    I was tossing around the idea of getting a new GoPro or this Sony...I made the right choice. The video and image quality is outstanding, but where this action-cam really shines is the image stabilization. I am not the steadiest of hands and often get dizzy after watching my video captures. This camera makes everything smooth as butter! I no longer have to take dramamine when watching my stuff, haha ) @@@@@@@

    Used it on my helmet to follow my son down Whistler Bike Park. Video came out very clear and smooth. Easy to use. Get a 2nd battery. I shoot in 1080p 60fps and the difference between 4K is not worth the time for me to upload a much bigger file.

    Bought this as a gift for my brother, after reading and watching comparison's with the Go Pro and HG Tracker I narrowed it down to this camera because of its features and functionality. The video quality was Spectacular!! He took a video of his ice fishing trip in Colorado and I was impressed, it was in a 1080p. Curious to see how clear the 4k looks. Great Camera and you will not be disappointed.

    Great video quality and the optical image stabilization is phenomenal. I'd recommend using other editing software than Sony's though...it's not as user friendly as some other programs out there

    Image is clear, stable, and smooth. Cheaper than the Gopro and comparing video is much better.

    Optical Stabilization is the Best!

    Let's face it, the form factor on this camera is a bit odd and the stark white makes it even worse by standing out like a sore thumb. If picture quality is your most important feature though then this camera rocks! I'm riding a stand up bike shooting video and holding the camera in my hand. The video is very smooth. If you're viewing the raw video, vs. the youtube version, it's like you're there. The camera is wide angle (adjustable to some extent) and from about 14" to 3-6 feet away it's sharp as a tack. As it gets further away it does lose a little bit of sharpness but as an action cam, especially wide angle, you'ren't going to see great detail anyway. I'm able to film selfie material and take landscape shots just fine even though I don't have a viewfinder. The camera is small enough to fit in my pocket and I'm finding it great to take on outings to capture some live action. I put in a fast 128Gb card and I'm shooting 1080p/60fps @ 50Mbps and the footage is stunning. Two things that are a bit of a turn off. First, there is no lens cap. Strange. Second is the menu system. It's workable and you don't have to be in it too much but I wish there were a couple of options that were slightly easier to get to. Another thing I like about it's that it has a little red light on the back and front when you're recording. It makes it easier to confirm you're in record mode. All in all, very happy with the camera.

    Why I bought Sony x3000 is the Sony's unique vivid video quality with great stabilizer technology. I tested it when I run also I did test under water. Really good keeping balance with inner stabilizer & recording under water is clear. Anyone who is interested with this, try this. Really awesome action camera. When I compare with the other action cameras I have, this will be the best action camera.

    This little action camera captures beautiful video and it has the best stabilization of any action camera. I have had 4 GoPro's but this is by far the best. Anyone thinking about purchasing a GoPro should look at the Sony FDR-X3000 first.

    i have owned go pro, and sony older 4k model, sony is not only better with stabilization but is easier for me and less editing to do after I record. plus, I see it as the brand who makes all types of 4k devices and has professional 4k cameras for movies . sony FYI, this new model from sony is smaller than last model from a year ago.

    almost no editing to be done, I never have to touch my videos, the quality is great, color pops, no shaking due to the built in stabilization. I picked the sony because I have a friend who uses professional sony 4k cameras in the movie industry, he says they have the best sensors in the cameras in the market, the way they process and handle the image. And this model has tons of features.

    Chose this over a Hero5 black and glad I did. Optical image stabilization is totally worth it. Recently took this to Hawaii, and shot a ton of footage on land and below water - worked great!
