Abysso: Extreme Depth Housing for Sony’s FDR-X3000

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 […]

Device comes with […]
