Last week, a series of firmware updates appeared for the Action Cam line up adding a variety of new functions including the ability to live stream video from the AS100V model cameras. Also included in the AS100V firmware is motion shot mode, burst shooting, and a self-timer.

Firmware updates also released for the AS30V giving the Sony Live View Remote (model RMT-VR1) the ability to control multiple AS30V cameras, improving the auto exposure and allowing Wi-Fi to operate without requiring a memory card to be installed. 

Here’s a formal summary of the firmware updates: Formal summary of firmware updates below:

  • Live Streaming Capabilities via Internet (AS100V only): The AS100V will have the ability to utilize U-Stream® for live steaming content via the internet. You can link your favorite social accounts with the streaming to notify your friends when you’re live streaming from camera.
  • Motion Shot Mode (AS100V only): The Motion Shot LE mode will be added to the AS100V to allow users to capture traces of a moving subject in one image so that it appears to be a continuous picture. Sample screen shots below:
