Sony HDR-AS200V review
Test score %
There's no shortage of Full HD action cameras out there, but Sony claims that the Sony HDR-AS200V is a cut above the rest. For a start, it doesn't bin pixels through compression, which should improve resolution and cut down on the jagged lines and blocky artefacts you sometimes find on action camera footage. Meanwhile, using professional-grade file formats and image stabilisation should help you get fantastic-quality footage. Are these claims borne out by the results? We took the HDR-AS200V out for a spin to find out.
