The 4K Action Cam is Sony’s GoPro competitor and a very good one at that. The company has now updated the 4K Action Cam which bears model number X3000R features Optical Image Stabilization. It has several other new features as well including but not limited to face detection and a new menu system that’s easier to navigate. Sony has unveiled another action cam which is exactly the same aside from the fact that it can only record video at up to 1080p resolution.
Sony’s X3000R 4K Action Camera has Optical Image Stabilization which is undoubtedly one of its biggest features. The company’s action cameras have had digital stabilization for quite some time now and it’s finally adopting mechanical image stabilization for its action cameras which is a good thing as it provides more value for money to customers.
The updated action camera from Sony also features a new lens which reduces distortion. It also features a new version of Sony’s Exmor R CMOS image sensor that’s back-lit now. The refreshed system menu makes it much easier to use the action camera.
The X3000R 4K Action Camera from Sony costs $400 and it will be available for purchase later this month. The AS300R Action Camera costs $300 and it can only record video up to 1080p HD. It’s also going to be available later this month.
