CES 2014: Sony's new Action Cam takes on GoPro

1:31 /

This tiny camcorder is water resistant, and adds tripod support.

Sony is looking to take on GoPro with the newest version of its action cam. Let's take a look at the new features. So, this is Sony's tiny camcorder. It's designed to be used in extreme conditions. It's water-resistant, so you'll be able to use it in the rain. But if you want to take it underwater, you'll need to snap on the protective casing. There are some new features for this revamped model. It's ever so slightly lighter. It weighs just over 3 ounces with the battery in. You can also shoot footage upside down. So, in the settings, you can invert the capture if you want to attach it to something by its underside. Also, it lasts as a power to put this thing on a tripod by an adapter that comes in the box. It records in NTSC and PAL. It's got Wi-Fi, NFC, and GPS. You can connect it to an Android or iOS device, and use that to remotely control video capture. It's gonna be coming out in March for $300. If you're willing to pay $400, you can get it bundled with Sony's LiveView Remote watch, as well. That watch lets you control up to five of these Sony devices wirelessly, and it works up to 30 feet. It's definitely a very cute little gadget. I'll be interested to see just how good the video that it produces really is. I'm Luke Westaway for CNET at CES 2014. Check out CES. CNET.com for more.
