The good High bitrate recording and a bunch of extra features like GPS make this Sony's best Action Cam so far, with good still image and audio quality added to the mix. A new tally light on the top of the camera makes it easy to see when you're recording.
The bad The live view remote can't be used for photo or video playback, and a microSDXC card is needed for high bitrate recording. Exposure during regular 28Mbps video recording is uneven, while water tends to cling to the front of the waterproof case.
The bottom line Built-in image stabilization and high bitrate recording make this Sony's best Action Cam yet, but there are still a few usability quirks remaining.
