    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.

    After reading many reviews and watching video quality and features I decided to purchase this Sony action camera. Best decision ever!! Great quality and easy to use once you get past the first couple test shots.

    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.

    I am super impressed with the image stabilization on this device. Colors and clarity are fantastic but stabilization is the clear best feature. Could not be happy with this product vs go pro. Very stable and easy to use interface.

    I recommend this over any of the GoPros. Especially for extreme sports like snowboarding. Much easier to handle on the slopes. 4K is beautiful and the image stabilization is far superior to the GoPro Hero 7 Black.

    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.

    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.
