Gizmodo's Brent Rose takes the upcoming Sony 4K Action Cam X1000V for a test run, shooting the below footage.

He writes, "How about the image quality? While this first test footage is by no means comprehensive (i.e. I only shot in snow, and in a few different modes), it gives us a good early indication of what the camera can do. The clips in the video above were shot in 4K at 30 frames per second, 1080p at 120fps, and 720p at 240fps. These are the same banner modes the GoPro's Hero4 Black has, now that its new firmware has rolled out, though it's worth noting that the Hero has a wider range of shooting modes to choose from, including 2.7K, some 4:3 ratio modes, and SuperView, which squeezes more into the top and bottom of the frame."
