San Diego, CA—At the CEA Line Shows in New York City, Sony announced it is developing a new type of high-definition, wearable video camera to answer the demand for premium point-of-view and action sports filming devices.
The new video camera will feature Sony’s SteadyShot image stabilization technology, which is found in its portfolio of digital imaging products, to reduce blur and deliver smooth footage. The video camera’s small, lightweight body will also house an Exmor R CMOS image sensor for enhanced low-light shooting and an ultra-wide-angle Carl Zeiss Tessar lens.
By combining this technology with more features on the way, Sony aims to deliver a versatile, easy-to-use video camera capable of capturing full HD quality video in extreme environments.
Sony plans to bring the new point-of-view video camera to market in fall 2012, and it also plans to offer a suite of mounting attachments, including waterproof and ruggedized housings. sony.com
