wally19: now, with the new Firmwere the sony has 60 at 1080p and a new "water"
smorris227: yeah but i like the green on it
bonafidepirate: Yeah, the 60 and 120fps modes play back at 1/2 and 1/4 speed without sound.
You can speed them up during editing to get real time at a higher frame
rate, but still no sound. Personally I'd like to see at least the 60fps
option to playback in real time at 60fps and record sound. The 120fps could
stay as a "slow mo" feature, it's fun to play with. lol
Mauricio Andrade: the sony has 60fps?
RenoNuski: Steady Shot really seems to settle the motion nicely.
Ronart1000: the HDR-10 seems to have more "natural" colours... 1:48
protenek: Great work! Pretty helpful. Cant wait to see your Hero 2. Thanks.
Home Made Tv: save youre money go with sony !
bonafidepirate: In 60 and 120fps modes, the Sony doesn't record audio, and plays back and
1/2 and 1/4 speed of realtime, at 30fps. You can speed the video up again
in editing of you want realtime at higher frame rates, but still won't have
audio. :) I prefer the 60fps mode of the HeroHD and Hero2 that plays back
in real time by default, and has audio. The Sony is geared more towards
slow motion video in those modes though.
wanoman99: Wow Sony's really smooth
bonafidepirate: Correct! I figured some would want to see this comparison too since the
HeroHD is only $130 now. I'd still considered it for someone on a tight
budget or for risky shots where you don't want to risk any more than you
have to... lol My Hero 2 is due for delivery tomorrow, I'll do a similar
video with it asap, and maybe even all 3 side by side. ;)
justin gaetani: wow the steady shot looks really good
heliflyer7: Nice comparo, thanks!
GalaxyTraveler: Sorry, let me explain: I just had a GoPro HD Hero 1 so far, sold it this
summer and was comparing recent models like the Hero 2, JVC ADIXXION GC-XA1
or Sony HDR-AS10 / AS15 because I always wanted to have a remote control...
Sure the Sony will transfer the full quality files to your PC - but I just
saw the re-compressed YT videos so far, not any original unprocessed files.
The Sony does have almost no video delay on a smartphone, check out
watch?v=ErO_WSgKm2o for example.
GalaxyTraveler: I could not see any original video files from the Sony action cam so far -
just the stuff uploaded on YouTube (which is re-encoded with just 4 Mbit/s
or something), so I can't really compare the resolution / quality. But I'm
a bit disappointed that the Sony just offers 1920x1080 for photos as well.
I know it's primarily made for videos, but while skiing or climbing I would
like to capture some photos as well... However, WiFi video preview still
sucks on GoPro, approx 4-5 sec. delay...
Luke Tansell: People have to remember that this was done with a GoPro HD Hero, not HD
Hero 2; so the comparison is of an older camera, the current HD Hero 2 is
much better than the original Hero.
Chad Johnson: OK I watched that. The Sony does do nice fast WiFi! Thanks!
VerticallyUp: I looked at the footage before reading what was what.. Sony won..!
Nagy Péter: PLEASE HELP ME! How would be the sound by high speed(motorbike),on the SONY
cam? Good Medi or Bad? please Answer:)
Collin2377: All these videos, SONY has a better quality.
geoffist: its not going to be "amazing." its muffled heavily if youre using the case.
the best thing to do is turn on voice record or another recording app on
your smartphone and sync it later :)
h0tr0d31337: Good comparison video, thanks!
bonafidepirate: I agree, the GoPros are known the have a more yellowish hue in the video.
Sometimes the Sony oversaturates the blues though, neither is perfect.
Matt Miller: pickle Camp - Welcome to the Grocery Store
Mauricio Andrade: I just saw on the sony site is specification : HD Slow Motion Mode at 60 or
120 fps , it has 60fps, but only for slow motion?
Gregory Long: I like this review, very different from others. While I like the more
natural colors from the GoPro, it seems like something that could easily be
adjusted with some basic software. The stabilization from the Sony on the
other hand is pretty darn impressive. Very smooth flow.
Shawn Bierau: Just got the Sony HDR-AS10, flawless design, easy to use, I can tell this
is a winner. If you are going to be recording sky/water this really brings
out the BLUE (in a good way). The GoPro will bring out the GREEN in
pastures, etc. I'll be on my kayak, not in a pasture. Nice side by side
Chad Johnson: I don't understand. Cant you pull off the original file as an mp4 or
something like on the gopro, then transcode it to full quality to edit it
just as on the GoPro? And I know about the lame WiFi delay with the GoPro.
Does the Sony do better? Good enough to fly by? Still, I would never trust
FPV to WiFi.
oscar paz: sony gives you a true color. looks like the go pro is increasing contrast
during sun light. this is not good for the go pro since will do it at night
and the video will look darker. I think the sony has better results.
Chad Johnson: Yes the blue shift could totally be adjusted with a FW update. Let's hope.
What do you think about the resolution of the image vs the GoPro? I just
installed the new Gopro FW with ProTune and I love it. 35mbps!! I made some
comparison vids yesterday. ProTune is an option you can toggle, so you're
not committed to it. It's nice and flat - perfect for color grading in
post. 11 stops of dynamic range! But if you don't like to grade our footage
just stick with the standard color profile.
Chad Johnson: It seems the Sony is hyping the blues. The sky looks unnatural. I'd love
this camera to be a Hero2 killer, but so far I don't think so. The OIS is
Skymax: Sony handles the Backlight and dark Areas better.
bonafidepirate: Yes, AS10 has no WiFi, AS15 does, they're both sold as "Sony Action Cameras"
TheCaSkk: sisi pero... la gopro es la primera de todas, se tendria que ver con la
gopro hero 3, me gusta sony, pero aqui digo que son unos plagiadores
asquerosos de gopro
bonafidepirate: Very true! Send me your Hero2 so I can do a proper comparison. ;) Don't say
to send you my Sony, I asked first. :p J/K
notlimnaneek1: amazing how much difference steady shot makes
xFrozenPvP: Sony its much better !
Fernando García: sony,
KGTmcwood: Sony won. It's sony.
Thijs Cazemier: go pro... (:
rgthd007: Thanks for sharing. Thumbs up.
Bob Pilot: Does anyone know a good website to buy a cheap Sony HDR-AS10? :)
hoaryhoary: Sony....better color (except for blue), sharper picture with more detail
(Zeiss lens FTW), awesome "steady view". That decides it for me. You can't
beat what you get for the price.
Hayden Roberts: Sony blows out the greens and blues but all the other colours look
realistic. Why would they ruin the camera like this? I want all correct
colours please. GoPro (and the HD 2) is way too red on all tones.
bonafidepirate: There's no composite out, and I don't know if the HDMI does live output
while recording or not, I don't have the right cable for it. Either way,
I'd rather fly with a separate came anyway, they perform far better than
the live output from most cameras. You can get a nice CCD board camera for
a few bucks more than an HDMI/Composite adapter anyway, and it's smaller. I
do fly my quad using the GoPro's live output just to save weight, and
because I didn't have a spare camera at the time... ;)
Carl Clark: Sony clearly has the better stabilization. Thanks for helping me make this
cabster101: Also don't forget the Gopro 1 cost $129 and the Sony is $198.
