AZ1VR Action Cam Mini with Wi-Fi
A smaller, lighter design for ultimate portability
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 pressure when you’re filming. Recording’s easy, too: the Action Cam Mini can be operated with simple buttons on the side of the housing – even while wearing gloves.
Live-View Remote for easy, creative control
When you’re in the midst of the action, get the exact shot you’re after. Just strap the supplied Live-View Remote to your wrist and connect with Wi-Fi to remotely start/stop recording and access camera mode settings – you can control up to five Action Cams at once. You don’t have to worry about a bit of water either: the Live-View Remote works to depths of 3 metres and even uses GPS to track where you are.
SteadyShot beats bumps and blur
From the rockiest trail to the wildest surf – you want to shoot crisp, clear video your audience will actually enjoy watching. SteadyShot normalises the oscillation that the image has on the sensor – this means motion blur and noise levels are reduced, even in low light.
XAVC S for high bit rate recording
The high-bit-rate XAVC S format is provided for serious videographers. Enjoy Full HD image recording at 50Mbps for extremely high-quality expression and minimal noise. It also employs the Long GOP (Group of Pictures) data compression method to realize efficient movie recording.
Exmor™ R CMOS sensor with enhanced sensitivity
Mountain-biking downhill at breakneck speed at dusk? Kayaking at dawn? Your footage is still going to look great, thanks to the low-light sensitivity with improved image clarity and drastically reduced grain provided by Sony’s Exmor™ R CMOS sensor.
BIONZ™ X for superior detail and texture
Sony's image processing engine faithfully reproduces textures and details, as seen by the naked eye, via extra high-speed processing. Together with front-end LSI (large scale integration), that accelerates processing, BIONZ™ X enables more natural details, more realistic images, richer tonal gradations, and lower noise whether you're shooting photos or movies.
Sharp, ultra-wide 170° ZEISS Vario-Tessar® lens
Capture epic wide-angle views with the 170˚ ZEISS Vario-Tessar lens. Or switch to a more conventional 120˚ view when SteadyShot is turned on and enjoy greater shot stability – even when the action is fast. Either way, you'll always be capturing beautiful shots of the most challenging ski slopes, mountain trails, swirling rapids, or pitted asphalt paths.
Built-in stereo mic captures quality sound
Make a great movie better with great sound. The Action cam Mini’s built-in stereo microphone allows you to capture all the natural sounds of your adventure – from breaking waves while surfing to the rushing breeze as you race down a trail, and everything in between. You can even record lifelike sound through the supplied waterproof case.
120fps at HD resolution for super slo-mo video
Broaden your expressive options. When shooting movies in the APS-C (Super 35mm equivalent) crop mode, this camera supports high-frame-rate 120fps shooting at HD resolution (1280 x 720 pixels). Movies shot at this frame rate can be played back in 30p – the true cinematic frame rate – creating stunning 4x slow-motion effects that capture every movement in precise detail.
Splashproof design shrugs off water
If you’re preparing for a day in the mountains, leave the waterproof case behind – the splashproof design can handle the elements, thanks to its IPX4-class rating. This Action Cam will also attach straight to a tripod without the need for the case.
Waterproof case lets you dive right in

PlayMemories™ Home for pro functions and easy editing
Make your movies look even better with PlayMemories™ Home. Produce and edit videos quickly and easily thanks to a range of features such as GPS Data Overlay and super slo-mo video. You can also flip your videos clockwise or counter clockwise by 90˚ with Movie Rotation, or use Multi View to combine up to four movie footage segments – captured simultaneously by different cameras – and make a split-screen composite.
GPS Data Overlay tracks your adventures
Track your location and analyse your performance with greater accuracy. GPS Data Overlay calculates how fast you’re going and also generates another video file that displays your route, speed, and more – so you’ll know the importantdetails of your latest adventure.
Upside-down Flip Capture
Need to mount the Action Cam Mini upside down? No problem. The Action Cam Mini has a dedicated setting that accounts for upside down mounting and automatically flips the image the right way round. This means you’ll be able to mount it anywhere, at any angle, and still capture the same great, correctly orientated footage.
Motion Shot LE lets you see every trick and transition
Show off your biggest jumps and slickest tricks with this great creative feature. With Motion Shot LE, captured subject movement is displayed in a sequence of superimposed images on a single background, so you’ll see every transition with great clarity and outstanding detail.
Explore our range of optional accessories
Enhance your shooting with a range of optional accessories that help you get creative. Attach your Action Cam to a handlebar or head mount; you can even use the camcorder with a dog harness.
Wi-Fi gives you wireless freedom
Easily transfer movies and more from your Action Cam to your Android or iOS smartphone or tablet by simply connecting to Wi-Fi. Then quickly upload your videos to your favourite websites and social media networks so friends and family can see the action.
Capture fast-moving action with burst shooting. Simply activate this dedicated setting and you’ll be able to take a maximum of 10 high-quality shots at intervals of 1, 2 or 5 seconds. This allows you to capture every stage of a trick or transition, making it the perfect feature for those who love go back and analyse their style.
Tally light lets you know you’re recording
This Action Cam features a second tally light on top of the camera, in addition to the light on the unit. Now you can easily check the recording status from various angles.
Interval still shooting lets you get creative with videos
Capture subtle movement with detail and precision. Interval recording takes a still photo every 5, 10, 30 or 60 seconds, so they can be stitched together into a time-lapse video. This is especially useful for continuous recording over a prolonged period.
Record your way with dual memory formats
Store your memories the way you want. Record to your choice of either Memory Stick Micro™ (Mark 2) or Micro SD/SDHC (Class 4 or higher). Those wanting to capture footage in the high bit rate XAVC S format can also record directly to a SDXC card. With such flexibility, you’ll always be able to record in a way that best suits you and your adventures.
Still image mode for stunning photos
Capture the rush with crisp, detailed pictures. Still image mode shoots high-quality 11.9 megapixel photos, and a 170˚ wide angle lens shows your whole experience exactly as you see it.
USB charging/USB power supply keeps you powered
Always be ready for an epic journey – just charge your Action Cam from a laptop or PC via a USB port and you’re good to go. You can also operate and shoot your Action Cam while it charges, using the handy optional AC-UD10 AC adapter.
