It’s the king of action cameras, or at least we think so. We’ve been wow’d over and over by this little camera with its Zeiss optics, built in stabilizer and NFC connectivity. In a rush, I can grab this camera, push the red button and in an instant, the camera turns on and begins recording automatically. Because of the stabilizer the footage is 10x more smooth than my other action cameras. The body is splash proof so I don’t need to put the underwater housing on unless I’m planning to submerge it.
The audio works extremely well when it’s not in the case and the vivid setting needs little to no tweaking in Photoshop or Premiere. If I only need one action camera I typically reach for my Sony because I prefer the shape and functionality of it. There are lots of Sony specific accessories but I already have a lot of the GoPro mounts so I purchased a GoPro Hero Mount to ¼ inch adapter and it works great.
Watch to see some side by side testing of the Sony vs Go Pro:
