Sony has continued to update its sports camera lineup by announcing the FDR-X3000Rmodel last September. The main difference compared to its older siblings is that it now boasts an advanced stabilization feature called the Balanced Optical SteadyShot. We just got our test unit from the company and here’s our unboxing and first impressions on it.
The model itself is called FDR-X3000 but this specific variant is the FDR-X3000R which comes with a Live-View Remote Kit. It is only available as a bundle to the X3000 so if you think you need a display to view and preview your shots, you may opt for this package (which obviously costs more).
The package consists of the X3000 itself, a hard case that makes it dust, shock, and waterproof for as deep as 60m. Do take note that the camera on its own is already water-resistant to some extent and that’s a good thing. Additional items include the live view monitor, a strap to attach it to and wear on your wrist, the monitor’s charging cradle, a mount that has a 1/4-inch thread attachment at the bottom, and a snap attachment tool.
