by BikeCam53 Excellent Action Cam
Bought this action cam for use on a motorcycle. Mounted to my helmet (had to use some of the other guy's pieces for that). Image stabilization is fantastic. 1080p 30fps with GPS and wifi connecting to a very useful wrist remote and live streaming viewfinder gave me 120 min of battery life. Add the extra battery and ACC-TRDCX charger will complete the package. The Super Slo Mo setting is brilliant.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MMC1 Remote needs some refining = remote Cam turn on
Bought the HDR-AS100V bundle which included the remote.
Everything about the camera is just fantastic but there seems to be some vital data that's missing on the remote which would make it an even better unit.
As already mention from other reviews, the showing of the battery life of the AS100V camera would be a great feature especially when controlling multiple cameras.
Im aware of Sony's advisory of the approx 140min battery life but it would be helpful not to constantly be mindful of the camera start to clock calculate when approx power will cease.
Micro SD remaining time would also be a plus as would the data for Photo and INTVL.
Most importantly the remote needs a remote turn-on function for the main camera unit.
I do not know why Sony did not include this in the remote. Even the GoPro has this feature.
If there's a firmware in the future this is a must!!!!!
The turn on of the remote should automatically turn on the AS100V camera when its paring!!!
