Sony HDR-AS200VB Action Camera with Live View Remote Wrist Strap and Bike Kit (with Roll Bar and Helmet Mount) £195 @ Amazon

Found 20th Feb 2016
Having been looking at the current Vodafone Sony AZ1 camera offer (at £100) and doing some research I found this deal through Amazon that when you consider everything seems a much better deal than the AZ1. I realise this deal cost more but you are getting much more for your money.

For starters this pack comes with the Live remote (normally over £100 alone), I wanted to be able to overlay GPS data which you can't done without the live remote as I understand it.. Plus it includes extra mounts, in my case the adjustable helmet mount is going to essential for motorcycle riding.

Reading reviews the AZ1 seems to be well liked for it's size but the video quality isn't the best. The AS200 is larger but goes some way to improving the video quality although from what I can see it's not quite up to the standard of the Go Pro Hero Black and the menu system is a bit confusing. It's horses for courses though with these things they generally excel in one area and are not so good in others.

Anyway after a few days of researching I have cancelled my AZ1 order with Vodafone (who still haven't dispatched it yet) and will get the Amazon AS200 tomorrow with a free trial of Amazon Prime next day delivery.

The review comments on Amazon are generally very good and there are plenty of comparison video's on Youtube..

I'd hazard a guess they are not OOS but they are waiting for the Vodafone deal to end... be interesting to see how that works out although looking at the AZ1 thread quite a few people did also get emails saying the items were different.

I have received an email from John Lewis about credited my card with difference and some comments below

"Please be aware we are no longer matching this offer for any future purchases as it has come to light that the Vodafone stock does not have a Live View remote included and the John Lewis stock does.We have honoured our previous decision in this instance"

You did well. I can't even get them to match a TV because the comparator doesn't delivery to higher than first floor premises.

That was lucky. How did the Vodafone order come with the remote? Did you pay more than £100 for it.

JL rejected my price match. Probably just a little late

JL has price matched before someone posted this deal from vodafone. I have noticed earlier vodafone price. I didn't know about live view remote at all. Didn't know set from JL has remote included. They price matched £100 and delivered . Paid £559.90 for two and today JL refunded £359.90 to my card. So £200 for two cam with live view remote.
