Bring great to the great outdoors
Enjoy Action Cam’s 4K quality and other advanced features.
Sony’s latest addition to its Action Cam line-up FDR-X1000V combines all the features experienced users have been waiting for. 4K picture quality is equal to that of current Hollywood blockbusters, the professional-grade XAVC S codec ensures beautiful footage with high bitrate recording2, and handy features like the Highlight Movie Maker3 help you turn your shots into a mesmerizing masterpiece.
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.
Full pixel readout without pixel binning
The sensor reads out image data from every pixel which frees the video from aliasing, moire, and false color artifacts.
High bit rate to get all the subtle details
Sharp, ultra-wide 170° lens
Get epic wide-angle views with the 170? ZEISS® Tessar® lens. Or switch to a SteadyShot-stabilized 120?3 view. Either way, you'll always be capturing beautiful shots of the most challenging ski slopes, mountain trails, or pitted asphalt paths.
XAVC S for pro-level recording
Sony’ s professional grade codec is available in consumer cameras for stunning footage at home with high bitrate recording.5
Advanced SteadyShot beats bumps and blur
From the rockiest trail to exciting cycling, you want to shoot crisp, clear video your audience will actually enjoy watching. And better yet, advanced SteadyShot is more effective against low-amplitude vibration—such as that from radio-controlled helicopters. So now you can get amazing panoramic shots from your drone with shake-free clarity.

Interval Still Recording lets you get creative with videos
Capture subtle movement with detail and precision. Interval recording takes a still photo every 5, 10, 30, or 60 seconds, so they can be stitched together into a time-lapse video. This is especially useful for continuous recording over a prolonged period.
