Background and Identification ¶ 

The Sony HDR-AS15 was released on August 29, 2012. It is a rugged camcorder aimed at users who record in situations where other cameras would fall short. Users would be able to use it for skydiving, scuba diving, racing, bikes, surfboards, and a number of other activities. It has Wi-Fi connectivity, unlike the Sony HDR AS10, and has several recording options/settings. The product comes with shockproof and waterproof housing and two adhesive mounts: one flat and one curved. The housing is waterproof down to 197 feet and has dirt and dust-resistant seals. The camcorder measures 2 inches by 2.6 inches by 0.9 inch and only weighs about 3.2 ounces with its NP-BX1 battery pack. There are five MP4 recording options (resolution/ frames per second): 1080p/30, 720p/120, 720p/60, 720p/30, and 480p/30. The camera has digital image stabilization and can also do time-lapse photography. No options are available to take a single photo or a burst of photos. The model number of Sony point-of-view (POV) cameras is located to the left of the display.
