If you are familiar with any of the previous Action Cams from Sony, the design of the X1000V will come as no surprise. The camera is housed in a shotgun-style body which has a flattened base so it can stand on its own (outside of the waterproof case) with no support. A tripod mount and external mic input are located at the base.
Buying a sport/action camera has never been a simple process, but now as we move towards the next generation of 4 K action camera, there are more options than there have ever been before.
For a week I looked the best and cheapest action camera from the market – under 100 USD.
I chose action camera with Sony IMX078 sensor and Novatek 96660 chipset. I believe it provides the best image.
With the same components Hawkeye Firefly 7S It is much cheaper than SJ5000X, Git2 or Explorer Pro. And has a lovely design in my opinion.
