We can say that Sony has worked well for launching its latest design against GoPro. The finer 4K details and added steadyshot image stabilization feature makes it really useful for athletes and other adventure sports lovers. We can say that Sony is working in right direction. If you are in favour of flexibility and want to access the GPS tagging feature for your shoots then it is really good to go ahead with FDR-X1000.

Quite good action camera

from Pevly

Overall Sony’s FDR-x1000v is quite good action camera. It’s very well-built, does more than good job in terms of video, photo and audio quality. This one is perfect for true adrenaline-junkies who need something reliable, well-supported and compact that can shoot videos in true 4K.

Top-notch 4K action camera

from Expert Reviews

There’s a lot to like about the Sony FDR-X1000V. For the money, it’s great value for what it delivers and has lots of functions you don’t get from a GoPro Hero4 Black, such as image stabilisation and GPS data. In a straight image quality comparison, however, it doesn’t match up.

Good image quality and a variety of options, but usability should be better

from Stuff

The X1000V is all business; it doesn’t deal in gimmicks such as ‘shake to edit’, mobile apps or 4G livestreaming. It’s focused on top image quality. An admirable goal, but we get the feeling that all the thought might have been put into the image and cramming 4k@30fps into...More

The X1000V is all business; it doesn’t deal in gimmicks such as ‘shake to edit’, mobile apps or 4G livestreaming. It’s focused on top image quality. An admirable goal, but we get the feeling that all the thought might have been put into the image and cramming 4k@30fps into an action camera, rather than the overall package and the user experience.

There’s plenty to love about the FDR-X1000V/W, from its overall design to its photo and video chops. This is a little camera that definitely delivers a lot of that Sony quality we’ve become used to seeing for a lot of devices. While we’re going to avoid overt comparison with GoPro’s powerful little Hero action cameras here, it’s going to pop up here and there.

GPS tracking to record data such as speed, NFC connection for a Live-View display which can control up to 5 cameras! The body is splash water proof and an underwater case is also included. AND the price is lower than for a GoPro Hero 4 black edition.

When it comes to Sony, the feature that is obviously above the GoPro offering is the great audio quality that allows to record audible conversations during the action, which is not the case with the GoPro Hero4 (check our video in the sound quality paragraph).

At this point I would advise to carefully read this review and select the functions and features that you like the most to make your own choice, since the image quality of both cameras is comparable (check our movies). The Sony 4K Action Cam is a very good wearable camera for shooting high quality 4K videos while performing a wide range of different action sports, including skiing.

Sony’s 4K Action Cam isn’t a GoPro killer, but the power to record 4K video at 30p makes it a worthy competitor. Amateur action enthusiasts and video professionals alike will enjoy the variety of features and shooting options. Because it’s water resistant even without a case, you can slip it into your pocket for a day out hiking and not worry about a bit of rain ruining your $500 camera.

The current leaders of the action camera

Camcorder Reviews

The FDR-X1000V is the underdog in this action cam battle and it threw some great punches to the competition leveraging the things the company learned from making great cameras and camcorders. It is a worthy $499 pick and it is likely for its successor to be even better.

High-end action cam brings 4K shooting in a small, portable package.

from Reviewed

Sony did succeed in providing the X1000V with slightly sharper 4K video than the GoPro. But it doesn't make up for the atrocious menus, clunky controls, relatively shallow diving depth, and lackluster ecosystem of accessories. It's just hard to recommend it when the Hero 4 Black costs the same amount of money.
