Full review: Sony Action Cam

A relative latecomer, how does the Sony Action Cam stack up?

Sony is a relative later comer to the burgeoning action camera segment, which is something of a surprise given its heritage as a camera maker and AV in general. The segment leader is undoubtedly GoPro who were inspired by people using standard (but bulky for the purpose) Sony Handycams for action footage. There are also a few other players including Muvi and JVC. Like all things in technology, however, competitors don't stand still and Sony's first Action Cam has just entered mainstream availability only for GoPro to release 4K-capable Hero3 Black Edition. So how does the Sony Action Cam hold up? Read our full review of the Sony Action Cam to find out.

    Sony never recovered from losing their Walkman business to iPod.
