100 webcams without regestration
Note: Added Post below to reflect Firmware 2.0; Where instead of adding a simple USB driver so the camera could be seen as a video camera by a PC [and thus used by any camera/video software] they instead wasted countless man hours to make it a UStream exclusive with an overly complex setup that doesn't even work correcty. 1) This optical chip can support 4k and ~2.7k video with a firmware update. You can't even transfer files over Wi-Fi via a PC only on the awful mobile app. PC Drivers could solve both of these problems.4) Interval Photos are taken at a terrible TWO MEGAPIXEL instead of 13.5 mp which the regular photos are taken. Its taking photos SLOWER with Interval, not quicker.5) Go Pro's Hero line allows you to adjust settings like Spot Meter, White Balance, ISO, etc. This could easily be added with a firmware update if you bothered to support your product which now 6 months after release is still firmware 1.0; no surprise as my DSLR is six years old and still firmware 1.0 too with all the bugs it had at release unfixed.
Why does the camera not put photos in a top level folder called VIDEO.It takes a full 15 seconds to connect to the HDR-AS100V using a Nexus 7 2013 [Quad Core, 2 gb Ram).Once connected, it takes another 25 seconds to display video.Plenty of You Tube Videos show this issue vs the Go Pro Hero 3 Black.7) Why can't I turn off wide angle?I can force it off using image stabilization but I can't turn it off unless I use image stabilization.18) Play Memories Mobile CAN'T delete videos off this device, so if you want to delete videos you have to format the memory card deleting them all or delete them manually using a PC.
19) Play Memories Mobile CAN'T read (thus it can't copy over) files don't even show up in the list of videos on the camera when using the mobile software.
I bet you if you took a poll more people turn GPS On and OFF then they do change video formats on a normal use basis.14) Auto Off is 10 Seconds, 60 Seconds and that's it, no other option. Sony doesn't even bother updating its firmware, never mind the convenience doing it from the mobile app. 16) The GPS drains the battery really fast, as in 20 minutes sometimes less.
Go Pro has already updated the Hero 3 Black several times making it better each update. Why not add a Power Savings mode setting under GPS options that gives the user the choice to have the GPS poll less often to save battery?
There should be an option in settings, which can be added with a firmware update.
Recording is much clearer with IS OFF, but the wide angle looks terrible.8) Burst Photos? Again your video chip supports it but its not included in the firmware. Could be added via a firmware update but its another option Go Pro has over Sony.
Go Pro has this option and up to 10 photos in 1 second. Go Pro has this option.10) Simultaneous Video and Photo? Could be added via firmware but it wont because Sony hates supporting its products. 11) Looping Video, another standard feature on Go Pro's Hero Line, is useful when using the camera as a dashboard recorder.
