Sony Action Camera with 4K Support Announced at CES 2015 – Details



Sony X1000V Action Cam

Sony is now taking head-to-head competition in action camera category by introducing their new Action Cam today, which is now capable of shooting 4K videos. Though, there are still some models that will be limited to 1080p. Not surprisingly, the Full HD action comes will sport a lower price tag that higher-res siblings.

Sony X1000V Action Cam

The FDR-X1000V supports the 4K video recording at 30fps. While the $499 has the same shape and design as Sony’s earlier action cameras, but it can now shoot 3840 x 2160 pixel videos. The device will be going on sale starting this March.

A 4K TV would be directly able to play the 4K video captured by the X1000V. Other noticeable camera specifications include an ultra-wide-angle 170-degree lens with Exmor R CMOS sensor and Bionz X image processor.

With Sony employing its full pixel readout technology in this action camera like it did on its interchangeable lens cameras, the image quality and resolution increases a lot.

The X1000V doesn’t use the optical image stabilization, but it does uses company’s SteadyShot electronic stabilization system, which according to the company has been fine-tuned for better performance when the camera is mounted to a drone.

Moreover, the new Action Cam from Sony can shoot 1080p videos at 120fps or 720p videos at 240fps for slow-motion effects. Company also added few extra manual exposure controls like white balance adjustment. The X1000V is accompanied by AS200V, which offers many of the same features, though, is limited to lower resolutions (1080p for standard frame rates).

While action cameras are more about where it can be mounted and be rough enough to stay alive in harsh conditions for them. The GoPro has the upper hand on this because of its ability to mount anywhere and the ruggedness. Sony is working hard to compete in this market as it is also launching handful of accessories with X1000V and AS200V, such as a new helmet mount and snowboard / surfboard mount, and the X1000V comes with a waterproof case that can be used up to 10 meters underwater.

With GoPro’s domination, Sony’s cameras have to be impressive in order to sway action camera shoppers this year.
