Sony’s tiny ruggedized Action Cam gets official with 16MP Exmor R, WiFi, $199+ price tag hands-onBy Zach Honig posted Aug 29th 2012 10:42AMHands-OnSony’s tiny ruggedized Action Cam gets more official with 16MP Exmor R, WiFi, $199 price tag handson videoRemember that itsy bitsy GoPro competitor we spotted at Sony’s CE Week booth earlier this summer? Well, it’s gearing up for an official release late next month. Dubbed Action Cam — a fitting name given that it’ll live mounted anywhere from sky diving helmets to downhill skis — it’ll ship in late September or early October for $199. In a surprising twist, the incredibly small HD shooter will also be getting WiFi — that version will be available for $270. Both cameras are identical save for wireless functionality, but considering that WiFi enables remote configuration and viewfinder capability for framing your shots there’s no video-capable LCD on the device itself, you’re gonna want to shell out the extra 70 bucks. Regardless of which flavor you choose, you’ll net a very capable camcorder with a 16-megapixel Exmor R sensor great for low-light shooting and fixed-zoom Carl Zeiss lens, complete with SteadyShot image stabilization, a 1080/30p capture mode and a 720p option at 120 frames-per-second, enabling some pretty slick slow-motion effects.
