Photography Skillset

Keeping it simple - For someone who is not too bothered about technicalities, this Sony device works!

Video skill level

Simple clips - As a videography noob, this Sony HDR-AS50 video camera should be sufficient for your needs.

When you've got deep theoretical and practical knowledge about what makes a great video clip, there's a minimum level - and camera - you'll need to operate with. This camera from Sony with its array of settings works really well for those who are meticulous about what they produce each time they shout action!

With the Sony HDR-AS50, you'll have a great companion for your craft. This model comes with a comprehensive set of controls allowing you deliver excellent results for clients and customers.

Video Scenarios

Streaming video live is a great way to share your experiences and this camera from Sony provides a couple of connectivity options to help you with this.

Recording every moment of the day's events is precious and this device certainly delivers. While the camera is rolling it has a handy Image stabilization feature built-in.

Its always great to capture moments of delight at home or while spending time with family and friends on an outing. For this, the Sony HDR-AS50 is a great companion to have.

For the YouTubers - This is a good choice for your video recordings because in addition to it's excellent Image Sensor Size (5.760 x 4.290 mm mm), it comes with an in-built image stablizer that ensures your shots remain steady.

Rough and Tumble - It's rugged and built for the outdoors. As such you won't have to worry about getting splash of water on it nor if it gets the odd bump now and then.

Other Video needs

Slow motion recordings add an extra dimension of fun and entertainment. This camera comes with an in-built setting that enables this mode.

Breathtaking transitions such as rolling clouds or city lights can captured as a time-lapse using the Sony's in-built intervalometer

Low light recording can be tricky, however this camera has got what it takes to help you through that. This is because its minimum aperture number combined with it's maximum ISO sensitivity can produce crispy images with minimal noise.

If you're looking for that silky-smooth rendering of your videos, this camera has got it as its able to handle 60 FPS at 1080p resolutions.

As you go about your business each day, there are moments or situations that come up that you'll want to capture on camera. The Sony HDR-AS50 makes for a great partner for taking those everyday shots, whether planned or spontaneous. 

Actions shots are for more engaging than people posing for a photograph at events. The Sony HDR-AS50 comes with Auto Focus Tracking which helps ensure people in motion still look sharp in your photos.

Other considerations

During wet weather, not all cameras can cope with the odd splash or two. Fortunately, this device from Sony is sufficiently resistant to water to protect it from rain and drizzles.

Sometimes carrying cables about just so you can move your photos across the devices can be a pain. Good thing this particular model comes with Wi-Fi.

While out and about taking photos or recording video, you may encounter quite a bit of dust. This could come from various sources such as a construction site or just the natural environment in your location. Being certified as dust-proof, the HDR-AS50 is a great companion to have in these situations.

Style

Fed up with the black and grey devices that dominate the laptop market? The bold colours and exciting design of the HDR-AS50 offer a very funky alternative.

When you're more concerned about what your camera does than how it looks, the HDR-AS50 is a safe bet.
