Sony HDR-AZ1 vs GoPro Hero4 BLACK HD

by on June 9, 2015

Side by Side Comparison of Sony HDR-AZ1 vs GoPro Hero4 BLACK HD

Sony Light Weight Camera 61 grams with battery.

GoPro Hero4 Black 90 grams with battery.

The missing ports from the AS100 are the External Mic and HDMI out.

Micro SD Cards

SanDisk Extreme Plus 64GB MicroSDXC UHS-I Memory Card Speed Up To 80MB/s With Adapter- SDSDQX-064G-U46A

Make sure is says U1 at the top when you order it and NOT U3. U3 reads at a fast speed but writes at a slow speed. 30MBs

My speed test with the U1 was 91MBs Read and 53MBs write.

(I make no money off the clicking of this link)
(Amazon swapped card with a newer model that writes at lower speed. Looking for new link but card below works great for Sony)

If you can’t find that card or Amazon keeps mailing out the wrong one, you can get this one at any local Best Buy.

SanDisk Pixtor 32 GB microSDHC UHS-1 Card with Adapter…

For GoPro Hero4 Series I recommend going with the Lexar High-Performance MicroSDXC 633x 64GB…

MPK-AS3 Flat Lens. For some reason it’s near impossible to stumble on this on the Sony Store without the correct product name. Here is a direct link.…
