While the wearable HD video camera market already has many strong contenders Sony looks to enter the area with a camcorder that will reportedly feature Sony’s SteadyShot image stabilization technology.
This could make those user created action videos on YouTube a little easier to watch. The new “action camera” will also sport an Exmore R CMOS image sensor and ultra-wide angle Carl Zeiss Tessar lens, which could further help create very good look video.
“That means, whether you’re shredding major powder, jumping out of a plane, or kayaking through an epic waterfall, you’re capturing super high-quality video of it to show off to your family and friends. And these will be “ruggedized” and waterproof housings available so the camera can do its job in even the most extreme environments,” Sony said in a post on its blog.
