We’ve all heard about GoPro cameras as more or less the standard choice when you want an action camera to record FPV footage, or just for shots in a tight space. As much as I like mine (I own three), it’s hard not to think that there needs to be other high-end competition to keep their products excellent.
Perhaps I haven’t been on top of other camera options though, as the FDR-X3000 action cam by Sony looks excellent. It’s capable of recording at 4k, and importantly, it features optical image stabilization. One disadvantage that a lesser-known camera would face is a relative lack of accessories, but if you’d specifically like to take it to a depth of 9000 feet, or 1.7 miles, the Abysso housing by Group B is built for just this purpose.
The housing is carved out of a block of 6061 aluminum, and is anodized a beautiful red color. Besides being capable of extreme depth, it also claims to be bulletproof and bombproof, though I’d assume testing this is best left to professionals. On the other hand, if you prefer, or perhaps are invested in, “another” action cam brand, Group B Distribution does have housings and accessories that can be used with other cameras, so be sure to give them a look!
