Sony Action Cam is proud to partner Panos Pictures photographers for a motorcycle expedition across the Himalayas. Riding on their Royal Enfield motorcycles, the team explored the Valley of Ladakh, India, known to be one of the world’s highest motorable road.

“It was an incredible experience being able to handle a tiny camera that packed such a big punch. The Sony Action Cam was impressively durable and easy to operate. Documenting a motorcycling trip through the world’s highest motorable road while wearing protective gear is only possible with a sturdily-built camera and Sony has most definitely lived up to the challenge. Through torrential rain and snow, hail and sand storms, and adverse weather and altitude changes - the camera handled them perfectly.”
- Suzanne Lee, Project Videographer & Photographer for Panos Pictures
Follow each leg of the journey in our four-part video series:
“The Sony Action Cam sets a new benchmark for stability in POV cameras. For most of our trip, we were riding on bumpy, rocky terrain which would have made it challenging to capture sharp footage. With the advanced stabilising feature, it’s so much easier regardless of the terrain we were riding on.”
“The quality of the images blew us away. Throughout the course of the 14-day trip, the cameras had to endure adverse weather conditions such as torrential rain, snow, hail storms, sand storms, high altitudes and a scorching 47 degree Celsius temperature. Despite the tough conditions, the Sony Action Cam handled them perfectly.”
“We could connect and control up to five cameras at the same time and monitor each camera at a glance via the Live-view remote.”
“The attachment options were easy to use and performed well in holding the camera in place. The range of mounting options was ideal for our motorcycle adventure, which took us on all kinds of challenging terrain.”
“During our expedition, we had multiple road accidents where we crashed on the cameras. While their casings and lens protectors took the brunt of the falls, the cameras themselves came out without a scratch!”
