

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. While UK pricing's not been announced, over in the US there are two variations: a regular version for $200 and a Wi-Fi version for $270. (so, about £130 / £170.)

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.

Action Cam ships with its own waterproof case which will protect it down to 200 feet.
