Action Cam and Live-View Remote team up
Grab Action Cam and strap on Live-View Remote. More than just wristwear, this compact new remote controller also doubles as a mountable controller for handy use with many optional accessories including Shooting Grip. You're ready for any adventure.
Live-View Remote for easy, full control
Perfect pairing for shooting success. Live-View Remote now provides full command of Action Cam including turning on/off the power. They even share the same friendly UI design for seamless teamwork in action. So however you shoot, wherever you go, your camera and remote are in sync and ready for adventure.
Flexibly mountable Live-View Remote
This compact new remote controller can be not only used as a wristwear accessory but also as a mountable controller in combination with a mount adaptor and other mountable accessories. And, take full control through a Wi-Fi® connection while turning the camera on/off via new Bluetooth® to save battery power.
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 normalizes the oscillation the image brings to the sensor. This means motion blur and noise levels are reduced, even in low light.
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.
Sharp, ultra-wide ZEISS® Tessar lens
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 optimize brightness and hue to match images of other camcorders for easier movie editing.

120fps at HD resolution for slo-mo video
