    • Description

      The Sony FDR-AX100 supports 4K resolution (3840 x 2160 pixels), the high-definition format that delivers about 4x the detail of Full HD. Its back-illuminated 1.0-type Exmor R CMOS image sensor delivers great image quality, high sensitivity & background defocusing.

      Get a cinema-worthy finish with 4K technology
      The FDR-AX100 supports 4K (3840 x 2160), the superior-definition format that delivers about four times the resolution of Full HD. It lets you capture incredible detail and bring images to life.

      Sharp, detailed video with a 1.0 type sensor
      The FDR-AX100 features a large Exmor R CMOS sensor with a light-receiving area that is approximately 4.9 times larger than 1/2.88 type image sensor. This newly employed sensor enhances image clarity, reduces noise even when shooting in dark environments, and enables image expression that takes full advantage of background defocusing.

      Advanced BIONZ X image processing engine
      The advanced BIONZ X image processing engine features higher technology than in the previous generation of BIONZ to achieve more faithful reproduction, more naturally vivid and lifelike image quality, and higher resolution capabilities. This model is equipped with several new features that take advantage of the higher speed processing capabilities. These include By Pixel Super Resolution, Motion Shot Video, Optical SteadyShot and Dual Video Recording.

      Record in two formats at the same time. Film in XAVC S for 4K footage, AVCHD for high quality video, or MP4 for online sharing.

      29mm wide-angle ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T* lens
      ZEISS lens is fine-tuned specifically for the 4K image standard. Ideal for capturing grand landscapes, it also provides up to 12x optical zoom and up to 24x Clear Image Zoom to allow wide-ranging image expression.Definition is even sharp in the corners of the frame, thanks to the 11 group/17 element lens that incorporates AA (advanced aspherical) and ED lens elements.

      Get the clearest view with an OLED Tru-Finder
      Compose your scene with the truest view in exceptional contrast and colour.

      High-frame-rate shooting at 120p and HD resolution
      The FDR-AX100 supports high-frame-rate shooting at HD image quality (1280 x 720 pixels). Its ability to record at 120p enables slow-motion playback at one-fifth the speed in a 24p environment when post-processing is applied. This capability opens the door to various uses, such as checking the form of rapidly moving athletes.Only available when recording movies in the XAVC S format.

      Built-in ND Filters
      A choice of selectable Clear, 1/4 filter, 1/16 filter or 1/64 ND (Neutral Density) filters adjusts light levels entering the lens. This gives video-makers the freedom to precisely control shutter speed and aperture for greater creative possibilities. In conjunction with the camcorder’s large image sensor, it allows creation of beautifully smooth ‘bokeh’ background defocus effects without increasing shutter speed even if you’re shooting outdoors in sunny conditions.

      Simple wireless connectivity with smartphones and more
      Connect wirelessly with your phone, tablet or TV Built-in Wi-Fi and NFC lets you wirelessly transfer movie clips and photos from Handycam® to your smartphone or tablet at a single touch. To get started, just download the free PlayMemories Mobile app for your iOS or Android device. Touching Handycam® with your NFC-enabled mobile device also activates Smart Remote Control. Start and stop recording with your mobile – it’s ideal for nightscape shooting that you want to avoid blur caused by operation button pressing, group scenes or solo performances when you don’t want to run from the camcorder back into the scene once recording’s started. Wi-Fi also allows wireless playback of content stored on Handycam on your networked TV (DLNA renderer compatible TV and access point are required: not compatible with XAVC S format).

      Picture Effects
      Creativity comes easy with FDR-AX100 thanks to Picture Effect with 7 total effects — such as Toy Camera, Soft high key, Pop Color, Posterization, Retro Photo, Partial Color, High contrast monochrome
— which give you the means to transform everyday photos into impressive works of art. As you apply effects, results are shown in real-time on the LCD screen. There is some function like Face detection that cannot be used while using Picture effect.

      5.1ch Dolby
      5.1ch surround sound recording capabilities let you create professional-level soundtracks that bring out the full potential of your movies. So viewers feel they are part of the action. Notes: Dolby Digital 5.1ch and stereo 2ch recording are supported in the AVCHD format. PCM recording is supported in the XAVC S format.
