    Amazing Image Stabilization

    I have had my FDR-X3000R about 3 weeks now to play with (the 4K version) and really love it for my two intended uses. There are a couple of minuses to bring up but in the scope of things this is a great POV action camera compared to my GoPro. In Use and the Pluses: I am using this for motorcycle riding and for snow skiing. The BOSS system really keeps the video image smooth, almost gimbal like when attached to a helmet, selfie stick or hand held. Super impressed to say the least. I am editing with iMovie and there is no issue with importing the video, everything is excellent. Now for the little minus to mention: In use the battery life is shorter than I would have expected. I am now trying to make sure and turn the camera off when not recording. It does boot up quickly so it really isn't a big deal. I also have two spare batteries now, Best Buy always has them in stock. Occasionally the camera loses it's connection with the remote and that is of course frustrating to wait for it to "handshake" and start talking to each other again. Finally, and this isn't about the camera specifically, but about the Sony action cam accessories. I have found it is super difficult to find mounts and accessories in stock. I have to hunt around the web and a bunch of vendors to get mounts that I want. Sony really needs to do a better job of their distribution of mounts if they are going to have success with this camera line.

    I used this on my recent trip and was amazed by the video. I mounted it to the handlebars of the motorbikes I was renting all throughout SE Asia, and got some great 4k video. This is one of my most favorite Best Buy purchases. I have posted a few videos on You Tube from this camera and am looking forward to posting more. There are many accessories out there for this that can be bought 3rd party. I got the handlebar mount in Phuket for about 20 USD, and it has held up very well. I would also recommend getting a second battery and charger, which can be found on Amazon for about $50.00.

    Best Action Cam for money

    As an owner of multiple action cameras, including GoPro, this is by far the best one I’ve used. The stabilization is insanely smooth. The picture is high quality as you’d expect with a 4K camera from Sony. My only dislike is the design of the battery door. Seems flimsy and very possible to eventually break. Other than that, this is a great buy.

    I compared the GoPro5 with the Sony X3000, hands down what made my decision was the video stabilizer and included case. I purchase this for SCUBA diving and other activities after my instructor purchased and I was able to view the amazing video quality. Great purchase.

    The remote connects to the camera less than half the time. Extremely frustrating! When it is connected, it's virtually impossible to see the screen in daylight. Worthless!!!!!

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend
