Ultimate image stabilization
The FDR-X3000 combines brilliant
4K resolution with Balanced Optical SteadyShot™ image stabilization for
advanced camera-shake compensation. Unlike digital image stabilization,
Balanced Optical SteadyShot is significantly more effective at cutting
the effects of camera shake internally, the camera’s lens and sensor are
joined and moved together controlling the entire optical path as one
floating unit. This advanced stabilization system makes it easier to
shoot beautifully clear, stable images while traveling, bike riding, and
in other active situations.
Professional 4K with ZEISS® lens and Exmor R® CMOS sensor
a new ZEISS® Tessar lens with significantly less lens distortion than
previous models, the FDR-X3000 is also equipped with a back-illuminated
Exmor R® CMOS sensor and an acclaimed BIONZ X® processor, ensuring that
video quality remains consistently strong across all settings. With full
pixel readout without pixel binning the FDR-X3000 produces
exceptionally high resolution and accurate colors in both 4K and Full HD
videos. The built-in stereo mic with wind noise reduction reduces the
impact of wind interference.
