SONY FDR-X3000 CAMERA Review 2017

Although the first GoPro comes to mind in terms of the action camcorder, Sony’s new action camcorder FDR-X3000 is ready to enter into an ambitious race with its performance and features. Sony, which has achieved great success with its photographic machines without mirror, aims to maintain the same success in the market of action cameras. Sony is in a tough fight with its biggest rival, GoPro, raising the pitch in every new action camcorder it offers. Targeting the GoPro Hero 5 Black, the Sony FDR-X3000 has the ability to meet the expectations of those interested in extreme sport or those interested in action cameras.SONY FDR-X3000 CAMERA Review 2017

As with previous models, the Sony FDR-X3000 comes with a bright white body and its ergonomic and lightweight design makes it easy to hold. On the right side is a small screen for controlling the camera, a record and power button at the top of the camcorder where the menu and control keys are located. Let me forget it; The side lighting does not use the backlight. If you want to change the settings of the camera in the dark, you need to use the live preview remote.

On the back of the camera, microHDMI, microUSB and 3.5 mm microphone input ports are provided to go back to the connection points. We can say that the microphone connection will be preferred by those who want to use an external microphone for better sound recording. At the bottom of the camera is a microSD card slot. Other than Sony’s M2 memory cards, microSD cards can also be inserted into the camera.

One of the most striking features of the Sony FDR-X3000 is its advanced stabilization system. The camera uses optical image stabilization, called Balanced Optical SteadyShot, which prevents the video from jarring. When we watch the videos we recorded, we can say that this feature really works very well. When you use the camera especially in a car, in a car, or on a bicycle, this feature increases. Clearer and smoother images, this feature was quite useful even in strong jolts. The camera reveals the difference with the Zeiss Tessar lens. Thanks to the Zeiss lens that we are accustomed to from Sony’s cameras, the camera has high performance.

Except for the water container and remote control that come out of the box, the camera can also be fitted with optional accessories from Sony. These accessories include an extendable stabilizer, monopod, finger grip, handlebars link and many more accessories. It is possible to improve your shooting technique by using any of these accessories. In addition to the camera, there is also wireless support included in copier cameras that Sony has been selling for years.
