This Sony outdoor camera will surprise you with its excellent performance even in low light conditions. The Exmor R CMOS sensor is designed for Sony’s top tech and significantly raises clarity and lowers noise in poor lighting. Combined with faster parallel signal processing and transfer, the HDR-AS20 provides richer gradations and wider dynamic range. All this results in stunningly accurate details and wonderfully clean image.
A ZEISS Vario Tessar 170° wide-angle lens ensures breathtaking shots, though you can also switch to the more common 120° angle if you wish. Thanks to the advanced multi-layer coating, the lens provides intense contrast and sharp image without glare and reflections. Last but not least, having perfect sound is a must for a good video recording. A built-in stereo microphone captures all the sound in clear and natural quality.
Whatever you do, you will never miss to capture a fun or important event. Thanks to the supplied battery, which will last for up to 150 minutes of use, you will be able to record everything you need. The slim design is resistant against harsh weather and water pressure, making it an ideal camera for outdoor adrenaline sports. Its slim profile guarantees the camera will never get off the axis, as is often the case with other competing brands. Its buttons are also extremely easy to operate, even when wearing gloves.
A good camera needs good connectivity and the HDR-AS20 definitely delivers. Share your experiences on the big screen TV via HDMI, or use standard USB interface or Wi-Fi for remote control, which lets you transform your smartphone or tablet into a remote.
SteadyShot image stabilisation guarantees rock-solid captures without shaking and vibrations. Sensors detect shaking hands and other movements and SteadyShot compensates by using a dedicated buffer area.
The Underwater mode is designed for capturing beautiful and natural colour images even under water. The white colour tone balance prevents green distortion and the water retains its gorgeous blue tones just like in reality. Recordings can be stored on a microSD memory card or Memory Stick Micro. Videos are recorded in Full HD and 60/50p at 28 Mb/s. The upside-down flip feature is particularly useful when shooting from an inverted position.
Included is a tough waterproof case with a tripod mount, which is waterproof down to 5 meters and can withstand up to 2.5 meter drops. Additionally, it is also dust- and dirt-resistant and nearly impervious to mud, snow, rain, and sand.

Though it occasionally struggled during periods of financial crisis and recession, the company always persisted, and today is one of the most prestigious brands worldwide, known for their innovative products in electronics, video games, and the entertainment industry.
