  • Digital 4K Video Camera Recorder
  • 1/2.3" Exmor R CMOS Sensor
  • 4K / 60p Ultra HD Recording
  • 3.5" Xtra Fine LCD
  • Professional-calibre XLR mic input and unparalleled image quality:
  • 4K (3840 x 2160 pixels) / 60p (59.94 Hz) video recording and output in an incredibly user-friendly form
  • Ready to capture the imaginations and eyes of even the most discerning videographers
  • 4K images will open your eyes to a new era of excitement:
  • Other camcorders typically support formats from SD (720 x 480) to Full HD (1920 x 1080)
  • But the FDR-AX1 supports 4K (3840 x 2160), the extraordinary superior-definition format that delivers about four times the resolution of the Full HD (1920 x 1080) format to capture incredible details that bring images to real, vibrant life
  • High-performance "G Lens" now upholds 4K quality in handier form:
  • The "G Lens" advances the Sony heritage of image processing innovation by redefining what an aspheric lens and special low-dispersion glass together can faithfully reproduce
  • Accordingly, the "G Lens" is specially tuned to capture qualities of definition and colour that put this ground-breaking Handycam in a class of its own
  • "Exmor R CMOS sensor" delivers multifaceted 4K support:
  • Sony's unique "Exmor R CMOS sensor" is essential to the stunning image quality that the FDR-AX1 achieves
  • Its back-illuminated structure featuring wiring layers on the back of a photodiode (light-receiving element) dramatically boosts low-light sensitivity for shooting better, more lifelike images even in dim lighting
  • Sony's cutting-edge technology also makes the camera nimble at reading massive 4K data at 60 fps
  • An image processor identical to a professional camcorder's:
  • An extraordinary image processor, identical to those in 4K camcorders used by professionals, rapidly processes signals transmitted from the CMOS sensor and finalizes images
  • In fact, in processing the vast 4K data in real time at 60 fps, it achieves four times the resolution of the HD format
  • Moreover, this processor not only features high-performance noise reduction for truer images and image quality adjustment functions for greater freedom of expression; it is also specially tuned for the FDR-AX1 to deliver image processing performance that accelerates the evolution of handy-type camera recorders
  • 4K (3840 x 2160 pixels) /60p (59.94 Hz) recording far surpasses Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels):
  • The FDR-AX1, the first 4K resolution Handycam, features a blazingly fast image processor identical to those included in Sony models for professional use
  • Because the camera can record 4K / 60p fps movies at its full resolution, even images shot while panning or when subjects were moving look extraordinarily smooth, sharp and true to life in playback
  • XAVC S consumer-use 4K/HD recording format:
  • The FDR-AX1 records 4K/HD movies in the XAVC S format, which was developed for consumer use based on the XAVC 4K/HD format suited for professional use
  • To extend the hours of 4K video capture capacity, XAVC S employs the Long GOP codec of H.264/AVC for video file compression
  • Moreover, the MP4 container format simplifies the handling of 4K videos* (* Playback of data is not guaranteed in all modes when using MP4 playback devices and software)
  • Professional-class audio XLR terminal:
  • In addition to a high-performance internal microphone, the FDR-AX1 features two external XLR mic terminals for connecting other microphones that can also be used to record superior quality audio together with the movies
  • You can also mix audio from recordings made using the internal microphone and externally connected microphones, respectively
  • Adopting the more capable XQD media card:
  • The FDR-AX1 adopts the next-generation XQD memory card that supports fast 4K/HD writing/reading and makes high bit-rate* recording possible
  • Data can be transferred to a PC rapidly using a XQD reader/writer via USB 3.0 connection
  • * XQD media card N-series, S-series and later types recommended
  • Viewing on 4K (3840 x 2160 pixels) TVs via single HDMI cable:
  • 4K videos recorded on the FDR-AX1 can be played on a 4K monitor using the bundled HDMI cable to connect the camera to the monitor
  • A 4K monitor supports up to 4K/30p Users who don't have a 4K television can play their 4K movies on a Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) monitor by changing the menu HDMI output settings to 1920 x 1080
  • ND filter terminal:
  • Three ND filters let you adjust the amount of light entering the image sensor from the lens
  • Also, the clear 1/4 filter, 1/16 filter and 1/64 filter settings give you the capability to match shooting conditions, as well as adjust the shutter speed and aperture even on bright, sunny days
  • Saving spectacular 4K video content to a PC:
  • In order to save 4K video data to a PC, there are two ways to connect a PC to FDR-AX1: either by using a USB cable, or by inserting a XQD memory card in a XQD reader/writerData can be downloaded to the PC, then managed and played (4K video playback depends on PC performance) with PlayMemories Home
  • You can also save the data to other media such as an external HDD from a PC (Use NTFS, exFAT or HFS+)
  • The video can be edited with XAVC S-compatible non-linear editing software
  • 4K video content can be shared by uploading it to YouTube
  • Independent zoom, focus and iris rings:
  • Independent zoom, focus and iris rings enable fast zooming, swift focusing and easy focus adjustment
  • Connecting for 4K (3840 x 2160 pixels) /60p (59.94 Hz) playback on BRAVIA 4K LED TVs:
  • To extend BRAVIA 4K LED TV compatibility, the FDR-AX1 has an original function to transmit 4K / 60P 4:2:0 8-bit signals using a single HDMI cable
  • In this way, you can view clear, smooth video of fast-moving sports and other subjects at 60p on BRAVIA 4K LED TVs
  • Paint functions:
  • The camera lets you combine and adjust any of five paint functions (white balance, gamma, detail, skin detail, matrix) in the paint menu, so you have the freedom to express a look or style as you like in your movie
  • TRILUMINOS Color. A breathtaking way to relive your fondest memories:
  • The FDR-AX1 supports Sony's "TRILUMINOS colour", allowing you to view photos and movies in rich, natural colours on any TV equipped with a "TRILUMINOS Display"
  • The expanded colour gamut lets you immerse yourself once again in those unforgettably colourful moments, from the complex shades in a shimmering blue sky to the natural tones of a rosy complexion
