The new splashproof and freezeproof Sony HDR-AZ1VR Action Cam Mini with Live View Remote Watch ($349) is designed for capturing POV footage of adventures of all kinds. The new cam features 1080p 60FPS recording in the lower compression XAVC S format at 50 Mbps and also offers a more compressed MP4 mode for extended recording times or to yield a file suitable for Web upload. In addition to video, it also takes 11.9-megapixel still photos with the option for single shot, burst shooting at up to 8 fps, and interval recording for creating time-lapse effects.
The camera itself is inherently water-resistant for use in the rain, snow, or situations where it might get splashed. For use in the water, it features the SPK-AZ1 waterproof housing which can be submerged safely as deep as 16′. Both the camera and the housing are adaptable to a wide range of mounting hardware. A universal 1/4″-20 tripod adapter and an adhesive mount are included and there are a number of separately available mounts that can be used with this camera and other members of the Action Cam line.
