Sports action cameras are popular right now and any outdoor adventurist on the hunt for an attractively inexpensive model should take Sony's offering into consideration. The small and sleek design is a step up from the square-enclosed GoPro and it holds charges longer. Sony offers five MP4 recording options and the shooter has digital image stabilization, along with a time-lapse shooting mode that captures 16MP stills. On-the-go videographers will appreciate some of bundled goods like the waterproof case with tripod mount.
