4.0 out of 5 stars I'm fairly pleased, 21 Aug. 2013
This review is from: Sony HDRAS15 Sports Action Camcorder with Full HD and Wi-Fi - Black (Camera)
Everyone else has more or less said all there is to say about this little camera from a technical perspective. So I shall only add that, apart from its good and bad points, even in its waterproof case the camera is quite discreet. I haven't tried any of the mounting accessories yet because I've just been using Velcro on the left side of the waterproof case, a mounting method that has so far worked fine for me. But I did get a battery charger and a spare battery from EXPRO via Amazon. I also got another camera similar to HDR-AS15: JVC's GC-AX1 (now GC-AX2). Perhaps even more discreet than the Sony, GC-AX1 is waterproof down to 5m without a housing. So cyclists and bikers should never have any problems on the sort of rainy days we always get here in the UK. While on balance I would say that the Sony produces better pictures and audio than the JVC, the latter would probably be less noticeable on your bike or motorcycle in wet weather (because it doesn't need a protective housing). The JVC also uses full-size SD cards and has better mounting options straight out of the box. Otherwise both cams were around the same price, which was considerably less than any of the GoPros or the Contour+2. I also like the fact that Sony and JVC have been making video cameras for a lot longer than the new kids on the block.
