I'd like to start with bestbuy reviews, it seems like so many first-time action cam buyers here, so it was my mistake to believe all reviews from best buy. Check other reviews.
The design of this action cam is absolutely amazing, no comments, easy to hold, mount and operate, the feature set on this cam is super awesome, easy to use and understand.
The video quality is absolutely amazing 2160 30p 100m when you focus on the object and don't move, that's how you get maximum performance, especially on sunny day. When you use a 30p on 60m with picture stabilizer feature on - you get a pretty impressive video quality ONLY on a beautiful sunny day, the video quality suck when it's get darker. I'm very disappointed with this purchase, I couldn't decide what to buy for about 2 weeks, GoPro or Sony X3000. I have watched so many video reviews on youtube, that's why I decided to buy Sony X3000, after using this camera for 1 week. I understood that you can't trust anyone, so many fake and professional video reviews you can find on youtube, feels like sponsored by Sony.
I decided to give a 1 star review for this camera because I was fooled by fake reviews until I purchased this product and experienced on my own.
The battery life is terrible, very disappointing, I wanted to cry when I took this camera to Hawaii and used approximately 20-25 minutes (with power on and video recording combined), so I had to charge, charging time is terrible and you can't really charge with other power banks exempt Sony power banks, they recommend to use power banks only by Sony for better experience. Also, you can not charge during video recording, i wanted to pull hair from my head. I'm going to return this camera because I bought a GoPro 6 and it's absolutely amazing product! The video quality at night is absolutely outstanding.
You may use Sony X3000 to record your activities on a beautiful sunny day ONLY, when it's get darker - the video quality is bad.
I would not recommend this product to a friend because of my personal experience, but you may buy this product and decide to keep it or return. I'm going to return this action cam tomorrow!
