CES: Sony introduces new 4K Action Cam

For our friends at Sony, CES 2015 seems to be all about Hi-Res. Last night at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas they announced everything from a new 4K Ultra HD TV line (with Android OS support and Playstation Now) to a new Hi-Res Audio Walkman. Most excitingly there were also two new HD Action Cam announcements.

Sony Action Cam FDR-X1000 The new Sony 4K Action Cam delivers Sony’s vast expertise in 4K video production in a compact, splash-proof POV camera design, allowing adventurers to capture stunning 4K content with ease, which can be played back on a compatible 4K TV directly from the camera through HDMI. It also features enhanced HD video performance with upgraded stabilization, image quality and high-frame rate shooting. The FDR-X1000V features a ZEISS Tessar lens with an ultra-wide angle 170 degree field of view, a back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS sensor and an acclaimed BIONZ X processor, ensuring that video quality remains consistently strong across all shooting environments. The versatile new X1000V camera features an updated version of Action Cam’s leading SteadyShot™ stabilization technology, adding electronic image stabilization that is approximately 3 times more effective at suppressing high-frequency motor vibration. This allows users to capture clear, vibration-free aerial footage using “drones” and enhances action footage of fast-moving subjects.

Sony Action Cam AS200V In addition to the new 4K model, Sony has also introduced the sleek Action Cam HDR-AS200V, which shares many of the same advanced features and exciting technologies as the X1000V including full pixel readout image, improved image stabilization, clean HDMI out and upgraded manual controls. The AS200V can shoot full 1080p HD/50Mbps video5 at 60p, 720p HD video at 120p and WVGA video at 240p.

Both Cameras are expected to be available March 2015. We’ll keep you updated with the latest price and availability as it become available.
