Ever heard of a GoPro? Well, forget about it. Sony has a new ‘Action Cam’ model, and it can film in 4K. That’s like…4 K’s.

The beautifully titled X1000V looks exactly like previous Action Cam products, although it can now shoot 4K at 30fps, 1080p at 120 fps or 720p video at 240 fps. The camera also now has manual exposure controls, a back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS sensor, an ultra-wide-angle 170 degree lens, and Sony’s Bionz X image processor as the icing on the cake.

Also, Tony Hawk cares about 4K, and loves the Action Cam. “It puts [viewers] right in the POV.” More at 11.
