    Great quality and performance. I bought this camera for its capabilities and many other reasons but the 3 main reasons are: Image quality. When you buy cameras from Sony you can't go wrong the colors, dynamic range and saturation are very good in both photos and videos. Sound. The sound capture by the built-in stereo microphone combined with its wind noise reduction feature is very good and actually usable for videos. Image stabilization. The image stabilization on this camera is by far the best of any other action-cam on the market and makes the need for a gimbal unnecessary, it minimizes shake and vibration keeping footage steady. These are my main 3 reasons for purchasing this camera but are not the only ones, the size, its shape and when used with its protective housing it can take a beating and be used to record under water.

    I have a GoPro and thought I would venture out with a different and I regretted my purchase with this cam, first of all the battery life is terrible, the settings are not very user friendly in my opinion. The worst thing about this cam for me is the fact that I recorded a small wedding for my friend and when I tried to view the video the file was corrupt which was a disappointment for me because I was going to give them the video! Thanks for the missed memories Sony.....
