Sony's latest action camera delivers a full case hunt to the Go Pro giant.
I'm Lexy Sevvides for CNET reviewing the Sony Action Cam X1000V.
Like all of Sony's previous action cams, this model features a shotgun-style design and a 170 degree lens to capture all your thrills and spills.
The camera comes with a case that is waterproof to ten meters or thirty-three feet.
The camera itself is also splash proof.
And if you want to use the camera underwater, be aware that water droplets cling to the front of the curve of the waterproof case, which can be quite annoying.
The companion app gives you full control over recording, letting you change settings, frame rates, and even review images and video right on your smart phone screen.
You can also choose exposure compensation and white balance, which is a nice addition.
The camera has a stereo mic and around the side a screen and a couple of buttons to navigate between menu options.
As I mentioned, the X1000B can shoot in 4K using Sony's own XABC codec.
Plus, you also get recording at 100 megabits per second.
Now if you're thinking that the Go Pro can also.
Record in 4K.
You're probably wondering why would you get the Sony?
Well, the Sony comes with image stabilization when you're shooting at 1080p, a feature that the Go Pro lacks.
Now this is particularly useful if you're shooting in bumpy situations.
The X1000Z is an impressive little camera, and the video quality, especially at 4K, is crisp and smooth.
Still image quality is also great.
The action cam is available for $499 US dollars, 359 pounds,.
For 599 Australian dollars.
You can check out the full review of the X1000B over at www.cnet.com.
