Sony FDR-X3000R 4K Action Camera With Balanced Optical SteadyShot Review

 

Sony could definitely be called an expert when it comes to camera technology and this applies just as seriously to the company's steadyshot camcorders and other video cameras. The company has been making them for years and their first models came out...

Great video quality, especially in 4K ; Tough design ; Balanced Optical SteadyShot ; Live-View Remote ; Zeiss Lens technology ; Removable battery ; Splash resistant body

GoPro offers longer shooting time ; Weak still photos ; High frame rate video not the best ; A bit expensive

The Sony FDR-X3000R is a great 4K action camera and its two highlights in the form of the Balanced Optical SteadyShot system and Live-View Remote make it even more of a winner. This little action camera has a couple minor flaws but none of them detract...

Sony FDR-X3000R Action Cam

Sony FDR-X3000R review

 

Action camera with a remote live view display

Waterproof housing included ; B.O.SS image stabilization tech impresses ; Remote monitoring ; Useful 3x digital zoom for close-up shots ; Tripod thread ; Plenty of accessories

High price ; Live View Remote drop-outs common ; 3x zoom lacks autofocus ; Soft still images ; Short battery life

This tiny action cam’s nicely image stabilized 4K 30fps footage impresses, but an unreliable live view remote makes this variant of the cheaper FDR-X3000 of dubious value.

Sony FDR-X3000R review

  (Rating Hidden)

The mini FDR-X3000R action cam is packed with features to help you film high-quality video up in the air or under the sea. Sony says that this action cam serves up 'mesmerising' 4K video, but is that really the case? We sent the Sony FDR-X3000R action...

Review: Review: Sony FDR-X3000R 4K Action Camera with Live Remote Kit

 

I'm guessing that for many people, there's really only one brand of action camera. But of course the major consumer electronics companies have the

Very good video quality, extreme depths possible with supplied case, decent app, effective remote controller/screen

Nothing too obvious
