  • The Sony FDR-X3000 has a built in GPS, and the free Sony software will let you put that info right in the video. Here is an example of my motorcycle ride with the GPS info on the bottom of the video.
  • I didn't know the cable only worked in one direction. I guess I got lucky the first time. I have never unplugged it from the gimbal. As far as the zoom speed, I don't know of a way to slow it ...
  • I haven't tried any kind of remote control software, I just use the joystick on the gimbal. I do have the short USB cable that plugs in from the camera to the gimbal, that lets you control the ...
  • The hand grip bracket is really nice. I leave mine on most of the time. Only thing wrong with it is that you have to take it off to get the memory card out or change the battery. As far as the ...
  • That factory rep in that video isn’t much help. Just get the bracket like I did, or don’t use it upside down.
  • That adjusting screw that he has the camera mounted to in that video, is not 1/4x20 thread, so I can't mount my camera there. I would have to drill out that hole and retap it to 1/4x20, in order ...
  • The adjustment screw hole is a smaller size hole, it is not 1/4x20 size threads. So you would have to drill it out to mount the camera at that spot and ruin the gimbal bracket, and you won't be ...
  • The new Mavic is not meant to be an upgrade to existing owners, is more as an incentive to those that dont tha don't have one yet.
  • Replied in Sony RX0
    Just put an RX100 on your helmet, it's cheaper.
  • I'm the guy with the RX100V and the Crane M. That combo works great with the add-on grip, and with the extra cable, you can zoom the lens straight from the gimbal, and take pictures and movies ...
  • The problem with the Sony action cam is that they make very few mounting options. Your best bet is to convert your camera to use Gopro mounts. Gopro makes a bunch of different swivel adapters. ...
  • Replied in 360 Camera
    If you are shooting still pictures, it is pretty easy to get rid of the tripod. If you are shooting 360 degrees movies, it is a lot more complicated. I seen people doing it with drone 360's, where ...
  • This whole thread has been a gigantic waste of my time and should be deleted. Very little info about the X3000, just a couple of guys arguing about which camera is better, the Gopro 5, or the ...
  • I own three 4K cameras, a Panasonic GH4, a Sony RX100M5, and the FDR-X3000. If you want a camera that won't turn off in the heat, get a Panasonic. My GH4 can record non stop in the Texas heat, ...
  • Are you using it in the waterproof housing? I notice a smudge on the top part of the video. So either your lens is dirty or scratched, or your camera is defective. My X3000 is in focus at ...
  • I just got a FDR-X3000 last week, so I don't know if I'll be much help. I mainly got it to put it on top of my motorcycle helmet, and I have mainly been trying to get a microphone working without ...
  • The problem with the small gimbals and big cameras is that they are really made for small cameras. Although they may handle the weight of a big camera, they may not have enough clearance to use ...
  • The mounting problem that they are probably referring to is that with the stock setup, the RX100 on the Crane M won't work in upside down mode. It works great when the handle is under the camera, ...
