The main bias of this action camera seems to be in camera technology, at the expense of usability. Whether you want to go for this depends on your priorities. The GoPro Hero3 Black may out-perform this camera in some areas, but do keep in mind the cost difference between the two.

I personally prefer the elongated form of this camera. Someone else may prefer the box form factor.

NOTE: I'm not an action man - I'm using a pair of these to shoot ultrawide FOV stereoscpic footage. I don't have insights on the action/field usage of this camera.

Pros:
+ Sharpest image in the market, with up to 170 degrees FOV
+ Best, least noisy low light performance in the market thanks to the back-lit sensor
+ Very clean high quality stereo sound (by action camera standards), both from the internal microphones and the external input (which also takes stereo!). The noise floor is fair enough - for an action camera.
+ With the latest firmware update, it can shoot 1080P at 60 frames per second. 720p 120fps slow motion mode also available (this requires daylight due to short exposure).
+ Surprisingly good digital image stabilization (limited to 120 degrees FOV) - among the better ones I've seen.
+ Smooth white balance / exposure adaptation. No sudden jumps. Works well for long time lapses too.

Cons:
- Very poor mountability. The camera itself is impossible to mount on anything on its own due to its rounded shape and the lack of a tripod screw on the chassis. It comes with a waterproof housing with a tripod screw - and that's it. All other mounting accessories need to be purchased separately.

Amazing.
My mate has the Go Pro 3 Silver and we were both waiting to compare the two,
I have to say the Sony is better, what stands it apart is the Steady Shot and video
quality. delivery was a day earlier than quoted so well pleased.

I have been considering an action cam for a while and almost bought the leading competition's top model (black edition) until I saw this. The quality is fantastic, and after installing the v3 update found more video options and features than advertised. 1080p 60fps for one. The camera and case feel well made at half the price. No freezing.

The number one complaint about this cam is it's mounting options. This simply is not true. Sony designed the camera to be tripod mount compatible meaning it is not restricted to specific aftermarket mounts. There are loads of different mounts available at excellent prices. I bought an awesome ram mount at a bargain from Amazon.

The live view mode through the playmemories app is almost instant. No 4 second delays.

The enclosed instructions are not easy to follow, but there are plenty of online tutorials. The menu is easy once you get the hang of it.

I'm glad I chose this over the competition.

An accomplished HD action video camera in a very small package. Once tha latest firmware version is installed, 60 PS at full 1080p is possible as one of the number of video settings. Because the camera has a rounded case, it has to be mounted in its protective clear carrier to be attached to a tripod or stood on a flat surface. This has the disadvantage of covering the stereo microphone and much reduces the capture of sound. The quality of the recorded video is excellent and the sound capture, if not in the protective case, is equally good.
