Sony Action Cam Mini HDR-AZ1 review

 

If you want an action camera that's simple to use and delivers great image quality, the Sony AZ1 is a no brainer.

If you want an action camera that’s simple to use and delivers great image quality, the AZ1 is a no brainer. It isn’t overly complicated, and it performs better than budget models. GoPro offers a cheaper Hero model that costs only $130, but the AZ1 has...

Sony Action Cam Mini review: Terrific performance in a tiny package

 

Consider Sony's Action Cam Mini HDR-AZ1 to be a streamlined version of the Action Cam HDR-AS100V, its top-of-the-line POV camera.

Recording at its highest bitrate requires a microSDXC card; changing settings requires a wireless connection to a mobile device or the remote; battery life can be brief; its curved lens isn't great for underwater use; Wi-Fi connection to the live-view...

A leaner, lighter version of its top POV camera, the Sony Action Cam Mini HDR-AZ1 puts big performance in a little package.

Great little camera

 

Been looking at the Sony cameras for a while, seen a good deal on the mini one(albeit without the remote) so bought it. It's so small and light, fits on the underside of my full face helmet so well. The video quality is superb and the play memories app...

GOOD CAMERA - POOR SOFTWARE

 

I bought this thinking it would be good for capturing tennis games with my family. The camera does well but I'm really disappointed with the poor quality app from Sony. Live streaming is almost impossible for some reason (the biggest reason for its...
