As expected, Sony has today updated its Action Cam line-up with the launch of a new model that can shoot 4K resolution video.
The camera has been dubbed the Sony FDR-X1000V and has the same shape and design as the other Action Cam models in the line-up but can also shoot 3840 x 2160 pixel video at 30 frames per second.
Video recorded from the video can also be streamed directly to a 4K TV via a HDMI cable once it has been filmed.
The camera also features an ultra-wide angle 170 degree lens, a back-illuminated Exmoor R CMOS sensor, Sony’s Bionz X image processor, and Sony’s SteadyShot electronic stabilisation system which is said to be fine-tuned for better performance when the camera is mounted to a drone.
The FDR-X1000V can also shoot 1080p video at 120 frames per second or 720p at 240 frame per second, and the camera also features a number of controls for white balance adjustment and exposure.
The X1000V will available in March for $499.
It will also be joined by the A5200V which is more or less the same camera but without the 4K video recording. The A5200V will be available for $299 when it launches.
As of yet no worldwide availability has been announced.
