Product information
Get in the thick of it with the Sony HDR-AS30V Action Camcorder in black, the perfect tool for making exciting outdoor movies.

Share your adventures

Whether you're into extreme sports or want to immortalise family outings, the Sony AS30 Action Cam will become best new photo and video buddy when you're outdoors. Shoot amazing footage and images with a camera that's ready to rock.

It's been fitted with a back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS sensor for brilliant crispness and low noise when shooting in dim lighting. Usually seen in high-end Sony cameras, this proprietary sensor rewards you with superb responsiveness and an 11.9-megapixel resolution for rich details and lifelike colour.

High-octane, high-quality shooting

The Sony AS30 shoots in Full HD resolution so that all your photos and video adventures look as good when you watch them back as they did when you were experiencing them – even if you're underwater.

A 170-degree Carl Zeiss Tessar Lens allows you to take in more of every scene, directing more light to the sensor for better-looking results with every frame. You'll see the difference in a product from one of the world's leading manufacturers.

This great lens offers the widest possible angle without fisheye distortion, so you can record panoramic scenes packed with drama. Capture amazing views of surf, ski and hiking escapades - or shoot relaxed videos of friends, family and pets enjoying outdoor living.

SteadyShot keeps your footage smoother and more stable.

Hear everything

You'll really be taken back into the action as the Sony HDRAS30V Outdoor Video Camera features a built-in stereo microphone that records realistic audio to really enhance your movies and photos.

Whether you're in the midst of pounding surf, whizzing down some rapids or simply taking in the silence of a high mountain view, you'll capture every aural as well as every visual detail.

Advanced built-in WiFi

The Sony AS30V Action Cam comes with built in WiFi, with a WiFi remote function that allows you to use your smartphone to remotely operate start and stop functions, and access previews.

Use the wrist-mounted Live View remote (sold separately) to use the same functions, even if you're in the water. It's the ideal add-on feature to video surfing or kayaking.

Video enhancement features

This dynamic Sony action camera not only lets you shoot jaw-dropping movies and still images, it's also fitted with GPS and PlayMemories Home for even more fun and versatility.

Make the most of features like Map View, GPS Data Overlay on Video, Movie Rotation and others so that your videos are educational as well as exhilarating. Remember more of your adventures with integrated GPS mapping, quick performance charts, simple video stitching and straightforward video rotation.

Connected for sharing

NFC technology allows you to simply touch the HDRAS30 to another NFC-enabled device to connect, then transfer share photos and videos via WiFi. There's no complex configuration needed for Android devices, and you can easily control the camera remotely for complete convenience.

Lighter camera for mobile video shooting

The Sony HDRAS30 Action Camcorder has been made for portability, allowing you to tell many different kinds of story. It weighs less than 65 g and offers a sleek, aerodynamic design that minimises wind resistance.

These great features combine with easy-access controls to make the camera easier to use in tricky or demanding circumstances – even if you're wearing gloves. Slip on the included protective housing to use it underwater up to 5 metres, and to give it rugged impact protection.

Don't hold back – use the Sony HDR-AS30V Action Camcorder in black to video all your outdoor exploits and achievements.

Great as an action camera, fantastic footage. First used one heliboarding in New Zealand, as good as I remember with fantastic clarity and contrast. Sound quality is as good as any action camera but it has a mic input if you want to use it with a good mic.
No burst high res photos - 5sec is lowest speed for time lapse.
