The Sony HDR-AS15 Golf Action Camera Package helps you analyze your swing.
Sony has designed the Golf Action Camera Package specifically for use on the links. The HDR-AS15 video camera is rugged enough for outdoor use, and it shoots HD video that can be played back in slow motion, so you can improve your swing. The golf package also includes a redemption card for the V1 Golf App, available via iTunes®, so you can really dig into the details of upping your game.
The golf accessory pack includes everything you need to set up in just about any circumstances. The included weatherproof housing protects the camera if a sudden rainstorm begins — it's the same case divers use when they take the camera deep underwater. The kit also includes a skeleton frame with universal tripod mount (tripod not included), and adhesive mounts that can stick to flat or curved surfaces. There's also a hinged mount for even more options. Sony even throws in an 8GB microSD card so you can get started right away.
Hit an incredible shot? The HDR-AS15 lets you share your gorgeous fairway drive via Wi-Fi, so everybody knows your hard work is paying off. The wireless connection also allows you to use a compatible smartphone or tablet as a remote viewing device, so you can review your golf outing while relaxing in the clubhouse later on.
Works great! Records swing in slow motion for great opportunity to see faults and corrections.
Pros: Sets up quick and easy. Great picture quality. Records in slow motion for easy review of golf swing. Can pop the cars into adapter and download to computer easily for viewing.
Cons: Had trouble connecting with iPhone to preview screen and downloading to phone is not quick. But was worth the money for my use

Overview: The Sony HDR-AS15 is a lightweight, durable digital HD video camera designed to capture point of view during action sports. It comes with a waterproof clear plastic case, and can be mounted in a variety of places, using the supplied surface mounts and other optional mounts. It can record Full HD 1080p video as well as high quality 2MP still images. The AS15 also has built-in Wi-Fi so you can share your videos wirelessly to your smartphone or tablet. This Action Cam Golf Training Pack includes the AS15 camera, plus the AKA-SF1 Skeleton Frame, Golf Clip clamp-on mount, and an 8 GB microSDHC card.
Golf Training Pack: This Action Cam Golf Training Pack lets you use the AS15 Action Cam to capture, compare, and improve your swing. Using the downloadable V1 Golf App, you can compare your swing to those of numerous PGA, LPGA, and Champions Tour Players. The app includes split-screen swing analysis, a full library of Tour Pro swings, and a full suite of analysis tools.
Note: The V1 Golf App is a premium app. There may be a minor charge for the download.
Image Sensor: The AS15 is equipped with a 1/2.3" Exmor R CMOS image sensor with 16.8-million gross pixels and 11.9-million effective pixels.
Lens: The ultra wide angle Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens gives you a wide 170° perspective. It has a bright F2.8 aperture, and a 15.3mm focal length (35mm equivalent) for video. If desired, you can set the camera to record at a narrower 120° field angle.
Recording Media: You can record HD video and Still Images onto Memory Stick Micro (Mark2), microSD, and microSDHC memory cards. An 8GB memory card can hold approximately 60 minutes of video at the highest resolution or about 10,500 2MP still images.
Note: Class 4 or higher microSD cards are recommended.
Built-in Wi-Fi: The AS15 has built-in Wi-Fi (IEEE 802.11b/g/n). You can operate the camera using the Smart Remote Control function, or transfer and display images on to a smartphone or tablet wirelessly via the downloadable "PlayMemories Mobile" app (compatible with iOS and Android). The Smart Remote Control function allows you to start/stop recording, change shooting mode, and change the SteadyShot and Field Angle settings.
Video Recording: The HDR-AS15 can record Full HD AVCHD video (MPEG-4 AVC/H.264) with AAC audio. You can choose from five recording resolution options:
|Display||Recorded Image||Resolution||Frame Rate|
|HQ||Highest resolution||1920 x 1080||30p|
|STD||High resolution||1280 x 720||30p|
|SLOW||Slow motion image recorded at 2x frame rate (no audio)||1280 x 720||60p|
|SSLOW||Super slow motion image recorded at 4x frame rate (no audio)||1280 x 720||120p|
|VGA||Standard Resolution||640 x 480||30p|
Still Image Recording: The AS15 can record JPEG still images with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 (16:9). Since the camera isn't designed for single image shooting, multiple still photos are taken at regular intervals. You can choose from 5, 10, 30, and 60 second intervals.
SteadyShot: The camera has built-in SteadyShot for reducing camera-shake when shooting. When the field angle is set to 170°, SteadyShot will be set to Off. When SteadyShot is On, the field angle will be set to 120°. SteadyShot is not effective in Super Slow Motion recording mode.
Viewing Images: The HDR-AS15 has a micro-HDMI connection on the bottom of the camera. You can connect the camera to a TV that has an HDMI input with a microHDMI-to-HDMI cable (not included). You can play back movies or still images via HDMI, and select them using the Previous and Next buttons on the camera.
Battery Options: The AS15 comes with the NP-BX1 Lithium-Ion rechargeable battery. The camera will also accept NP-BG1, and NP-FG1 batteries. The battery is charged in the camera via USB, or using the optional AC-UD20 USB charger (sold separately). The Recording, Playback, and Charging time of the batteries (in minutes) are as follows:
|Battery Pack||Continuous Recording Time||Typical Recording Time||Playback Time||Charging Time|
USB Power Supply: When the camera is connected to a computer via USB, you can set the camera to be powered by the connected device. This allows you to operate the camera while it is connected to your computer.
Accessories: The HDR-AS15 has the following supplied and optional accessories:
Computer Compatibility: The HDR-AS15 comes with no software, but requires you to download "PlayMemories Home" software from the Sony website. Once you have downloaded the software, you can connect the camera and register it with the software so its functions can be used. "PlayMemories Home" is compatible with Windows XP (SP3), Windows Vista (SP2), and Windows 7 (SP1). For Macs, you can import images from the camera and play them with appropriate supplied software.
