The Sony FDR-AX100 Full HD Camcorder brings 4K Ultra HD video to the palm of your hand, delivering resolution four times that of Full HD. The 1" Exmor R CMOS sensor is approximately 8x larger than that of typical camcorders, allowing you to capture cinematic images with shallow depth-of-field for defocused backgrounds. The camcorder features a wide-angle Zeiss Vario Sonnar T lens with 12x optical zoom plus 24x Clear Image digital zoom. Optical SteadyShot image stabilization with Active Mode delivers smooth video and 3-Way-Shake-Canceling adds electronic roll stability for even smoother results.
The Sony FDR-AX100 is a versatile camcorder that lets you capture 4K Ultra HD 3840x2160 video at 24 and 30 fps. You can also record Full HD 1920x1080 video in XAVC S, AVCHD, or web-optimized MP4, as well as take high-quality 20MP still images. Frame your shots using either the large 3.5" XtraFine LCD touchscreen, or with the high-contrast 0.39" OLED EVF. For connectivity, the camcorder provides a USB 2.0 port, Micro HDMI output and a Composite Video output. Built-in Wi-Fi and NFC support lets you use your smartphone or tablet to control the camera, as well as wirelessly transfer files to your mobile device for sharing and back up data on your computer.

XAVC S 4K and HD are amazing. ND filters are very helpful (ND2 and ND3 affect color slightly). Manual Control buttons are well designed. EVF is great. Monitor is very high quality. Power consumption is improved (battery time is very good). The SDXC chamber should be in the bottom of the camcorder so there is no need to open the monitor in some occasions. The monitor should have a latch to prevent it from opening inadvertently or due to gravity. Digital ZOOM should be limited up to the useful level only. Lens barrel distortion should have been minimized more. Faster focusing response for panning. Gain should go lower than -3dB for a very sunny day due to ND2 and ND3 effects.
