Capture the finest details in 4k (Full HD 4x resolution , QFHD: 3840 x 2160). This Sony FDR-AX100 4K Ultra HD Camcorder allows incredibly high resolution, to produce vibrant and extremely realistic images. What’s more, the blazingly fast image processor is the same one employed in professional Sony models, making it possible to record 30p movies at the camera’s full resolution for incredibly smooth and sharp playback, with no loss in realism, even when panning the camera and shooting moving subjects.

The camcorder features Sony's first 1.0" Exmor R CMOS sensor. The back-illuminated technology improves low-light sensitivity and combines with Sony's Column A/D Conversion to reduce noise by 50%. This is great when shooting in dimly lit environments such as night landscapes or indoor scenes. Create cinematic video with 14MP resolution sensor (for video) and high quality 20MP still images.

The FDR-AX100 records HD movies in the XAVC-S format, which uses MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 for video compression and linear PCM for audio compression, while saving files in a MP42 wrapper. The highly compressed files allow extensive record times. The camcorder also records in AVCHD, ideal for quality video for HDTV and Blu-ray disc burning. Additionally, the camcorder can shoot MP4 HD video, which is ideal for sharing over the internet at up to 28Mbps. Having the ability to switch between all three of three formats makes this camcorder an ideal tool that is versatile for creating content to live in a number of different environments.

The FDR-AX100 comes equipped with a newly developed Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* lens that has cleared a series of tough performance tests. Not only is this 29mm wide-angle lens ideal for capturing grand landscapes, but it covers wide-ranging image expression thanks to maximum 12x optical zoom and 24x Clear Image zoom.

Users can expand photographic and movie shooting possibilities by attaching optional accessories via the Multi Interface Shoe, including an electronic viewfinder, powerful external flash and stereo microphone. You can also connect with a compatible remote control via Multi Terminal.

The new BIONZ X image processor enables the camcorder to create more naturally vivid and lifelike image quality, and higher resolution imagery. Notable features of BIONZ X technology include: 1. Detail reproduction technology optimally filters edges and textures differently depending on the scene. 2. Area specific noise reduction swiftly and efficiently analyzes the subject and reduces noise. This new image processing technology achieves an even better balance of exceptional detail and advanced noise control. Its ability to record at 120p enables slow-motion playback at one-fifth the speed in a 24p environment in post-processing.

Optical SteadyShot™ Image Stabilization with Intelligent Active Mode is an advanced optical image stabilization technology that corrects camera shake to capture scenes with phenomenal smoothness and stability. Intelligent Active Mode analyzes video frames and provides compensation with assistance from the new BIONZ X image processing engine. Whether recording movies while strolling on vacation, shooting while chasing a child, or zooming in to capture faraway subjects, Handycam’s simple solution smoothly reproduces the scene with a higher level of stability.

The FDR-AX100 employs high contrast a 0.39” OLED Tru-Finder EVF which reproduces rich color and deep black. A new optical design of the EVF, using four dual-surface aspherical lenses, allows for a 33-degree wide angle view that is amazing clear through the edge of the view finder. The 3.5” (16:9) Xtra Fine LCD™ screen (921K) displays sharp, bright, vivid images, letting you compose a shot more easily even outdoors, while enabling you to change settings to best represent the scene.

Connectivity with smartphones for One-touch sharing/One-touch remote has been simplified with Wi-Fi /NFC control. In addition to Wi-Fi support for connecting to smartphones, the FDR-AX100 also supports NFC (near field communication) providing touch connection convenience when transferring images to Android™ smartphones and tablets. Users need only touch devices to connect; no complex set-up is required. Moreover, when using Smart Remote Control — a feature that allows shutter release to be controlled by a smartphone — connection between FDR-AX100 and the smartphone can be established by simply touching devices.
