Introducing 4K recording plus 120 fps Full HD slow-motion capture to the Action Cam line is the FDR-X1000V from Sony. This versatile, splash resistant camcorder is designed to go wherever you do - whether on a mountain expedition or just for a walk in the park. Featuring Wi-Fi, the camera can be operated remotely using a mobile device or with the separately available RMLVR2 Live-View Remote. It features a water-resistant design and simple one-button operation. Video is recorded to a separately available microSD card, with the option for web-friendly MP4 and professional XAVC S compression. Apart from being splash proof, the camera includes a 33'-rated underwater housing, an adhesive mount, and one battery to get you started. Further extending its potential, there is a plethora of separately available mounts and accessories, enabling you to wear the camera or helmet mount it for POV action shots, attach it to a bike or vehicle, secure it in a static location, adhere it to a board or boat, or even see the world from the perspective of your pet. 4K (3840 x 2160) Recording Using the XAVC S codec, the FDR-X1000V can record UltraHD resolution 4K (3840 x 2160) at 30p with a bitrate of 100 Mb/s or 24p with a bitrate of 60 Mb/s. Besides 4K, it can record Full HD 1080p at 50 Mb/s in XAVC S and up to 28 Mb/s in the higher- compressed MP4 mode Professional XAVC S Codec The higher bitrate compression of XAVC S means in this setting the camera records up to 100 Mb/s; in 4K and up to 50 Mb/s in 1080p - whereas the MP4 modes record a maximum of 28 Mb/s (at 60p and slow motion). A higher bitrate means less quality loss due to compression and more information to work with in post when color correcting or manipulating the image. Additionally, XAVC S supports professional timecode and UB (user bit). Timecode settings can be accessed through the mobile app or the separately available RM-LVR2 remote Improved Steady Shot Image Stabilization The FDR-X1000V features further refinements to the image stabilization compared to previous Action Cam models - in particular, anti-vibration optimization for use on remote control aircraft 170 FOV Ultra-Wide Lens An ultra-wide lens helps add an immersive POV feel to your movies while incorporating as much into the frame as possible Full HD Slow Motion Capability With the ability to record 120 fps in 1080p, the FDR-X1000V allows you to slow down fast action so you can perceive detail otherwise inscrutable to the human eye. For extreme slow-downs, there is also a 240 fps mode shooting at 720p HD resolution. Both modes record in the less-compressed XAVC S codec. In addition, there is 720p at 120 fps and 480p at 240 fps recording in the higher compression, easier to share MP4 (H.264) setting Direct Pixel Read-Out When shooting 4K, there is a direct 1:1 relationship between photosites (pixels on the sensor) and the pixels that make up the video frame. This reduces the jagged edge effect and false coloration that can occur when pixel binning - that is, combining blocks of four photosites together to create one video pixel as many 4K video cameras do Loop Recording Loop recording records video continuously, preserving the last 5, 20, 60, or 120 minutes of footage - depending on setting. As soon as something important happens, you can commit the duration of the loop permanently to memory and continue recording seamlessly. In addition to the user selectable 5, 20, 60, and 120 minute duration, there is an Unlimited mode that will fill up the remaining free space on the card. During loop recording, any previously recorded material never be overwritten Wi-Fi for Remote Monitoring and Operation With the PlayMemories Mobile (PMM) app, you can remotely control up to five Action Cams from a single mobile device. The app allows you to view a live feed from the camera, and the multi-view features means you can view up to five cameras at once, or just select one and view it in full screen. Controls available thr
