I've had the Sony AS20 and AS30 for a little over a year. Been wanting to do a Point Of View (POV) video on my commute to work.
The camera was mounted on my handlebar, taking a lot of vibration, hence the "shaky" chase videos.
Piece To Camera (PTC) shots was made with an AS30 mounted onto an AKA-LU1 Handycam adaptor that gave it that classic consumer video camera look.
The AS20 & 30 has a battery life of well over an hour. It's perfect for "start" and "stop" recording.

|Sony discontinued the AS30V that features GPS data logging and NFC controls for its range of Andriod OS smartphones|
|The palm-sized Handycam adaptor with a flip-screen, this was cheap and very helpful in Piece To Camera shots|

Post-production, well, over an hour's worth of footage was edited on Microsoft Movie Maker. It was very simple and straight-forward.
I chopped up the video down to 4minutes 39seconds and was pretty pleased with how it turned out. Well, for showing it to my friends. Not broadcast-quality.
As far as producing more cycling videos is concerned, I am just getting started!
