Sony FDR-X1000V review - 4K action camera

Verdict: Clearly aiming its sights at the GoPro Hero4 Black , Sony's FDR-X1000V is a tiny action cam that's capable of 4K recording. Just like the Hero4 Black, the FDR-X1000V can manage 4K (3,840x2,160) at up to 30fps.

Camera Review: Sony FDR-X1000V

Pros: Splash-proof without a housing; easy operation; image stabilization; GPS
Cons: Waterproof housing not rated for depths as low as the competition; colors can appear oversaturated; fewer resolution/frame rate options than the competition
Verdict: For those of us of a certain vintage, it's almost impossible to believe that Sony could be described as an underdog when it comes to video cameras. But in the world of professional action cameras, it's fallen to Sony to play David to GoPro's Goliath.

Sony 4K Action Cam Review (FDR-X1000V)

Verdict: Sony added its new Action Cam camera with 4K video recording to its Action Cam wearable camera lineup at CES 2015. The Sony FDR-X1000V 4K Action Cam has a similar form-factor as the previous Action Cam models and will cost $499 and $599 with the Sony Live View Remote, a utterly useful accessory when...

Sony FDR-X1000V 4K Action Cam: Australian Review

Verdict: I saw two movies this past weekend. One was about a terrifying futuristic dystopia filled with endless betrayal and a complete lack of hope. The other one was Mad Max: Fury Road There's plenty to dissect in Disney's new film Tomorrowland - from the misguided romanticisation of the 1960s as a...

Sony FDR-X1000V/W 4K Action Cam Review

 
3.0
Pros: 4K (UHD) video recording, Good-looking, smooth videos, High 100-Mbps bitrate, SteadyShot stabilization
Cons: Larger than most action cams, 4K requires SDXC card, Some quality issues in bright light, Pricey compared to competition
Verdict: Sony's 4K Action Cam is a capable POV camcorder that shoots great videos, but its size and price put it behind GoPro's Hero4 Black.

3.8
Verdict: At the end of the day, in the action cam market, the buck stops at GoPro. Whether a company is trying to compete with them or not, they are the standard that everyone is held to.

Excellent Camera, Poor Waterproof Case Lens

 
1.0
Verdict: I've had this camera for over a year as an upgrade to my Go Pro and it's definitely an improvement, however the one major thing which lets it down is the waterproof concave lens which allows water droplets to hang when using after use underwater.

Great Features

 
5.0
Verdict: Action cam is just great. However was a big task find a compatiable memory card for it. Sadly 4K videos cannot sync with my phone have to manually download it to my computer to view.

Good upgrade from GoPro

 
4.0
Verdict: I have only used this camera on one shoot. So far, I love it. Much better image quality than the GoPro. I am used to Sony menus, so this menu was easy to navigate. I like the wearable Live Remote - it will come in handy when I mount the camera in a ceiling or similar place.

Fantastic image quality but fiddly

 
4.0
Verdict: I use this camera professionally on numerous classic and exotic cars and it was chosen over the GoPro due to the image quality. At 4k however you do get an awful fish-eye effect which needs tweaking in post production.

Pros: - sleek design - stereo audio with noise reduction - image stabilization is smooth - great optics (1080p and 4K better quality than GoPro4 B - affordable price - flexible file formats (better than GoPro4 B - good battery life - great alternative if you HATE GoPro4 Black - love the play memories app...
Cons: - flimsy backdoor (its gonna break over time, opening and closing to access the charging port) - cheap and plastic construction - fish-eye 4K in 60Hz video (normal 1080p in 60Hz - high temperature sensitivity for an action cam (overheating fast when ambient temp increases) - device doesn't always...
Verdict: - get the correct memory card to run this camera for 4K - needs a cradle to turn into a handy-cam with display (SONY if you're listening) - it is harder to live with than the GoPro4 B (hard to explain why, but that's why you should get this, as its off the norm) - it is sleeker than the GoPro4 B,...
