My first action cam became the X3000 with various gopro accessories.
This is a good product but with less details that give a little minus points.
- The screen, it is not backlit, so good to see something on it if it's dark outside and you have no other light source available.
- ISO / Dark filming, there is a significant noise in the image when shooting in darkness (not excessively disturbing).
- The microphone (this can be both positive and negative), it is extremely sensitive and captures the smallest details you can imagine. This means that if it's windy, it will be guaranteed to be heard; in other words, you must get an external microphone or make a DIY windscreen to get around the problem.
Since I have no previous experience with similar products, I can not compare, but I am satisfied with my purchase. Has worked well with gopro mounts via adapter. The still images you can carry with your camera are fully capable of uploading online or for similar purposes.
Recommend to get absolutely at least 64GB of memory for this if you want to shoot in 4K. 64gb is enough for 1h 22m movie in 4K 30fps 100mbit.
Stabilization works really well as familiar with this camera, making shooting on free hand almost makes a gimbal unnecessary depending on what purpose you're shooting.
The battery is high grade, the memory card runs out of battery life.
