Features

Picture of X1000VR  4K Action Cam with Wi-Fi & GPS

Shoot in low light with Exmor R™ CMOS Sensor

Faithfully reproduce every aspect of the scene, even in low light. The Exmor R CMOS sensor’s distinct design puts wiring behind the light-capturing photo sites for vastly improved sensitivity and reduced noise. Combined with higher-speed parallel signal processing and more rapid signal conversion, images have a wider dynamic range and rich gradations for intense detail and clarity.

BIONZ X™ for superior detail and texture

All digital cameras need to convert the light captured by their sensor to a beautiful digital photograph. The engine that powers this conversion is just as important as your lens and a high-resolution sensor--so Sony developed the remarkable BIONZ X processor, allowing more natural details, more realistic images, richer tonal gradations, and lower noise while shooting both photos and movies.

World-renowned ZEISS optics

Leveraging over 150 years of experience in precision optics, the ZEISS lens gives your recordings intense contrast and sharpness, free from glare and reflection thanks to an advanced multi-layer coating.
