So, I have had this camera for a few weeks now, and I have to say, I am in love with it. It is one of the best cameras I have ever owned, and trust me…I have owned a LOT of cameras in my day. Too many actually. This thing is light. It’s versatile. It’s packed with features. It’s CHEAP. Check it out and let me know what you think below!

Grab this camera:
Sony FDR-X3000:

ND Filter:
Lens Protector:
Pistol Grip:
Wind Screen (dead cats):

Here’s the stream I did at Legoland with this camera…on twitch.

I just live. For lots of things. Bacon being one. Tech is another. Music is also one. Coffee is pretty important too. Oh and my dog Abbey. Luria rates pretty high on this list too. She's at least in the top 10.

  1. I’m glad Sony finally earned some respect from you! I’m a long time fan of Sony, with cameras, tv, dvd/Ray player, I’m full in but the thing missing for vlog is that flip out screen. Come on Sony make a front flip camera!!!!

    • It could yes. Would give you better quality. You would most likely want to take it off superwide…although, with your set the way it is, it may actually allow you to show more. Amazon has a GREAT return policy. 🙂

    • Yes, you will almost always need a capture card with any camera that is not a USB camera. I am using the LiveU Solo personally, and running from the camera into that device, and then sending that signal back home to my server so that I can get the twitch overlays etc.
