Sony Action Cam Mini lighter than earlier models, connects to Ustream

Sony's latest camera designed for sports and action videography has been launched, claimed to be the company's smallest version yet. The splash-proof Action Cam Mini weighs just 63 grams (2.2 ounces) and is two thirds the size of earlier models, with Sony also introducing the ability to stream video live via Ustream and other services at the same time as recording footage to a memory card.

Using an 11.9-megapixel 1/2.3-inch BSI Exmor R CMOS sensor with the Bionz X image processor, the Action Cam Mini can record footage at 1080p at 24, 25, 30, 50, and 60fps in XAVC S format, with a high-speed 120fps mode available at a resolution of 1280x720. Equipped with a Zeiss Tessar F2.8 lens, it has a field of view of approximately 170 degrees, though enabling its SteadyShot facility for image stabilization brings the angle down to 120 degrees. It also has a stereo microphone, GPS, NFC pairing for its Wi-Fi connection, and is optionally supplied with a wrist-mounted Live-View Remote, capable of controlling up to five cameras.

The Sony Action Cam Mini will be going on sale from October 19th for $250, or $350 with the remote.
