    Sony Action Cam Wearable Camcorder + GPSis rated2.0out of5by3.
    Rated2out of5byfromNot as good as you might expectWas excited to have a camera that could do it all, and was disappointed for the reasons listed. I chose not to return it because the packaging had been lost. Otherwise, I would have, and would have purchased the AS15, without the GPS or WIFI. I did a comparison of a section of a ride and the accuracy of the GPS was dismal, and the velocity shows it as well. A mathematical analysis showed how bad is bad (> 600 meters) during this section.

    Rated2out of5byfromNot as good as it claims to beI did research for days, looking at many options for a wearable/mountable camera. The size/form factor was great, had GPS, had software that interfaced with the unit and an app to do some "remote control" functions. Looked good! I did some quick shots to make sure I understood settings and the SW USB interface. The PlayMemories SW is poor to OK, depending on what you are looking for. Many things you might expect it to do (like removing files from the camera after download) it cannot do. Also, an error popped up that I needed to load Microsoft Office 2000 Premium CD into the system. I had that, and did that, but have no idea why. Something missing from the install process?? The worst thing was that there is no elevation data stored in the GPS record. That was definitely not disclosed (or referenced) in any article/ad/review. Don't users of these devices want/need elevation data? The image quality and image stablization are very good. The mounts are not shock-proof enough, so stabilization is important (I may have to helmet mount for real stability). Noise from the vehicle (bike/car/etc.) is easily picked up by the internal microphone if mounted to the vehicle. Like freewheel noises. Be aware that when you push the record button after the camera has been idle for a while, it takes a while to acquire the GPS. This can take anywhere from 1 to 20 seconds. You have to use the PlayMemories SW to pre-load the camera with GPS information (called GPS Support Tool) to make the acquisition process go even that quickly. Brand new, battery life is around an hour and a half to an hour and three quarters for mostly contiunuous shooting. 64 GB memory card is good for 8:43:00 recording time. I would have sprung for the cheaper camera had I known GPS elevation was missing, or would have gotten the GoPro Hero 3+ Silver.

    Rated2out of5byfromGPS function doesn't work with Win 8.1The camera is designed well. As opposed to REI's description: it does come with an excellent waterproof housing. Just not the SCUBA diving one. However, the GPS function on it is useless if you have a MAC or Windows 8.1 computer because you can't save the GPS data(speed etc.)(nor the Multi-View videos)on the videos in those operating systems . Their customer service is horrible. Most technicians can't help you or understand the problems. There is no estimated date for the Windows 8.1 fix. If you have Windows 7 or older then you will probably like this camera. If not then you may want to save your money and get the AS15 (not properly labeled on the REI site) for less money and no GPS.
