    The picture is amazing. The battery life is good. I only had one problem so far. I was shooting in 4K without the case and streaming to my iPhone. I was 17 min into recording and it turned off due to a heat warning. The battery was almost dead after 17 minutes. I reset the camera and reformatted the card. Ran it again after charging the battery and did not stream to my phone this time. Battery still got very hot at 130F degrees but did record for 1hr and 7 min before the battery ran out.

    I've been using this cam for my hd fpv truck. hdmi output latency is similar levels of a gopro. The optical stabilization really makes this camera stick out from the pack. One thing to note is that you should look online for compatible uc1 3 speed micro sdcards because this camera can be finicky with recording at 100mb/sec bandwidth. There's only a hand full of cards that work at that level.

    60 min battery life in 4k, lowering bit rate from 100 to 50 helps out with over heating (4k), image stabilization trumps GoPro!!! Get the $30 shield for the lens, because you don't need the underwater case unless you plan on get'n wet or dirty. It's the BEST value on the market, if you want to shoot 4k... and trust me, you want to shoot in 4k.

    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 had a GoPro, but read that this camera was better for scuba diving. I'm not sold on whether this camera is better than GoPro, but it is a good camera. I would say all in all, they are about the same with this camera being able to go deeper underwater.

    Great camara for filming underwater and taking pictures, however the sound is something that Sony could improve on, with no wind noice reduction, it could also use and external screen to see what you filmed.

    Some features are incredible such as the mechanical image stabillization. Battery life is not so good. Overall, good product. Would recommend for certain things such as off-road or car videos.

    Great camera, but after time the glue on the lens falls off and your image becomes distorted.

    Basically, if you own a GoPro 5, don't buy it. The video quality is almost as good. The best advantage of the Sony is definitely the different shape.

    It seems like a great camera, but I returned it. I preferred a camera with a screen to what was recording
