Action Cam with Wi-Fi
Stabilized, 1080p60, slow motion p120 - HDRAS15
1. The stabilizer is a big deal.
2. HD mode 1080p60 now after the firmware upgrade v.3.
3. The Super slow mode 720p120 is a great option.
1. The shape factor: nicely fit into hand grip, but I would prefer rectangle bottom to put on a table.
2. The back door is too loose.
3. The waterproof case is great option for underwater shooting but too big for water-resistant conditions (like snow, some rain). I would make only one back door for everything (battery, memory card, USB, video out, mic) and touch sensitive screen for controls, OR a remote control (for those who has no smart phone). I would also cover the mic with one big waterproof removable plastic screw which one can remove with finger nail or a quarter or dime (or small ridge on the top).
A tight case from soft plastic will probably also make it water-resistant (two oval cylinder caps inserted each in the other (one smaller and one bigger, one with a hole for objective, see the picture attached).
Is it possible to make it a night vision (IR camera) option within same size?

Sony Action Cam with Wi-Fi
The camera shoots a nice video but we have encountered problems that should not occur. The camera will turn itself on and film. We have learned not to put the battery in the camera until we are ready to film.
With the rubber o-ring around the door, the camera heats up the inside of the case and causes condensation and the case to fog up. We have what we thought would be wonderful video but the video is fogged up. We removed the o-ring from the door and that solved the problem but then the case is not water tight.

Busy Mike Flying
I purchased for use boating and friends & family gatherings. This weekend my new pilot friend invited my to fly in a small four seater. I hadn't set up the Wi-Fi yet but the shots I captured taking off, in flight, landing, and on the ground were exceptional when viewed. The depth of field clarity is excellent close to far. The Pilot's head hairs were very clear and the ground 3000 ft down very clear in the same shot. Simple push button start/stop. Action crisp.
