by Sayan Chakravarty

It feels so strange that just a few years back that video camera were these big things which were a hassle to operate and it was almost impossible to capture good quality videos until the equipment was priced a several thousand dollars. Fast forward a several years and now we have tiny action cams that can capture high quality videos up a mountain, on a bike or even under water. GoPro might the market leader in the class but now there are several options available that are equally good. Sony’s HRD-AS15 model is a good contender but the Japanese brand has introduced a new action cam ‘HDR-AS100V’ which will available in Japan starting March 14.
