Sony has unveiled a new Action Cam to bring its feature set a little closer to industry leader GoPro. The FDR-X1000V will have 4K at 30fps and come in at a cost of $499, which matches the cost of the new GoPro Hero 4 Black. Sony is claiming better image stabilization, decreased wind noise and a wider field of view. All those features are yet to be determined until we're able to get it tested in the field. Nonetheless, more competition is better, so this addition to the action cam market is a good thing. There will also be a lower priced version (AS200V) that shoots full HD priced at $299. Expect them both to hit the shelves in March, 2015.
