New intuitive user interface for easy operation

Selecting and changing features has never been easier thanks to the new, intuitive user interface. All menus are easily accessible. Enjoy a seamless camera setting experience and find the perfect setting for your shooting needs. Camera can also be turned on/off via smartphone with PlayMemories Mobile.

SteadyShot™ beats bumps and blur

From the rockiest trail to the wildest surf, you want to shoot crisp, clear video your audience will actually enjoy watching. SteadyShot normalises the oscillation the image brings to the sensor. This means motion blur and noise levels are reduced, even in low light.

Exmor R™ CMOS sensor with enhanced sensitivity

Mountain-biking downhill at breakneck speed at dusk? Kayaking at dawn? Your footage is still going to look great, thanks to the low-light sensitivity with improved image clarity and drastically reduced grain provided by Sony’s Exmor R CMOS sensor.

BIONZ X™ for superior detail and texture

Sony's image processing engine faithfully reproduces textures and details, as seen by the naked eye, via extra high-speed processing. Together with front-end LSI (large scale integration) that accelerates processing, BIONZ X enables more natural details, more realistic images, richer tonal gradations, and lower noise whether you're shooting photos or movies.

Capture epic wide-angle views with the ZEISS® Tessar lens or choose standard but striking views. Either way, you'll always be capturing beautiful shots of the most challenging ski slopes, mountain trails, swirling rapids, or pitted asphalt paths.

Angle of view adjustment function

Discover new flexibility to vary your shooting in action for dramatic effects and added excitement. For example, your angle of view can be switched between “Wide” and “Narrow” in two levels. In addition, seamlessly adjustable zoom mode enables you to change zooming while shooting. 

Built-in stereo mic captures quality sound

Make a great movie even better with great audio. Built-in stereo microphone allows you to capture sounds of your adventure in two-track stereo, naturally. Clear sound with reduced noise enhances the most sophisticated movie work you can produce.

4K Time-lapse Capture

Time-lapse Capture lets you produce time-lapse movies easily by using high-quality 4K still images shot at designated intervals. Then Action Cam Movie Creator (v. 5.1 for Windows, v. 3.1 for Mac) or Action Cam App (v. 2.0) simply transforms these images into an impressive time-lapse movie.

Highlight Movie Maker with face detection 

Discover how easily built-in Highlight Movie Maker works with face detection for in-camera auto editing. Highlight Movie Maker also supports a wider range of scenes — not just sports performance but also daily situations and travel — automatically selecting highlight points of footage to create a highlight movie, complete with background music. You can share your work immediately by using smartphone.

Manual control for sophisticated movie style

Explore sophisticated shooting features for thrilling action movies you'll  be proud to share with family, friends, and fans. Use advanced manual settings like white balance and AE shifting, and optimise brightness and hue to match images of other camcorders for easier movie editing. Show your skill and style as director and action star.

Live Streaming via Ustream®

Share ski runs, killer waves (and wipeouts) in real time. Stream scenes as they happen with high-quality picture and sound.

120fps at HD resolution for slo-mo video

See every detail of fast-moving action in smooth slow motion, thanks to 120fps high frame rate recording at HD resolution.

Burst Shooting

Catch fast-moving action with burst shooting. This allows you to take a maximum of eight high-quality shots of a trick or transition, making it the perfect feature for those who love go back and analyse their style. Settings are 8fps/1sec, 5fps/2sec, and 2fps/5sec.

Motion Shot LE

Multi Camera Control

Use up to five cameras to get exciting ground-up or head-down shots. And control them all effortlessly with Live-View Remote or smartphone with PlayMemories Mobile™ app.

Action Cam Movie Creator for easy creative editing

Make your movies look even better with Action Cam Movie Creator. Produce and edit videos quickly and easily thanks to a range of features such as 4K Time-lapse Capture and slo-mo video. You can also flip your videos clockwise or counter clockwise by 90° with Movie Rotation, or use Multi View to combine up to four movie footage segments – captured simultaneously by different cameras – and make a split-screen composite.

Convenient Loop Recording

Don’t worry about missing the perfect moment with loop recording. Loop overwrite shooting can be chosen with duration options of 5, 20, 60, 120 minutes, or “unlimited”. Use it to capture the decisive moment without worrying about running out of capacity.

Action Cam App

Intuitive mobile app lets you “prove yourself” anytime anywhere — via easy video editing with time-lapse, slow motion/speed up, and wireless movie file transfer.

Underwater Housing as standard gear

Take Action Cam diving to 60m/197ft. using supplied Underwater Housing — no need to buy optional gear. Equipped with a flat panel, it lets you control all camera buttons easily through the housing. What's more, it shields this hardy compact camera from shocks, damp, rust, dust, and sand. Enjoy carefree aquatic adventure and extend your exploration to tough terrain.

Enhanced convenience 

Built-in tripod socket means you can quickly attach your Action Cam to a tripod for rock-steady shots. And, USB connections are now located on the back of the camera for enhanced ease of accessory attachment.
