Capture footage across untold settings with Sony's waterproof device

In a world replete with action sports and video production, a new handheld toy has launched to help amateur filmmakers bring professional-grade short docs to life. The Action Cam—a tiny, waterproof device by Sony—will compete with the likes of GoPro as a high-quality video camera for daredevils and photo enthusiasts alike.

For maximum shooting quality on and off land, the 4K cam comes equipped with a f/2.8 Zeiss Tessar lens, a stereo mic sensitive to audio, an LED screen and your standard ‘record’ button. You’ll also find all of the basic functions of a video camera, such as a battery, SD card slot and a USB port to sync up to your computer. The camera and water-resistant case have built-in mounts and image stabilization, so you can shoot in high-quality at regular speeds or in slow-motion.
