CNET Editors’ Rating 1 user review The Good High bitrate recording and a bunch of extra features like GPS make this Sony’s best Action Cam so far, with good still image and audio quality added to the mix. A new tally light on the top of the camera makes it easy to see when you’re recording. The Bad The live view remote can’t be used for photo or video playback, and a microSDXC card is needed for high bitrate recording. Exposure during regular 28Mbps video recording is uneven, while water tends to cling to the front of the waterproof case. The Bottom Line Built-in image stabilization and high bitrate recording make this Sony’s best Action Cam yet, but there are still a few usability quirks remaining. 8.0 Overall Design 7.0 Features 9.0 Performance 8.0 Image quality 8.0

Battery life is great, with the Sony outperforming the GoPro Hero 3+ on 1080/30p recording at the default bitrate. The GoPro managed 1 hour 59 minutes before caving, while the Sony lasted 2 hours 17 minutes.

The record button on the Sony is so big you can’t miss it, right on the back panel of the camera. The Action Cam has two other physical buttons that can be used to select between shooting options on the side LCD. Operation is simple, and slightly easier to get used to than the two-button operation of the GoPro.

At the top, Sony has added a new tally light to keep an eye on the recording status of the camera. It lights up red when recording and is much more useful than the secondary light located at the back of the model, which is so small it can be obscured by some of the accessories.
