Better off getting a dji osmo or hero 8 at this price

Even a hero 7 at around £200 is a better option .

Depends what you want, the form factor of the Sony suits some things better than the blocky Osmo or GoPro. The image stabilizing is pretty good on these, gives a more natural affect, where the other two it's either super smooth reducing the action affect making it look like your riding down a newly paved road when in fact it's super bumpy or the software stabilisation is off and it makes for an eyesore video.

All three have their pros and cons. I've had all three.

Maybe so on the form factor but it's limited to 3840 x 2160 30p/25p/24p. Whereas the Osmo or Hero 8 has 60fps.

True, was basically just saying it might not be a straight get this one over that one chose for some.
Amazing camera, however surprised how expensive it is considering it's age. I don't think I'd pay more than £150 as It rivals H5B and at that time had a better stabilization due to being optical and better sound. It still can compete with mid range cameras, however at this price range I would go for lates cameras HB8, Dji
