The new Action Cam Mini: Smaller and lighter
Our Action Cam Mini won't weigh you down. The slender, splashproof design is about two-thirds the size of our previous Action Cams - so there's less wind and water pressure when you're filming.
Relax, it's splashproof
The HDR-AZ1 easily shrugs off water, thanks to a splashproof design. With an IPX4-class rating, this Action Cam can stand up to showers, spray, and snow as soon as you remove it from the box.
Take full command of your Action Cam
Turn compatible smart phones and tablets in to remote control viewing devices via Wi-Fi with One Touch Near Field Communication (NFC). When using a single Live View Remote (RM-LVR2), you can frame your shot, change the shooting modes, turn on GPS, and control up to 5 Action Cams.
SteadyShot beats bumps and blur
Advanced SteadyShot image stabilisation compensates for various kinds of blur, especially the rapid vibrations caused by fast action like motocross or skiing.
Built-In stereo mic for quality sound recording
A built-in stereo microphone allows you to capture all the exciting sounds of your adventure
