Sony has announced a selection of compatible accessories for the HDR-AS15 Action Cam, including a host of mounts to further expand the model's functionality.

The Sony Action Cam HDR-AS15 is a versatile camera with a specification suited to an active shooter. The camera offers full HD capture at a standard frame rate, as well as two special slow-motion shooting modes of 2x and 4x standard speed.

The HDR-AS15 supports control via a smart phone, offers wireless transfer through Wi-fi connectivity and offers a 170° field of view.

The all-action specification has been bolstered with the announcement of a selection of accessories for active shooting. These include a new ‘Wrist Mount Strap' for hands-free shooting, a ‘Surfboard Mount' to accompany the waterproof case and even a ‘Dog Harness' should you ever want to capture a pet's eye view of the world.

Also announced is the latest firmware update for the Action Cam. The update adds a Full HD 1080/60p shooting mode, an Underwater scene mode and beep confirmation of start and stop of video capture.

The Sony Action Cam HDR-AS15 is available from the Sony Store now at a price of £259; the selection of accessories will debut later this year, while the firmware update can be downloaded direct from Sony online.
