    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 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 ) @@@@@@@

    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.

    Amazaing Amazing little action camera. Much better than a gopro, has built in optical image stabilization that creates a night and day difference in stability when compared to a gopro.

    This camera is awesome. I like it better than my GoPro Hero 4 Silver. The fish eye effect is minimal and the image stabilization is superior. Records in 4K. Mounting options are fewer but if you get creative you'll be fine. Make sure to use a lens cover or the supplied enclosure. No lens replacement available.

    I've tried them all, GoPro, Xiomi, etc. This Sony is great, the stabilization is amazing and the 4k is excellent. I use it all the time.

    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.

    Best camera of this kind for my money. Stabilization is really good and the footage looks great in 4K or HD at 120 FPS. Love mine.

    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!

    Optical image stabilization cannot be beat

    The biggest reason I purchased the X3000 over GoPro or Yi was due to true, optical, image stabilization. This allows for even 4K footage to be stabilized where the competition has to drop to a lower resolution and use inferior electronic stabilization. The reduced fisheye effect along with the great picture and sound make this a perfect little camera.

    Best action camera, period. Lens distortion is fixed from previous model, image stabilization is top notch. If video are not stable they are not enjoyable to watch.

    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.
