The Bottom Line The Sony Action Cam is a solid first effort and worth its price, but some design shortcomings may be enough to put off some potential buyers. Typical for their price class, the no-frills Sony Handycam HDR-CX130, CX160, and XR160 produce generally subpar HD video, but if you're not picky you'll probably be fine. The CX130 is the best buy of the three, as long as you go cheap on the memory card. The Sony Action Cam is a solid first effort and worth its price, but some design shortcomings may be enough to put off some potential buyers. The Kodak Playsport is an excellent minicamcorder that can take some rough treatment and capture solid HD video.
