The Sony HDR-AS30 Action Camera Wearable Kit

The Sony HDR-AS30V Action Camera Wearable Kit lets you take your video camera wherever you go.

Shoot your next adventure hands-free

The Sony HDR-AS30V video camera is rugged enough to go anywhere, including skydiving, skiing or scuba diving. Of course, you'll want to have your hands free in those situations, and the Action Cam Wearable Kit makes that possible. Wrist and head straps combined with a variety of mounts let you use your imagination to decide what the camera's point of view will be.

Shoot anywhere, in any weather

The kit includes Sony's weatherproof housing, which protects the camera against sudden rainstorms or puddle splashes — it's the same case divers use when they take the camera deep underwater.

Tag with GPS, share via Wi-Fi

If you're planning a 5K run or a weekend on the slopes, the GPS built into the HDR-AS30V will be your best friend. It will keep track of your route, speed and other telemetry data so you can tag the best parts and revisit them any time you like. Better yet, you can use Wi-Fi to share with friends while you're still out and about.

    Product Research


    Overview: The Sony HDR-AS30V 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 12MP still images. The AS30V also has built-in Wi-Fi so you can share your videos wirelessly to your smartphone or tablet or control it remotely. This HDR-AS30VW "Wearable Mount" package includes the BLT-UMH1 Universal Head Mount Kit and the AKA-WM1 Wrist Mount Strap.

    Image Sensor: The AS30V is equipped with a 1/2.3" Exmor R CMOS image sensor with 16.8-million gross pixels and 11.9-million effective pixels for movies and photos, and 2-million for interval photo recording.

    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.

    Recording Media: You can record HD video and Still Images onto Memory Stick Micro (Mark2), microSD, microSDHC, or microSDXC memory cards. An 8GB memory card can hold approximately 35 minutes of video at the highest resolution or about 1350 12MP still images.

    Note: Class 4 or higher microSD cards are recommended.

    Built-in Wi-Fi: The AS30V 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 (4.3 or later) and Android (4.3 or later). Some Android devices (4.0 or later) can be connected via One-touch Functions via NFC. The Smart Remote Control function allows you to start/stop recording, change shooting mode, and change the SteadyShot and Field Angle settings.

    Note: The camera's Airplane Mode lets you disable all functions related to the wireless applications.

    GPS: The AS30V is equipped with a GPS receiver that will record the location information and movement speed while recording movies. The PlayMemories Home software (downloadable from the internet to your PC) allows you to import movies with the GPS log to a computer and view them with a map showing the location information.

    Video Recording: The HDR-AS30V can record Full HD AVCHD video (MPEG-4 AVC/H.264) with AAC audio. You can choose from six recording resolution options:

    Display Recorded Image Resolution Frame Rate
    PS Highest resolution/smooth image recorded at 2x frame rate 1920 x 1080 60p
    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
    Note: The video system can be to NTSC or PAL, depending upon the TV system of the country where you use the camera. Some functions are not available with the PAL system.

    Still Image Recording: The AS30V can record 12MP JPEG still images with a resolution of 4608 x 2592 (16:9). You can also take a series of 2MP (1920 x 1080) still photos 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 is reduced to 120°. SteadyShot is not effective in Super Slow Motion recording mode.

    Underwater Scene Mode: When preparing to shoot underwater using the supplied SPK-AS2 waterproof case, you can activate a special scene mode for underwater shooting. In all other cases, the Normal scene mode should be used.

    Viewing Images: The HDR-AS30V 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 AS30V comes with the NP-BX1 Lithium-Ion rechargeable battery. 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
    Image Quality HQ VGA HQ VGA HQ VGA Computer AC-UD20
    NP-BX1 (supplied) 140 175 80 110 205 210 245 175
    Note: The recording and playback time will be shorter when the Smart Remote Control function is on.

    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-AS30V has the following supplied and optional accessories:

    • Waterproof Case (SPK-AS2): This supplied clear plastic waterproof case allows you to shoot movies in the rain or at the beach. It has a locking case cover with an O-ring seal to maintain its water resistance. Once the AS30V is inserted into the case, you can only operate the Start/Stop button and the PREV and NEXT buttons. To prevent accidental operation, the case has a sliding Hold lever around the Start/Stop button. The case has a standard 1/4"-20 tripod thread on the bottom so you can mount it on the supplied attachment buckle or a tripod.
    • Attachment Buckle/Adhesive Mounts (VCT-AM1): The supplied Attachment Buckle mounts to the Waterproof Case via the 1/4"-20 tripod thread. The Attachment Buckle slides and locks into either of the supplied Adhesive Mounts. The camera comes with a flat Adhesive Mount and a curved Adhesive Mount for applying to different shaped surfaces.
    • Universal Head Mount Kit (BLT-UHM1): The Universal Head Mount Kit, included with this "Wearable Mount" kit, features a 1-1/2" wide headband and a 3/4" wide strap mount to allow you to wear the camera on your head or strap it to a helmet or goggles. It also includes four self-adhesive strap anchors for use with a solid helmet.
    • Wrist Mount Strap (AKA-WM1): The "Wearable Mount" kit also includes a Wrist Mount strap that allows you to film yourself in most any conditions, including water and snow (using the waterproof case). The camera straps to your wrist, and you can rotate it 360° for the best angles.
    • Handlebar Mount (VCT-HM1): The optional Handlebar Mount is used for attaching the Waterproof Case on the handlebar of a bicycle. The mounting plate is adjustable so you can set the camera at the angle you desire.
    • Waterproof Head Mount (VCT-GM1): The optional Waterproof Head Mount kit allows you to attach the Waterproof Case to a strap or headband. The kit consists of a Goggle Mount and a Headband. You can also use your own headband, but it must be 1.5" or narrower in width.
    • Headband Mount (BLT-HB1): The optional Headband Mount lets you wear the camera on your head for an eye-level perspective. The Headband Mount cannot be used with the Waterproof Case, so you cannot use it in wet conditions.

    Computer Compatibility: The HDR-AS30V 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 Vista (SP2), Windows 7 (SP1), and Windows 8/8.1, as well as Mac OS X v10.6 - v10.8.
