Anyone tried both? I just want something to film my kid while he's swimming. Always used my phone to do this, my I smashed the screen *shame*.
So quality-wise anything better than a Xperia Ultra is good enough for me :-)
I know the Sony Action cam's get a ton of use for recording paintball videos in my area. The video's I have seen are awesome quality. I think the exact model is Sony HDR-AS100. The transition from indoor to out lighting seems to be slow but I don't imagine that would be an issue with swimming.
