PREVIEW: IFA 2014 – Sony HDR-AZ1VR Action Cam Mini
IFA 2014 – 63g splash-proof Full HD camcorder with a wrist-mounted controller
Live from IFA 2014 trade show, Berlin, Germany
Camcorder are getting scary-small. The palm-sized AZ1VR takes pictures at 11.9 megapixel quality with its Zeiss Tessar lens and films in Full HD. It can be both mounted on a jacket, backpack or bike helmet ( several clip mount kits are available) and controlled from a RM-LVR2V Live View Remote wrist device.
It weighs almost nothing and, in the hand, feels sturdy but so, so small – this is a truly pocketable device.
Interestingly it also includes a live-streaming mode that broadcasts footage via Ustream; you’d better make your next trip the most exciting yet.
