Sony's smallest splash-proof Action Cam
From the Manufacturer
POV HD Camcorder + Live View Remote
Grab every shot with the Action Cam that fits where others can’t. You’ll get super smooth video even on bumpy terrain with SteadyShot image stabilization, and control it all from the wrist-attached Live-View Remote. Want your friends to come along for the ride? Broadcast your video live via Ustream as you’re barrelling down the mountain.
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 Live View Remote RM-LVR2. Now you can frame your shot, change the shooting modes, turn on GPS, and control up to 5 Action Cams with the use of a single Live View Remote. RM-LVR2 is available via the HDR-AZ1VR Live View Remote Kit only.
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

Edit note: You need a very good battery charger to fully charge the HDR-az1's battery. It doesn't work with the average amazon or iphone battery charger. you need something more powerful (it works via USB with the bigger iPad charger for example).
I get about 110' of 1080/30 video without WIFI which is the lowest acceptable quality,
I get 85' in 1080/60 without WIFI.
I get 75 'in 1080/60 connected to Live-View Remote (RM-LVR2V) via Wifi (display with cam info, NOT live view)
I'll do some more testing with the wifi settings and am waiting for my SDXC memory card to check the battery duration in high-bitrate XAVC-S-format video (XAVC-S on the HDR-AZ1 doesn't work with normal SDHC card).
Sad that the battery lacks of upgradeability (like battery pack on the Gopro), because the camera and ease of use is absolutely remarkable. I use this camera for paragliding which means I can't swop between batteries when the first one is empty.
Buy one of these go pro "Go Pro Tripod Screw Adapter" for your Sony Action Camera, to get into all the amazing go pro tripod mounts clips holders....hours of shopping opportunities smile.
Update: so far I've bought many go pro items to work with this camera: tri pod adapter, fast mount plates, pivot arm, suction cup mount for the car...and you can buy A remote controlled drone helicopter for $50 to $300, for your aerial shots smile... a Velcro wrist camera mount...there are even steady cams available for under a hundred...
there was a really bad review about the wrist LCD controller, "live view remote" in the reviews on the Last model of this camera... for an extra $100 I'm glad I bought the "live view remote"....works... looks great Nice TOY.... smile
No problem setting up the camera with my Galaxy note 3 as a remote.... The Sony Play Memories software for getting video off of the camera to your computer via USB is OK, not great not bad, free download, you can do limited video editing with Play Memories... I use and do Like Sony Vegas video editing software a lot....
AND the Sony Action Camera is beautiful, usually I could care less if hardware looks good...this camera, it's beautiful...
if I find the time will update.... smile cheers
The quality of the camera is sustainable. Not "4k" or any of that. 1080 is great for me because it meets today's standards as well as not taking as much space as higher qualities. The case slightly blurs the camera, but no notifiable unless compared. The fish eye is wonderful, as it is very wide.
The camera is durable in and out of the protective case. The only fragile part is of course the lens. This insures the care free factor of an action camera. This thing is not going to break! Well. kind of, my battery live a short life, but easily replaced, and cheap.
EASE OF USE 5/5
Simply put a micro chip in, download the app, and start recording. I advise to buy extra batteries, as they are very cheap and useful. Especially if your first one breaks. I was able to get it running without any external help. Pretty Easy.
Compared to the competition, a go pro, this is a much more solid camera. The pricing is simply better than the go pro.
I thought it would be less conspicuous than my forehead mounted GoPro but it is not subtle at all. And the universal head mount is trouble for people like me who wear glasses. Fortunately, with the rec-mount I have this on my GoPro chesty and video is smooth.
Capture, however, is not as good as with my GoPro 3+ (even with xavcx codec). I still think it's good but not 5 stars. I capture 1080/60 with neutral and correct the color in iMovie; this is similar to the protune feature of my GoPro.
I would buy it again for the steady shot feature.
