Camera not working before or after Sony service

John from Rockwall, TX on 5/21/2017

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I purchased the camera and used it for about 3 weeks and the problems started. The camera shuts off randomly (not over heated). If the camera stays on (stand by or recording) it gets very hot over 115 degrees (with ambient indoor temps 75 degrees). The camera has a slight out of focus issue, too. Sony instructed me send the camera to Precision Camera. The camera was "repaired" and shipped 30+ days later to me. The camera was not repaired. It was returned with the exact same issues I sent the camera in to be repaired. Unbelievable! Not a single issue was repaired, resolved,and or improved. Sony has instructed me to send the camera back in for repairs. That is another 30+ days, and there is no guarantee the camera will be returned completely repaired. I then called Square Trade (I purchased a 3 year warranty from Crutchfield) and was told I have to go through Sony to get a resolution. Square Trade will not do any service, exchange, and or refund. I found out that Square Trade also uses Precision Camera for repairs. I purchased an extended warranty and a new camera but... I still will not have a "working camera" to use with family this summer. Wow! This is my situation with the Sony FDR-X3000R and Square Trade.

Pros: None

All I could ask for in an action cam.

The FDR-X3000 is a super action camera. Really liked the previous 1000. Love the 3000! Easy to use once you understand the controls. Very easy to switch between video and photos. I don't use the remote. Bought it but have found that with practice that point and shoot works fine. The image stabilizer works well. Battery life is decent. The colors are really excellent. I use it a lot especially when I need a wider lens than on my Sony RX10ll. Highly recommend this gem.

Pros: Ease of use, color, Stability

Cons: None yet

The Best Action Camera

Binh from Newport News, VA on 5/5/2017

This is an amazing action camera. I should have bought this way before I went with GoPro. I originally went with GoPro because of their name. Boy I was wrong. The GoPro Hero 4 Black that I originally bought was just plagued with problems and supposedly it's a common theme with them. But anyway... The Sony is amazing. The image quality straight from the camera is amazing. I've never liked the GoPro image quality or sound straight from the camera. So that the image quality improvement and niceness is great. The Sony also has amazing Image Stabilization called steady shot which Sony is very well known for! The only thing I have to give a strike for on this camera is the remote. The remote, while optional is like a 4 stars out of 5. Because I can't figure out how to turn off the time out time. So the screen won't black out while I'm filming. It's probably an option I haven't found yet but the remote works well besides that one issue! It's sad how Sony doesn't push these like GoPro pushes their product because this Sony is lightyears better then the GoPro...

Pros: Everything

Cons: Nothing :)
