When AS200V is 720p 120fps and 800×480 pixels with 240 fps and 60 fps in full HD.

Sony claims that the new Action Cams feature an improved SteadyShot image stabilization. The stabilization is based on Electronic Image Stabilization and according to Sony is three times as effective as the previous generation. This would be would be ideal for capturing high-speed movement, but also Sony hint to the use of drones, because the stabilization would reduce vibrations effectively. The stabilization alone does not work in the 4k mode.

Both models are equipped with an ultra wide angle lens with a viewing angle of 170 °. Loop Recording feature puts continuous footage in the memory buffer, even before the start of a recording. There is a stereo microphone provided with wind noise reduction. Finally, you can stream live video over Wi-Fi and UStrean and reviewing the route traveled and speed thanks to the integrated GPS.
