      The underwater case lets you start/stop the camera under water... unlike the other guys.

      You can also use PlayMemories Mobile App (free). Can control all of your camera's needs; including starting, stooping, ISO, flipping image...

    The previous model of this camera would not allow me to use it while it was being charged. Has Sony fixed this issue with the X3000?   (2 Answers)

      Hi mcmc08, The Sony FDRX3000 can't be used while charging. It should be turned off as the charging stops when you turn on the camera while charging. -Jerome

          Hi there! You cannot see what you are shooting using the Action Cam alone. The Live-View Remote allows you to see what you are shooting. However, this is not waterproof. Check here for more details: http://helpguide.sony.net/cam/1640/v1/en/contents/TP0001109421.html. Regards, Vincent

            No it does not. The FDR-X3000R has a live view remote which can be used as a monitor and also control the camera.

          Does this Camera come with a charger? If it doesn't which kind do I get?   (5 Answers)

            It comes with a micro USB cable that will charge it but I would buy a couple of extra batteries that usually come with a charger to make sure you always have a battery.

          would this be a good camera for sporting events, baseball and basketball?   (3 Answers)

            Answer

            The slow-motion is nice for baseball. With only an hour of filming time in 4k, it wouldn't be a good choice for long term videos. Plus the wide-angle lens would put you too far away from the action.

        • Question
          My question is, would this be a good cam for taking videos of fireworks or is there something else out there that would be better for about the same price or less even? Also looking at Model: HDRAS50/B SKU: 4847701 so I don't absolutely need 4k res.   (1 Answer)

            In a normal camera, you would want a slower shutter speed to make the fireworks "blur" with movement. Though this camera would take video, it wouldn't give you that "wow" factor in still photo's.
