I know that the X3000 has adjustable FoV's, however, is 4K only available in the widest FoV, and going to the medium FoV knocks you down from 4K to 1080p?

I suppose, they achieve medium and narrow FoV not optically, but rather by cropping the active sensor area.

Because the 4K mode requires maximum resolution of the entire sensor, the camera can't zoom in by cropping in this case.

Same with high speed modes, I guess, the camera needs to employ all the pixels available to register their values sequentially, hence only full sensor mode, i.e. only wide angle.
