    See how Action Cam opens spectacular new vistas with mesmerising 4K high quality and steady action. Capture your best moves in unforgettable 4K movies.

    Totally new dimension in action movie shooting
    Action Cam combines brilliant 4K imagination with Balanced Optical SteadyShot advanced camera-shake compensation. By controlling the entire optical path as one floating unit, Balanced Optical SteadyShot is significantly more effective at cutting the effects of camera shake. This advanced stabilisation system makes it easier to shoot beautifully clear, stable images while travelling, bike riding, and in other active situations.

    Smart operation with friendly UI
    Selecting and changing features has never been easier thanks to the new, intuitive user interface. All menus are easily accessible. Enjoy a seamless camera setting experience and find the perfect setting for your shooting needs. Camera can also be turned on/off via smartphone with PlayMemories Mobile.

    BIONZ X™ for superior detail and texture
    Sony's image processing engine faithfully reproduces textures and details, as seen by the naked eye, via extra high-speed processing. Together with front-end LSI (large scale integration) that accelerates processing, BIONZ X™ enables more natural details, more realistic images, richer tonal gradations and lower noise whether you're shooting photos or movies.

    Exmor R™ CMOS sensor with enhanced sensitivity
    Mountain-biking downhill at breakneck speed at dusk? Kayaking at dawn? Your footage is still going to look great, thanks to the low-light sensitivity with improved image clarity and drastically reduced grain provided by Sony’s Exmor R™ CMOS sensor.

    Built-in stereo mic captures quality sound
    Make a great movie even better with great audio. Built-in stereo microphone allows you to capture sounds of your adventure in two-track stereo, naturally. Clear sound with reduced noise enhances the most sophisticated movie work you can produce.

    Sharp, ultra-wide ZEISS® Tessar™ lens
    Capture epic wide-angle views with the ZEISS® Tessar lens or choose standard but striking views. Either way, you'll always be capturing beautiful shots of the most challenging ski slopes, mountain trails, swirling rapids or pitted asphalt paths.

    Adjustable field of view and zoom freedom
    Discover new flexibility to vary your shooting in action for dramatic effects and added excitement. For example, your angle of view can be selected from “Wide”, “Medium” or “Narrow”. In addition, seamlessly adjustable zoom mode enables you to change zooming while shooting.

    4K Time-lapse Capture
    Time-lapse Capture lets you produce time-lapse movies easily by using high-quality 4K still images shot at designated intervals. Then Action Cam Movie Creator (v. 5.1 for Windows, v.3.1 for Mac®) or Action Cam App (v. 2.0) simply transforms these images into an impressive time-lapse movie.

    Underwater Housing as standard gear
    Take Action Cam diving to 60 m/197 ft using supplied Underwater Housing —no need to buy optional gear. Equipped with a flat panel, it lets you control all camera buttons easily through the housing. What's more, it shields this hardy compact camera from shocks, damp, rust, dust and sand. Enjoy carefree aquatic adventures and extend your exploration to tough terrain.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Remote for 3000 action camera Sony you have made an awesome camera. But the remote strap is a let down. Can you not make a better one ie a velcro strap. The one at the moment is very poor and hard to secure on your wrist. Also the waterproof case that's mate for the camera once it's in its case you can't see at the front if it's recording. I know you have other recording lights. But if mounted on a helmet when you turn camera on you can't see if it's recording when skydiving. Third point can you make another case for general use and with volume vents in it so when recording you can hear the footage on play back. Many thanks Sony.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Optical stablisation is a GEM!!! After deciding to upgrade from my GoPro Hero 3+ I have compared the Hero 5 and the Sony and settled on the Sony because of the optical stablisation. It is simply superb.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sony FDR-x3000 Great Product Would highly recommend to get your hands on this action cam! 10/10. After reviewing so many action cams on the market, the sony fdr-x3000 definitely won me over. Great for Vlogging since it has an OPTICAL stabiliser.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Performance Positives: This particular camera was purchased as the one most suited to my requirements and value for money. I have found it generally fulfills my expectations. Clear video. As it provides a lot of features, it took a while to get familiar with it but is easy to use afterwards. Minor Negatives: The GPS data does not include elevation data, thereby not providing elevation graphing. This could possibly be fixed with a future software upgrade. I found the downloadable editing software a little tedious until I got used to using it. Also spent time on line searching for tutorials on both camera and software operation. All in all, I would recommend the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best action camera The image quality is excellent particularly in 4K. The image stabilization works well and is a definite improvement over my GoPro. I purchased my camera by itself and have been trying to get a LV remote ever since but without success - the LVR needs to be sold as a separate accessory.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Limited 4K Recording. Only good for outdoors... So you CANNOT record at 4K using the "Narrow" "Angle setting". Which means it's fairly useless at recording indoors, kids birthdays, etc. With the "XAVC S 4K" "Movie format" you MUST record at "Wide". The "Angle setting" option disappears from menu. So it does not suit my requirements. I wish they made it clear on website. Manuals also very limited. Cryptic menu options that are hard to translate to technical (they are trying to dumb it down.) Lastly I wish they used the new H.265 format, perhaps that will come with a firmware update. Lastly, awkward to control with my iPhone 7 through app, although I liked the app. SO DISAPPOINTING. Probably will be a great underwater/action camera. But not what I was expecting.
