Handcam glove for Sony X3000?

Recommended Posts

I considered making a housing for it, but I decided there are too many things working against the X3000 as a handcam:
- The image stabilizer crops the image, so you won't be able to use that stabilizing feature for a 170 degree FOV shot
- Long and slim form factor puts the lens closer to the subject, once again impeding the FOV
- Card slot location is underneath, which makes it not quick and easy to access

I do make a flat top universal glove mount. That could work using the camera's stock mount for flat surface.

Well how bad is that tradeoff in FOV? I'm thinking that my GoPro4 Black is pretty much useless for handcam (nigh impossible to hold that thing steady) and a GoPro5 uses electronig stablization, which also means sacrificing FOV?

Would a GoPro5 be better suited than the Sony X3000?
