What a fine day it is. Sony has just sent us a preview of its new action camera that apparently has yet to be named. Sony was kind enough to give us a first look at the device. It’s actually a high-definition wearable video camera that is tiny and lightweight. Sony said that it will house Sony’s trademark SteadyShot image stabilization technology. In case you did not know, SteadyShot uses motion sensors to ensure that images will remain motionless as much as possible. Sony’s new “action camera” will also sport an Exmor R CMOS image sensor and an ultra-wide angle Carl Zeiss Tessar lens.
“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 there’ll be ruggedized and waterproof housings available so the camera can do its job in even the most extreme environments,” Sony said. Unfortunately, details about the camera are fairly limited, as it’s only a preview. However, the folks over at Sony promised that they will keep us updated. So, stay tuned as we bring you more updates.
