About the Sony HDR-AX2000

The HDR-AX2000 Handycam camcorder delivers HD broadcast-quality moving images with the convenience of a non-linear recording format. With 24p Progressive Scan Mode, this camcorder's high-quality film-like motion lets you realize brilliant scene reproduction. CinemaTone Gamma and CinemaTone Color provide the HDR-AX2000 with the color and gamma range to give your footage an even more film-like feel.

Three 1/3" Exmor CMOS image sensors with Exmor derived technology capture sharp, detailed images even in lower-light (1.5 LUX) situations. The 29.5mm wide-angle to 590mm telephoto Sony G Lens allows for wider angle shooting and brings the action closer (20X optical). Three built-in neutral density filters and three manual rings provide even more flexibility.

Sony HDR-AX2000 Features

  • Film-like Progressive Recording 24p/30p: In addition to 1080/60i recording, the HDR-AX2000 offers a 1080/24p and 1080/30p Progressive Scan mode that enables shooting with film-like results
  • 3x 1/3" ClearVid CMOS Sensors w/ Exmor technology: The HDR-AX2000 features three 1/3" ClearVid CMOS Sensors, each having 1,120K total pixels. The 3 independent CMOS sensors each handle one of the color elements - red, green, blue (RGB) - improving the color reproduction of video recordings
  • Optical SteadyShot image stabilization w/ Active Mode: It improves on existing Optical SteadyShot image stabilization by allowing camera lens to shift over a greater range of motion allowing the camera to compensate for greater degrees of camera shake & deliver a stunning level of image smoothness
  • 3x manual rings for superior control (zoom, focus and iris): The HDR-AX2000 has three independent manual rings (zoom, focus and IRIS ) for superior control and flexibility while filming which make it easier to promptly make adjustments to meet shooting needs.
  • Manual Gain/Shutter/White Balance Adjustment: The ability to manually adjust gain, shutter speed and white balance makes it possible to fine-tune the HDR-AX2000 model's settings for near-professional operability and advanced image expression.
  • Additional record and zoom lever control on handle: A record start/stop button is featured on the handle as well as on the side grip. The zoom lever enables easy zooming even when shooting from a low angle.
  • HDMI Connection: HDMI connectivity provides a simple, high-quality video and audio connection, with the ability to transmit HD video from the camcorder to compatible HDTVs via a single cable.
  • Picture Profile (up to 6): Allows the user to set manual adjustments for a scene (color, sharpness, white balance, etc) into any one of 6 customizable presets, so they can be called up at just the touch of a button
  • Histogram display: When the histogram feature is turned on, a graph of the image's brightness distribution appears. This gives you an objective determination of whether the video image as a whole is bright or dim.
  • Color Bar: Four types of Color Bars are available for use. These are convenient for color adjustment when playing back images on a TV or monitor.
  • Up to 24Mbps AVCHD video: The HDR-AX2000 can capture video at up to 24Mbps for amazing clarity and detail, ideal for recording on to Blu-ray media since the AVCHD2 codec is highly compatible with the Blu-ray format.
  • Dual XLR Professional Audio Inputs: Professional quality video requires professional quality audio. Featuring dual XLR 3-pin audio jacks, you will be able to provide +48V phantom power to external microphones.
  • CinemaTone Gamma and CinemaTone Color: Users seeking extra control over image expression can use "Cinematone Gamma" to deepen the color and "Cinematone Color" to recreate film-like color tones.
  • 3.2" Xtra Fine LCD display (921k pixels): The 3.2" Wide (16:9) Touch Panel Xtra Fine LCD screen 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
  • Minus Auto Gain Control (Minus AGC): When shooting in overly bright conditions, this feature enables the selection of gain settings in the negative range for satisfying results with minimal noise.
  • Improved Noise Reduction (w/ Exmor col. A/D conversion): Exmor technology captures video with high resolution, high sensitivity and exceptional detail. Advanced on-sensor A/D conversion and dual noise reduction yields rich tonal reproduction with high signal-to-noise ratio.
  • Dual Memory Stick PRO Duo Media Slots: Capture still images directly onto one of two selectable Memory Stick PRO Duo media slots for easy transfer to PCs for emailing, printing, or sharing with other compatible Memory Stick devices (sold separately).
  • x.v. Color Technology: x.v.Color technology can capture or display nearly twice as many (1.8x) viewable colors than possible with the traditional RGB color standard. This provides a more accurate and vivid color range, for a more natural, lifelike overall experience.
  • Peaking: This feature emphasizes the screen's edge in the LCD and viewfinder, making it easier to adjust the focus. You can change the peaking color to white, red, or yellow according to the color of the subject and you can also set the peaking level to high, medium, or low
  • Fader: To enhance viewing enjoyment, users can create transitions between scenes by using the White fader or Black fader to fade images in and out.
  • Superior low-light (1.5 LUX) shooting capabilities: Superior low-light ability with high sensitivity enables clear shooting of subjects in light as low as 1.5 lux (at 1/30 fixed shutter speed with auto iris and auto gain).
  • Wide Angle G-Lens: 29.5mm Wide to 590mm (20x) Telephoto: It is equipped with a 29.5mm wide-angle "G Lens" made from 10 group, 15 element lens including "Extra-low Dispersion glass" which reduces chromatic aberration caused by light refraction and produces video with extremely low color fringing.
  • 3x built-in neutral density (ND) filters: Gain more color control in extreme settings with three built-in ND filters for adjusting the amount of light entering the Image Sensor through the lens. Depending on shooting conditions, the operator can chose from Clear, 1/4, 1/16, or 1/64 filters
  • Enhanced Imaging Processor (EIP) Technology: The EIP processor is able to rapidly process the vast amounts of pixel data read from the "3 ClearVid CMOS Sensor" and record beautiful HD and colorful video.
  • Assignable Buttons: This feature allows you to assign features you use often to shortcut buttons. The commonly used features can be used quickly without going through a menu selection (default: Zebra, AE Shift and Record Review).
