So I've lashed out and bought the new 4K Sony Camera for the upcoming ski season. All reports say it blows the 4K Go Pro Black out of the water for image and colour quality.

Have watched quite a few videos. And it really does out perform the Go Pro by quite a margin.

Though everyone does say Go Pro Accessories are still ahead. Though image quality was my main criteria. As I'm looking more, to pull high quality stills off the video, using my smartphone and computer.

I cannot decide whether to get the remote control and viewer for $150. Or just use the remote app on my smartphone. It just saves pulling the phone out to check that there's no crap on the lens. Which has caught me out, before. Or check that camera is on and off.

It also helps when you give the camera to someone else, and you can still operate it.

What do peeps think ?

I'm always interested in camera stuff but after years of boring people to death with my own movies I find myself asking: why?
it's just too hard to get a decent product using a device that's attached to your body while you're moving
I'm doing stills only now

I'm always interested in camera stuff but after years of boring people to death with my own movies I find myself asking: why?
it's just too hard to get a decent product using a device that's attached to your body while you're moving
I'm doing stills only now
Agree. As I said. I'm looking to pull higher quality action stills from the footage, daily. Then perhaps just produce a 1 minute youtube highlights, when you have unusual footage.

I've been able to pull stills from my 1080p Sony POV, directly on my phone. And it's actually quicker than doing it on a PC. Just pop the memory card into the phone. Scroll through very quickly. Take snapshot. Share directly to the web. Literally takes 5 minutes.

But I'm not sure how the phone will handle the 4K footage.

But the stills off the old 1080p camera, are definitely marginal.

I've downloaded 4K Video taken from the new Sony camera. And the results of pulling stills off it, were chalk and cheese compared to my 1080p stuff. Real crisp from the new camera. And as long as there isn't objects close at edges, rounding is negligible. And with the higher resolution, not a problem to crop out, if it is noticeable.

I guess I'm trying to avoid, having to pull out the phone, and spoil my run, and the others I'm filming. Simply ski ahead, turn around and get the shots.

So to give you an idea of the stills. I just pulled this off a Tony Hawk video he made, using the Sony 4K. Pretty impressive from a Action Cam.

I've put it in full resolution so you can zoom.

I'd go for the remote control and viewer. Haven't seen this Sony cam yet so I don't know if it has a LCD preview screen.

To be able to immediately review footage on the spot is essential, in my opinion.

Yes the 4K Sony camera, allows for immediate review on the remote. The earlier Sony cameras don't.

Agree when chest mounting. Not much different when helmet mounted.

But as I said. I'm strictly after the best image and colours. Sony is certainly ahead in that area.

Also, I'll just say, I picked up the Sony for $418 delivered, from a retail store in Brisbane. That's complete with underwater case, and all mounting for a helmet mount.

Go Pro 4K was significantly more expensive.

Yeah I agree with the price thing. Current model GoPros are too expensive. That's why I went with the Hero 3+ Silver. Not 4k but is HD. Paid around $350 I think. Ive been pretty happy with it so far. Waiting to test it out in the snow.

So I bought the remote and chest mount as well. All should be here by Friday. I'll take them for a spin on the weekend. Put up the results.

So I've lashed out and bought the new 4K Sony Camera for the upcoming ski season. All reports say it blows the 4K Go Pro Black out of the water for image and colour quality.

Have watched quite a few videos. And it really does out perform the Go Pro by quite a margin.

Though everyone does say Go Pro Accessories are still ahead. Though image quality was my main criteria. As I'm looking more, to pull high quality stills off the video, using my smartphone and computer.

I cannot decide whether to get the remote control and viewer for $150. Or just use the remote app on my smartphone. It just saves pulling the phone out to check that there's no crap on the lens. Which has caught me out, before. Or check that camera is on and off.

It also helps when you give the camera to someone else, and you can still operate it.

What do peeps think ?

All I keep thinking is

"Go Go gadget wrist!"
