Sony today announced that it is developing a new type of high definition wearable video camera which answers the demand for premium point-of-view and action sports filming devices. The new video camera will feature Sony’s hallmark SteadyShot image stabilization technology, found in its portfolio of digital imaging products, to reduce blur and deliver stunningly smooth footage. The video camera’s small, lightweight body will also house an Exmor R CMOS image sensor for excellent low light shooting and an ultra-wide angle Carl Zeiss Tessar lens.
Additionally, Sony will offer a suite of mounting attachments, including waterproof and ruggedized housings. 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.
