The camcorder features a bright, high-contrast 0.39" type OLED Tru-Finder™ which reproduces rich color and deep blacks. A new optical design of the Electronic View Finder, using four dual-surface aspherical lenses, allows for a 31-degree wide angle view for crisp edge-to-edge visibility. The 3.5" (16:9) WhiteMagic™ LCD™ screen (921K) displays sharp, vivid images, so consumers can compose shots more easily and even change settings to best represent the scene.
Sony's AX100 camcorder gives filmmakers more control over shutter speed and aperture by offering a choice of selectable Clear, 1/4 filter, 1/16 filter or 1/64 Neutral Density (ND) filters to adjust light levels entering the lens. Together with its large image sensor, the built-in ND filters enables "bokeh" effects even in bright conditions without increasing shutter speed. An easily accessible lens ring provides fingertip control of focus or zoom. Film enthusiasts will also appreciate the side-mounted dial that can be assigned functions like gain or brightness, making it easy to control even when looking through the electronic viewfinder.
