New, Ultra-light, Micro-Four-Third Drone 4K Video Camera


Imagine Vision has released the smallest 4K m43 mount video camera ever, aimed at the drone market given its light weight and lack of LCD screen.

3840×2160 is supported at 30 fps and 4096×2160 at 24 fps (H264 codec).

This video camera can be remote controlled via a smartphone.

See Imagine Vision’s page about this video camera for more information.  No price has been announced as of yet.

Gizmodo’s Hands-On with Sony’s New 4K Action Camera


In Gizmodo’s blog post titled Sony 4K Action Cam Hands-On: Giving GoPro a Run for Its Money they provide a preview of the Sony X1000V action camera that is expected to be released in March of 2015 and sell for around $500USD.

GoPro has dominance in the action camera market, and based on Gizmodo’s post it does not sound like this camera from Sony will change that.
