Ultimate image stabilization

The FDR-X3000 combines brilliant 4K resolution with Balanced Optical SteadyShot image stabilization for advanced camera-shake compensation. Unlike digital image stabilization, Balanced Optical SteadyShot is significantly more effective at cutting the effects of camera shake internally, the camera’s lens and sensor are joined and moved together controlling the entire optical path as one floating unit. 

Remote camera control and viewing

Users can stream a live preview and control the Action Cam with the optional Live-View Remote or utilize Sony’s PlayMemories Mobile application on a smart device4 - available for both Android and iOS. Both have the ability to control several camera capabilities including shooting settings, start/stop recording, power on/off and more.

Tough body endures harsh conditions

The FDR-X3000 body alone is splashproof and freezeproof. With the supplied Waterproof Housing it’s dustproof, shockproof and waterproof to 197ft / 60m. So whether you’re hiking on a rainy day, skiing or snowboarding, making dirt biking movies, surfing the waves or exploring undersea, Action Cam provides real-world rugged design. 

Underwater Housing as standard gear

Take the FDR-X3000 Action Cam diving to 197ft / 60m using the supplied Underwater Housing (MPK-UWH1 ) - no need to buy optional gear. Equipped with a flat port in front of the lens and convenient camera buttons on the side - lets you easily control all functions through the housing. 

Selectable viewing angle and 3x zoom 5

Capture epic ultra-wide -angle views with the ZEISS Tessar lens or choose your own viewing angle from Wide, Medium or Narrow. Changing the angle of view also helps correct for the barrel distortion - common in POV cameras. In addition, seamlessly adjust up to 3x smooth zoom mode, which enables you to change zooming while shooting. 

High quality 12 MP up to 10 fps

Catch fast-moving action with burst shooting. This allows you to take a maximum of ten high-quality shots of a trick or transition, making it the perfect feature for those who love to go back and analyze their style or select the critical moment. Burst mode settings: 10 fps/1 sec., 5 fps/2 sec., 2fps /5 sec.
