Sony Launches FDR-X3000R and HDR-AS300R Action Cams

Sony has launched its latest FDR-X3000R 4K and HDR-AS300R Full HD Action Cam. Both the action cams come with Sony’s patented Balanced Optical SteadyShot (B.O.SS) image stabilization, even in 4K and high speed recording modes. This new addition enables both the cams to be mounted on a bicycle or car dashboard, or can be handheld and yet deliver smooth video footage.

The new models come supplied with Sony’s latest Live-View Remote, which is 30 percent more compact than its predecessor to make it more compact and portable. It provides ability to control shooting settings without touching the camera. It can also be worn like a wristband using Shooting Grip (VCT-STG1) or the new Finger Grip (AKA-FGP1) or attached to mount accessories such as the optional Handlebar Mount (VCT-HM2). Users can also control the camera with their smartphones and tablets with the free PlayMemories Mobile app.

In addition to being able to shoot balanced 4K video on the FDR-X3000R, both the FDR-X3000R and HDR-AS300R offer the option to capture approx. 8.3-megapixel interval recording shots for stunning 4K and Full HD time-lapse videos can be created using the Action Cam App. Videos can also be edited using the free Action Cam Movie Creator PC software and share with whoever you want. Both the Action cipro drug online cams are powered by BIONZ X processor.

Light is captured via an Exmor R CMOS sensor and the new ZEISS Lens delivers a more natural image with significant reduction in distortion. High-bitrate recordings can be captured in 4K at 100Mbps and Full HD at 50Mbps in the XAVC S format. The FDR-X3000R can also shoot 120p in Full HD while the HDR-AS300R can shoot 120p in HD for impressive slow-motion footage. The models also come with a stereo mic.

A new option of smooth zooming (up to 3x) during recording is also added to the new Action cams. It also offers Loop Recording, high speed recording in Full HD at 100p for stunning slow motion action, Live Streaming via the Ustream platform, Burst Shooting, and the ability to manually adjust white balance and auto exposure shift. Both the models sport a splash-proof body and is supplied with a fully waterproof Underwater Housing (MPK-UWH1) that is effective down to 60 meters. It also offers an in-built tripod socket, giving the cams the flexibility to attach to various accessories without the need for any adapters

The new FDR-X3000R and HDR-AS300R are priced at AED 2,099 and AED 1,599 respectively, and are available at the Sony store in The Dubai Mall and other retailers across the UAE.
