In addition, it can record 4K UHD video at 30 frames per second and full HD 1080p at up to 120 frames per second for slow motion playback. The camera has a weather sealed design so that it can be used in any weather conditions. Included in the box you will find a rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery, a battery charger, a USB 3.0 cable, a camera strap, a body cap and an eyepiece.
