“Sony Electronics has today announced its smallest POV camera to date, the Action Cam Mini, model HDR-AZ1. Approximately 30% smaller than its Action Cam siblings and weighing in at just over 2 oz, the new model packs a variety of leading POV imaging technologies including SteadyShot™ image stabilization, a ZEISS™ Tessar Lens and an Exmor R® CMOS sensor into an extremely portable body that is ready for any adventure.
The new HDR-AZ1 Action Cam Mini supports full HD video shooting in MP4 as well as the XAVC™ S codec, which records at high data rate of 50 mbps resulting in highly-detailed video content. It also offers 120 fps high frame rate recording for impressive slow-motion footage. The camera is splashproof (IPX4 equivalent) without any separate housing required, and comes supplied with a waterproof case certified at depths up to approximately 16 feet (5m).”
